Bella is doing her best at being a livestock guard dog these days. No word yet on Dolly, but I got a phone call today there was an ad on Craigslist about a big white fluffy dog. I emailed the craigslist address and we went to where the dog had been seen.
We didn't see any white dogs but talked to a Sheriff and possibly he can pass the word on Dolly. When I got home there was an email response from the person that put the ad in. She said a large white dog had walked through their back yard today but she was unable to catch her. After sending her pictures she thought it had been Dolly!
Tomorrow we will go back up there and hang flyers on everything we can with Dolly's picture on it. Hopefully someone will remember seeing her and give us a call.
Our spinning group is still going. We are meeting twice a month at the Community Center. Had a call from someome today that may join our group. Last Saturday we went to the spin-in that is a once a year event. Its so much fun to see other spinners and weavers, knitters and of course the vendors who have all the 'must have' things for this wonderful art.
I'm currently spinning a blend of black and brown alpaca from my own herd. Its mostly black with brown highlights and is being spun thick and thin in a somewhat modified woolen type yarn. Its dark and rich looking, sightly fuzzy and very interesting. It looks to me like mink or something rich. Pix when I get a chance.
