Buddha had an inquiring look when I came to the back door the other day. Boy, his coat is really growing back fast. He will really look like a Chow before long. If I were so inclined, I could really spin some interesting dog hair yarn with which to knit. I am now contemplating Norwegian… Continue reading Did You Say “Bone-bone”?
