My beloved Shaw died six weeks ago, leaving Frida without a companion. She likes lots of people and dogs around her. Also, living alone, I like to have two dogs about the place. They are outside dogs for the above reason of living alone.
A random event occurred where I was offered a German Shepherd dog. The owner died and her son having three Yorkies, offered this beauty to me.
Missy is three years old but looks around one year. Also acts like a one year old dog. Her original home was in a city where fireworks are prohibited. The poor thing comes to me in a city where anything goes. The fireworks started going off about one week ago and Missy is now getting sedated every night. It helps marginally. I read about Thundershirts and I ordered two, one for Frida and one for Missy. Hopefully, the shirts come today and hopefully they work.
I am counting the days until July 6. That is about when people will run out of the M80's.
P.S. This is not a photo of the lovely Missy, but when I saw it on Pinterest, I couldn't resist.

This tapestry came from Japan. My mother was given several but what happened to them I don't know. I was given this lovely tapestry and I wanted to use it in a purse but for a while I had to "thin on it". Then I started pulling out fabrics and when I put it next to the leopard weave, I said "Eureka"........ Sometimes the least amount of thinking allows the inner mind to operate and this time I was totally satisfied with the combination.
I lined it with black Satin and it has a leopard pocket. I have a lot of sub structure that cannot be seen but it allows the purse to have a stand alone feeling and it won't collapse when it is left by itself. Handy to rummage in the inside!
