Sparkle N Sprinkle August Blog Hop

Wow, can you believe it's another blog hop already!? We are featuring our furry friends in August. I, for one, am certainly glad I don't have to wear a fur coat in this heat. Here's a picture of my very loved, very spoiled companion doing what she does best.

Hope you had a good visit with Shona. Come on in through the doggy door and I'll show you what I've been up to.  I chose Dogs-Sharpei Stamp Set 229. They are all so cute, but I have to admit, my favorite is the Sharpei. All those wrinkles - I know how ya feel. LOL





How cute is this stamp!

Ever faithful, ever loyal, the retriever.
