Loves Me. Love Her.
(NSW Australia )
Waiting for her next instructions
Nora is now three years old and just loves to be kept busy.
She has inside and outside toys; we walk and do agility training every day, which is more like game-time than lesson-time. But we love it, and we have so much fun.
Nora and I have a strong bond. She is my companion and gives me the strength and confidence to get up daily. My husband calls her my daughter. Well, that's true; she is family after all.
I have to work hard at keeping Nora's ears healthy, as she is prone to ear infections.
To help keep her ears dry, I have crocheted her a snood. The snood slips over her head and holds her ears back, allowing airflow. Nora is hilarious when she has it on. She sits still with a sad face and her head down for about 20 minutes. The look is like saying, "Oh mum, must I?" and I won't share the photo because that would be cocker embarrassing. But it's on each or every other day, mainly through the wet season, and it has helped reduce the frequency and severity of ear infections.
The snood pattern, I just made it up. It's a rectangle piece which I sewed two edges together, making a tube. For those that can crochet, the stitches I used were a treble with a chain in between, which creates a tall open weave that allows good airflow.
I love Nora, and she loves me straight back.
