In June, my family adopted a dog from a wonderful Baltimore-based rescue called Dogs XL. Their mission is to rescue large dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in forever homes (check them out at http://www.dogsxlrescue.com/). My oldest son fell in love with Sawyer the first time we met him. After 3 more meetings to make sure he was the right guy for us, we brought him home. Sawyer has now been with us for about 2 1/2 months. He is super cute (he's a Golden Retriever/Chow Chow/Couch Potato mix) and very sweet and has an adorable purple Chow tongue which is really hard to catch on camera because he is quite camera-shy. This photo is from the other day with Sawyer chilling in my stamp room/office.
Sawyer's card is made with 2 patterns from the Friends Furever line by We R Memory Keepers, a Cloud 9 stamp, some pearls, and some raffia.
