Maisie's wish came through and we finally had our first big snowstorm of the year! It snowed about 8-10 inches on Saturday and it's been cold. I love this picture of her...she was fascinated with my snow boot and was chasing me up and down the yard trying to get a piece of it. Her ears are so sweet here...kind of like a donkey (Amy, Katherine...are you smiling yet?).

And speaking of donkey ears...we're having a DNA test done on Maisie to find out exactly what this little girl is made of. James and I think she's German Shepherd/Whippet/Donkey/Tiger but we shall actually find out in three short weeks. Our Vet suggested we do it...not only because Maisie is a very unusual looking dog and it will be fun to know...but also because it will help with her training and with future medical care.

I'll have some art to show you soon...I'm trying to finish everything up by the end of this week so that it all gets where it needs to go by Christmas. Time to get to work...get me my turbo tea!

Have a good Monday! xoxo

Good Morning Linda!

Maise is so adorable.... PJ wants to come play with her hehe she says they will have fun together... I am curious about the DNA tests.... I would like to have something like that done to find out what PJ might be ... however I am hesitant in some ways because insurance companies wont let you have specific breeds of dogs... how they can do that is beyond me but it is true and they wont give you insurance if they know you have a dog that is on their list..

I love that you're doing a DNA test to determine Maisie's makeup. I didn't even know that was something people could do for their pets! Cool... be sure to let us know!! :) Hugs, Shari

Ah Maisie looks mesmerised by your foot. She must have been thrilled with the snow.

It'll be fun to find out what breeds she parts of... I love the markings on her coat.

Oh what fun with the DNA thing! I knew it was coming but didn't know it was available yet. Whatever she is, she is 100% beautiful.
glad you are enjoying your snow - keep it there, ok???

How cute is she??? All of our snow is being washed away by rain today... but they say that will change to freezing sleet and ice tonight (fun!)... so tomorrow the dogs will learn how to ice skate! Looks like Maise is settling in really nicely! LOVE the picture in the Santa hat!

Take Care,

Lynne (and Liberty, Ellie and Logan)

maisie DOES have a donkey's ears! funny stuff, linda. thanks for thinking of katherine and me. i've been talking about donkeys for two days straight now, so this post is a welcome addition to my continued obsession.

and i am lovin' miss maisie and how her personality just shines in the photos you take of her. she looks like a wonderful little additino to your family.

and a dna test? wow. never heard/though of that. are you on pins and needles, waiting to hear? can't wait to hear the results, myself.

throw a snowball for me, will ya?
