Ode to Houdini
A while back, there was a One-Legged Chicken and a Runaway Dog featuring over at Myrtle and Eunice....
It reminded me so much of my little puppy dog Houdini (not his real name).
Over the years, I've lost count of the number of times Houdini Dog has escaped and run away due to the *PO gene that he inherited from his daddy dog Riley.
On one of his most memorable escapes, he made his way to my mum's house, enticed her dog out onto the street, and then ended up in the dog catchers van. There was a huge fee to bail them both out of the dog pound, and then a council fine for me in the mail two weeks later for having a 'dog at large' (he's so scary that he might just lick you to death)!.
When I opened the parcel that arrived yesterday, I was thrilled to receive the beautiful piece of fabric. It took me a minute to realise that there was something actually wrapped in the fabric.
Tania, you've outdone yourself, it's brilliant and I love it!
