Gee, I’ve been on the road for a mere four days, which for me is nothing! But I miss the kids and Barbara a lot. Now, here’s part of the problem: I’m used to being away on business about 50% to 60% of the time, sometimes for three and four weeks at a shot. And [...]
Barbara told me on the phone this morning (I’m on the road until the end of next week) that Shadow will be adopted this weekend, probably Sunday. She’s been talking to a family who lives in California but who happens to be in Colorado at the moment. They have just adopted a (young female) rescued [...]
Just about a year ago, I bought myself a new digital camera, a nice little Casio Exilim EX-Z1000. Sweet camera, small enough for a shirt pocket, takes great photos and decent video clips.
The problem is that it’s easy to keep handy, and easy to use. And I’ve taken over 2,000 photos & videos. I’ve managed [...]
Early tomorrow morning, I’ll be leaving on a jet plane (y’all remember Peter, Paul, and Mary, doncha?). I have a 4-day business meeting in Austin, TX, next week, and I’m going early so I can drive to Lake Charles, LA, to spend a couple of days visiting my 93-year old mother. Heck, it’s only 250 [...]
Late yesterday afternoon, I answered the phone. It was Cottonwood Animal Hospital telling us that a good Samaritan (they’re not really from Samaria — who is, these days? — so should that really be capitalized?) had just dropped off a Sheltie whose microchip traced back to Sheltie Rescue of Utah. There was no other information [...]
Yesterday, we got a phone call from somebody down in Utah County (the county to the south of Salt Lake County where we live) saying that they’d found a dog running on the streets with our nametag on him and/or our microchip in him (I got confused over which it was…it changed a couple of [...]
Sorry that it seems like I only blog about Tanner, but I really like him…
Last night, for the first time since Barbara’s shoulder replacement surgery, we slept in our waterbed…together Until now, she’s been sleeping on the couch in the family room, and I’ve been on an air mattress in another room with [...]
Last night, while we were watching telly, Tanner was lying on the back of the couch on which I was lying with Abby on my chest. Rather abruptly, Tanner stood up on the back of the couch and one hind foot slipped off. I reached over to stabilize him and was putting his foot back [...]
This afternoon, we picked Tanner up from the vet’s, where we’d taken him Monday evening to be neutered on Tuesday. We would have picked him up on Tuesday, but it seems that he metabolized the anesthesia more slowly than some dogs and thus they wanted to keep him overnight.
He is such a sweet boy. For [...]
Well, today was Tessa’s adoption day. Mid-afternoon, a slightly elderly man (let’s call him John, since that’s his name ) and his son (we’ll call him John too…same reason) came over for the older John to meet and adopt Tessa. Barbara had done a very careful pre-screen of this gentleman and we’d agreed [...]
