I could be whining about the weather, and even more about DST, but I wont. Instead I've some last pictures of this winter to show:
Apparently he looks like Rin-Tin-Tin in this picture (except that Happy's coat is white).
Love the action shots!
Going, going, gone! Throw the Frisbee already!
Since our backyard is off limits to the dogs right now, we've got to get them exercised somehow, which means more walky walkies. It's good for us too. Yesterday we drove a little north to walk in the countryside, dirt road, less traffic etc.
There was a hilly road, me/Happy, David/Biko. I'm still desperately trying to get him to heel and don't pull on the leash so much. It's getting better every day, but boy a lot of patience is required. Anyway, I was up that hill in no time, thanks to Happy, when I heard Biko's whining behind me. I was so focused on Happy and heeling, that I didn't realize, that we were only a dot in the distance for David and Biko. She wanted to catch up with us, but had to heel. That was kind of funny!
It's still hard to get Happy's attention, when out and about. He does all his heeling, and other commands I give wonderfully, as long as we are in the house, in the driveway, or in the backyard. We set one foot on the road outside our property, and he's a changed dog. I don't exist anymore. I'm just an annoying lump, that he has to drag behind him. Anyway, it's getting slowly better. Patience!
I still knit, in case you are wondering: This is going to be the lovely Hamamelis shawl. I've never knit a shawl that slow! I LOVE the design, you just wait and see after it's blocked! But I'm still missing some of my knitting mojo. Besides, I'm watching MacGyver episodes, and then I make mistakes, or don't know where I am in the pattern. Still, it will be finished eventually. I'm knitting this with Fluffy Cat yarn from Wandering Cat yarns in Pink Pearl. It's an alpaca/silk/cashmere blend - yummy!
