After I sold my Dairy Queen 6 years ago I had big plans to go to a dog grooming school and set up a business grooming dogs. But it didn't happen. I just never had a time when I had someone to care for Gage..and the schooling was pretty expensive too. Any money I made in selling my DQ business pretty much got eaten up by the taxes. Recently I have been thinking it would be fun to make little doggie accessories that maybe someday could become a business.
Yesterday I started making these bows.
Doggie bows with a rubberband are so hard to find and the only kind that work well with my dogs. Besides being hard to find, they also can really add up in cost. These bows I have paid from $1 to $4 each! I am happy I finally decided to start making them...and though these are very basic I look forward to making fancier ones.
I was inspired to start making them because my Mother's puppy, Annie, was needing some so she could see.
Our sweet old girl Dafney (who is 13 years old now) has worn a bow all her life.
My dog Daisy ended up getting a haircut the other day. I like to keep her hair long..but her grooming got away from me a bit and I decided to give her a spring haircut and let her grow a fresh new coat.
At first she was so mad at me she wouldn't even look at me. She seemed embarrassed.
But she has started to forgive me. She shivers a bit--I guess she feels really naked now :) Time for me to start making her some new outfits!
Our yard has new flowers blooming everyday..and new weeds too! Seems like the weeds grow faster then I can pull them...but I feel that way every year in April.
My Mom gave me some tulips from her house...
I love bringing the outside in!
Today I just wanted to say to how much I appreciate all of you. I don't try to be anything I'm not...and I do not have an exciting life or a lot of money...but I get such positive feedback and inspiration from your comments and from visiting your blogs. You all enrich my life and make me feel so good about everything I do have. When you put yourself out there you open yourself up to a lot of negative stuff. I hope I am not jinxing myself, but I have had nothing but positive experiences and I just want to thank you all for that! If people only use the internet to support each other, as I have experienced with my blog, the world would be a better place. :)
Thanks for being there!
