  3. Thank you! Simba is such a sweet friend and she's owned by a disabled Veteran who just loves her to pieces.

    Mom and I will be away a few days (though we'll try and check on with Dad's phone thingy). Her lease was up on the place she was renting nears her work (which is 3 and a half hours away from where she and Dad lives). But I visited the new place today, and it's a community of little homes that has it's OWN dog park!! So I can run without a leash on and without driving45 minutes to another park which means I don't get to go when she's worked a long shift. Yay!

    We will check in when we have the internets again as Mom said she had to change to a different provider (she used the term "Comcast" AND a really bad word - just saying) and there's a couple days between "turn off" and "turn on".

    But I have a porch that's enclosed so I can lay out and feel the winds on my furs without wandering off and the windows look out onto open fields and trees as she's on the edge of the development. I'll be happy when she retires (squirrels have to retire kinda early) and we can be with Dad all the time while she writes and plays with the grandpeeps but I like our new place.

  7. What a lovely face! Joey dog is getting more and more white on his face these days at age 13, and he sleeps a lot more.
