Lorelai and I bought a new toy for Jackson on Friday - it's a long dog, with a rope middle. Friday night he spent 2 hours working on destuffing the tail end (successful!). This morning, he got the rest of the stuffing out of the head. Makes me think of that petsmart commercial with the dachshund and his bobo. That's clever (toy was basically the same shape / size as the dog) but not really true - dachshunds like to destuff and then they are done. Lorelai is entertained by the fluff every where. Luckily she hasn't tried to mimic Jackson (yet).
I knit. A lot. I like to make functional things and silly things, and frequently put these items on my mini-dachshund. When I am not knitting or crocheting I am thinking about these things for my clients, as I am an account manager doing social media marketing for yarn companies, yarn shops and designers. It is a great job that I enjoy and I feel incredibly lucky to have. I am able to work from home and enjoy my two children.
