As you can see, Dusty (my sisters dog on the right) has found a new friend. It appears that her roomate has adopted a new dog whose name currently escapes me since only Libby got the email with the pictures! She’s quite a cutie and it looks as though he and Dusty are enjoying themselves. Update: her name is Panda!
I’ve had a great week at work
designing and implementing a new framework for our new software release planned for early next year. In addition, we’re only 9 customers shy of reaching 1000 compared with 109 when I started
at the beginning of February! Libby’s gotten to do a bit of MRI scanning that she’s been unable to do for a lot of this semester due to her heavy class schedule. Libby’s also been tutoring for two different high-school students one of whom is enrolled in the Carolina Friends School
Libby and I both had long and stressful weeks, especially with 6 dogs to take care of including two puppies. Cody
was adopted last weekend, so we had Lily, Marshall, Dash, Star
, Mandy, and Beanie
. We’re finally getting some relaxing in this weekend. Libby’s been enjoying the Sims 2
and I’ve just been relaxing, listening to my audio books
. Mandy was supposed to be going home this weekend, but her transport was cancelled because some of the legs couldn’t be filled so she’ll be with us for another week.
Finally, I wanted to wish my Grandmother Doyle a happy birthday this past week.
Yesterday, I celebrated my 25th birthday (a quarter century!) including a tasty dinner at Red Robin. Libby suprised me with some floor cushions, a new CD for our alarm clock, and a cookbook in addition to the Sirius Satellite Radio I requested!
We believe that we’ve found a good home for Marshall. They’re a young married couple with a young female dog who loves everyone. The family fosters dogs for Dachshund Rescue of North America. Their dog named Lillian is a real angel.
In all seriousness, we’ve decided to adopt charming Mr. Marshall. We know that he’ll be happy with us. Lillian and he have become the best of friends since he came to stay with us. We don’t think he should ever leave. Libby’s already started planning an order to shower him with collars, leashes, harnesses, and toys.
