Wow, May has gone by so fast….!  It’s nearly June and my computer has finally been returned to me.  It’s taken a couple of days to get everything reloaded and updated, so that it’s finally back to normal.  You don’t really think about how much of your life is on your computer until it’s gone.  Fortunately we have Time Machine and it had done a complete system back up just prior to having it’s meltdown! Otherwise, I’d be LOST!!! Continue reading

So my mom is babysitting this weekend. More quadpawds!!! Fortunately, these ones are pretty small. (I think Tosca poops bigger than these two.) They are pampered city girls, and mom made them stay outside yesterday while we were working in the yard. It was pretty pathetic!

Hippo birdy to Woo!

Someday, this week, my Rio was born!  Happy, happy day, whichever one it was!!!  I met Rio on Father’s Day 2000, and “they” said she was about 8 weeks old.  The sign on her cage said “German Shep/Lab Mix, Female.”  She had recently been spayed, (yes, that young!  The Humane Society won’t let a puppy go without sterilization, regardless of age.).  She was ADORABLE!  So tiny and sweet!  My heart said, “MINE!!!!”

Being this cute is exhausting!
