Lately, if I happen to get onto Henry for barking in the house, or pawing (scratching) at my legs because he wants me to pick him up - there's a little voice that scolds me with, "Hey! That's my Bubba!... Continue reading

so sorry for just replying to you - I used the Saw Tooth ring hangers - the nails just tap in gently to hold the saw tooth on, and then just a regular picture frame hook to hang on the wall. Here is the link: http://www.homedepot.com/p/OOK-20-lb-Steel-Sawtooth-Ring-Hangers-3-Pack-50203/100172613 Hope this helps!
Sherry, I don't. I would love to say that I could, but I just don't have the time to sew right now. The summer time is my only time to sew as a teacher during the school year :)
