"My name is No-No-Bad-Dog, what's yours?"

Two ski meets in two days makes for some car knitting time.

The Lopi Sweater has sleeves attached, and I've begun the colorwork in the yoke.

Not very much left! For pure speed satisfaction, bulky Lopi yarn is the best!

Little dog Chip had been in his kennel so much lately. All day while we were at work, and then all evening when we were at ski meets.

We felt badly for him, so we dog-proofed the house (or so we thought) and let him have the run of the house with the big dog today.

Bad choice.

Little bugger went in my knitting basket, pulled out the roll of double points. He chewed up the 0s, 1s and 4s. How he unrolled it is a mystery. It was deep in my knitting basket, too! He had to dig to get it out.

He pulled out a spindle and chewed on the end. Lucky for him, it was not one of my favorites!

There were pens, my measuring tape, a pencil sharpener, and my little baggy of yarn scraps in his "chewed on" pile. GotH got it cleaned up before I arrived home. Luckily for the little dog, there was no skiing today. I'd have had to kill him!

Guess he'll live in his kennel forever.

I don't know what the big dog was doing. Egging him on, perhaps?

Reminds me of the time Porter chewed up my:

1. New Cell Phone
2. New leather armed glasses
3. Heirloom quilt
4. Antique foot stool
5. Lattice on deck
6. baseboards (we were laying a wood floor)
7. All vegetables (sans tomatoes) in the garden
8. Son's toys (4 jenga pieces)

He wasn't around long enough to 'build his pallet' to my knitting items.

I totally understand what you're going through.

Heh - I think his brother Gross Dog lives at my house!

I can laugh but it wasn't my dpn's on the menu.

Hope he doesn't get sick from all the "exotic foods."
