Happy New Year



This is the first post of the new year, and I wish to all my blogger friends ( and to two nice persons which comments I've lost, please, write again!)a very happy 2010.
I wish to start with the last image of the 2009: two amigurumis I made following the instructions on the Lion Brand site, with the resolution to make a lot of them!
The next pic is the first of the new year, and a story I wish to tell, because restore my faith in the human genre for a moment.
Her name is Molly and she's been abandoned. She's been wandering around our small city for about two years. Fortunately, nobody make her any harm, on the contrary, being a very sweet dog, was adopted by all, and she learned to be a very educate host out of the snack bar or out of the butcher's , which always had a bit of meat for her. During the Winter she found always a shelter under the porticoes or in bathrooms of the Public Garden, and this was perhaps the cause of her accident. The Public Garden close the gate at sunrise, and Molly, in search of a shelter for the night, attempted to jump it and got one paw trapped between the iron bars of the gate. She was found in the morning badly injured, since she was hunging by the paw, and losing a lot of blood.
A young couple took her to the vet, then she underwent a very costly surgery. Now she is recovering, and exercising her paw. She found a home too, since the young couple adopted her. She accepted to be "domesticated"; but at one condition: everyday she must walk to the snack bar for breakfast and to the butcher's shop for a bit of meat, and to got a pat of all her friends.

I was afraid to hear something bad was to happen to the street dog, but thank goodness you said a couple adopted it. Animals are such survivors, although, I don't think Fluffy will ever make it on his own outside our apartment door! (He is over-domesticated. Like his mistress. Haha!)

Would love to hear more about this New Year story!

Me too I was afraid to read further down. I am a big dog lover! Our previous dog was a rescue and our current dog was one too. I am sad he got her, but so HAPPY he found a good home!! His life would make a wonderful Walt Disney movie for kids!! Hmmm... I wonder what name they gave him. Many blessing to the young couple that not opened their wallets, but their hearts. Lovely story my friend. xo...

Oops see I was so afraid to read that I called her a "he" AND she does have a name Molly. LOL... xo

Dear Juanita,

All the best for 2010 as I haven't talked to you this year :)

What a touching story... I almost had tears in my eyes while reading - and was afraid to read about what happened after the poor Molly was found... It is amazing she has survived. It is so sad to see how most innocent creatures happen to suffer. I hope she likes her new home and never suffers again.

A big Hug,

Olga

What a happy ending to the puppy story. It breaks my heart to see stray animals, so much that we have a few too many in our houshold.

Thanks for the cornstarch dough recipe. I bet your recipe is GREAT for jewlery making. We will be trying it!
