Boomer and The Big-Ass Sweater

Once upon a time there was a little Pug named Boomer who's owner passed away leaving him in need of a place to stay. He went on a journey across the state with only the collar on his neck and a few papers...and found a new home with Rena, Wes and Winston...

Last night when Grammie went to Rena's for knitting she was enthusiastically greeted by her new grand-dog. Boomer is adorable (don't you love his teeth?) and loves to cuddle. He could stand to gain a pound, nothing that a few extra treats won't take care of, and needs a winter coat for going outside in the cold weather. He has a little problem with jumping on folks and likes to "box" Winston but we're sure he'll get over this deviant behavior pretty quickly. Once he realizes that Winston is the king of the house.

Boomer loves his Grammie's slippers...

...he took a bit of a nap on them while Grammie knitted on The Big-Ass Sweater. A sweater that, believe it or not, is actually growing these days. pics later in this post


Boomer and Winston got along pretty well all evening until it was time for Grammie to leave. When she picked Winston up to give him his good bye kiss, Boomer wanted "up" too and Winston was not havin it!

When Grammie arrived back at Chez B Max & Sam became stuck to her pant-leg like glue. You know they were conjuring up all kinds of crazy images about what they were smelling on Grammie's clothes.

Dogs are so funny.

Now, when Boomer comes to visit Chez B, maybe they'll recognize the smell of him and let him in the door, hahaha!

The End

And in the world of knitting...here's the progress on The Big-Ass Sweater...


4 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca down, 10 more to go, hahaha!








And this just in...sadly, Ricardo Montalban passed away today...I don't know which comes to mind first, Fantasy Island or the Chrysler commercials about Corinthian Leather. May he rest in peace...
