wouldn't that be uncomfortable?!

See this sweet fuzzyface? Her name is Kodi. She's a Great Pyrenees and collie cross who came to us from a rescue place. It was a nice rescue place, but certainly not the kind of home you'd expect for a princess. Oh, yes, Kodi fancies herself a princess, for sure. Evidence of this would include the way she daintily plucks one morsel of food out of her bowl at a time and carries it to the middle of the living room to eat it, and then returns to pluck another morsel to eat in the living room, and so on. This would be after she waits patiently for us to add nibblins from our own meal to her regular food and then sighs pathetically when we don't. And how when it's raining outside and we open the door to let her out before bed, she stands in the doorway and looks up at us with those big beautiful brown eyes and bats her white eyelashes at us as if to say, "You want me to pee out there? But it's raining!" And then she trots back inside for the night.

Well, apparently the princess also thinks herself well suited for a doggy bed. Nope, no fleece or flannel for this special girl. She chose a lace doggy bed. A burgundy silk/wool handknit lace doggy bed...

One might think that the pins around Bella's circumference would dissuade a princess from choosing this bed of nails during the night, but no. The allure of silk and wool belonging to the humans was just too much for her to resist. And after a restful night, a nice doggy wake-up stretch was just too much for the lace to handle. See those criss-crossy pins? That's where I'll be repairing the lace later today.

Did I mention that this was a WHITE furball princess sleeping on BURGUNDY lace? So, yeah, there will also be lint brushing and rewashing and reblocking soon.

:::sigh::: Good thing she's so darn sweet. Posted by Picasa

Oh no, not Bella! It's so lovely. I hope the repairs go well but I can empathize. My Koda (cat) loves to sleep on my felted wools and knitted goods. She leaves her "stamp of approval" all over my knitted creations.

You are probably the best pet owner EVER!!! I don't think I've ever seen such patience and understanding. But, when one is dealing with a princess and looking into those gorgeous puppy eyes, I suppose that anger isn't really an option...
