Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

The dictionary says:
n 1: tree bearing large brown nuts containing e.g. caffeine; source of cola extract syn: kola nut
Wikkipedia would give you give this picture:
We'd like to amend the definition and add a new photo.
Kola - half Pit Bull, half Lab, all love. Black in color, much like some of our favorite cola drinks. Speaking of fizzy bizzy cola, this pup is plenty bubbly. Then again, what pup isn't
Little Kola was found at the Humane Society. She was given up because she was too much to handle/train for her first owner that got her and her brother as pups. The poor babe had also run away and been hit by a car in the short time she had been with her first owner. There seems to be an awful lot of dogs around the 6-10 month age being given up because they were more work than the owner thought. What do you think a puppy is going to be? What puppy is not a big ball of bounding energy? And 2 puppies together? Oh my! Just ask Bliss... She got 2 little pups at once a couple of months ago. Imagine 2 large breed puppies at one time. I know my house would be in shambles. Ok, more in shambles. Please if you're getting a puppy, think long and hard about how much more work/expense a puppy is.
Little Kola had been at the shelter for 3 months. Her brother was adopted quickly but I think Kola's exhuberance has held her back. She puts on a terrible first impression. Hyper, jumping, wild and full of boing. After bringing her home last night she exolored and then she spent some time laying on top of my feet then in my lap. In fact she spent a lot of time trying to make sure she was touching me or the husbeast. This can be a bad thing when I'm trying to walk while she is trying to make sure some part of her is touching some part of me. At some point I'm sure I'll end up flat on my face.
Min has been really sad being an only dog. I hope Kola's fizzy attitude lifts her spirits.
And now you might say that this has nothing to do with knitting at all but I do have something. Did you notice that collar? Yes, Kola is totally down with Project Spectrum.
Oh yeah, check out that wagging tail. Usually all of her is moving so it's been difficult to get a good picture. I figured food is the only thing that keeps her in one spot, escept when she was asleep on the bed last night but I wasn't getting up to take pictures.
