Mangled Yarn

I think the 365 Dogs a Year calendar is mocking me! Last night I had a similar instance, except it was with (the faint hearted knitters should stop reading here)... a hank of Cherry Tree Hill foxy lady sock yarn... fingering weight. Yes, the stringy mess yarn was given back... actually it was left in an almost unidentifiable pile on the living room floor, nice and full of dog hair too, obviously from a bored dog, or four... Lesson Learned... do not leave tasty, yummy yarns sitting on the coffee table while you dare to ignore a dog go in the other room for 5 minutes. I'm not sure who the culprit is, but Sophie was caught red-pawed with the tag in her mouth... yarn had already been mangled. I've left WIP's and yarn sitting on the coffee table before, but I think the mistake last night was having just returned home and having 4 obnoxious attention-deprived dogs... ugh. At least it wasn't the whole bag of SWTC Bamboo... thankfully! (if anyone has hints on how to rescue such tangled messes without ripping your own hair out, please share...)

I have had cats that loved and hauled yarn around the house, chewed it in half. But, I have never had a dog with a yarn fetish
;0)

Oh not the Cherry Tree Hill!
That is up there with, when the $2.00 fish eats the $10.00 dollar fish!
Well really I think it means your dogs are smart and know good taste, err, uh, when they taste it.

Hmmmm, looks like a knit and felted scarf is in order, you can hide the knots from the cutting you may have to do and...dog hari? What dog hair?

I'm certain that the lovely Sophie was trying to get it away from one of her siblings and that's how she ended up with the label in her mouth. She is too sweet to participate in such a crime against yarn. :)

Ugh! But how can one be made with those big brown eyes staring at you.

I am VERY lucky... I can leave yarn anywhere and then leave for hours and they wont even think of touching it :-)

That's one of the risks of having dogs, but I know you (and I) would choose our pups over our yarn any day!
