Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

I am doing a Happy dance right now!

I got a Direct Message from a friend on Twitter regarding what was thought was an 8 month old Dachshund puppy late Monday night. We spent time trying to get the information and I finally spoke to the owner lastnight. He was still unsure about handing him over to Alberta Dachshund Rescue (ADR) even though he thought is was probably best.

I and two others from ADR spoke with him and he decided to give him up to ADR, knowing this was the best for him. It turns out the puppy was only 14 wks old and was dealing with 2 children, one 18 months and one that was older and was special needs.

It really dogs take patience. determination and love to deal with this breed. They are a very tenacious and head strong breed. It is a difficult breed to train but so rewarding if you have the time to do the work :D

So here is Banger....isn't he adorable!


 So this is why ADR asks for an application to be filled out even if we don't have a dog for you. This way when a dog comes in he or she can be placed ASAP.

The family that got him has been waiting over a year and a half for another dog. They are so happy to have this gorgeous little one :)
