Won't You Let Me Stay with You? It's Cold Outside!

My daughter goes on a horseback ride once a week, and this past Sunday, the girls came home in her best friend's truck with this:




The last time they did this, Caryn came home with a box filled with tissue paper and this little guy:



I looked and looked for pictures of him as a baby, but couldn't find them! Harmmph!

OK, so, her Dad and I are big pushover's and we now have one cat , two dogs, and a horse. I seriously think that is enough! We have made all the efforts we knew to find his rightful owner, but after the vets, the animal hospital, and the local newspaper, with no one calling us, we've decided his name is Jake. He is now getting his shots and next week we plan on having him spayed. He is most definately house broken, and he is a calming influence on Bailey, Nitro tolerates both dogs very well, for a cat, but he took to Jake very quickly.Bailey and Jake are pretty well adjusted, although Bailey thinks she is top dog.
We have alot of this going on outside:



Ok, on to knitting: this is the progress of my Elektra handspun vest:



This is my mindless knitting right now. And here is progress on the barn:
The white part is the sun roof - pretty cool huh?

Congratulations on a beautiful new doggie! I hope you enjoy the two dog dynamic. A little chasing is good for everyone,right? My guys are now able to share the futon in my office peacefully and nap throughout the day. Only took a year of adjustment...

It looks like Jake and Bailey are having a great time romping in the yard. I love how Elektra is knitting up. Cool skylight for the barn.
