Finally! I knew that if I just waited long enough that HLJ.com would get in the Alice & Heidi Rune Dolls. They started showing up on YJP so I’ve been antsy to bring them home.
So my 1/6th doll collecting has split along two very distinct lines: Gothic & Lolita, and Fairy Tale. I love it. Someday I will have a way of displaying them all attractively in a dust free environment :p for now they rotate in and out of a tiny glass cabinet and la Casa Formica.
On the puppy front: omg I love my dog! Butter seems to be coming along really nicely. We had a really big weekend. Lots of long neighborhood walks. Laura came over with the lovely Gus (a gigantic brindle/akita/whatever mix) last weekend and this to take us to Pt. Isobel, a huge and gorgeous off leash dog park that is just down the road from us. Laura knows dogs and can navigate the crazy dog people, so she is Butter’s godmother. Last weekend Butter was all growly at everyone. This weekend she was awesome. She played good curious doggy and didn’t growl at anyone. I’m not letting her off leash yet as “come” doesn’t come naturally. But I was so proud. And Gus is a really good role model as he’s the perfect dog. We also met another Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix. We saw him from across the park, he looked just like butter except w/ a bright ginger coat, a bit larger, and the tips of his ears flopped. We chatted with the owners and marvelled at our dog’s similarities.
I still think dog people are crazy, so much noise and fuss! I get overwhelmed a bit by it all, the anxiety doesn’t help. But this is fun and I’m getting out and about more, which is awesome.
