Crazy as a Loom

Loving the camera.

On my way to the studio this morning, I stopped at the hardware store for some wire.
I was surprised to see a border collie wandering down the aisle. Then another. They were so friendly, and so handsome, I got my camera from the car.
Their owner very graciously allowed me to photograph them.

Then he asked them to show me a little trick. He didn't have biscuits so he used pennies.
Said he had biscuits in the truck.

I have to say that this hardware store has gained points in my estimation, just because they let these two, who are father and son I might add, roam around their store.

Class act.
I got a load of stuff done, and I finally got the third shawl done on the Macomber. So I unwound them, and took them home to tie fringe.
My mother volunteered to model.
Words are unnecessary.

All our customers bring their dogs to the hardware store where I work. we even keep a box of cookies for the dogs. All the dogs know where to go for their cookies. It's their first stop...always. None of them do tricks for us, but they make our days go better!
So happy for you that your Looper Loomsare at Halcyon now...what fun!
Your mom is a kisk! I don't know her, but I love her!

Love these shawls... and look how her face just lights up while modeling them. She's a sweetheart.

I love walking into any store that has a dog that spends it's days there. Always feels so homey to me.
