Baddest. Dog. EVER.

Take a good long look at this picture before continuing... Note how sweet and innocent Mr. Yellow Dog looks - like he would never harm a fly...he lives in peace with all creature bigs and small. Heck, he even shares his bed with a cat... This dog looks just about perfect.

Now I submit to you Baddest Dog Ever Exhibit A. Well, it's the only exhibit actually but CHECK THIS OUT!!

Can you believe this cause I can't?? For 5 years, we have lived like slobs, littering socks on the floor with nary a care and they've been left untouched. Until now...but the part that is really bothering me is why this sock? There are plenty of ordinary store bought socks laying around for the taking - why THIS sock? His only saving grace is that he didn't go through the cable. I think i can fix this - knit up a new ribbed cuff, cut off this mess and somehow kitchener it together. Please someone, tell me I can fix this...

With the loss of this sock and a toe sticking through on another pair, I cast on a new pair of plain ole boring grey ribbed ones for Brad. This is my new TV knitting...about another inch or so til I turn the heel.

And lest you think I'm completely selfless, I've got a little something completely marvelous on the needles for myself...

I saw this DGS Confetti at the yarn store on Friday and it absolutely screamed "Jaywalker!"

Otis! Bad dog! Bad, bad dog! That is a high crime indeed. But he does look so innocent, with that fuzzy-wuzzy snoot and his schmooppy puppy eyes...

Ahem. I mean, BAD DOG! BAD, BAD DOG!

At least it's fixable. And the Jaywalkers look great. Love the stripes!

He chose that sock because it's so nice and cozy. My dog ate a hole in my afghan once. Dogs are mysterious. I hope you can fix it easily.

You know, it seems to have been some kind of worldwide pet conspiracy to see how many of them can make it onto the blogs today. every other blog (including mine) seems to have an animal related story on it :-)
Love those jaywalkers

I love the Jaywalkers!! Such awesome colors!! I just got a stash of sock yarn from knitpicks today and I'm thinking about tackling a pair of jaywalkers for ME!! Oh Otis.........tsk tsk. Never mess with hand knit stuff. NEVER. It's a big nono. NO NO. Is there anyway you could kinda darn the sock? Is that the right word? Either way I hope you can fix them. I'm making a pair of these as a christmas gift and my 2yr old daughter lost one of the needles on me this morning!! I dont have anymore in that size!! What am I going to do?? Later!!

I have a naughty sock nibbler myself and I have been meticulous about keeping my hand knits away from him... so far so good. I really feel your pain though.
Are those jay walkers stripes again? I love them, but I don't know if I have the patience for the stripes.

Hi from Austria! Oops - who would have thought, looking at his innocent eyes, that he could do such a thing? He's a true sock nibbler, isn't he? But hey, you'll sure be able to fix this, I'll bet!

I love how your Jaywalkers are getting along, looking forward to seeig the pics of the finished ones!

I think you are missing the point - he's a dog with good taste. Why go for an easy to knit sock in stocking stitch when you can get your teeth into some cabled socks?? Obvious really ;)
