About Me

Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Lorenzo & Sophia

For the last two days "Lorenzo" hasn't been himself. 
When Lorenzo was around 3 yrs old. he had a 
running accident with "Isabelle", they both chased the ball at the same time and 
Isabelle, literately  ran over Lorenzo. After we got Isabelle out of the way, 
Lorenzo was laying down yelping at the top of his lungs and 
his back leg was not able to ben back to normal.

After taking him to the Veterinarian ER, he had surgery on his left back leg, 
and a very small plate had to be placed round the knee cap 
so it would not slip out of the socket. That was about 5 years ago now and 
Lorenzo is approx. 8 yrs old this year.  I have to look for his birth certificate record
to get his exact date. After the surgery, he was in the hospital for a week, then 
he got to come home and recuperate. After two weeks, Lorenzo was back to his old 
self, no problem. Isabelle and Lorenzo, and Grizzly went back to sleeping
together and being the pack thay are today. With the exception of Sophia, the 
new addition to the pack. Lorenzo and Sophia bonded first, his fatherly 
instincts took over and both of them related to each other very fondly.

Yesterday and today, Lorenzo has had trouble walking. His back legs 
give out, and he is in pain for a while until the pain seems to pass. 
I called a horse veterinarian friend of mine and she prescribed a
dog pain relief aspirin, every 3 hrs., and for now Lorenzo sleeps in a 
kennel with a heading blanket. When its time to take him out I have to
cokes him with some cheese to come out and then take him outside. 
I hope as the days move forward Lorenzo's pain will not be so
extreme and with the help of the warmer days approaching 
he will be able to lay out in the sun next to the pool.
