I had my day planned. I would feed the chickens and goats, take my run with Scout, then feed her when she was quiet. I had already hung out the clothes to dry, and straightened up a bit inside. I had planned to go straight to work re-threading the white 12/3 cotton warp that is on the little Leclerc. I wanted to take out the center 2 motifs and just have a twill in the center of the towel, and a motif in each corner.
That is not exactly how my day went. You see, I found something while Scout and I were running this morning, or I suppose I should say he found us!
He is 7 to 9 months old, and sooo skinny! He has ribs showing! There is a collar (too small), but no tags, I took him in to the vet to see if he has a microchip, he doesn't. ( I had him dewormed while we were there!) I have called the area vets to see if he has been reported missing, so far nothing.
He is a Great Pyrenees, but so thin he doesn't seem it! I don't want to put him in with Scout cause she is just too dominant, so I fenced off a section of the goat pen for him. We did spend about an hour with the goats, and unlike Scout, he behaved himself wonderfully! No chasing of goats or chickens! I am going to put a notice on Craigslist for the owner, but I don't expect to find one. In the mean time we will fatten him up, and see if we can place him with some nice folks, that just need what is going to be a gigantic dog.
I did get to that threading late in the afternoon, I hope to be weaving samples on Friday so that I will have something to post over on Loomy Tunes!
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
