Doggies and Destash

So I've been on the hunt for a great dog for us (fiance and I). And I think we met her today. Her name is shasta and she's a 5 year old Pit Bull / Boxer mix. She is currently in a foster home near us and we went and played with her this afternoon. She is a really sweet girl who loves tummy rubs. In the house with her are another dog and 2 cats. One of the cat likes to snuggle on her head (we saw it happen) which is awesome because we have 3 cats and just can't have a dog that doesn't love cats. So we're working on getting our house set up so she can wander in and out through a dog door into the back yard.
There is only one problem. His name is Arnold and he is a 3 year old Pit at the Berkeley Animal Shelter who I met yesterday while volunteering there. The poor guy has been there for a year. And we took him outside in their play area and hung out and played with him. He's super sweet and sane for having been locked up for a year. He's a bit more playful than Shasta and they say he's good with cats but we'd have to really test that. I just want them both... such sweet dogs. It's just hard to decide if we want a really playful active guy or a super sweet mellow girl who is for sure really great with cats. If i just had a farm I'd take them all home with me.

And we're trying to declutter to make room for one of these cuties.... so I'm selling a little bit o yarn:

So all 12 balls for $30 and I'll throw in free shipping. Leave me a comment if interested.

Has the male dog met your cats yet? Maybe you could do a house visit with him or something. Poor guy for having no home for a year. My cats had been in the shelter for 6 months when I got them--since birth.

Hi. I realize this post was a seriously long time ago, but I was wondering if you happen to still have the Skacel Sirinetta in grey? I desperately need to skeins to finish a sweater I'm knitting and the yarn is very hard to find. I, of course, would be willing to pay you. Thanks for your help!
