Another First: I Knit a Sock!

I just finished my first sock. The tricky bit was learning how to maneuver with double-pointed needles and not drop those teensy-weensy stitches. Next up — sock number two!

Consuelo the Media Princess

Well, Consuelo has made her first appearance at Austin Dog and Cat, with her boy friend Prince! Read all about our Saturday adventure — but please disregard her Girl’s casual attire.

Plus, AD&C, which is the brainchild of my friend Debi Martin (above),  is worth checking out, all of you dog/cat lovers!

#20: Meet the New Cavalier Girl!

Heeeerrrrrrre’s Consuelo!

La Senorita Principesa!

Loungette!

Supercutie!

She’s settled right in! It’s hard to believe she’s been in her forever home only a little over a month. I love this girl!

#19: So Long, Sweet Girl

This are the kind of first I really do not like: saying goodbye to my second beloved dog in 2009. Miss Patsy Clementine, she of the perpetually sunny disposition, made her transition on Tuesday, December 11. Patsy made it past ten, which was yet another miracle, considering her many health challenges, namely, Cushing’s disease, which caused the big problems over the last year.

As my vet, the wonderful Kathryn Van Winkle, once put it, “It’s just Patsy’s world, and we’re all passing through it.” That was the truth, but what a sweet world to share with a sweet, sweet girl.

I shall miss her championship-level snoring (check out her video here), the way she loved to cuddle with any type of soft surrounding, her “Feed Me” shuffle dance. But most of all, I shall miss my own Miss Congeniality.

It’s oddly comforting to know that her brother, ThunderDog, and cousins Lily, Bear, and Pearl and friend Felix among many others are all there to greet her.

May she and ThunderDog be chomping down Breath Busters in Doggie Heaven! And snore REALLY loud, Miss P Bug, so I can still hear you.

Back at It

Okay, I’ve been away from this here blog long enough. I haven’t come up with a clever post, so let’s try to ease back in. I’m still sad about losing ThunderDog, but Patsy Clementine is in fine form.

Right now, I’m getting ready to head to New York for Book Expo, right after the Writers’ League benefit with Roy Blount Jr. And I’m trying to get my hands on a copy of the June issue of Austin Monthlyit’s all about the Austin literary scene, and I’m IN IT! Now, there’s another first!

Oh yeah, and I need to write about the trip to Wimberley (what I can write for public consumption), Flight of the Conchords, James Otto, Carol’s visit, and the Big Man (as in Clarence Clemons)!

To be continued…
