Skye News Alert! Brought to you by Skye!
Skye came to us with shorn hair around the body and legs but unusually long and scraggly hair around the ears and face. In other words, she had a bad haircut.
The shelter did mention she had matted hair when she arrived, and had a rough time at the groomers’, probably because she wasn’t used to being groomed.
How anyone can own a pet and not take care of it, I can never understand. At the very least, comb their hair! Right?!
Anyway, slowly…I’ve been grooming her, a little bit here, a little bit there… A little bit at a time since she’s afraid of the clippers. I can use small scissors but the electric clippers terrify her.
She trusts me enough now to let me cut her facial hair. She has so much hair on her face, no wonder people mistake her for a boy all the time. Haha…that’s a Skye joke for you!
On top of it, the shelter gave her a blue leash. That’s why my neighbors all thought she was a boy.
But I told Skye,”Don’t worry, Skye, I’ll give you a makeover… I’ll make you pretty, I promise.”
And look, when I said that to her, she became so happy.
The Best Apple Crumb Pie Ever from Debbie @ The Mountain Kitchen
“I am such a sucker for apple pie, and this apple crumb pie looks amazing! A perfect fall dessert!” — Antonia
“Hey, it’s the best apple crumb pie ever! Do I even need to say anything else?! Let’s all get apples, and make this!” — Angie
Elderberry Tart with Cassis from Sarah @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed
“[This tart] is sure to propel us out of our seats and go foraging for elderberries! The custard flavored with crème de cassis and the rich pastry makes me want to have a slice now! Plus,the photographs are absolutely brilliant and drool worthy!” — Sandhya
Upside-Down Peach Cake with Hot Rum Sauce from Julie @ Hostess at Heart
“Where do I start? I don’t know what I want more, the hot rum sauce or the amazing cake!” — Antonia
Corn Hurda in Papad Bowl from Sandhya @ Indfused
“Okay, this is just too clever and too intriguing for me. First, the papad bowl! I know what papad is, but I’ve never even considered making it into an edible bowl. How cool is that? And as far as the hurda is concerned, it’s something new I just learned. Why haven’t I been invited to a hurda party before?!” — Angie

Thank you! One of my neighbors said the same thing! 😀
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
Skye is such a pretty girl! Bring on the pink and a little bling! Thank you for featuring my cake this week and I am so happy to be hosting with my buddy Linda!
Thanks, Julie. I’ll pass on the compliment to Skye; I’m sure you’ll get a tail wag 😀 Thanks for cohosting!
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
My Maci doesn’t like her face washed but what us girls do for beauty! You’re welcome for hosting! I wish I could do it more!
You know I was thinking we should do a Fiesta Friday challenge. Maybe you can host that??? Maybe a Christmas challenge?
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
I’ll email you Angie!
Elaine @ foodbod says
Gorgeous little Skye, she looks so smart, you’ve done a great job xxx
Thank you, thank you!! And I’ve put you down for Oct 21, is that ok? I think I’ll have a first-timer as the other cohost since you’re a veteran. Will let you know who.
Elaine @ foodbod says
Skye is so cute! She looks so happy too. You both are lucky to have each other.
What a pleasant surprise it is to see my Corn Hurda in a Papad bowl being featured! Thank you so much!
Thanks, Sandhya! Yup, I think we’re meant for one another. I feel like I’ve known her all my life, lol. I had to feature that corn hurda; I have to try it! This way I won’t forget 😀
That sweet picture of Skye makes me want to get another doggie 🙂 Great dessert features and Sandhya’s recipe I was busy online trying to find out what everything was – like what is hurda and papad!
You should, Judi, they’re such great companion. Skye would come to me and warm my feet when I’m watching TV. Now I don’t need my little heater anymore, saves me on electricity haha… They serve papad in Indian restaurants and I’ve bought them and fried them myself, too, very good! Hurda is new to me, too! 🙂
Such a cute and happy looking dog! You must have really good energy around her:)
Thanks, Monika! Yes, we’re well suited for each other. Our temperament is similar, I think ?
Skye is so adorable! It was so much fun hosting 😀 Happy Fiesta Friday!
Thanks! Let me know when you can cohost again, please!
You’re welcome! I will 😀
She is adorable, Angie! You must be so thrilled to have such a sweet dog at last!
By the way, can you let me know who I am co-hosting with next week, so I can contact her?
