Hey buds –

We spent this past weekend up in Bellingham, Washington on a dog training clinic. It was intense. And, we discovered, Oliver is a very bad dog, indeed. Oh, a lovable little guy – LOVES everyone and everything – but he thinks every molecule of the universe is his. He's willing to share, but it's his. He rules. This is going to be a very hard concept to drill out of him, though he came close to learning it. Every time he got near a male dog, they'd growl, grumble and one went so far to bite him. I, of course, freaked out – but we were to blame. We had to take a doggy time-out. And, they're right, Oliver did go up to him and try to sniff/play – encroached on "his" space. But, jeez. Needless to say, was not the weekend I was expecting.

Miss you, buds – hope you're feeling grand!

Love you,

Maybe there's hope for the future for me and your little girls. When I cared for Jane's cats this past weekend, they greeted me and one was definitely receptive to petting, if not quite purring.
And this afternoon I stopped at Sprainbrook Nursery (for their two for price of one flowering cyclamen) and they have a LARGE short-haired black cat with a bewitching white patch on its throat. He/or she only had eyes for me....not that there were many customers. But we had eye contact and the cat kept coming back for more stroking.
When do you actually switch offices?......if you're too busy, you really don't have to stop to tell me now. Just reporting in on my kitty-progress.

California Chronicle: A Romp in the Park
California Chronicle - Los Angeles,CA,USA
The part of Corie Bratter, the effervescent bride, is zestfully played by former model, Abigail Kochunas. She brings breathless energy to the part even ...

Bloggers Note: This was fwd to Sam after his mom tried to convince him to meet up with the daughter (who is an actress) of a friend of hers. He wasn't sold on the original pitch so she thought the review from California Chronicle might help.

Since your birthday is on Sat. this year, will you have time for a party? As I recall, you were born on a Sat., so we had to reschedule a planned dinner party. You just couldn't wait.

Love, Gidget
