Yet another waste of time...





Yesterday I was browsing around on "Club Chein" ( a fun Frenchie site) I found a link to a paper project for a French bulldog.  The person who posted it said she did hers in about an hour.  Looked like fun, so I printed out the templates, along with their Japanese instructions.  After FOUR HOURS of cutting, folding & gluing, this is what I came up with.  Pretty cute, huh?

Naturally, Brutus did not find my expenditure of time on this project to be amusing.  I didn't do it all at once, but any work was accompanied by little cries & snorts aimed at re-focusing my attention on the REAL Frenchie in the room.  When I finally finished it, Brutus got to meet his new little friend.  Initially he was inquisitive, but when he found out it wasn't a toy for him, he was disgusted.  During his final moments with his paper likeness Brutus resorted with his default maneuver: he tried to eat it.  I snatched it away just in time, and now have my handiwork proudly displayed out of Brutus' reach :)

Who's this?

Hey there little guy!  Wanna play?

Well, if you're not good for playing, 
then maybe you're good for eating...

Just look, don't touch?   Sheesh....  
The things I have to put up with!

Time to go wash the Elmer's glue off my hands before I start sticking to the keyboard!
