We joined the Chester Ave Dog Park http://chesteravenuedogpark.com/ in February. We have really been enjoying our romps and meeting new friends (furry and human). Despite Finn tipping the scales at 67lbs, he has been "attacked" a few times by his nemesis, Ella, a yellow lab with the longest legs I've ever seen. On the positive side, Maggie has transformed from a nervous nelly to a confident, interested and still a bit nervous lady. She is very popular at the dog park, especially with her friend Lou, the "Jug" (Jack Russell/Pug). Gus just bides his visits to the park rolling in the dirt and making himself filthy.
Gus and Finn continue to do their therapy dog work with me. We branched out recently and did a program at CHOP for kids with CP and autism spectrum disorders. We also visited a nursing home! The scope and range of need at these different settings in remarkable...and everytime, the dog brings out the person.
I've been knitting and sewing and quilting...perhaps the blog should be called "Crafty Delicious?"
Well the quilting is brand new...Trish and I are taking "private" lessons with Ilana at Spool. We are making Amy Butler's "Brick Path Quilt"
I think the actual product is going to end up being about 12 squares by 12 squares. Trish and I will be working on final layouts at my office next Monday, as neither of us has enough space to make the whole thing come to life in our homes.
