She's a Parson Jack Russell Terrier and Dachshund mix, but she's undocked and ears are in tact, so people have a harder time telling she's a JRT.  Plus, Parsons are taller and skinnier than the JRTs that are in the movies and stuff.  I loves her.  She was a breeder reject and I rescued her from the humane society.

When she was 6 months old and we first got her a of people thought she was part or all dalmatian.  She has tons of spots. LOL

Kooshka is Russian for "cat."  I'm cruel that way  Shocked

How funny!  So many people thought Dottie was a Jack Russell when she was a baby.  For all I know, she could be...I know she's part border collie, the rest is a mystery.  I might have to send you some pictures, it's so rare for me to find a pup that looks so much like mine!

I wonder if I could freeze this? I usually make a double batch of all my cookies and freeze half for future use (I HATE measuring!!!) I don't want it to get sticky though. What if I freeze it, then when I want to use it I bring it to room temperature? Do you think that would eliminate the stick?

I honestly don't know.  You could make a regular batch, freeze a small part of it, then thaw and see how it goes so you're set for the next time.  It was really funny with my mom, though.  I told her I'd found this great recipe that didn't require refrigerating before rolling out, and how it was so easy, and she expressed interest. So I gave her the recipe, thinking I was going to save her lots of time waiting on cookie dough (with the "Do not chill" in big letters so she would be sure to remember).  So I asked her later, and she said it stuck like crazy, and she just used her regular recipe. I KNOW the stuff doesn't stick, so I asked her if she chilled it, and she admitted that she had.  So much for saving her time.  Smiley  I don't know if it sticks because it absorbs moisture from the air in the refrigerator, or if letting it come back to room temperature will solve the problem.  If I try, I'll let you know.  Smiley

More great packages while I was away from the computer. Maybe I should just stay close so I don't miss anything??  Smiley

As she predicted, my package from Puppy_girl arrived today, and I was in the midst of taking pics when I saw her previous post.

I love everything she sent.  It is apparent she did her homework.  I am not an easy person to stalk, as my wist was just created for this swap.

On to the pics!

The just opened package with the resident nosey butt offering his assistance:

After removing the stocking and card from the top -- all the wrapped goodies inside (again, our creature granting his permission for me to snap a photo):

My stocking.  I think it's amazing we both did patchwork and used white fur for the cuff!  Funny!

A scrapbooking apron complete with scissors holsters on each side.

A lovely crocheted bag.  It's a scream that we each made a crocheted bag for the swap!

A hot/cold pack.  Isn't it cute?  The mouth has an opening to remove the pillow so the case can be laundered.  Love it!

A tin of peanut butter/chocolate thumbprint cookies.  Peanut butter and chocolate is my absolute favorite food combo.  I am going to be nice and save them to share with my dh and dd, but I will likely be sorry.  My dh says he's never met a cookie he didn't like!

Finally, scrapbook stickers, brads, gel pens and a plant your own hyacinth kit.  I love the smell of hyacinths, and I am going to do this right away!

Thanks Puppy_girl!  You were an excellent swap partner!
