Rolly


I hardly every get much knitting done this time of the year. With the end of the college semester coming up in three weeks and the high school finishing the first week in June,  I'm almost always struggling to find much free time at all this time of year. And now, I don't anticipate knitting even a little bit until summer vacation because we have a new little member of our family to totally distract me. His name is Rolly, in honor of the fat, little dalmation in 101 Dalmations, who was so hungry he "could eat an elephant." Our little Rolly isn't that fat, but he was the chubbiest in the litter.  We're all officially in love, well, except for Gidget, but she'll come around.

And yes, those of you who know us,  we were looking for a "Rowdy clone." Russ looked at some other breeds, but we just kept coming back to beagles. We also thought about rescuing a dog, but we do lots of other P.C. stuff, and we really wanted a puppy. I'd kind of forgotten how much work a puppy is, but we've had a fun couple of days getting to know him and probably spoiling him too much. That's OK, Rowdy was a well-behaved doggie (for a beagle), and we spoiled him.

Congratulations on your new family member!

I love beagles, but admire those of you who have the patience and courage to train one! I'm sure he'll be worth all your efforts.

So stinkin' cute. It almost makes me want to run out and get one too. You can teach him to retrieve your yarn balls and dropped needles for you.

Okay, now I am in love too. growing up we were the lucky beneficiaries of the runt of an unintended litter. My great uncle had a kennel of beagles and spaniels for hunting, so our little sweetie was a beagle-cocker mix. She looked mostly beagle and had the sweetest disposition.
