This is about Macy my giant schnauzer, she is 10 now and i have had from 8 week old. She is a gentle giant and has been a joy to know, definitely my dog, or that is until Jake arrives for a visit. Almost 6 years ago Macy had a phantom pregnancy and at the same time my daughter Michelle was expecting her first baby.
 When my grandson Jake arrived Macy thought he was wonderful and was always near by, she even sleep outside his bedroom. After a time Michelle moved to her own home and i noticed that Macy was not herself at all. A few days later Michell called by with Jake and we had the return of the old Macy for the day. 
After they left she took to her bed for long periods and was off her food so i asked Michelle to call with Jake and hey presto she was back to normal. This went on for several weeks but over time Macy got used to Jake just coming and going and returned to the the dog i know and love. But even now over three years on if Jake is in the house he has a big black shadow with him at all times and it's as well that he loves her too.
I like cats , big ones especially, sadly so many are now endangered.
In some parts of America this one has been taken off the endangered list and has been declared as extinct. It is not extinct world wide but it's numbers are low. I hope it never get to the stage that we only have pictures of them.
I am entering this into the digitally sweet challenge  just because i love this photo.

CD Sunday Poetry corner

Good morning crafter's, and it is a good morning here in North Wales, we have the sun and it's picking out all the beautiful autumn colours and everywhere looks absolutely beautiful.
last week your  entries where  fabulous, so thank you all for joining us.
This week at CD Sunday it is Poetry Corner, now I'm not well up on my poetry so i did have a slight panic at first, but i found a very beautiful one from Patience Strong called Woodland Cathedral. I was only going to use a small part of it but like it so much decided to do the whole card font with the full version and i hope you like it too. The CD I have used is a My craft studio called Art Nouveau.
I do hope you will join in again this week, it can be sort and sweet, a bit of humor whatever you like, how about something of your own.
Our Guest Sue will sadly not be with us for last of the month as she has family commitments to deal with after a bereavement. However we shall be having her back at a later date. 
This weekend is also a team mates Birthday, so have a very Happy Birthday Jenny. I wont say how old she is but it gets very warm when you light the candles.

It has printed out really well and looks layered, but as it is going to Canada it's much better  to be flat, i hope they like it, xx
