Happy 3rd Unbirthday to Jewel!! Three years ago today we got our big baby girl (but she was about 6 months old). Here is the post where we got her.

She was a stray who had been abused and stuff, she came from the SPCA in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador. I thought the other night that it's too bad that I didn't know where she came from. I'd like to thank her first owners for being total dinks who let her wander off, get befriended by a nice man in Sheshatshui who eventually got her tame enough to take her home and get her to the SPCA. When the lady who runs the SPCA over there told me to go on-line and look at her pictures it was instantly, "She's mine!!"

Happy knitting!

PS I know some people are probably cringing at the chain, but if we don't put Jewel and Maggie out on a chain they run away. Our yarn isn't totally fenced in, and we live right in town, it's better than being hit by a car! I'd love to have a spot totally fenced in so they could run and not be chained.

Our old dogs were always on a chain - for the same reason! Duke got off a couple times and he'd always come back smelling like poop - he loved to roll in cow manure and there was no shortage of farms around.

So glad you could give her a good home after her rough start!

Wow , it doesn't seem like three years since she became a member of the family ! She's a darn lucky dog . As for the chain well better safe than hit by a car . A fence is no guarantee with some dogs though . Max's dog Alaska would always find away out . He could spot a loose board a mile away . I call him the Houdini dog .

Is she cold? I would be, chained or not, sitting out there in the snow. I know she's happy though. How could she not be seeing all the love and affection she gets now. Tell her happy birthday for me.
