Just wanted to share these tips from Dr. Weil about what foods to NOT feed your dog.  Each of these can have harmful effects on a dog's health, ranging from allergic reactions to vomiting, diarrhea or even death. Be on the safe side and restrict your dog's access to these foods - he or she will thank you.
1.Alcohol, including beer, wine and liquor
3.Caffeine, such as tea, coffee, cocoa, chocolate and colas
4.Dairy products
5.Grapes and raisins
6.Macadamia nuts or foods containing macadamia nuts
7.Meat fat or bones
8.Onions and garlic - raw, cooked, dehydrated and powdered
9.Pantry staples such as baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg
10.Fruits with pits, such as peaches and plums
11.Raw eggs, meat and fish
12.Salty or sugary food and drinks

Also be aware of anything containing the sweetener xylitol, such as candy, gum, toothpaste and baked goods, as well as human medications, especially acetaminophen and ibuprofen - all can have serious adverse affects on your dog's health.

In case your dog does eat any of the above, it's a good idea to always have on hand the number of your vet, an emergency clinic and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888-426-4435). If you think your dog has consumed something toxic, call for emergency help at once

Sorry I haven't been on my blog in quite some time. I've been busy reorganizing, doing the year end inventory, working on taxes and working  on some new designs...hope to have them done in the next several weeks.  I did manage to get a couple sheep done .

This one I made for a friend, I personalized it with her last name and the year she got married. I plan to sell these on Etsy , you will be able to buy ones that are personalized and ones that will just have Wool...a picture of a sheep... and the year 1887 on it. They are about 24" tall and 26" long. Will aslo be making them in a med. 18"  size and a smaller 12" size.

This one is around 13" Tall and 16" Long. I bought this shaggy cool material about 2 years ago not knowing
what I was going to use it for... I just knew I really liked it and one day I'd figure out what to do with it. lol  
I think it makes a prety good looking sheeps wool. I will aso be making him in the 18" size and 24" size and listing on Etsy.
