Feline Friday -- The Canine Edition

Today's Feline Friday post has been hijacked by a dog!

The canine portion of our family is feeling neglected.  And ... being the little Diva that she is .... she is going to be the first "guest" dog on Feline Friday.

Please meet Harley Divason .... yes that's her registered name.  We usually refer to her as "The Har".  Harley is my crazy little Papillon.  And yes, she truly is crazy.  She says quirky, but trust me, it's crazy. 
This picture was from Bark in the Park.  Our local minor league baseball team sponsors one night each season that you can bring your dogs to the game.  Harley attended with her pack mates, Lexie and Teddy. She did fine except for when a strange lady tried to pet her.  The Har wanted no part of that.  When will people understand that she's only to be touched by her "staff"?

Most of the time Miss Harley sports a pink stripe in her tail and pink toe nails.  Pink is her signature color.  She has several pink dresses and coats and she loves wearing them.  She loves going to the spa and having her "hair" done.  She considers our groomer, Gayle, as part of her staff so she's OK with spa days.
Notice the pink feather in her hair above .... her alter ego is Lola (she's a show girl) .... and if you sing Copacabana to her, she'll prance around.  She is a true little diva and I love this little doggie with all my heart.  She's one of the two family princesses. 

Oh and Har wants me to add that she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her kitties.  They are the best playmates ever!  She especially loves that little spotted one! They play tag all the time.  She says that not all of the kitties appreciate her willingness to play, but those Bengals really do! She's sure that eventually that big, black kitty will learn and quit hissing at her and smacking her on the nose!

Happy Feline Friday, Y'all!!

Weekend Wrap Up

There's not much weekend to wrap up actually, I even missed posting on Feline Friday due to all the hoop jumping I'm having to do to get my revision surgery scheduled.  So I spent almost all of Friday at the hospital attending nutrition classes, and having a psych evaluation, and learning about a procedure I'm already familiar with ....  but whatever it takes at this point.

I did get a couple more Lucy Boston blocks done and as promised here are a couple picture of those:

I've got a couple ready to go with me this week on the 2013 Mountain Quilt Quest with my friends Debbie and Susan.  I'm looking forward to it even though I'm still a little sore from my "ex-plant."  This is what the hospital calls a band removal: Ex-plant.  I kind of like that word.  So anyway, hopefully I'll be a diligent little shop hopper and take lots of pictures to share.  No promises though because I always have good intentions and usually come home with very few or no photographs to share. 

Oh ... and I did get the binding done on a very special quilt which I will deliver this week!  So there was at least a little progress made this past weekend.
