Real Life Monsters

Had a very quite Easter so rather than stuffin' myself with easter eggs I decided I would try my hand at makin' one of my little monsters into a real monster. I haven't really used a sewing machine properly before so it was vwery,vwery interesting. At one stage I had sown his arm on the insideout part....DOH! He is kinda bockety here and there and alot of everywhere but I think that adds character (well, that's what I'm sticking too).

Oh and his arms are suposed to be that long and his legs that short....a few people have said did ye mix the arms up on the legs? Nope, that was intentional!!!

Ben, my rescue dog.

Hey now everybody. Here is some great news. I have adopted a little Shih Tzu, now called Ben. After the tragic loss of Molly the house felt so empty so I decided to adopt a rescue dog. I found Ben on the website by a total fluke. So I rang straight away to see if he still needed a home. A week later, he was rehomed with me and is doing really well. Ben was found totally neglected, matted and underweight. He is such a clever, happy, effectionate little dude. I am so chuffed he is living with us now.
The people at The Friends of Ben Dog Rescue Centre do some seriously amazing work for animals that have been thrown by the wayside and forgotten about or abused. It is heartbreaking to see so many dogs on SO MANY websites looking for homes. So if any of you out there are looking for a new family pet. Maybe try a rescue centre instead, rather than a brand new puppy and give some little runt a fresh go at a deadly new life.
I know it sounds like one of those save the animals ads but it's true. Ireland should be ashamed of the neglect of so many of their animals. Some of these Irish rescue centres/ pounds send off dogs to other countries to be rehomed because those countries don't have these enormous problems with stray dogs.
That's my rant done with for now.

Don't you think he looks a bit like an Ewok ?!?
