Outta the Dog House

Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, we're still in the den today so I wanted to show you my mantel.
When I'm stuck with what to poke up on the mantel I always use my 'go to' mantel decorating like the snap below. I poke down my two topiaries on each end, poke my little clock down with two Staffies on each side.  It's just easy when I don't feel inspired.
Well, I don't feel creative and I don't feel inspired so I decided I'd just use my old 'go to' mantel.
Life has been bopping right along and I was enjoying my 'go to' mantel. Then I went visiting some thrity shops and found something!
 See my mantel? Just my old 'go to' except...
No, no Nannette! Not my laptop tossed on the floor by my chair! 
How'd it get down there? :) Well, you can see my Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper and a snack there on the table.
 There's a little change, can you see it? Peep in a little closer.
 See!!! Oh, my heart is skipping beats right now! 
I found some Staffy babies, I mean Staffy puppies!
 Precious little puppies sitting on cushions!
 Oh, I'm loving these little Staffy puppies and so are their adopted Staffy mommies.
Now the mommies are real Staffordshire and the puppies are...shh...fake!
Don't tell them that because they're so happy to be in a home filled with other doggies!
 Shoot! Real or fake, I don't care one little bit. No, no Nannentte, I don't!
Look how proud the mommy Staffies are.
Just one thing, if these little Staffy puppies do not behave they will go inside the dog house.
You can see it is filled with Staffies who have gone awry! :)
I have no shame! :)
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Dirty Old Egg Suckin' Dog

Well he's not very handsome to look at
Oh he's shaggy and he eats like a hog
And he's always killin' my chickens
That dirty old egg-suckin' dog

Egg-suckin' dog
I'm gonna stomp your head in the ground
If you don't stay out of my hen house
You dirty old egg-suckin' hound

Now if he don't stop eatin' my eggs up
Though I'm not a real bad guy
I'm gonna get my riffle and send him
To that great chicken house in the sky

Egg-suckin' dog
You're always hangin' around
But you'd better stay out of my hen house
You dirty old egg-suckin' hound
