A Dogs Life Mini album

Happy Monday everyone..
I've been working on a little surprise mini for my best friends dog Chopper..he's a cute little Jack Russel mix that she saved from being put down..
I saw the Basic Grey's new Max & whiskers line and just knew that I had to have those papers for this mini..
I hope you like it as much as I do and it was a lot of fun to put together, even thought at times I really wanted to just quit and rip my hair out..LOL  :)
