Moe Speaks: Even With a Broken Tail, Our Little Redhead Friend Got the Better End of the Deal

IMG_4115

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, and the sweater is Warm and Wooly from Doggy Knits by Anna Tillman, slightly modified to make it a little longer.)
