I am working on my grandson's dead fish hat. Red and black cotton yarn. He should like it. I have only ripped it apart twice.
A few photos for ya...
Look at the photo to the left to see what we see when we exit a store... Yeah, one has to have stickers, junk hanging from the rear-view mirror, different license plate holders... Something!, to distinguish one from another. Shopping becomes an adventure.
The proper name escapes. What is new?
I have been reading up on dog breeds. another Pekingese is not an option. It would be like trying to replace Maggie, if that makes sense. That would... hurt.
We have a few breeds that we like. They are ones others may find horrid. We have "met" these breeds in the community and like their personalities. After checking the breed's health and longevity stats, I think we are somewhat settled between the Pomeranian, Boston Terrier, and the Pug. Poms are the healthiest, longest-lived and most intelligent. BT's are second. the Pug still rules in personality, especially the males for that breed. Poms are fox-like in looks, can be easily trained to not yap and are very sweet in person. They are polite with strangers, but look to their human more, as it should be. BT's are rather cool in all way, similar to a Pug. I read up on them and it is said Himself's favorite breed, the French Bulldog, is part of the BT bloodline, but smaller, healthier and longer-lived. Explains the ears. We will probably see puppies and sit among them. Which puppy picks us, and go from there. Yep, neutered or spayed. I cannot do the breeding thing. We would end up with canine herds.
Posting some photos in the garden blog, then to bed. Will the excitement ever stop?
