Lucy has been getting much, much less puppy-ish. She can be calm and sane and reasonable, as long as there are no cats around. She does the outside stuff outside and when inside, she is mostly trustworthy. So much so that this morning, when I thought she was chewing on an approved chew toy, I stopped paying much attention to what she was doing. But what she was doing was this:

Those black socks, lovingly knitted by yrs trly out of a delish skein of socks that rock in one of their raven colors, were my absolute favorites. I weep. I gnash. I'd rend my garments but, well, that's the cause of the weeping and gnashing in the first place.
In related news, it's a good thing that I've got half of another pair almost done, eh? They won't be as good or as perfect, mind. But one does what one can.
