I have the best daughters ever! They got me a dog for Hanukkah! (Sadly we had to put our Golden down two months ago and they knew I wanted another dog.)
What else do you name a dog given on Hanukkah, but Hanukkah Harry. Harry for short. He came complete with a singing dreidel.
Harry is a 5 month old, mostly pointer, rescue dog from North Carolina that found it’s way to our local Humane Society.
He is a total love. We do have to move all manner of things to high ground. He tried to make off with a ball of yarn already. We had a bit of a chat about that.
He does cut into my knitting time, I’ll have to work on that. On a knitting note, I did manage to finish one Hanukkah present, Honey Cowl knit with Schaefer Nichole fingering weight yarn. You have to work 3 rows of reverse stockinette at the end before binding off and I made it with that little bit of yarn left. I hung it on her coat as a surprise. Of course the weather isn’t warm enough for a coat, so she didn’t notice. The little bugger!
The rest of the family got the promise of knits to come. They were good with that.
Puppy! Harry is adorable, except when he's running off with yarn.
