And now for something completely different

Hubby and I spent the past weekend building a dog.  Yep, you read that right.  Let me explain.  Hubby, our daughter Meg and I are all Whovians, that is, big fans of Doctor Who.  Meg has also gotten her college roomie hooked on the show, so the girls plan to to dress up as two different regenerations of the Doctor for Halloween this year.  Meg chose #4, played by Tom Baker, and one of his companions was a little robotic dog named K-9.  So Hubby and I decided to surprise her with her very own K-9.  We had a lot of fun going up and down the aisles at the hardware stores and finding things to use as components.  It was pretty challenging, but that's also part of the fun.  We spent just about the entire weekend on it.  We're going out to college tonight to hear her sing (she has an amazing voice and sings jazz), and we're taking him so she'll have him for Halloween. 

You can look up pictures of the original K-9 on line - there are plenty of them.  Meanwhile, here is our version, K 9.5:

  1. Terrific - I never saw the Dr. Who series with Tom Baker but I did see the short lived series about one of his companions who had the dog. Great job on K-9!