Have a great weekend! 😀
I am, Julianna! We waited long enough but we really found the best dog in the world! Your cohost is Zeba @ Food for the Soul. Let’s have fun! ?
Sarah 'n Spice says
Skye is too darn cute!!! Hope you have a great weekend and happy FF!
Thanks, Sarah! I just hope and pray it won’t rain tomorrow so we all can have a great weekend! ?
She is simply gorgeous Angie and am so happy she found a new home with you <3 <3
Thanks, Naina! I make her happy and she makes me happy. It’s a wonderful relationship ?
She is such a lovely little dog, so glad she has found your loving home and looks great for it!
Thanks, Caroline! I’m glad she’s settling in very nicely. I was worried she would miss her previous owner and try to run away, but looks like she’s very happy here ?
Michelle @ Giraffes Can Bake says
Angie!!!! Your IG comment gave me a kick up the butt to come link up finally! I’m sorry I’ve been sooooo absent, I barely have time to bake lately! And I don’t like to link up unless I can commit to visiting other links. But I’m very poorly at the moment, so figured I might have time to visit at least some in between napping!
I’ve missed so much though! You got a puppy!!! She’s gorgeous! We have a long haired dachshund and even though we brush her every day and cut her fur every week, she still gets loads of mats, can’t believe people who get long haired dogs and don’t take care of them!
And that’s funny everyone thought she was a boy, good thing dogs don’t care haha! We take care of my sisters dog, he’s a boy but he has a pink lead and pink and sparkly harness!
Heyyyy!!! Look who’s here!!! So great to see you back here, where you belong, haha… Oh boy, I’d better step it up with Skye, I need to get her some blings and sparkles. Do they make dog nail polish, I wonder ?? Really is great to have you back, Michelle and I understand about not having time. I haven’t posted a recipe for ages!!
Zeba@Food For The Soul says
Skye is beautiful….I want to hug him!!
You can have as many hugs as you like, Zeba. She wouldn’t mind ?
Ai | Ai made it for you says
Skye is just SO adorable!! And very lucky to have you as her mom 😉
Thanks, Ai! I guess you can say she’s lucky, lol. We give her lots of love and attention, but she’s a good dog, she deserves it! ?
Skye looks so pretty and perfectly groomed! It sounds like she feels right at home and what a lucky little Skye! Have a great weekend! 🙂
Thanks Petra! She’s getting a little spoiled, only eating her kibbles when hand fed, lol. But we love her anyway ??
I love to spoil my pooches and they love it so much I am sure it is our duty! 🙂
Skye is such a cutie! And she loves her haircut!
My dad used to have a westie. Loved that dog. We would dress her up all the time and she was such a good sport.
Also, my Luna says hi! She’s a rescue too!
Thanks! And to think I wanted a poodle! Which is equally as cute, of course, but I think Westies may be better suited for me, temperament wise. Like you said, they’re very tolerant ? Skye said hi back to Luna ?
Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed says
It’s great to see Skye now she’s had time to settle in Angie. Our dogs have all been rescue dogs and it takes a long time for them to learn to trust again. It’s brilliant that she’s letting you cut her hair around her face, you’ve done a grand job.
It was a lovely surprise to see my elderberry tart featured, thank you. I’ve moved countries this weekend, from France to Guernsey for the winter so I haven’t had time to post a recipe. Hopefully I’ll get time ot blog hop x
Skye seems to love it here, but there are still issues, mostly having to do with anxiety and fear. Typical of dogs that have gone through tough times earlier in their lives. I just have to be very patient with her, and I am ? I love the idea of that elderberry tart! And good luck with the move, hope everything goes smoothly!
I really can tell that Skye loved her make over.
It’s so sad I don’t have anything for this week’s FF, but I am on my way to the table now. 😀
Have a lovely week ahead, Angie. x
That’s ok, you can still party and sample the goodies! ??
I need a makeover too! 🙂 Skye looks gorgeous!
Come on over! I’m an expert by now, lol. No, you don’t need one, Josette. You’re perfect just the way you are! ??
Cynthia Reyes says
Yum, yum, yum!
Debbie Spivey says
Skye is so cute! Thanks for the feature this week! Happy FF!
Thanks and you’re welcome! ?
The Hungry Mum says
Ohhhhh… I am fasting today and now I want one of everything here! All so delish.
You’re fasting AND viewing food blogs?!?! That’s worse than going to the grocery when hungry! ??
