Fur Babies Monday

Late Thursday night, our Internet went out and it wasn't repaired until Friday evening. In a couple of weeks, we will be getting a new Internet thingy, so hopefully, it will be more reliable. Our current Internet thingy goes out any time we get hard rains or strong winds. (As you can see, by my correct use of the highly technical term "thingy," Bill Gates will be calling any minute now to hire me.)

The good news is that the Kleenex box and I are trying a separation and so far it seems to be going pretty well. I'm definitely on the mend and hope to have the use of both sides of my nose any day now. WOo Hoo! The bad news is that I have very little to show of a fibery nature, although I did get a bit more spinning done on the Merino/Kid Mohair. I've almost finished the second bobbin and I'm really wanting to ply and cable it and see what my yardage is.

So, what is the Pink Lemon to do when all she has to show is a bobbin of white singles you saw last week? Call for furry backup is what! So, here are the Fur Babies! Above, you can see that Finn keeps getting bigger. He's looking more dog like every day and less like a puppy. We can see what he will look like as a dog now, and we think he's going to be beautiful. He's over 30 pounds now. I think he grew last night (yes, sometimes he seems to grow like that), because he was easier to carry yesterday. I plan on carrying him for as long as I can. I'm looking into getting a bag for him. I figure if Paris Hilton can carry her dog around, why can't I? Can't you just see me walking into a yarn store with my cute little doggy? Stuffed in a large duffel bag? With maybe someone else helping me to carry him?
Finn wonders why he had to get adopted by the crazy people.
Ramius also allowed a picture to be taken. He would like to let everyone know that he is personally taking over the training of Finn. We have taught Finn "come" and "sit" and we're getting there with "lie down." Ramius believes that more useful commands would be "go away" and "kneel if you must be in my presence." He is actually swatting at Finn now when Finn crowds him, which is a huge improvement. Of course, Finn thinks its funny and swats back at Ramius, and considering that Finn's paws are the size of Ramius' head, the cat does a bit of bobbing and ducking. Finn has stopped trying to tackle Ramius though, so I think that either Finn is learning cat manners, or they are getting their own relationship sorted out, or both.

Cute pictures! Finn sure is growing into a beautiful dog. And he will soon learn that Ramius is the boss.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. I think I might be getting a real connection with the kleenex box. Boo!

Anyhow, they'll get a good relationship going. The first couple of weeks we introduced the new dog to the old (8yrs old) cat, things were a little dicey, but it got better. Now, when they're swatting at each other they're both actively playing. So, I promise, it will definately improve =)

Finn is the happiest little guy I've seen! He looks like he's just always happy. Ramius is beautiful, too. They'll become the best of friends once everyone figures out the cat is boss. :o)

Finn looks like he fits right in! And I love furry animal pictures. Almost as much as fiber/knitting pictures. I am glad to hear that you are starting to feel better.
