Meet Dixie Belle

We took a few days but managed to come up with a name for our new puppy that everyone not only likes but that also suits her very well. Originally from Virginia, she is the perfect Dixie Belle, a southern pup who will hopefully mind her manners as she grows up!

Don't be fooled by the sweetness

The past month has been an adjustment for everyone having a puppy afoot. My hours are suddenly really full and there is seldom a dull moment. The sweetest part of this lovable ball of energy is her ability to sleep 8 hours and not have any accidents during the night! For that alone, I love her!

She is a delight but don’t let her cuteness factor fool you…she has earned the nickname Cujo for her antics!

I have managed only a little knitting, finishing up the second baby tunic. (Details here and here.)

and so far Dixie has shown an interest in yarn but has not been given the opportunity to play with it.  That is, if you don’t count beyond running off with the big ball with me trailing behind, project attached.

But I’ll be keeping a careful watch and protecting my string like no other!  You hear that Dixie? I’m talking to you!

I do have a few things on the needles and more knitting to reveal.  Check back in tomorrow!

Have a great week! Feel free to share any puppy tips, it’s been a while and I am rusty…

Happy May Day!
