Doesn't he have the cutest ears and the sweetest expression? Doesn't he look like a little 'huahua? Well, he's not! Tico (short for Taquito) is a sato, which is a stray from Puerto Rico, and he is a 'huahua mixed with something terrier-like.
I am posting Tico's photo (again) because the folks over at Munchkin Memoirs are having a contest. If you go to their blog post, you can play too!
After re-reading above, I decided that Joe needed some cheering up so here's one of Joe sitting in the cart at PetsMart (which is truly unusual if you know Joe) after having seen the resident veterinarian (*who was great with him btw). It is difficult to see, but Joe is wearing an Elizabethan collar to keep him from chewing his rump (which you can't see in this photo b/c it is covered by a towel to hide the wound which had just been debrided! ugh). His sweet ears are tucked by his head, little lovey boy! Doesn't he look pitiful?!? The photo was taken on Aug. 28, Friday evening. He is doing much better today - yeah!!
Chan and Sue are at fault, I mean responsible, for passing the contest along to me, so I want to give credit where due!
I hope everyone is doing well. I am looking forward to school starting back up on the 8th (yes, it is late this year) and I think DS is too. He's a senior and I just can't figure out where the years have gone....
I have a couple of FOs that I have not passed along lately (and I have some frogged projects too alas). This one is my second attempt at this particular pattern (BYOB), and, frankly, it stretches too much, even knitting it MUCH smaller than the first one. It is pretty though, yes?
