Sprout heads & attack of the Wookie dog

A while back Master D and I made some sprout heads – here they are looking happy in their finery.

And then along came a Wookie dog who wanted to glare, who wanted to bark, but most of all wanted to attack!

So, it’s taken us all a while to recover and try again. We got the stockings back out and added seed, before putting in seed raising soil and tying the ends.

For one stocking we had to add a fabric ‘wick’ to help draw the water up since new stockings seem to be water repellant (who knew!). Master D added eyes and mouths. One of them apparently needed two mouths 😉

So this time the sprout heads are living out of reach of the Wookie dog, although I have noticed some glaring and barking going on…

After one week
2 weeks! Don’t they look great!

Warm wishes, Kelly

This is us #1: Wookie

Since I’m new to this blogging thing, I thought some introductions to my family might be a good starting place…. beginning with the elusive Wookie dog. Wookie, otherwise known as The Wook, is jet black and hard to capture well in photos (some ok attempts shown below).

He is a monkey dog, in nature and name – literally, he is an affenpinscher which I am told means monkey terrier in German.
Working out the car seat with Master D

Wookie keeps us company, informed of movements in the street (seriously, I know when anyone moves!) and occasionally digs in one spot in my garden. When I happen to complain about the digging, my three year old Master D tells me ‘…but that’s what dogs do mum’ in a very matter-of-fact way. 

On his bed, oops, I mean my bed

Wookie has some other somewhat odd habits, including chewing bones on my feet (luckily the bones have been well chewed and so there are no meat remnants).

Well that might do for a start 🙂

Thanks for reading, Kelly
