A dog and her boy: Best of Friends

My gorgeous little grandson, Lukas with Nina.  He named her even before he first saw her...and they are the best of friends.
He can do anything with her and she just laps it up.
Who is the boss?
She adores him and follows him around everywhere.
Every boy needs a dog:-)

This was sketch 114 by the talented Liz Chidester at The Scrappiest.
The photos of Lukas and Nina was just perfect to scrap for this layout.
All the products and embellishments are from the My Minds Eye Stella and Rose Hattie line.  I LOVE this range.  The little dog is by American Craft Dear Lizzy City Park.

Nina has also moved in when Wynand and Nadia did.  Oh my word, I have forgotten how naughty puppies are.  We have had Sharpei's for years and they don't chew...never....really!  But this dog...anything and everything is chewed up.  The boxes of stored goods in the garage have already been chewed on.  Every day we have to pick up chewed up boxes, toys anything left outside. She cured me of my desire to get a golden labrador.

Have a wonderful week.

  6. Such gorgeous photos, I can feel all that puppy love.
    Cats are mush easier than dogs though, less chewing, less pooping and less mess. Sterkte with the training procedure.
    They really are a man's best friend - or a little boy.

  7. So cute! love the pictures.
    Yep, it will take a while to break a puppy from chewing and it will take lots of patience too. Worth it though, especially Lukas loves her.

  8. Aww, nothing better than a boy and his dog! These photos are amazing and your LO is so striking!! Love the colour palette and that little dog embellishment is so sweet!! Yes, puppies are a handful! I have never had a big dog. My little pack of 3 is enough for me! If they are really bad I can pick them up and put them in their kennels. ;)

  9. Cute looking puppy & very lovely layout - I love MME Stella & Rose but got the other colourway - more reds - oh my you are a very tolerant granny Lynette - we have tried dogs 3 times & each time had to give the puppies away. Now we have 3 cats instead because I can't take everything getting destroyed...

  15. Beautiful pictures! Yes, labs do chew a lot, but we found that enough sinew bones and cows hoofs helps a lot.
