KNITTING GAL

September 27, 2007

Oliver on Thursday............


We have been having a debate at my house about taking our pup to visit the kids for family weekend at their college. Now, you know that Oliver is a large Golden Retriever, even for Goldens. He weighs in at 95 pounds and is very active and curious guy (that's the big boy in the chair). We have a lovely family across the street from us that will take him into their home and watch him for the whole weekend. So no worries there. My son at school told his dad that he misses his pal and wants to see him. The Hotel we are staying at needless to say does not take pets, and my daughter that lives off campus has a roomie that is terrified of dogs! You would think that would end the discussion, but no, it was still going on until I finally said that is wasn't going to happen. The pup is coming on vacation with us in two weeks and he will just have to wait until then! Oh did I mention that the person causing all the ruckus was the hubby. He is so attached to his pup that he hates to leave him behind at any time. So what a good reason to have him come! Our son misses him! He will just have to miss him this weekend. Any way I am looking forward to seeing the children and having fun with them. I told my hubby he could always look at my blog if he misses him too much! I am mean, I know. But sometimes I have to come before the pup! LOL! P.S. He loves to sit in my chair that I sit in when knitting. Maybe he thinks the yarn will roll out for him and he can attack it! Who is the boss in this house? That's right it is Oliver, and he knows it!
Not too much happening on the knitting front, working on my swap package for Fall into Autumn and I finished a baby hat for one of the many moms that come into the library that are preggers. I try to make each new baby a hat and some booties. I will take pictures before I take them to work. Also to my Let's knit socks buddies....I will be back with a second sock started. I have really fallen of the sock wagon because I was so bummed with the way the toe finished up on the first sock. But I will start it in the car this weekend. Hope to have some great pics of Washington too.

Grover thinks Oliver is lucky to be able to sit in a people chair. Have a great weekend. I'm sure Oliver will, too.

Oh, take him for the trip! :)

Stupid hotels that don't allow pets. Pets are people, too! Plus, pets are a lot cleaner than some people I know.

Oh we are having the same delima at our house.
We took Elise with us last year but this year the hotel no longer allows dogs.

The chair rule here is "only if invited"
My hubby would be yelling leave em here.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

We have a female golden and we always take her with us, sometimes we have to stay at 'strange' hotels that allow dogs. But she has only been left at a kennel once and she still freaked about it!

Oliver looks like that chair belongs to him. Jonah hates to be kennelled, so usually my friend has him, he still sulks though, even although he has a great time at her house!

Hi Donna,

Could you please contact me regarding the Fall Into Autumn dishcloth swap? I sent a few emails but perhaps they went into spam.

Thanks!
