Hello all! I know it’s been pretty sporadic around here lately and for good reason. Besides just being crazy busy, The Charity Wedding is in the process of getting a makeover. An extreme makeover if you will. I don’t want to go into a ton of details because that will ruin all of the fun! But I am going to give you a peek at some of the inspiration.
First- just so you all know, the foster dog found his forever home on Saturday! He is happily living in what I hear is a huge home, on 10 acres of land, with ample opportunities for walks and hikes, and has a new cat friend. The last update I received was that the couple adores him, he sleeps under their covers, and gets along great with the cat (something they were concerned about.) From death row at the pound to a new amazing life in only 4 days.
Did I tell you we lost him? Yep, the skinny little guy jumped straight through the bars of our rod iron fence. When we went to bring him in the house, he was gone. We looked over our back fence and below the empty field behind us, there he was running along the road!! It was too far to chase him or even scream at him- remember he had no name. Luckily I saw a car stop and pick him up. So I had to make the dreaded call to the rescue to let them know we lost him but that someone had picked him up and would hopefully bring him back to the shelter. Not 10 minutes later I got a call from the vet’s office saying they had my little run away. Turns out the vet was on her way home for lunch and picked him up. While this was a really lucky twist of fate it was also SUPER embarrassing. The dog was supposed to be wearing a cone for 14 days. In our house the cone lasted all of about 15 minutes so not only did she know we lost him but also that we failed to listen to doctor’s orders.
In the end, we mostly called him Wiley but then after he looked at me a few times I realized he looked like someone familiar… Harry Potter fans will appreciate this–Dobby. The scrawny little pup reminded me of Dobby.
I could never get a great photo of him head on, but he had those same ears. He also never made that awful noise again, thankfully. I would have loved to get it on video but it just didn’t happen. Use your imagination!
Now for the inspiration… I have no idea when it will be ready, but I can tell you it is going to be amazing!
