ArtLady,

I've been wanting to comment on Blue...he's so adorable!! I'm glad you posted all of these pictures. All of your dogs are beautiful. Besides being a wonderful knitter, you are quite the photographer too!

I have a catahoula hound (mix), and two rat terriers. They like to help me knit and crochet too. My cats fill in when the dogs are busy. They especially like to help on the oddball pet snuggles. (note to self: make some for your own critters)

Ours are all spayed and neutered too.

Thanks for sharing!

Yup, ya gotta love dogs, in good times and bad times....meaning...my sliding glass doors are NEVER squeaky clean! Always some sort of slobber on them! Oy!

Our yard is a wreck half the time! Our deck has to be re-stained more often than not! Our 6' cedar fence is patched and re-patched. It's hard to keep hounds IN. They're escape artists!bAnd to make matters worse...'possums, racoons and an occasional rat like to walk the top of the fence! That drives the hounds insane. They manage to get ole Charlie rollin' too! When they've been boxed up for the night, Charlie takes over for them.

You have to box up the hounds at night, or you and the neighbors would never sleep!

We keep them in those airline approved crates at night, all covered up so they can't peer out the window and see wassup!

Hounds think they are Shih Tzus and Llasa Apsos!
You'll love this!

Here is a Shih Tzu, snug in her nest! (it was chilly...so I brought her little nest outside where I knit when we are in the mountains)

KATIE


But if she turns her back...A HOUND DOG takes over the Shih Tzu nest!

DANI


And BLUE, too! Dani moved...Blue took over!


This has got to be common to the breed!

The following two dogs are now deceased. EMILY, my little Llasa Apso, snug in her nest:


But, later...in the camper at night...look who has taken over the Llasa Apso nest! Yes, Abbey, the HOUND DOG! (BTW, she is a female from the same mother and father as Dani, but several years later)

ABBEY, in the Llasa Apso nest...EMILY, the Llasa Apso, on the floor!


How in the WORLD can a 60# HOUND DOG coil herself up into a nest the size of a Llasa Apso???

Where there is a will, there is a way...that's what they say...and I'm a believer!

Artlady, I so enjoyed your photos of your beautiful dogs and your mountain retreat. Thank you for sharing them. I have six retired sled dogs (since I am retired from it) from ten to fifteen and an elderly cat. You definitely are never alone without your dogs - mine don't show the interest in my knitting yours do but the cat sometimes gets involved. I had an Aussie for fifteen years who died last year and was my constant companion.

My "mixed terrier" Shiloh was supposed to be 20 lbs! Ha!! Had her to the vet last wk. and she weighs 46 lbs!! Since I weigh 94, she DRAGS me everywhere!! Almost pulled me to the ground last week, really scary. Must get her a trainer so I can control her. She's only 7 mos old and still in the "puppy" stage!! I don't see how you walk yours. Any secrets, besides have a lot of acreage as you have!! LOL
