Meet Cappy.... Cappy is a wire haired miniature daschund that joined our family when my daughter was born. She shares the same birthday as Akemi! Weird yah?
My father-in-law LOVED Kiki. I guess he always wanted a dog, so shortly after Akemi was born, they got Cappy.... That's why Kiki is so grouchy... lost attention because of Akemi and Cappy!!!
My father-in-law tried to teach Cappy tricks.... But she was only able to master one...
Chodai! We teach young children to place one palm over the other facing up to say "please" when they are young and can't really speak. This term was known as "Chodai" in my household. Whenever we said this, my daughter would make the motion and then we'd give her what she wanted. Well, my father-in-law decided to teach this to Cappy. Since she can't make the same motion with her paws, she sits up as shown to beg for food.... which is why our next image is named after her!
I decided to keep this card simple... Cappy is such a happy doggie, that I thought this sentiment by Hero Arts was a perfect match for her. After stamping it, it reminded me of those old label stickers that everyone had.. then it reminded me of washi tape! So I went through my stash and found a bunch of washi from Target that I bought awhile ago. Love that they sell them in a pack with different designs of all the same color. Makes it so much easier to match! Here's a close up of Cappy..
So, would love to take Cappy home? Well, not the real cappy, just this new stamp?
