Gus Yappy Birthday

I had meant to get this card done quite sometime ago for the SSW2 Sketch Challenge, but obviously I didn't finish it in time. It was Gus's 2nd birthday in May and I haven't seen my Grandpup until this past weekend. I found this wonderful Whimsy stamp, West Highland Terrier.  Gus is a Teddybear, but they look similar. I cannot display the pictures that I would love to where my daughter, who is a teacher, takes him to school with her. He is excellent with the children. She has him certified as a therapy dog and he does help calm some of her kids with special needs. This is a write up that I found on-line about the breed.
 These energetic and lively dogs are excellent companions, and generally of a much more pleasant disposition than other dogs of similar size. Teddies are obtained by intentional crossing, specifically of a Shih Tzu with a Bichon or Bichon-Poodle mix, not just any two small breeds. They are fast gaining popularity as "designer dogs".

This card is really cute! That is so cool that your daughter can bring her dog with her to school . I think I would have learned better if I had had a dog that I could pet cuddle all I was at school.

Hugs,
Chriss

Awww, so sweet and perfect papers to go with the image. I can't say I have ever heard of a Teddybear dog - but it sounds like a real sweetie.
