living stylishly with greyhounds

For ages I have been looking for some fabric or wallpaper to tart up Patrick's 19 year old fridge. Then last weekend I scored a single bed doona cover set for $9.00 from Woolworths of all places! This is just the retro look and colourway I had in mind!
fabric is still wet, hoping it will not show the dark bands of the silver mac tac when it dries, but whatever. Very funky fridge. happy.

 And then I had fabulous fabric which also matches my decor (like Mother like Son) which I thriftily sewed up into doggy doona covers. Patrick donated a faded double bed flat sheet in charcoal to the cause, which made a perfect slip cover for dog beds made from a cheap foam single bed mattress cut in half. The doona cover had a pillow slip included, the bit left from the fridge made a bolster, and the rest of the cover made a perfect slip cover for two double bed doonas folded into a quarter.
I laid here and read a book while Sheila hogged the couch. Very comfy!

Izzy did spend a lot of time here today. Looks as good as it feels!
And then there was time for some walks~
Izzy on her first walk with no muzzle. Very happy! She loves her new green kit, and look how shiny!
Sheila is looking just amazing as we head off on the monthly GAP walk. She is shiny and sleek and no bones! Some may suggest we have *ahem* gone too far...
We adopted Izzy last week, and she has had a professional teeth clean as part of the process. OMG! Her teeth were so brown and terrible and now she is gorgeous!!!! Note to self, make dental appointment...
Greyhounds love other greyhounds. The monthly group walk is very exciting
Sheila is a big rangy girl, but she was small compared to this amazing Great Dane! He weighs 94 kilos!!
So that is a quick dog centric update. Stay tuned, there will be cycling things very soon!! Lots has (and is) happening in the BUG and you will be told!
