My last post was about a floor cushion I had made from recycled jumpers but I must come clean - it is not a floor cushion but a doggie day-bed for my new flatmate Fly.
She is a whippet crossed with something but not sure what!
I collected her from the rehoming centre on Thursday afternoon. She has a touch of kennel cough which is making her a wee bit under the weather but that aside, she is settling in well and is very quick to learn!
It was a bit touch and go on the first night as she didn't want to sleep in her bed in the kitchen and howled so I spent a couple of hours persuading her that her wee den was a lovely place to be and eventually she went to sleep! Since then she is alot more settled and I have enjoyed 2 nights uninterrupted sleep although my day now starts significantly earlier!!


  1. I turn my back for 5 minutes......!

    Fly looks just lovely Suzanne - hope she is making you very happy. Love her name - was it always going to be thus or is there some specific reason for it?

    Looks like she has taken to her handmade bed quite nicely!

  2. Fly is beautiful! And, she looks really cosy and happy. What a lucky pooch!

  3. Welcome Fly!
    Hope your cough clears up soon.
    I think you are going to have a happy life:-)
