In a weak moment I got another puppy. This time she's a tiny little Russell Terrier, which are smaller versions of the Jack Russell Terrier. The cat is bigger than she is. As you can see from the picture, Nellie isn't quite sure what to do with her. I named her Dottie, she has one brown dot on her white back. Since my dairy goat Dottie is deceased for two years now, I figured I could recycle the name. RT Dottie is one feisty little girl! She has a temper on her. Reggie the cat and her play together, wrestling and rolling around on the floor. Reggie either bit or clawed her a little too hard today and she went right after him, growling and biting. They got into a fight that I had to break up! Silly kids. :-)
There are only 5 pregnant does out there this year. It will be one of the smallest kid crops I've ever had. They aren't due till April and May.
I've been busy spinning and crocheting lately. Almost done with all the cashmere that was left, which wasn't very much, actually. Kits with patterns and the yarn to make them will be coming up soon. I've designed a couple of patterns that can either be a scarf or a cowl. I'm also going to have some wrist warmers, too. I got a bit behind with it all, spending three days shoveling and plowing out the place from the last storm. Hope this one doesn't drop as much snow! I've barely recovered from the last one! One thing about it, living up here I sure don't need to belong to a gym to get a good work-out. ☺
I hope everyone has a wonderful, spectacular 2015!
