Dazed and Confused

Our animal shelter mutt came home today. She's so sweet, but drugged out of her little doggy mind. Poor thing. At least she won't have another litter of pups. Sgt. Husband was just as cranky when he got fixed. (Even though it was 10 years before I met him, I still hear about it.)

I finished my crazy socks and had the crazy idea to overdye them green to make the colors less eye-searing. I totally forgot that one of the yarns was corn fiber. One sock is striped and the other isn't. Still, I consider this an improvement. I've got to work on more artful mismatching. Right now I still look like voices from outer space tell me what to knit. I need to take it down a notch.

I just spent 20 minutes petting Isabel. She was jealous because I was petting Fable and I had to rub her back until she quit crying. Spoiled.

Here is a link to Fable before we adopted her. She's been hit by a car. She's five years old. She's been at the shelter since October. She was the best damn dog in the whole place. Welcome home, sweetie

What a sweet face! I'm a sucker for dog faces. They steal my heart. She'll be a good friend for a long time.

Awww, puppypics!

Hey, those alien voices like bright colors. Sometimes, it's just easier to listen, give in, and then sneak back to "normal" colors when they're not watching. (Whatever "normal" is.)

I am definitely using that as my excuse the next time something I knit comes out wonky!

"But the voices from outer space said it would work!"

What a sweet little girl! My puppy looked the same after she got fixed.

Oh congratulations on your new dog, she is beautiful. We have two big giant mutts from the shelter, can't imagine life without them.
