Ta Da!

Here's Pocus sporting his new 'do. The weather is beautiful today (-10C, 14F) with no wind. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. I guess the birds survived the cold weather after all.

Harrison is digging for some enticing smell under the snow.

Austin squinting into the sun.

And Robbie who, of course, I can never photograph well as he's too busy. Here he is playing one of his favorite games, Kill The Foot.

Obligatory knitting content is a pic of the latest sock to go on the needles, Monkey sock pattern from Knitty on 2.0mm KnitPicks circs in Lisa Souza Sock!, colorway Delft.

I can't believe you have 4 dogs, Susan! Hence the title of your blog, I guess. Pocus looks adorable.

I love your Monkey socks! I've been thinking of buying a hank of the Delft but have hesitated because I wasn't sure I'd like all the white. I love it! Guess where I'm heading next? LOL Happy blogiversary!!!

Your dogs are beautiful....Pocus is just way tooo cute. I'm a dog lover myself. My Cocker Spaniel (shadow) and toy Poodle (Zeus) think they are furry humans. I've added you to my blogroll. I haven't tried the monkey sock yet. I've joined a Monkey KAL so I will be starting them soon. :-)

I thought pocus was cute all marshmallowy! How are the socks knitting up with the delft yarn? The pattern looks interesting.

Hocus Pocus is adorable. He reminds me of my miniature poodle when her hair is a bit long, as I let it grow during the coldest part of our Winter too.

The collies are gorgeous. I grew up with collies. My Mother bred them for a while. My favorite was a big Tri- named Duke. But we had Sable and Blue Merle too. Yours are all totally beautiful.

Happy blog anny.

Susan - the dogs are beautiful. I dont get much fur from my Lab, but have bags and bags of undercoat from Lucy, my tricolor collie. I have started to spin it and intend to weave a blanket with it. From what I could see, Robbie looks a lot like my Lucy.
