Dog ... Thy name is Mud!

You may have met Mud before. He made his first appearance on this blog here.
I seriously doubt it will be his last!!

He seems to have developed a fondness for soft, fluffy things.

I don't know, maybe it's a breed thing. 
He is predominantly, if not completely, American Pit Bull Terrier and 
he does have a penchant for small, fluffy things.
All I know, he's going to drive me up a wall if he keeps finding yarn balls to do his thing with!

And it's not like he doesn't have any toys. 
I've spent a good chunk of change on toys, including soft, fluffy ones ... 
so why does he go after my yarn balls???

He's been known to go into the recycling and grab empty milk bottles (plastic ones) and egg cartons. 
The egg cartons don't bother me so much, but ingesting small fragments of chewed-up plastic milk bottles can cause a significant loss of spare change to the veterinarian.
Those small bits of plastic are not kind to the insides of a dog's intestines.
The resulting diarrhea is even more unkind to my nerves ... and the carpets!

I suppose I could say he has fabulous taste, 
choosing a relatively expensive lace weight alpaca yarn.
But he got to a cheap yarn ball too.
I'd teach him to crochet if he only had opposable thumbs.

Oh well ... life with Dog, it's rarely dull.

On another note, my progress with my "Snowflake Shawl"

Shawl start is beautiful ~ lovely colors and so delicately done ~ Mud is adorable but seems to be rather rambunctious to say the least~ he must have other toys, I am sure ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

That is a beautiful shawl with it's lovely colours and dreamy texture. I have opposable thumbs but it does me NO good when it comes to crochet or knitting; now freehand embroidery and simple stitchery? That I can do. Go figure!

Thank you so much for your kind comment Hilary, I am your newest follower.

They...meaning all pets - cats & dogs...only want to get into the stuff they know they aren't supposed to get into. Now, do you understand the logic? They sound an awfully lot like children, don't you agree? Glad to know your family in Hurricane Sandy's wake are okay. Natural disasters really disrupt life. The only thing I've ever been through was a flooding in '77 as a teen. My family faired well with no property damage that I'm aware of, but the clean up was a mess. I got terribly sick, though. I'd say it was brought on by the bacteria in the air and water. I developed a horrible ear & sinus infection which were compounded by the effects from a Typhoid shot. I was so miserable!
