The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time. ~ Bertrand Russell

This blog used to be about knitting, but it seems to have morphed into a dog blog. I do actually have some knitting to show you this week. The foot of one sock is done!

One foot, done!

I name all of my projects in Ravelry, but can’t think of a name for these socks. The name of the colorway is Good To Be Girl, but I don’t really like that name. Any ideas?

Last Sunday we had snow. Luckily, we went to the park on Saturday, when it was a bit nicer. Luka spent most of the time on his leash (I don’t fully trust him yet), but I did allow him some off leash time. He was very happy.


He explored with his sister.


Fun in the stream

He showed off his agility.

Well, until he lost his footing and fell.

And he ran.


It turns out that Luka loves to run.


Sadie loves to run, too, but Luka left her in the dust.

Sadie took time to smell the flowers.

She also ate some grass (she loves to eat grass).

She also contemplated the best way to deal with rushing water falls.

About two seconds after this photo was taken Luka misjudged where he had to jump and instead of jumping over Sadie he crashed into her. (She was fine, just a bit startled.)

Sadie has no idea Luka is about to plow into her

Both dogs enjoyed the ice cold stream water.

Mmmmm....cold water.   Yummy.

We all enjoyed resting together on top of the hill.


Both dogs crashed on the way home.

And they stayed comatose all evening.

Thank you to everyone who left such wonderful comments about Luka. I’m still amazed that no one claimed him at the Humane Society. He is a very good dog and is quickly adapting to living here. Even though Luka annoys Sadie at times (he can be a pesky little brother), I think she looks happier since he moved in.

I no longer feel horrific guilt when I leave for work. I like knowing that Sadie has a friend to hang out with all day. They make a great pair.
