One of the only circumstances under which I can imagine posting here without a single fiber-related photo is the one in which I currently find myself, that of having a new puppy in the house! Blog friends, meet Django. He came home with us on Tuesday, his seven-week birthday.

Lola instantly adopted him as her own and began telling him how things are.

Frankie, on the other hand, isn’t impressed.

I’m not sure whether or not I’ve ever mentioned it here, but my husband spent many years working with police and military dogs and still does some training in those areas. At nearly thirteen and fourteen, our two Belgian Malinois dogs, who’ve been his sidekicks since they were puppies, are getting up in years and prefer lounging to running around training all day. The plan is for Django to gradually become the new working dog in the house. He’ll learn all sorts of advanced obedience, tracking, and protection work, and he’ll be Paul’s companion when he does training with other dogs and their people. Primarily, though, he’ll be our sweet, silly lover boy.

We’ve been absolutely absorbed with him since he arrived. Hence, no pictures of the newly finished The Rain Outside shawl. I’m making slow progress on my Hitchhiker, though, so I’ll try to at least have a few pics of that to share with you soon.

Be well, my friends. And happy knitting!

      Hahaha! Jellybean might actually need to come here and give Lola a hand. Django is like a little moose. He’s already much bigger than Lola and keeps running right over the top of her without even realizing it. We’re trying to teach her to take up a little more space. 😉

Talk to me!
