A Droopy Day

As you're sitting her reading this post, I'll be sitting in the hospital with hubby.  He's having bypass surgery on his leg today - and IS NOT a happy person with all this right now!  Thought I'd make him this card so when he woke up after the surgery maybe he'd at least get a small chuckle.  I really doubt there will be much laughter though.  But, the way I look at it - at least they can do something for him and there are so many they can't.


This image is from Just Inklined and I thought it was just too cute.  If this little pup had been a doxie it would have just been perfect since that's what kind of dog we have.  We've really been trying to train Rambo (our doxie) to be a little bit nicer when he's on the leash.  He's a very strong little guy and has already busted  three leashes.  This last one we got is for dogs 50 pounds or more (Rambo only weighs 13).  He hasn't busted it yet but it's real hard to tell who is walking who.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Cards for Men (Make Us Laugh) and Sweet Stampin Callenge (Masculine).

Thanks for stopping by........I'll pop in to see everyone as soon as I can but they may be hit and miss for a couple of days.

This is great Lynn and so, so funny! Hope hubby is feeling 'not so droopy' soon!

Prayers with you and hubby :) I think he will get a little giggle or at least a smile from your card, it is really funny. I know what you mean about being nice on a leash, everyone parts when Lucky and I are walking since he snarls and growls when on the leash, but a sweetie when off. Kind of embarrassing since he is only 12 lbs. I will be thinking of ya this weekend. Make sure you get some rest as well.

Lynn, Adorable card. He looks like I feel some days. LOL. Great sentiment and I love the stitching you added. The shade of blue is perfect. I have two Yorkies that I thought were tough when on their leashes and meeting other doggies, but I think Roxie has them beat. Good Luck. I find training very hard. enjoy your weekend.

Oh Lynn, I'm sorry about your hubby - I will be praying for you both and keeping you in close thought. Anything out of our norm always gives us cause to worry and you have much prayer behind you! Your card is so wonderful - coloring is fantastic and the blue gingham is perfect. Hugs!

Karen said...

Hi Lynn, I hope that your hubby is doing ok and that the surgery went well. And I can empathize with him about not being a happy camper. I am sure that your card will bring a smile to his face and help him forget his surgery at least for a moment. I love the gingham that you used on your card. Your little Rambo must be living up to his name...3 leashes...WOW
