Daisy Bone Name Bday Tag

My fur friend, Daisy, is 9 today Sat 8/6. I adopted/rescued Daisy 2 yrs ago. Daisy was 7 when she was dropped off at the local shelter. I went to the shelter and walked her a couple days and then on the 3rd day I brought her home. Not sure why I did not bring her home on the 1st day but sure glad she was there each day I returned and happy to be walked. That weekend was Clear Out the Shelter annual event where all adoptions/rescues were free. I did not want to wait till weekend and the $20 I paid for Daisy was the best $20 I spent.

I kept her name of Daisy and last yr added the name of Ray in honor of actress Daisy who played Ray the Star Wars character.

I started sewing Daisy dog collar scrunchies when my hubby bought me a Brother sewing machine. Sewed the Birthday dog collar scrunchie using fabric I bought at JoAnn's.

Daisy does not play with toys of any sort much other than on occasion a tennis ball inside the house and outside a wooden block or stick or a dog rubber tire. For her birthday I made the dog collar scrunchie and got her a new dog tag with BB8 on it for Star Wars tribute of her Ray part of her name. She will also receive some special treats.

Bought a couple Cricut digital cartridges during 33% off sale of which one included Disney Mickey Font.
