Remember my jogging buddy Sadie? It is too cold now for me to be outside much because it bothers my athsma and all the bad weather bothers Sadie too. Poor Sadie - since the arrival of snow and ice and SALT - she licks and licks and licks her paws and gets them all split and sore. She has a mighty limp going on right now. The only way to get her to leave her paws alone is to put on the cone. Doesn't she look like an angel dog with her halo?
She is such a sweet dog and just loves it when I come over - here she is trying her hardest to get in close to say hi - except that cone thing hurts when she bangs it into your leg. Ouch!
Here is her "little sister" Sophie. Sophie is a mini Australian Shepherd. My sister has always had labs and full sized A. Shepherds and Sophie is the 1st mini. She is ever so soft and energetic. And she loves to steal anything you put down - last time I was over she stole my sneaker before it was completely off my foot! Last night I held on to them as I took them off and put them in the closet - but believe me - she was standing right there at the ready.
Their very beautiful Christmas tree!
While we visited I worked on my sock. Almost done, but I am thinking I need to rip back a bit and start the toe decrease further up? I don't know what happened here because usually I knit until I am a few rows above where my big toe starts and then start decreasing and get a perfect fit. This time - well, I still have 2 toes sticking out. No problem, I thought I would just add a few more rows but this is needing more and already my sock is starting to have a chimney. Hummm. Any ideas?
