Fun with yarn! Also, Toshi bags another rabbit.
One would hardly think that any dog as portly and low to the ground as Our Toshi would be such a successful hunter, but yesterday he got his first prey of the season. Argh. I had really been enjoying watching the young rabbits play around the house, but they've all cleared out since the carnage, and who can blame them? This brings Toshi's lifetime total up to four rabbits and two birds that I know of, and right now he's camped out on the back step, eyeballing a mother robin who's trying to convince one of her chicks to feed itself instead of pestering her. The chick is fully fledged and able to fly well enough to get to the top of the fence, so I don't think the robins are in any real danger, but still. As I said, argh.

As a break from the solid black rollneck I foolishly agreed to make for one of my Etsy customers (no, I don't really take custom orders . . . this just sort of happened without my quite realizing that I had agreed), I've been indulging in color every chance I get. Herewith:

You got your purply kind of color--

And your olivey kind of color--

And a whole assortment of pretty spring colors--

It always amazes me how the oldest and slowest of our three dogs is the one who catches the rabbits and chipmunks. I'm glad to say it doesn't happen often, but when it does my heart sinks to my toes. :/

On a lighter note--Shino looks so pretty in your new knit item! They all look lovely in fact!<3

Love the knits and the gorgeous dollies, as always! Your Cyndy is fitting right in :D

I invited a dear friend over to spend the night (so that we could stay up late talking and so that she could drink in the evening without worrying about driving home), but since she has a (sweetheart) pit bull that she couldn't leave alone for so long, I suggested that she bring Jill and her outdoor leash/stake over, so that she could hang out in my fully-fenced backyard . . . until Marie pointed out that since I've nicknamed my neighborhood "Bunnytopia," and since I'd be distraught if Jill took out one of my yardbunnies, it was probably a bad idea.

Still, here's hoping she can find a temporary dogsitter for the evening/morning so that we can have our girly sleepover!

I see you've put your new girl to work already. :)

Toshi isn't the first Dachshund that I've heard that likes rabbits. I think they are good at animals like that because they are low and long. The bird catching is actually harder since they are able to fly away pretty fast. I have read that it's even hard for cats to catch birds even though people think the opposite.

Finally having a few moments to look at LJ and saw your new guy. I had the magazine with the article and photos of him. If you don't have that I can try to scan it in the future once I find it. Hoping it shows his feet.

And thanks for tempting me again. I think my new address should be on Etsy now. Definitely sweater weather here!

For a second, I thought that you posted pics of his prey underneath the cut lol!
