Last Straw

If you have read my blog before you will know that I am creative, resourceful and determined. I enjoy redesigning Mum's shoes and finding ways to reach interesting items that have been carefully placed out of my reach.

Mum, however, doesn't always appreciate my talents and will often try to stifle my creativity. One day, after she caught me running past the bathroom with one of her shoes in my mouth, she told me it was the last straw. I don't know what the big deal was, I had shortened one of the bows on the shoe for her, while she was in the shower and was merely putting it back. Apparently the first straw appeared last week when I helped myself to a whole block of cheese left on the table. No one wanted it anyway! And if all these straws were appearing, I'm sure my piggy brother Mima would appreciate them.

Getting back to the shoe, after mum discovered what I did, she shouted at me and my redesigning efforts were rewarded with a smacked bottom.Well I showed her! When Dad got home from work, I was all over him.

Before Mum could tell him what happened that day, I snuggled up to Dad, being as cute as possible and ignored Mum all night. Dad was distracted by the attention, Mum was bothered by the lack of attention, and nobody mentioned any straws!

Working Dog

No I haven't turned into a cattle dog but I am working! Mum & Dad are always leaving me to go to "work" and telling me it's so they can earn money to buy me treats.

Well, I decided to earn my own liver treats! With Mum's help I have now got my own store!

Check it out here   My Store - Gemma's Little Gems

It is still growing and I will be adding lots of pretty things all the time.

You will see that there is a page called Gemma's Giveaways. The first Giveaway will be chosen on Friday 5 October. You just need to tweet a pic of you looking glam for a chance to win something fabulous! I have already received a fantastic entry from @WhippetPickle looking very glam in his pink dressing gown. Will post pics later with his permission.

Looking forward to seeing more pics.
