Sad Story

So... I spent a good chunk of yesterday afternoon perfecting a (super amazingly cute fabulously adorable) notecard craft for some future T3. Let me tell you, SO CUTE! It's lovely, and I wish I knew more people so that I could send them out to everybody. Anyway... in preparation for any how-to or tutorial, I like to complete a nice, finished product, and then take all of my pictures and everything as I recreate it. This way, I have two variations to show, and it helps me to perfect the method before tossing it out there for you.
Moving on... so I finished it, and it was lovely. So sweet, exactly how I wanted it. I left it on the table beside our couch so that I could photograph it today after completing a second one (do you see where this is headed yet?).
So this morning, I'm doing my thing, getting ready, and I notice that my house is completely quiet. Now, as all of you mommies out there know, quiet is often not a welcome sound, if you catch my drift. When I realized how still the house was, it struck me as odd because the beasties puppies generally use the mornings while I'm getting ready to release some of their energy. As in, normally I get ready to the sweet sounds of them playing, play-fighting, and knocking each other into various pieces of furniture. ***Editor's Note: At this point, I would like to say, I am in no way comparing the fiends puppies to children, I was merely stating that there are a few similarities between having a toddler in the house and having two dogs in the house.***
So this morning, when I heard none of these raucous, usual sounds being emitted from my living room, I felt the dread begin. I'm sure you understand. That feeling when you know you have to go check it out, but you just know that you really, really don't want to see... Yeah... Well naturally, I walk into the living room to find my wonderfully fanciful, sweet, whimisical, lovely note card torn to shreds and half-devoured and two happy, sweet, calm puppies enjoying their morning treat.
It's a sad story.
The End.

I know exactly the feeling that you had. It happens WAY too often at our house! Darn dogs!

Nik said...

Oh man... are you having roasted puppies for dinner? Our kittens recently knocked over and broke one of my favorite vases. Sometimes pets can be even more destructive than kids!

Oh, Lauren...here I am whining over Blogger eating my post...and you had a sad story, too.

Wish we lived closer...we could eat dark chocolate and discuss the millions of reasons why Edward is better than Jacob. (That's for your sister.)

I'm sorry about your card. But hey--I have a fabulous owl towel (!) that I'm currently looking at and it makes me happy. I will reveal all to the blog world very soon!

OH man! What a bummer!!! Those little rascals! That is a sad story.
Can I join in the choclate Edward/Jacob party too? :)

Oh, that's awful! Even though you were planning to do it again, it's so hard to see all that hard work gone to the puppies.

Julie said...

so sorry.. but I look forward to seeing it after you make it again :) And you can always send me one...I won't eat it... I will probably frame it :)

I can soooo relate. We have kittens. And you wouldn't think they would be destructive or chewers like dogs, but they are. Although some days I think we have magpies. Because they steal everything. I am currently missing: my watch, one of my crocs, all the qtips from the cup by my sink, all the hairbows - except two - from the bowl by the sink, my bathroom cup, AND my cell phone. How they could carry off my cell phone, I don't know. But they chewed through the cord where it was plugged in...and it's gone. Can't call it because it's dead. Or very well hidden. Who said it was okay to get kittens???

Frizzy and Bird said...

Oh No! My day went much like this. I'm so sorry to hear of the wrongful death of your project. I know those pups are begging for your forgiveness!

Tiffany said...

Oh no, I was so looking forward to seeing the notecard. Puppies can be destructive, that's for sure. But they can also be so much fun. What kind are they?

I LOVE your blog, by the way and plan to return often. Found you at BATW.
