A Surprise Package for Winnie

There was a package in the mailbox yesterday addressed to 'Winnie Puppy'.  Someone I have never met or heard from before found my pattern for knitting a tiny dog sweater and used it to make a sweater for a dog that she was in the process of adopting.  That adoption fell through, and the dog they ended up adopting was too large for the sweater, so she sent it to Winnie!



It is beautiful!  I am completely overwhelmed by the thought of such kindness.





The sweater fits Winnie perfectly!  





The sender's name is Becky and she has a blog named "Molly & Lucy".  Molly and Lucy are her new dogs, tiny seniors.  Becky's blog posts tell the story of how she adopted Lucy and Molly together last month from the Richmond Animal League, and how they are settling in and adapting to their new home and family.  The blog also has a page titled 'Consider an Older Dog' ... the advantages of adopting adult and/or senior dogs are many, and the rewards are beyond what I can describe.

Lucy and Molly


Thank you, Becky ... I will think of you and Molly and Lucy often ... especially when the weather gets colder and Winnie's new sweater will be put to very good use.

    1. Winnie was a very reluctant subject, I assure you. She wanted to be in my lap, as I sat on the floor, instead of standing still to have her photo taken. Notice that her tail is a blur.

    1. So true, Sandra! It's wonderful to get a reminder like this of just how many truly kind people there are out there. All of our dogs were adults when we adopted them ... Winnie is the first true senior. Seniors are my favorite. There are few things that are as beautiful to me as the grey face of a senior dog.

  4. Some people are just amazingly nice (and some of them are bloggers). You do give a lot out with your wonderful blog and it is so nice that you are getting such a treat in return. Winnie looks very smart!

    1. Awwwwww, now you're gonna make me blush.

      I am anxious for chilly weather so Winnie can wear her new sweater for longer than just a photo shoot. It looks so good on her! I am still overwhelmed by Becky's kindness in sending it to us.

    1. Thoughtful, indeed! Becky has a new post up on her blog, showing an in-process look at the new sweater that she's knitting for Molly. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

    1. I'm used to having packages in the mailbox, since our daughter does a lot of online shopping. Seeing one addressed to Winnie was a real surprise ... finding this beautiful sweater inside, and knowing the work and love that went into making it, made this a very, very special gift.
