A refresh and an update

It's been a long time since I blogged about my life on the great big internets. I have refreshed my site to be just heatherwalpole.com because it reflects me best now. 

Things are going well at Ewe Ewe. I'm working on growing the business and expanding the brand's reach. It takes a long time to have a strong brand in the yarn industry. Shop owners want to know you're going to be around next season. I'm happy to say that each year the company and product line have grown and the company is starting to look the way I imagined it would. That was almost four years ago now! 

Other than that there's still three crazy dogs here with my husband and me. We spend a lot of time playing with them, cooking good food and exploring the amazing world of San Diego craft beer.  

Here's Charlie. 


And Lola. 


And Henry. 


And it's Friday so I'm going to go enjoy this martini!

My little Lola

I don't know what it is about this dog but she makes me laugh at every turn. Lola is either on or off. There's no in between with her. She's alert or she's passed out like a champ. See, here she is completely interested in what I'm doing, am I going to get her a treat? 

Of course I am! How could I not after that little face? 

But then there's this. Did she have too much bourbon? Passed out cold!

Oh, Lola! 


Working from home gives you the opportunity to really get to know your pets and all their quirks. When I worked out of the house I was certain that the dogs would sleep all day and then be ready to play by the time I got home. Being home means they don't sleep as often and they're ready to play, bark at the mailman or pathetically beg for a tiny morsel of my lunch. Lola was laying on the floor with her neck stretched as far as it would go just so she could rest her chin on the edge of my chair. It looked really uncomfortable and entirely hilarious.
