Little Bliss is our resident tricolor Cavalier. She is a quiet girl who has done very well in the show ring. I have to admit, that I was very hesitant in breeding her, as she is so little, but her breeder assured me that Bliss's mom, who is equally as small in size as Bliss is, whelped 5 puppies without any problems.
As you can see from the xray (and for those who can't I added some arrows....LOL), there are 4 babies. In this picture of Bliss,she is looking very svelte, however, now she is looking as though she may have swallowed a watermelon. Being as little as she is, there is no place to hide those babies. If you look at her, you would swear she was having an entire football team instead of just 4 wee pups.
B is also for Bathing.........
Friday is usually reserved for bathing dogs. Kali being full of mischief is usually one who needs a bath. We are experiencing some really strange weather up here in the mountains. The temps have been ranging in the 40's and 50's! Needless to say, the dog yard is getting soupy....YUK.....MUD! Thankfully Cavaliers are small enough just to toss in the sink. (You can see that I still haven't made up my mind about tiles for the backsplash.....too many choices out there!)
B is for the "Beauty" after the Bath....
Even though he has the
coat of a mature dog, he is still fairly
young at 9 mos of age and does not always have the best aim out in the dog yard...LOL. Trust me, we all are much happier that he enjoys his baths ;-). This little dog is truly the sweetest dog that I have ever owned. Such a gentle spirit this boy posses.
B is for" Big Cookies" and "Bunny Balls"!
I so enjoy reading bloggers who also like to cook. One of my favorites is Yarnstorm. Jane always has THE most tempting pictures. I have decided to try and get back in touch with that domestic side that has been hiding. (just ask my hubby....hehe)
I picked up this cookbook at the library this week and I LOVE it. I may have to even bite the bullet and purchase a copy. Watch out Martha!
The cauldron as my DH likes to call it, has been pretty busy this week. As I will be a vendor as the NETA Spa weekend in February, the dyepot and carder have been working in over-drive. I am just praying that I can get enough of this stuff dyed and ready for the weekend.....eekk.
These lovely little balls are on their way to one of my favorite bloggers.......Happy Spinning!
And Finally....."B" is for "Big Moon"....
Sandy, this one is for you ;-)
January's full moon is the "Wolf Moon"
Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January's full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.
Sheesh........I guess B was a "busy" letter for me!
