Pins and Needles

What a great looong weekend. Mom was off Monday for Presents Day (whoops, she called it President's day...whatever). She needed it after running her 5k! She did it in 36 minutes! Go mom!

Cousin Rebel also came down. Yay! And Granny and Pawpaw brought something else too...a late Christmas present (see, maybe it was Presents day!) for mom...and guess who was on it?? Me and Dunc!!

Granny is a quilter, so she hand quilted me and Dunc for mom! How flippin cool is that?? AND she got my GOOD side!! I couldn't believe how much she captured my diva beauty!

And Dunc's charm! Although she left off all his greys! BOL!

Mom loved it! She couldn't believe how much the quilt looks like us! Granny did one for Aunt Temple too, it has cousins Lola the wonder corgi and Amos on it. Mom asked if Granny would sell these, she said she'd make them, she just needed pictures of the people's dog(s) and she'd do it. So if your people's want a one of a kind quilt with you on it hit me up yo! Or check out Granny's Etsy site and send her a message about what you want....all for about $130-$150!

Okay, enough for shameless plug. Mom was a "tad" sore after her run so we just hung around the house and played at home most of the weekend. Dad got the worm-bug yesterday, so he stayed home as well. And Rebel is here until next Tuesday! I'll get some play pics up soon!
