Wondering about my knit-picking dog.
One of my wife's many hobbies is knit picking. She has many knit picking looms of different shapes and sizes. Last night she was using her big figure eight knit picking loom with her faithful dog at her side. I walked up and he raised his head to see me and to make sure I knew he was protecting my wife and he got his head through a loom opening. I thought it was cute and funny so took a couple of pictures. This is the first one:
He is quite content to be in any position as long as it is beside his Momma and he will protect her with his life. Don't ever get too close to her when he is there. He does not allow that!!
In that first picture he was giving me one of his warning stares. I backed off and he relaxed. I got this second picture without him noticing what I was doing:
Maybe one of these days I will gather up all her different looms and take some pictures of them, but for today the figure eight loom and Mr. Chang Lee are the subjects. Chang just hates to be alone. My wife is his number one choice but if she leaves the room, even for just a few seconds, he is up beside me. I guess that I am second choice. I would rather be the second choice than never chosen. Our three dogs are like children to us. Now you all have great knit picking day, you hear?
