Our little redhead friend, Maddie, broke her tail last week! Can you believe it? And she just has a nubbin' like me--actually, even less of a nubbin' than me--so there was really nothing they could do 'cept give her some good drugs and tell her to take it easy on the waggin' for awhile.
As a get well present, Mom knitted her a new ball. I'm thinking maybe I need to fake some sort of illness so that I can get a cool knitted present like that. The only thing Mom's knitted for me is this sweater. While I will grudgingly admit that it looks pretty good, it's still a sweater. Really Mom? A sweater!
C'mon...how 'bout some toys next time? I promise I won't destroy them too fast--I'll give them three minutes, at least!
(Note from Meryl: The pattern for the ball is here

by Anna Tillman, slightly modified to make it a little longer.)
