Yesterday we tried again. Steu is that much older, and I'm hopeful we got at least one usable photo.
Still, I've seen lots of period photos of blurry dogs.
A few other doggy dots:
- Amazing collection of nineteenth-century pet photos, including this one of a Cavalier. Take the time to look; there are goats, birds (parrots, doves, a chicken, a hawk, a sparrow), kittens, a fawn, rabbits, and dogs of all kinds (terriers, greyhounds, Great Danes, mastiffs, poodles, pointers, spaniels, setters, and others of dubious ancestry). The collection also offers a great look at how pugs looked different in the nineteenth-century. (the site seems a bit unstable in urls; hopefully these links will work for awhile)
- On Sunday, we're going to the Canine Games at Purina Farms. We had a blast last year, and got a few hints that our tiny dog just may be a frisbee dog after all.
- I just started reading Loyal Hearts, the story of dogs during the Civil War. I can't say much about the text yet, but the photos are amazing.
Obligatory knitting content:
- This week I pulled out a project that had been balled up at the bottom of my knitting bag for at least three or four months and finally finished it. Photos forthcoming as soon as I can borrow a baby.
- I bought the ghostie sock yarn off of Rachel and am going to attempt it. I'm trying not to make them my October socks.
- The actual October socks are well underway; I'm knitting the heel flap on the first sock.
