I little while ago I gifted an afghan to my cousin (I've just realized I never blogged it because I was waiting until after I gifted it to her, so I'll have to do that), and she has since told me that her son (and her dog) keep stealing it on her. To prevent fighting over the blanket, I decided to make him his own. I may even go so far as to make one for the dog. We'll see.
Way, way back in February, while I was on my crochet cruise my friend (and coworker), Brigitte, and her family, looked after Truffles for me. Now, this was a big deal, because although her family had cats in the past, they had never had a dog in the house and weren't sure what to expect. Add to that the fact that he has the Yorkie stubbornness against being completely house trained, and I wasn't sure how things would go. Happily, he did just fine, and minded his manners while I was gone.
