Here he is George the Labradoodle from Glen Eden in VA. trouble from the get go ......waiting to play dirty ball
that's right go ahead and magnify that picture and see what I mean....There on the beautiful Ralph Lauren fabric.. yes that's him with his dirty ball....he gets away with murder...George is one of the greatest prophets of all time...he taught me to just be and that material things don't have to weigh me down and they don't rule my life , you wipe it off and move on, no need for a mental breakdown....White sofas, canvas for his dirty paws, oriental rugs...back scratchers,...when the kids were young the house and keeping it perfect (a pipe dream) was all so important and now it's just not...the pleasure this dog brings far out weighs any mishaps he has around the house...when he thows up...I whisper "mammas here.".. and when his arthritis acts up we massage him...we throw footballs for him to fetch and chase him around the house.. we even play hide and go seek....the beauty of having George is watching the kids and how they love and nurture too... now that Matt drives there is a towel laid down in the back seat of his car just for George..together they visit Clarisse at Fidos Food Bin and the mention of her name will get him wimpering....At the end of the day Kate and I lay down with him to say prayers and he'll rest his chin on dirtyball looking on intently....last but not least Rich of House and Pet who takes him every Monday and Friday for doggie adventure and he swims and runs with his buddies Angie,Bella.Lucy.Molly and whoever else signed up for the day...Tell him Rich is coming and he jumps up on the window seat the tail going back and forth wildly and waits with his dirty ball until Rich shows up...That is one special relationship...Rich is his life..He's one lucky boy..

I did these for Country Living Magazine about 12 years ago and people still call me around the Holidays for them....so simple...spray paint gold or silver styrofoam balls (the hard ones)....take a pearlized pin ,pierce a big a faux glass bead and then a sequin and pierce it through ball.....go around the whole ball when complete put in a pretty bowl or a bird cage (because they are tooo heavy for the tree) and make merry!!!
