Scoutie Rose left a pretty big hole in our lives when she left us prematurely in October. While you can never replace a beloved dog, in due time you can love another! This little doll is Purl, a four-month old Lab mix who crossed the border in TJ to find a better life in the States. She came to the right place! Initially, I entertained thoughts of her being a shop dog. Oh, how lovely to have that little warm heart beat at my feet while at the Grove. But alas, I am no trainer and she is distractingly cute. My fantasy lasted about 2 weeks and then it became clear, she was on the move and no more liked being tied to the winding table than I would! She does love yarn. And Fabric. And just about anything she can get her puppy teeth on. That turns out to be a bit of a problem. But we're working on "drop it!". Her fur is as soft as roving. And I just wish all my knitters who like dogs could feel her downy coat!
