Sitting patiently at the dinner table was very nice.

Our boy Shiva has left the building. He's gone where other larger than life beings go, like Elvis. Oddly enough I'm really pleased to feel this enormous hole because what made the hole was so very worth it. We left nothing on the table.IMG_3532.jpg IMG_3431.jpg Cake and Waki are doing quite well. Naturally they have their emotions but also there had been play and joy. I think they really understood even better that we humans just how hard the last bit was for our boy Shiva. He did nearly a year in a wheel chair with grace and even on his last day had some moments of joy even through the failing of his body. What a blessing he was. I think Waki puts it best: IMG_2543.jpg (ok that could be interpreted as dead dog but trust me it's joy and happiness at this good earth and the things that make life the best).

R.I.P Shiva. Enjoyed getting to know you a bit over the last couple of years. Sorry for your loss Sherab and pack.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner, Shiva had a great run - lived a long and HAPPY life (from reading the posts).

 

He travels on to other pastures now ...

Today's guest story tellers are River Otter and Tree Stump. The seasons have changed but not much else at Cookie Land. IMGP1422.jpg There was wood cut season. IMGP1367 (1).jpg IMG_4126 (1).jpg Quite right. Not a bad way to go, for us dead trees. I think the man missed his helpful dog. IMGP1423.jpg Why yes. The little dogs just want to have fun. Who can blame them? IMG_0377.jpg IMG_3971 (1).jpg The man put in a dog door. That could be great fun. IMGP1405 (2).jpg IMGP1391.jpg IMG_4127.jpg The blond one didn't like it. It touched her bottom and made a THUP noise behind her. IMG_4097.jpg The woman and the black dog showed her in and out. Used almost half a bucket of liver treats but to no avail. Smart and willful the blond one would rather sit at the other door and wait for the woman to open it and let in all the cold air too. Over a month goes by and the woman gives up. IMGP1423.jpg Then the Blond One just starts using the door as if it had always been. In and Out. IMG_4018.jpg It is the spring time of the mind. Joy. IMG_4005.jpg Except if the vacuum cleaner is lurking behind the drafting table. Then there is a song of protest. Always put the vacuum cleaner back in the cabinet. Happy Winter. IMG_4030 (1).jpg

IMG_4347.jpg Today's greeting is brought to you by the letter C and the color Brown. Happy Spring. Although I'm not sure I believe it. It's been faux spring 5 times already. Sure the robins are back and last night about 30 sand hill cranes flew over head but I'm still suspicious. IMG_4344 (1).jpg Although Cake is looking Brown and that's the color of dirt so maybe, just maybe it's time.

We are waiting for a glass kiln. IMGP1336 (1).jpg I made this "ornament" in class and I have the materials to make my own here in the studio. Hopefully the kiln will get here and I'll work out the firing schedule and the decal printing process so that we can consider making some keep sakes for this year's micro gathering. The studio elves are certainly ready to appear from nowhere and help. IMGP1471.jpg IMGP1553 (1).jpg IMGP1546 (1).jpg

I don't want to be greedy; one house elf would be plenty.

C, it looks like Lilli on a white or light background with not too much detail in the background or Kona on a uniformly dark background - think school photos - works best.

IMG_4685 (2).jpg Not sure why my photos are uploading as either little - same size as thumb print so don't bother to click on them or Ginormous but I'll have to solve that another day. Right now they are uploaded as ginormous in case you wish to view the flowers. The leaves have unfurled here. It's glorious spring. The little dogs favorite place is not the wee bridge Scott built. Its outside the fence so still slightly forbidden. Hope your spring is likewise glorious.IMG_4707 (2).jpg IMG_4740 (2).jpg IMG_4754.jpg IMG_4757.jpg IMG_4759 (1).jpg
