Dogs on Thursday - Max as a baby

I said that we knew Max when he was little. Well, here is a picture I found of him when he first started roaming the neighborhood. It was taken last summer, I think in August. The vet says he is probably 18 months, I think he may be a little younger. I should of just took him in then, but he had a collar back then. Shortly after this picture, he didn't and he was at everyone in the neighbor hoods home. He has always had the best little temperment and been great with the boys.

Coffee Talk: Topic #2

Since some of us is beginning to see glimpse of Spring, while others are still getting snow have you change what projects are working on? Have you put away the hats, scarfs and mittens, and brought out the cute tank top sweater projects and lacy wraps? Have you change yarn to something more lighter and cooler, not so heavy and bulky?

I am doing a mixture really. I am working on these days a summer sweater from winter 2007 Knitty, Stardust. I decided to substitute the yarn for Brown Sheeps Cotton, in a robin eggs blue color. I am also working on the Swirled Pearl Shawlette, it is in Black Lacy Lambs Wool. It is a project to be given away next winter. I have been working on a pair of Superwash wool sport weight socks, in very wintery colors, that I dyed. Royal Blue, and a burgandy pinkish color.

What is the one thing that starts in Spring? ARE YOU READY FOR SOME BASEBALL? Well baseball has begun for us. I am the team mom (I know, I really don't need anything else on my plate). We are at the park at least 2 to 3 times a week and that is just with the oldest child, the youngest didn't want to play or we would be there alot more, on two different teams. However, I am able to cheer those Indians on while having my own STITCH AND PITCH. I will leave you with some pictures.

I think this guy is pretty cute if I say so myself.

Dogs on Thursday

This week, we had a few changes in Max's routine. He is having some separation anxiety.
Here was last week when he had free reign of the den, kitchen, and hallway. Now, after a very eventful day for Max, we are now having to crate him while we are at work. I came home Tuesday and the curtains were half hanging in the den window, I walked in to find the foam chewed up on the sofa cushions and a window cracked. So, we opted for a crate after discussing it with some of our friends. He is not liking the crate
but he has done very well. I am hoping this will be part of his routine and he will soon know we are coming home to him everyday. Even if he has been a little mischevious this week, who could resist a face like his?
