I have learned Paint Shop Pro.  It’s a great program and I have been having a load of fun!  Here’s a tutorial that I just finished.  The tutorial can be found here:

How quickly they grow!

February 7th, 2010 by admin

I did this animation using GIF animator.  Thought I’d try doing a slideshow.  I liked the effect.  This is Philly.  He’ll be a year old Feb. 23.

How quickly they grow!

Huggie is 16!

November 10th, 2009 by admin

Huggie is 16 years old. He’s the oldest dog in my house.  I think he looks good for his age.  He has degenerative disc disease so is now getting physical therapy.  He gave me a scare a week ago.  He went down one night and couldn’t get up.  Fortunately, I saw it and was able to help him.  I thought he had lost all use of his hind legs but he was back on his feet in the morning.  Now I have exercises to do with him.  Wouldn’t you know it but he is very co-operative at the vet office.  At home, he gets all stiff and resists my attempts to move his legs.  Tomorrow, he goes back to the vet and he gets to walk on a treadmill in water.  You all know how much a Papillon loves water, especially an old and yes, cantankerous one.  I’ll make it up to him with a  special treat after the therapy session.  Hopefully, The Bug, will be up and walking when he’s 17, 18, who knows?!

I’ve added a little pictorial of Hug throughout his life.  It brings back so many memories of my little best friend.

Jordan Doesn’t Want A Puppy Kiss

May 22nd, 2009 by Anna

Have you ever been attacked by a puppy who is determined to cover your face with kisses? How do you fend off such an attack? I don’t know why anyone would but my daughter didn’t want Phinley kisses and this is her method to deter him.

Watch Jordan and Phinley.

Puppy Slippers

April 27th, 2009 by Anna

Pheobe and her brother, Philly, feel asleep side by side. My daughter’s boyfriend noticed them and said they look like slippers. They do! Phoebe looks much bigger than Philly but they are really almost the same size. Here’s a picture:

A Puppy’s Tale Of Woe

April 16th, 2009 by Anna

I am a poor sad puppy!  All alone in this world except for my mother.  And she doesn’t love me either!

Please help me!  Please save me from this lonely existence!

I am all alone!

What is Phinley whining about?

Hi, my name is Phillie.  See how handsome I am?

Don’t cry, Phinley!

I will break you out!

I will chew through the bars!  Chomp!

Free at last!  Thanks to Phoebe!

The end!

And now you know why I haven’t posted for two months!

Stay tuned for more puppy episodes!

Snow again!

February 18th, 2009 by Anna

We had unexpected snow.  Well, it was expected but it was supposed to turn into rain.  So far, I don’t see rain.  It’s not much, a little more than a dusting but it’s annoying to me.  It did put me in the mood to share this with you.  It’s a picture of Whisper as a puppy out in the snow.  I snapped this picture and this is exactly as my camera captured her.  I didn’t manipulate the photo in any way.  I thought it was a neat effect so here it is:

Completed Tiffany Lamp

February 5th, 2009 by Anna

I ordered PI X3 but in the meantime, I loaded PI 8.  I redid the lamp by adding more butterflies.  My lamp has a base and to go with the Valentine theme I added a picture of my very special Studmuffin.  He’s been gone for two years now but I think of him every day.  My life is a little bit emptier without him now but it’s far richer for having him in my life for those very short 13 years.  Happy Valentine’s Day, Strudely Boy!  I miss you!
