Christmas Bear Paper Piecing

Thanksgiving & Black Friday!!!

I hope everyone had a very good Thanksgiving!! we went to Wisconsin which was about a 4 hour drive from here...it was nice to see everyone.and we drove back home thursday night...got home at midnight and I had to be up by 5:30am to be at work by 6:30am on BLACK FRIDAY!!!

did anyone do the crazy midnight shopping??? some people can get CRAZY!! I work in retail and we had people lined up at the doors half hour before opening and they were litterally banging on the doors to get in and for us to open it! it actually scared me at one point,thinking when we finally did open the doors a minute before 7am that people would actually start fighting for things.....is that what Christmas has turned into??? I mean serisouly is it worth the shopping rage and turning into vicious human beings??? I don't think so! but I hope everyone shopped safe and got what was on santa's list!!!

So this is why I haven't been on ebay much or even scrapping at all lately,for the past 2 months I have been busy with puppies.and I'm talking PUPPIES!!!both my female dogs went into heat at the same time,we were planning to breed our 2 labs but as nature would have it there was a little accident with the Beagle and Lab.YES! it's possible...so don't even ask!at first we had planned to abort her pregnancy which I wasn't too thrilled about but I didn't want her to suffer with huge puppies.well when it came down to it my vet said it would probably be better for her if she had her litter because aborting the pregnancy would be painful for her,she would of had to take a series of shots(which hurt) and meds which would make her very sick,not to mention she would than abort dead puppies.which I wasn't about to deal with.so we decided 4 puppies wouldn't be so bad.needless to say they all looked like labs she had 3 boys and 1 girl whelped on June 2nd at 4pm,it was a tough labor for her but she was such a trooper!! she's been a good mommy ever since,even though now one of her pups almost out weighs her,in size and weight.LOL

2 weeks later labs puppies were whelped on June 16th although this labor didn't go as smooth as we had hoped! she had a total of 8 puppies but the first one didn't make it :( she delivered 3 more and went into such a stress mode she stopped laboring.needless to say we were at the clinic by the time she had the first one,the last 4 were whelped by C-section and revived by the best vet techs anyone could ask for!!! so there we have it a house full of puppies!!! 11 to be exact!! and 3 adult dogs for a total of 14 total dogs!!! can you say INSANE!!!
