100th Post...I feel good!!

I turn 100 TODAY!!
YAY 100 Blogs.
Thank you to all that have commented and pointed me in the direction of all things sausage dog like and for the people that have purchased some part of my crazy obsession. All lovely people that I have met, the constant inspiration and kindness really does keep us going!
...I'm thinking a give away is in order. I'm thinking a Sausage dog softie and what ever else I decided to pack on the day, could be good.
So leave a comment and Moca will Ta-whit-ta- at the comment he likes the best!!

Oh this was the highlight of my year.
My beautiful friend Piri, now known as Dr Piri Cutts, allowed me to experience the greatest thing in the world!!
These little puppies are Burmese Mountain Dogs, that we helped delivered by C-section on Christmas Eve.
I stood and watch everything. From the Vet cutting the mums belly to the first baby being pulled out. The yuk side of it didn't even come into thought, and still doesn't to this very moment. We had to rub the 11 puppies to life until little squeaks came out of them!! Sigh!!
This little girl was the runt and the one I fell in love with. She was already out of her sack and if born by natural birth she would have died. She was only 3.3grams and as you can see fitted into my had, and I have small hands so she is really small!!
Thank you Piri for allowing me to experience something so beautiful. I will be your vet nurse any day. I think my blanket stitch is now good enough to sew up any operation!

Happy Saturday to all
Brooke and Moca

Congratulations on your 100 brooke!

When I first started blogging I was so sure everyone else had been doing it for AGES, but heaps of us have had our 100th posts in the last six months!

Yay for newbies!

Since we're doing a swap anyway, I don't need to be put in the draw - I'll have a wee sausage dog of my own soon - woo hoo!

Congratulations on 100 posts Brooke! Those little pups are so gorgeous. I bet you were tempted to keep on (or two) for yourself.

Hey nice stuff on hitting 100! that's dedication :)

Man so much jealousy on the dog birth, it sounds beautiful! I've only ever seen a pig give birth, and yes it has the whole miracle of life thing going on, but if you've ever seen a pig give birth, you'll know it ain't pretty! ha!

Well have fun making and giving your beautiful presents, it's always a blast to do so :)

You old blogger you!!! Congratulations on your 100th posting!

Good on you for embellishing the spirit of an animal birth. No matter what the circumstances; there is nothing more scared or more beautiful than a new life.

Especially a new born pup!!!

I've enjoyed your stories so far- here's to 100 more and beyond....
