In Memory of Yogi

Our little boy Yogi passed away last night. He was almost 2 1/2 years old and we brought him home when he was a baby of 3 weeks. Yogi was a very shy but sweet hamster and will be missed by the Nathanson family. He was also a grand champion, having beat 17 other hamsters at the Petco Hamster Derby in 9/06.

Here is a photo of him when we first brought him home – he loved to hang out in his food bowl and was always happiest with his cheeks stuffed full of treats :o)


Latest Socks and Beagle Tales

I finished my first pair of Jaywalkers a few days ago – and I love them! They’re such happy, vibrant socks and the Cherry Hill Supersock Merino in the Champlain Sunset colorway makes the chevron pattern really come alive!

We traveled to the Hunterdon Aboretum on Monday for a doggy photo shoot. Nikol posed graciously for the photographer despite soaring temperatures!

She will most likely have her photographs published in the PetPrint’s Beagle Calendar (Mom Ariel on the cover of 2007’s calendar) and also other breed-related publications.

Speaking of Ariel, who declined to attend a photo shoot on such a hot day…I think she may have some puppy buns in the oven! Will know for sure on June 5th after her official x-ray ;o)
