From Harpo's Diary Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Miss Julie couldn’t take her eyes off of me! My fresh snip from the barber shop left me looking rather dashing.

I was super-duper thirsty when I got to the library. So I slurped down a few vessels of H20, and then I was ready to go!

I put myself in the down position to listen to a new library book called Bed Hog by Georgette Noullet.
Golly was that good!

And then I heard The Adventures of Taxi Dog  by Debra Barracca and I realized … I am eight years old and have never ever been in a taxi. I better add that to my bucket list!

I heard a couple of Clifford books: Clifford and the Big Parade and Clifford Makes the Team by Norman Bridwell. As one of the largest PAL  dogs, I can relate to that big red dog; I love hearing about his adventures and mishaps.

While some children took turns reading to me, the others made cool little Doggie Reminder Clips.
I think I’ll make one to remind the folks in my home to “Indulge the Dog!” Humans. You gotta leave ‘em hints!

Doggie Reminder Clip Craft  

Supplies

  • 1 clothespin
  • 1” strip of magnet
  • 1 wooden scoop spoon (plain or painted)
  • 1 pair of googly eyes
  • 1 pompom
  • Black or brown felt scraps
  • 1 index card
  • Liquid glue
  • Markers


Procedure

  1. Glue the magnetic strip to the back of the clothespin.
  2. Glue the clothespin to the wooden scoop with the clip opening at the top.
  3. Glue the googly eyes on the wooden scoop spoon (with the narrow part at the top).
  4. Glue the pompom on the wooden scoop spoon at the bottom to form the dog nose.
  5. Cut out floppy ears from the felt scraps.
  6. Glue the ears in place on the wooden scoop spoon.
  7. Write a note on the index card, and put it in the clip.
  8. Put the clip on a magnetic surface (example: a refrigerator) to use as a reminder.
  9. Enjoy your craft or give it to someone else to enjoy.


Peace and Love,
The Big H (A.K.A. Harpo)
