Leeloo Videos and a few photos

We have this soccer ball toy that Norbert never really got into, so it languished in the toy bin. I washed all the toys a few weeks ago and remembered the ball. I needed something to distract Leeloo from attacking my feet, so pulled out the soccer ball and was kicking it around the back yard. I think its funny how she runs to and usually flips over the ball to get it. It took her a few times to figure out how to grab the ball and bring it to me. Its good for laughs and since she's making me laugh, that's great. She's much better about bringing the ball back than Norbert. Doesn't do it all the time, but that's fine. We both get exercise going around the yard that way. Leeloo and her soccer ball:

I mentioned on Facebook that Leeloo's little 'roo-roo-roo' bark always brings a smile to my face. I also usually laugh and roo-roo back at her. Tonight she was playing with Brandon on the couch, lighting is a little low, sorry about that. It's also a little long at over three minutes, so I'm going to include a link to it. That way if you don't want to, you don't have to watch it.

While I was in class on Saturday, Brandon was in charge of Leeloo. He took the camera out with his tripod and took some photos of Leeloo at her level. These were the best of the lot.

I worked on the Burnside Winter Twilight Mitts in the morning MAX rides to class. Both afternoons the trains were full/busy, so difficult to do stranded knitting. I'll get more work done on them tomorrow, either at spinning or at Whole Foods. I'm at the thumb increases, so the flow is rolling along. I'd like to get these done so I can pass them on to Susan.


  1. She sounds so vicious in that other video. ;)

  2. Thank you Walden!

    Tammy - that's pretty normal terrier tude. They need to kind of sound ferocious against those rodents. She does have a cute little sound that we all agree kind of sounds like a purr. Getting *that* recorded might be difficult though, cause she doesn't always repeat it and you never know when its going to happen. ;-)

    Her bite inhibition is coming along nicely though. She has bouts of gentle mouthing and a simple 'ow' during some of her wilder moments causes her to immediately remove teeth and jump away. She's a little frustrated by it, so I make sure that there's a toy handy to redirect her.
