And grown she has. What was once a mere 3.6 pounds
has now topped 8 pounds! She's also grown into her big girl collar. An Up Country creation with Jack Russell Terriers on it. How perfect!
A gargantuan, hardly, but she sure is fit. Although her white coat hides it well (and the last couple of weeks have not seen huge growth spurts),she's been beefing up and gaining muscle mass and tone.
When you pick Stella up you know at once this is a dog of substance with great ears. I would be remiss if I didn't add that even with those large ears, her hearing is selective, like most terriers ( and people too). She hears what she chooses to hear.
In fiber news, the weaving goes on slowly with the pillow case warp. I tweaked my neck and shoulder out Tuesday and spent most of it and all of Wednesday resting it. Better now, but throwing a shuttle was out of the question. The Julia's prayer flag warp has been threaded and is awaiting sleying. I should have spent my lay up time writing on silk, but I shamelessly napped instead. I'm hoping to give the Harrisville Warping Reel it's maiden warp this weekend.
On farm news, no bear, but I did surprise the heck out of a raccoon in the barn. He surprised me also and it was a tie as to who jumped higher. I will say I never knew raccoons could run so fast. It made Dennett's walk being able to "track" the coon well after the fact though. If it brings joy to Dennett it brings joy to me had we had a grand time following the trail for a little bit.
The Subaru comes home this morning...thank god! Ride anyone?
