I am back in Japan after a great holiday in Oz. I really missed Jazz and Dixie but did have some animal companions to help. The beautiful Golden Retriever is Jasper who belongs to one of my best friends. He was super friendly, Jazz and Dixie would have loved to play with him! The cat is Griggio, my grandmother's cat. He is huge and really enjoyed warming his belly by the heater.
The cross stitch was started by me when I was in highschool (15 years ago!!!) and recently finished and framed by my grandmother. By the look of it, it was my destiny to own two beagles!!
