Can spring be far away?

Finished Clue 2 of Goddess Knits Mystery Shawl 2008 (#7). Am knitting this in Madil Kid Seta in steel grey. A very interesting knit:


Antidote to the whiteness and greyness:

Arthur, our Golden Retriever is home again to recover from a very serious illness. He developed pneumonia and was extremely ill but is now very much on the mend and gathering strength every day.

He has spent the better part of 3 weeks lying on this rug (forgive its filth please, I haven't had the heart to move him in order to get the vacuum on it). You can see some of the many shaved bits on him where cardiac monitors, ultra sounds and IVs were placed.

He actually broke into a trot yesterday during his walk - a heart gladdening sight!

He is 12 and very much my son's dog. When DS moved into his own place, Arthur went with him but there are stairs so until he is stronger he is back here with me.

Big foot!

Good luck with Arthur. Mine was 12 and is just gone.

Oh poor Arthur- Bear (the big giant poodle) sends him three licks and one very personal sniff, to help him on his way-
