Monday Show and Tell: Emma loves this dog

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Mondays are for Show and Tell

Summer girl

… and it’s probably the realest kind of dog we’re ever going to see around here.

I asked Emma if she wanted to show something for Show and Tell. This is what she chose. This is Summer Girl with her puppy Red. Emma made her at Build-a-Bear last September. [see Flickr set here.]

Emma says: “I am so proud I actually made her. She wasn’t difficult to make because people were there to help me. I love dogs and huskies are my favourite kind of dog.”

Interested in playing along?

– help your child find something they want to share – toys are okay, but I would love to see something different. Something interesting, something they made, they cherish, an heirloom, a treasure, a secret.
– photograph it
– post it on your blog along with their own commentary: What is it they chose to share and why?
– come back and let us know if you participated by posting a link to your show and tell in the comments.
– I encourage everyone reading along to leave a comment for the blogger’s child. Ask a question. Or two! Get them thinking and talking.

Sarah did a great job making her Huskey. We have a real one at home she is welcome to cuddle with :).

Hi, Emma. Ever since I first glimpsed this picture of you with Summer Girl and Red, I haven’t been able to forget how proud and attentive your face looks. I get the feeling you really care for and take good care of your dogs!

Maybe someday you’ll get to care for a real, live husky dog. Do you think that would be fun? It’s a lot of responsibility and you have to take it seriously (I’ve had dogs most of my life, and have two right now) … but it can be very rewarding and can fill your life with a special kind of love. Even if you and your family can’t do that right now, you’re obviously doing a good job with Summer Girl and Red.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
