We have a Lab named Kiana who is a certified therapy dog working with Kids and senior citizens. She recently was injured after a pit-bull attacked her. Surprisingly she held her own in the fight and only had one minor injury. (she thinks she is tougher than she is,,, LOL ) Why her bite wounds on her shoulder healed we had to postpone going to work with the kids until healed. She pouted every Fri. and Sat, as she knows what days she goes to work…Weird & hard to believe I know.
Yesterday she was back at work after 2 weeks off. Figured I make a quick present for her. Blondie says it was an excuse to make something before the next major project. LOL
In this project, I used Blue Oak from Tule Peak Timber here in California owned by Ex-Lumberjock Rob. It is one of the hardest woods to work with. Takes a lot of time to cut and sand but I think it is amazing. The pattern came from a friend who came up with the idea for a three-bowl dish holder we made on here a while back. I only needed two holes as I only have one pup. Therefore, I modified it original pattern.
I used 5/4 Oak, Pocket hole screws and teak oil rubbed on. Approx 28 inches long 10 inches wide.
Quick and fun Hope you enjoy all comments welcome.
