My Love - Izzy

The challenge over at Scrap A Tale was all about love. So I decided to do this page (based on a sketch) about my sausage dog Izzy.

The journalling is as follows:

On 7 November 2006 whilst driving down our road in 5 o’clock traffic Leanne noticed a little sausage dog darting up the road. I pulled into our drive way and by the time Leanne had got out, the little dog had already gone past our house and had crossed the road (Underwood Rd, which is very busy!). She ran after this little dog and managed to catch up with it. I walked down the road to see what was taking Leanne so long and met her with the cutest little sausage dog that melted my heart. I took her from Leanne and just cuddled her. She was as skinny as anything, her ears had no hair on them and were like leather and she was full of scratches on her tummy. We took her home and fed her and the next day phoned the local Vet and the SPCA. After 2 weeks no-one had claimed her and we decided that as she had already crept into our hearts, we would keep her.

She is my “little black shadow”. She follows me everywhere. She cuddles under the duvet with me at night. She jumps onto my lap when I am in the loo. She sits on my lap while watching TV. She has a pillow on my craft box where she sleeps while I scrap and when she is tired, she climbs under my t/shirt so that she can sleep. She has such a gentle nature and has never ever snatched food from anyone’s hand when they feed her. She loves me unconditionally and holds a special place in my heart.

Thanks for looking.

I totally agree that Izzy is the most lovable little creature on 4 legs out there and I know what I am talking about as I have had personal and first hand experience of her love. Gorgeous layout Michelle and such beautiful tribute.
