A LITTLE RED, WHITE & BLUEA few weeks ago, during my stitching blahs, I spent alot of time reading blogs, looking through ONS webpages and reading designer websites. I found some really cute patriotic designs that I decided I wanted to stitch.
I'm feeling a sense of urgency right now since the 4th is next week so I decided to devote the next couple of weeks to stitching patriotic designs. I saw that one of my favorite designers had a new design coming out and I waited patiently for the online stores to make it available for purchase. Finally, 1-2-3 Stitch showed it on their website and I ordered it, along with one other patriotic design, right away. 1-2-3 Stitch ships so fast! I ordered the designs on Monday (I think) and I received my order on Thursday!

I stitched this design in memory of my dad, who's birthday would have been June 25. He loved celebrating the Fourth of July with his family and sitting with his kids and grandkids watching the local fireworks.
POOR LITTLE SNICKERS
|This is purposely a bad pic.|
Hubby's birthday was Thursday, but instead of celebrating his birthday...
Thursday evening, as Hubby and I were getting loaded up to go camping for the weekend, something (we'll never know what) made one of Snickers' eyeballs come out of it's socket. Hubby and I rushed her to our vet, where she had to have emergency surgery to remove the eye. Snickers was completely calm and relaxed, while I was in panic mode and Hubby passed out at the vet's office. The vet was able to use sedation instead of general anesthesia so Snickers was able to come with us that evening.
The vet said Snickers would sleep all night because he gave her some pain medication that would last 24 hours. Well, the pain meds might have lasted 24 hours, but it surely did not make Snickers sleep. I was up with her all night making sure she was ok because she was so restless.
Snickers is doing pretty good now and navigating around the house and yard almost like always. She does look rather pitiful, though, with half her face shaved, stitches and wearing the e-collar. I really think she's playing it up a bit with her sad puppy dog face so she can get some extra treats. She's definitely enjoying the extra attention and making sure we haven't forgotten her "Queen" status!
