Our Cane Corso Monty is 6 months old, and has earned the nickname The Full Monty as he is so big hahaha!He has gone through 4 eye surgeries for Cherry Eye in the last 2 months, the last being a partial removal of the tear gland, just leaving the duct in tact, he looks so much better. Here he is just after the op, feeling very sorry for himself, trying to get on the bed but still too out of it.
He weighs 40 kgs (88 lbs) and is 61 cms tall at the withers(24 inches), the average height of a fully grown Corso already, big boy!

And these cute photos of Biscuit and Scallywag
Here is another LO of my DD using KimB Designs new kit Spirit Wild Child, one of my very favourites of hers!

Kim also has a new CU Grab Bag in her store, only $5.50 for 5 brand new full sized products + one designers inspiration. (Full reveal in store)
And I did the DSO June Colour Challenge using some of the goodies in this bag.

Party Party Party...

It's been a hectic couple of weeks, with rugby season in full swing again, and my middle son Tristan, turning 21 on 6 June, and we had a Wild West party for him on 11th. It's always fun organizing this type of theme party, but I must admit I am always relieved when it is over!Here are a few photos:

Please visit Bunny Cates blog, she has a charity event blogged to help find a cure for Alzheimer's. Any help would be appreciated!

"Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this devastating disease.

This year, to help those affected by Alzheimer’s, I’m participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s to raise funds and awareness.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research, and funds I raise will go directly toward supporting their efforts.

I know I can make a difference with your support! Will you consider making a donation? It’s easy to give online by following the link below.

The end of Alzheimer’s starts here – with a gift from you. Thank you in advance for your generosity."

I have another CU freebie
