I AM SO THRILLED and Tagged by Kate!

When I woke up this morning and checked my emails, I got a sweet surprise from my friends, Jenn and Jacqui, over at The Bowerbird's Nest. I am sure that you have seen other bloggers' illustrations that have been designed by the fabulous Miss Jacqui, and now Duhgall and I have our own sweet design! Jacqui even pegged my hair cut and Doogs' plaid collar. He used to have a plaid leash, however he used it as a chew toy one day and severed it in half with his sharp Scotty teeth.

Jenn and Jacqui, thank you from the bottom of my Y for taking the time to make something so wonderful for Duhgall and I. I just love it and the red and white polka dots are just perfect!

Hi, I was just reading Sandy's (Sam I Am) list, and am visiting your blog for the first time. I am in PFATT with Sandy. May I add your link to my blog? I have a lot of other artist's links. You'd never know from looking at my blog that I am an artist, too; I am on a bit of a hiatus, writing a novel, though.
