Adopt a Pet Blog Hop

Welcome to Lindascreativity and "Adopt A Shelter Pet" Hop!  October is
National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, but we wanted to honor and celebrate all of our furry friends!  If you've come from visiting Maria Elean at, you're in the right place!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning.
this little dog, Mickey came into my life when I went to the Vets office with my other little Shit-zu.  A little old lady was his first home and when she passed away, the Vet adopted him.  He spent his days at the Vet's office in a cage.  The Vet asked me if I would like to adopt him for free!!!  He had all his shots and was a very healthy 4 year old.  I couldn't say no, he was bouncing all over the place and had plenty of kisses for me.  We had our struggles at first, he is one little dog that likes to try and teach you that he is in charge, but then Mike came into his life and I realized then, he is truly a man's dog.   These two are always together.

I used Four legged friends for the little dogs in the corners and papers from the scrap box.

Now it's your turn!  Link up your purr-fectly wonderful pet-themed project at CookingWithCricut.  Here are a few guidelines:

Must Follow the challenge topic.
Must be a NEW project for this challenge.  No back dated posts please.
Must have a link back to this post on your blog.
Must link your project post through inlinkz and not just your blog.

You may gladly combine challenges...we love to pile it on TOO!

The Design Team will pick their three favorites and one lucky person will be chosen randomly to win one of the prize packages being offered in this hop.  There is also a prize package for just leaving us some love (a comment) on the CWC blog.  One catch, those leaving comments MUST be a CWC follower.  Each prize winner will receive a $20 gift voucher-download from  The Design Team's top three will each receive $5.00 gift voucher-download from

Now head on over to Heather at to see what they've cooked up for you!

LOVE THIS! You know that I am a HUGE Mickey fan. Love that little guy - he has personality plus and love just oozes out of him! I truly think that 'rescue' dogs are such a big surprise package. Every day they show a bit of their true personality - and if you give them the love and the time - they explode into the neatest dogs. I have more 'stories' about my 'rescue' yorkies than I do the one I got as puppies!!!

Great Job always...hugs to Mickey!

Awww . . . don't you just love it when you find that one person or animal you just connect with at the heart! Such sweet pictures! My Shih Tzu is a rescue pup who's elderly owners could no longer take care of her. She is a true delight!

Love your LO, Linda! And what great pictures.
