Dogs on Thursday & SOTSii Update

In the first photo, this is the day Gracie came home from the hospital, she still had a lot of fluid in her belly.

In the next photo, a few weeks ago, it was better, but not there yet.

The next photo shows the incredible weight loss and muscle wasting from the prednisone. Poor baby.

And, the last photo is from Gracie's birthday last week. She's starting to gain weight in the right places. She's eating fine and it's coming out the other end fine too (gross, I know, but really important).

She loves to have her photo taken, she's very used to it. It's funny, actually.

This morning she's had a lot of energy and is looking CUTE!

And now for the SOTSii update.

I have finished about 2/3 of hint 3. Last night I spent a couple of hours tinking the left side which looked NOTHING like the right side. Since the stole design is all about symmetry I buckled down. I am very very pleased with my newly developing tinking skills.

So, this morning I have about an hour to knit and I hope to complete hint three. Hooray!


  1. Gracie looks so much happier now! What a Diva!

    The stole looks great so far! I love the new word too!

  2. Ella wants Gracie to know that she's glad everything's going okay! 'Woof, whine, whine, gurgle' (yes, Ella gurgles, that's the only way I can describe it). :)

  3. Yay Gracie! Looking Good! You Go Girl!
