For a very small dog. Think chihuahua.
Jake’s head might fit on it, but nothing else.
Unfortunately, the rug is starting to get too big to fit in my knitting bag. It is also getting too warm to lay on my lap while knitting.
Tonight I took it to my neighbor’s house only to have Elly pull the live stitches off the needles. Then, she proceeded to stab the needles into the rug, informing me that she was knitting and helping me. It was very cute. But, as you can guess, not a lot of knitting takes place when she is around.
Thus lately, I have only worked on it while at McDonald’s thanks to Elly being preoccupied and to the AC keeping me cool.

Before the recent cold snap hit, there was enough warm weather to pull out the new sprinkler.
With 80′s predicted for at least two days this week, rest assured that the sprinkler will get some more love.
Though if Elly gets her way, “Cookie Monster” will finally be blown up. She hasn’t played in it for about 9 months, but darned if she hasn’t forgotten.
Gahh, look at the chub on her! So cute! Not even a year has passed, but all that baby fat is gone.
It all went to her height. My little girl is getting tall.
No doubt she’ll pass me in a few short years.

A few months ago, Elly had informed me that she wanted a pet horse. As stubborn as my “little mule” is, she was not dissuaded by my excuses of why we couldn’t have a pet horse. Thus, it came as no surprise that the first animal Elly wanted to ride at the Philadelphia Zoo was a pony.
It didn’t matter that she couldn’t reach the stirrups. It didn’t matter that the staff woman held the reins for her. It didn’t even matter that she only got to walk slowly around in a big circle.
She was thrilled.
I held my breath after thinking she would ask again for a horse of her own. Thankfully, the zoo was filled with so many other animals to look at and places to run around that I was saved.
Of course, she did ask to ride the ponies again. As I’m sure she will ask every time we visit the zoo now.
