Cooper visits the local yarn shop

I took Cooper to Golden Willow Natural Fibers (Rav link) yesterday. Saturday is a busy day at the shop. It's the official drop-in day. All other days are drop-in days at GW too, but they're not usually as busy as Saturdays. GW is the sort of shop that makes you want to hang out. The people are warm and friendly (kindred spirits, to quote Anne Shirley); the chairs and couch are comfy; tea and coffee are always available along with snacks of some sort; there are great knitting, spinning, and weaving tools and accessories; and the assortment of yarn and fiber is like crack cocaine to us bunch of addicts (if you know what I mean).

As you can see by the pics, there was no shortage of puppy socializing experts on hand:

This last photo is of Sharon. GW is her shop. 'Nuff said - stop by there if you have a chance. You won't regret it.

I think it's safe to say that Cooper was a hit.

*Don't forget to leave your comment for the blogiversary draw, if you haven't already done so. Cut-off time is midnight tonight.

That dog is so damn adorable, and the little cast darn near breaks my heart!
I wish the sheep were more sociable and cuddly :(

I love puppies! Cooper seems to love women, at least he knows where he gets snuggles and hugs. :o)
The cast doesn't seem to bother him.

What a wonderful pictures. Looks like you got a puppy with A+ temperament and personality.

I don't think they'd let a dog in my LYS, not even a cute puppy.

Cooper is just the sweetest thing. No wonder everyone wanted to get some Cooper love.
And what a great LYS! Wish I had one like that nearby.
