1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Significant Other Swap - Round 5 on: April 05, 2007 06:27:11 AM
I have had a few people email me about my baby so I though I would just post it on her becuase some people said they felt bad about asking. Please if you have any questions about her ask I am happy to answer them.
Ginger's skin condition is passed from her mother, allergies (grass and plastic mostly) and terrible separation anxiety. We got her from a puppy factory in Boone, NC. We did not know if she would have any problems or she would be healthy. We soon realized something was wrong. She has to deal with the vet every 2 weeks at this point but it want be much longer till it will be every month mainly for anxiety. We have gone to 9 vets and we finally found one that took the time to help her. She looks so much better now then she did better she visited his office. She did not have any hair on her ears, around her eyes, and half way up her back. Every vet we took her to said she has mange and then would perform the test and it was always neg.  After the test would come back neg they would say it is environmental allergies that will not show on testing. Finally we tested for allergies and some did show plastic, grass, pollen, nylon ect. So we went through changing her foods (totaling 16 times) Purina LA, Purina HA, all fish, pedigree, nutria, high doses of omega 3, ect. If you would have seen her just a few months ago you would have truly felt sorry for my baby. When she had photos taken with Santa he was even giving suggestions. We have been through a time with our little girl but love her to death and will do what every it takes to make her happy. Hopefully by summer she will be cured for good and just be down to one pill a day to maintain it, one for anxiety, and one for allergies, instead of the 6 and one oral. She has been a trooper the entire time and loves the ladies at her vet they are so sweet to her and the vet he is just the best we have found. Sorry to flood you all with that but incase someone was battling with decideing to email me but felt bad for asking. I an very open to talk about it because some people may go through the same thing. We have been from the mountains of NC to the Beaches of NC trying to find help for herand she finally got hte vet that has made her quality of life inprove.   Wow that was alot sorry.

You all are so great!! Thanks for the tons of encouraging comments.
Can he sew on a button? 
  He says he can but I have not seen it lol!!
I think he will sew again. He will do great things if he does do more sewing.

Thanks for the comments I have read all them to him and it is boosting his ego so I think he will sew again. He says he really did enjoy it but he is scared to mess up the fabric. I dont think he messed this peice of fabric up so I have no worries he will mess up the next if he tries again. He says watch out he might surprise me and make me something else for Valentines Day. I hope he does!!!

Well he found out what I got him for Valentines Day and wanted it early so thinking he would not take me up on the deal I told him he had to sew something. He made me a scarf.  Well I had to brag on him since it was his first project and I think it turned out excellent. So here are the photos
Him sewing for the first time

The finished scarf

Well hope you all enjoy and maybe with some encouragment he will keep sewing because for not help he done great!!!!!

She sent my husband 3 pair of PJ pants and set of Star Wars coasters and a calendar. He was so excited  as you can see in the photos.
This is him with all his goodies
