One more thing about the Miralda shawl from last post:
After I've read the Yarn Harlot's post about casting on HER Miralda shawl, I was a little worried I would encounter the same problems as she did. That's why I used a stitch marker every 20th stitch I've cast on and to my utter joy I only had to cast on ONCE!
I might have picked up the energizer bunny by mistake!!!
For all of you who'd like to see some more Happy pictures, here's one of my favorites to date. There's a dried leave hanging out of his mouth. He's grown, but the collar is still very loose on the smallest setting.
Here are both ears up! One day they are up, when he gets tired they are down, but that's the way it is. His ears will stay up when he's older. And I've got to get that green dried color off his ear. The thing is, when it gets wet it's all over the place.
Not to forget Biko. Out of solidarity she's got her face green too (or so I'd like to think). She was playing, fetching her tennis ball (she started to play again, as well as swimming), when she made a face plant. I didn't actually see it, I just heard an UMPH sound, and then she appeared like that.
Some more photos of both of them. You should click on this mosaic and go see them full sized, they are just lovlier that way and not cut off.
We still have to work on a better sleeping pattern during the night. I'm quite exhausted from too little sleep. On the other hand I've never had a puppy which likes to cuddle in my arms, held like a baby. When he gets tired he comes to me and wants to be picked up. He fell asleep on my lap several times. Too bad he'll soon be too big for that. He sleeps a lot during the day, but when he's up he's like a little maniac. In the evenings he's so full of energy, I LOVE his puppy runs, he literally bounces of the walls. He can play wonderfully by himself. Biko mostly avoids him, but in the evenings, when he's the wildest, she trys to teach him some manners. Not easy, since he does not give up.
He figured out how to climb the stairs, but then falls off, like a satiated tick. I told you he keeps me on my toes. I don't want him locked up in the kitchen all the time. I want him to learn and explore his new home, and he does. But we are all happy when he's tired and sleeps like an angel. He still uses my Birkenstocks to snuggle up. He has both of them in his crate during the night, and he does not chew them. He relocates them, and draggs them where he wants them, but not chewing. He chews everything else. During the day they are still mine though. No other shoe will do. He goes looking for them when he gets tired. Soooooo cute!
