My first scrapbook

We had to have one of our dogs put to sleep a few weeks ago. When we told my 6 year old niece it was going to happen, she was devastated so I offered to make her a scrapbook. Well, it turned into a book of all the pets I have ever owned in my life, even the ones she didn't know....but they had to be in there She was also very specific in some of the colors and certain pages

I finished the book today and delivered it to her. Thought I would share with fellow pet lovers as some of my family and friends think I am nuts lol.

I needed 1 more page and came across the photos of her in the poodle costume from her first halloween. I had to include them and had her going for a few days about a poodle named Fifi whom we had to re-home cause she just too big My poor niece thought long and hard about Fifi because 1. She couldn't remember her and why did she not have any photos of this Fifi and 2. We have never re-homed a dog before so why would we possibley get rid of Fifi just for getting too big when we had a great dane????

I finally showed her the photos...she didn't find it amusing but they were too cute not to put them in. My niece has the same sense of humor I do so she did appreciate the joke, but still doesn't think "Fifi" should be in her photo album

I think they're great, bj!!! Love the Fifi story, too! And I think your niece's taste in color and pages is just fine! What a wonderful memory book!
