KNITTING GAL

Stricktly Dogs on Thursday.....


I have a picture today of a great pup friend that has be gone for a year. He was my other Golden's (Holly)best friend and we loved him dearly. I have such good memories of him that I thought I would share his picture and a quick story about him. Our friend works construction and found him on a sight he was working on. The pup was there for several days and so he took him home. Our friend is also our neighbor and the first time I met "Petey" was hearing him "knock" at our back door. He would bang is large head on the door and wait for Holly to come out and play. He loved to run in our house and jump on a bed. We watched him when our friends went on vacation and he slept just as you see him, all cuddled up on pillows and snoring away! We loved him dearly.....So in keeping with the sleep theme here is Oliver having a nap after a hard day playing. So innocent looking!! Stay well and knitting goodies to follow.

Dogs look just like men when they sleep- all innocent and cute!

Isn't it amazing how the dogs in our lives stay so strong in our hearts? Sweet and poignant story. As for your lil boy? Of course he's innocent. At least until proven guilty, right? Grover and I send our big old hugs and slobbery kisses to you both!

That was a very sweet story. Madison needs a friend to play with her. She loves to play and her friend, Big Madison, is 8 and doesn't like to play!

Petey had a creative way of knocking. Big woofs to him and to Oliver. I hope Oliver's dreaming about something good.
