Skipping a Sock Summit soliloquy to mention two knitting (and real-life!) friends and their canine companions and a knitter’s daughter’s kitty.
Tuck, an adorable French Bulldog that belongs to Dr. Mel, aka Cabezalana is facing huge medical bills. He’s just a little guy with an adorable face (did you look at those toofs?) and you can help out by buying Tuck swag at Zazzle. (I bought two mugs, because, in addition to Janie Sparkles and Mr. Man, I wouldn’t mind waking up to Tuck’s mug on my mug in the morning.)
The other news is the tragic loss of Harriet, Yarn-a-go-go’s furry friend. As Rachael puts it,
There are pets that we cuddle and love, and then there are the Truly-Special Where-Did-You-Come-From-You-Crazy-Wonderful-Thing-You animals.
Lastly, one of my first internet friends (from USENET and and UNIX rave chatrooms in 1992), Leah also had to put her cat named Lint down.
Sorry for the heavy post. Life has its up’s and down’s.
Let’s create some more up’splease go show ’em both your love… and love the four-footed friends in your life!
