Procrastination Doesn't Pay

See the cute dog on the base of the lovely birdbath..........
It is a dog just like this one.........
(Peggy the above photo is just for you, since I can't send you snow I dug out a "snowy photo" from earlier this year.)

My sons thought it would make a great birthday gift, son #2 dropped it off and set it up on the porch.  Well here's where the procrastination comes into play, it rained earlier today and filled the basin with water, then this  "cute" dog.............
..............decided that he wanted to drink from it, that is when I said "gee I really need to move that", but I didn't do it immediately!   Later in the afternoon while having a "fun" time doing paperwork with the windows open enjoying the beautiful spring afternoon I heard the sound of breaking pottery.  Low and behold I am now regretting not taking a moment to move the bath out of reach! 

I didn't take any photos before I glued the many broken pieces but here is what it looks like now.........

  Thank heavens for this wonderful product, the photo is a little blurry, it's Gorilla Super Glue ..........

 it doesn't look quite as nice as it did before the break, but it's all in one piece and should hold up.  Tomorrow I will set the top back on the base and see how it holds up. 


  1. Oh what a shame Denise... hopefully it will hold up alright.

    Glad to hear you are getting some nicer weather.

    Have a great week...

    Hugs, Deb

  2. Oh no! Glad you were able to put it back together! Our cat used to break outs all the time! I can't remember how many I went through before I bought one that was just one piece. It seems to stay up OK.

  3. I'm sorry that happened. I love the innocent smile on Midnight's face. Are you sure he did it?

  4. That's dogs for you... even cute ones

  5. Love, love,love the snow photo!! Poor doggy was just wanting a drink. LOL You did a great job of gluing it back together. I think I would have just sat down and cried.


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
