“A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
I have the tree up, lights on, some décor put out, but I had to get to a holiday party. I had this festive dress from Ever Wonder, a lovely mesh piece she was selling at Designer Showcase that included a texture change HUD so I could try a few colorways on. I slipped on my new shoes from Glamistry and great jewelry from Maxi Gossamer for this month’s Fameshed and rushed out the door to the party.
Now, you all know I have a new dog named Ziggy. She is a darling mutt, full of joy and life and coziness too. But she’s also still a bit of a puppy and she finds her way into things she shouldn’t frequently. For example, she has found (and chewed) slippers I forgot I had. She has chewed the hem on a sweater of mine (after she laid all over it). And she’s chewed up three iPad charging cords. (What the appeal is, I have no idea.) So I should have felt a little trepidation about leaving her loose with the holiday decorations out but I was already late.
Sure enough, she got into the tree. Thanks to today’s gift from Garvie Garzo in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, I have a perfect representation of Ziggy (though she’s not the same breed). When I rezzed the gift, I laughed because, yep, that’s my dog and somehow Garvie has met her. Garvie went to considerable pains to create a pet that would make you smile for the holidays, so I hope you rush to the calendar to grab this silly puppy to add warmth to your own home.
Monicuzza Babenco has made a lovely applier for the Catwa mesh head at the Dressing Room Fusion. At a ridiculously low price, it’s absolute beauty on a budget with the beautiful features and freckles (!). Mirja Mills has created this elegant updo with a pearl-studded scarf for all your holiday dress up, also discount priced for My Attic. So I can still smile, though I will be replacing all the lights.
