Four years ago we adopted two dogs from the RSPCA at Southridge. The above photo is Chico, 14 year old cross breed and the photo below is Disney, a 19 year old cross breed, our other recued dog. She's sitting next to our beloved Harley who was at least 19 years when he sadly died last year.
When we popped along to the RSPCA to look for a dog we only ever intended to have one dog not two!
Disney and Chico were together in the same pen and has been together all their lives. They came from owners who had to go back to work full time and not from bad homes as some of the poor soles that were with the RSPCA. We also deicded to keep with their names too.
When we first saw Disney and Chico we knew right away that these were the dogs for us, l fell in love with both of them and Disney just melted my heart. After all the usual home checks and background checks that the RSPCA do before you adopt any of the animals in their care we were finaly aloud to bring our two doggies, Disney and Chico home.
I cant ever imagine life without animals, they bring such joy and love in to our lives and its a pleausre to be able to share their lives too.

It's called a 'granny ripple blanket' that l have made and it is for me when l go out on my mobility scooter. I stumbled on this design on a crochet/knitting forum called Ravelry, oh you must go and visit Ravelry sometime its a great place to meet other like minded crafty people. The yarn l used is called Special by Stylecraft and l purchased it from Mason's. I did sit down and mixed and matched colours in the order l wanted to use them, something l have never done before. A truly lovely soft yarn to work with. My blanket measures 26'' by 49''. I am very pleased with the end result, very pleased indeed. The photo below is my blanket laid out in its full glory, oh and at the end of the blanket is our dear dog Disney!Please come back real soon as my next post will be all about my favourite blogs, ta ta for now xx
