I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

Painting with a Puppy

Here is a picture of our new puppy "Benny". We got him right before we moved to Indiana. He is now 12 weeks old and a whopping six pounds. We bought a small house in Indiana that needs a lot of work so we decided to do all the work ourselves and learn as we go. LESSON LEARNED #1 - DO NOT set the paint tray on the floor even for a second when there is a puppy in the house. I set the paint tray on the floor so that I could move something. As soon as I turned around my other two dogs chased Benny through the kitchen. Of course he ran right through the paint. It took me a while to catch him.....there were paint paw prints everywhere, including all over the living room carpet.

Here is one of my other dogs "Bailey". He learned along time ago to just sit by the mess and look innocent so that the other dog (Bear) gets blamed.
Before I cleaned up the mess I had to give Benny a bath so that he didn't start eating the paint. I couldn't believe how much paint I rinsed out of his fur!! He is now squeaky clean and spending his days picking on Bear and Bailey.
