OK, I did NOT know that you have a tattoo! Where? Where?

My "helping an animal give birth" story involves Trixie. The rest of my family had gone shopping for the day, but for some reason I stayed home. Trixie decided to give birth just then, but she didn't help the pups get out of the sacs . . . so I had to take a pair of scissors and cut them out. Just how a teenage girl wants to spend her afternoon. Incidentally, those pups probably saved the lives of my family members by waking my dad when our house caught fire in the middle of the night, so the grossness was definitely worth it.

I have two- One on my toe- one on my hip. Both done in Scotland when I was studying abroad. Still like the daisy on my toe- the hip one I could do without (It's a celtic woven ring).
