Tuesday Treasure - our pet

Melody has suggested we share a bit about our pets for Tuesday Treasures....
if you like you can join us - just link up HERE or just go and read stories of other people's treasures

Hubz and I found Tarka at the pound... so we don't actually know how old she is but we have had her for 8 years .....

Like me she is a reluctant model....

"you know these colours don't suit me"
"no treat... no pictures"
"BORING" 
"did you know dogs have menopause symptoms too?"

Tarka is not overindulged.. she just needed her own place mat (mug rug??)....

Like me her waist is thickening.....

I think she is a bit of terrier (she is a natural hunter - which is not good for the lizards I love, but she has caught mice and even killed a snake), looks like a bit of corgi in there - an incredibly sweet tempered girl who I think may have been abused before we got her - she has a 'thing' about banging doors and won't go through one if you are still holding it .....

and while we are on the subject of Melody (the TT hostess) I am doing her free BOM and this is February's section done .....


... and how the two months go together .... taking shape nicely 



Righto.... Gotto Go.... 270 of these little half square triangles for squaring up....


Have a great week.. full of treasures....

Tarka is a real sweetie and so glad she got to live with you and I can see how 'under' indulged she is with her own mat. Quite the quilt critic by the looks too.

Tarka is beautiful. It's funny how we become friends with like minded people. We think Sam was abused before we got him, he was snappy and nervous when we got him..Ha..look at him now - not a care in the world. I am trying to do a post about Lady...but real life is taking over again. Hugs

Hey Fiona! Tarka is a sweetie ... in your pics and in real life. Can't say I blame her about the slamming doors ... they make me jump too! :0) Lots of stitching happening at your place ... can't wait to see what those HST's will become. Happy Stitching! Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!
KRIS

Tarka is beautiful, thicker waste or not.

Kathy said...

What a sweetie :) At her mature age she probably isn't too keen on having her photo taken - so much fuss!

Love your penny rug, yours it a bit more advanced than mine!
