On Sunday, I took advantage of the beautiful weather and lovely parks in our new neighborhood by having a knitting date with Lisa. Of course, Oliver was invited along for company and inspiration. No sooner had we settled onto our quilt beneath a shade tree than we were attacked by pugs! One moment the air was still but for the sound of needles clicking together. The next moment came the deafening roar of multiple pugs approaching. My belief is that the hot, tired creatures spotted Oliver and figured we'd give two more weary pugs refuge. As you can see from the pictures below, Chino and Sweetness made themselves right at home on our quilt and on top of our knitting. Oliver made himself right at home trying to get fresh with Chino. I have to admit that the pugophile in me was warmed by the sight of Chino munching contentedly on Lisa's yarn. It seems that almost any trespass is forgiveable when committed by a pug. In any case, I almost reached nirvana on Sunday - knitting, friends, and a flock of squirming, happy pugs. It doesn't get much better than that!
