Wow, we've been busy with a new puppy! Our new pal is 4 months old, and we're told it's a Great Pyrenees/Collie mix, although we are completely convinced that the mix is with Lab, not collie.
She's a sweety, no accidents in the house after a week, and her only flaw is the desire to chew EVERYTHING! So, Esther has me convinced on the merits of "crating" the dog.
It's certainly fair, she gets lots of exercise and play time and time outside. Over night, and when we can't watch her inside, in she goes to her "lair", and she sleeps and chews her rawhide. Since I got to name our last cat at our zoo, Stella, Esther got to pick this one out. So say hi to "Storm", like the chick in the X-Men movies with white hair.
So, that's the big news here. We had a really great friend visit us last weekend which I'm sure Esther will blog about soon. She came from Portland, Maine, and endured many connections and a cancelled flight in Chicago.
I'm looking forward to switching up from a more humble Defense Department agency (Air Force, or average Joe's), and going over to the Defense Logistics Agency (Globo-Gym). Esther's kicked it into summer gear now that she's not in school, and I catch her each night when I return home, bent over the stove, with apron on, house in order.
Life is good.
