NOW, I don't know the best way to arrange them. They are basically only TWO colors, but you can do so many arrangements with them.
Tell me what you think, and what arrangement you like. Love to see any other patterns you know about.
Here is Arrangement #1: (I didn't have many pieces yet.)
Following is Arrangement #2: (I think this is my favorite because of the stars it makes.)
Following is Arrangement #3: (I like this one but it doesn't have any stars.)
I put food out for them, and when we LEAVE, they rush to the food and gobble down every bit of it. We put food into this bowl twice tonight.
He was hilarious watching us try to get the puppies to come to us. He could see everything from his high perch there. He and Barney (our second oldest cat) have not been happy ever since we brought Button home when he was a kitten. He was a tossed out baby also, but he ran into our building in town to hide. He was so tiny and so skinny.
Boots and Barney ignore Button and treat him like some kind of space alien; and now they see these puppies, and I think they are at their wit's end. LOL!
A few nights ago when I first saw the puppies, I told him how cute they were and told him we had to take care of them. He said, "NO WAY!!!!" "LISTEN TO ME, JOY!" "WE HAVE YOUR MOM -- OUR 3 CATS -- AND 3 STRAY CATS!" "WE JUST CANNOT TAKE THESE DOGS IN!!!!"
Now that I'm old and I have lived with Jerry for 43 years, I know that he ALWAYS says "NO!" first. Later, he always says "Yes". So, I just waited.
This morning when I went into the kitchen to make my breakfast, Jerry was trying to come up with a name for the dogs who still had not come near us. Of course, I knew his heart was softening, but I didn't let on. He said, "I think I'll name the black dog "Bart". (A "B" name like the 3 cats.)
I told him the dogs were girls and he could not name one "Bart". He agreed.
I suggested "Betty". He said he didn't like that at all.
I told him I wanted to name the light colored one "Sandy", but he said that didn't start with a "B".
So then I left and went to work. I wasn't at work very long when Terry called and we decided to take advantage of the one sunshiny day this week and go do our grocery shopping. While I was at Sam's buying groceries, I got a phone call from Jerry.
GUESS what he wanted????????????????????
He asked me to buy dog food and treats for the puppies. He really is a big softy when it comes to puppies and kittens.
I don't know what will actually happen, but I will keep you posted.
We have named them Sandy and Sasha. IF they ever come to us, we will take them to a Vet and later get them spayed. We don't need any more unwanted puppies. I told Jerry that our names didn't start with "B", so surely we could name these dogs something else. He agreed.
You gotta see what Jerry caught yesterday when he went fishing with a new friend who happens to be a Guide. I was so happy for Jerry to get to go in someone else's boat and just enjoy fishing. He put the fish back in the lake.
My latest new pattern. I hope to make it up real soon. I will let you know all about it -- of course.
