So, Dog has been fine here all week (I think today was day 10 that we’ve had him), and he and Zora have really gotten along. Dog doesn’t have any desperate need to be “alpha” or “top dog” so Zora realized he wasn’t a threat (and that he was a cool playmate) pretty quickly. I

I placed a “found dog” classified in the paper, but the lady said that there weren’t any “lost yellow lab” ads placed recently. I’m really getting the feeling this guy was simply abandoned. Which makes me really angry. In happy news, there are a few people who have expressed interest in possibly adopting him once

Here he is, taking a nap without having to worry about bugs biting him or cars hitting him. His tummy is full and he’s out of the hot summer sun. At the same time, our dog Zora took a nap in the kitchen. Of course, they have tons of regular kids books on every topic

Zora and I were going for a walk the night before last when this dog came up to us looking for love. He and Zora sniffed each other, played a little, and then coexisted nicely. The dog followed us. No collar, skinny as anything, not neutered. I borrowed a collar and leash from someone who

Zora LOVES to chew on things… luckily, she hasn’t chewed on the furniture or anything like that (she tried the first couple days she was with us, but I think we got the message across).

This is how the garden looked a few days ago… lots and lots of monkey grass, a weird bush thing on the left (which was actually 3 separate plants), and a bunch of weeds. So we pulled up a lot of the monkey grass, that ugly bush, and all the weeds. And put in lots

So I probably should’ve written sometime in the last couple weeks about this… but so much was going on! First, we went to South Carolina for a week, and since then we’ve been settling in and getting our newest family member used to the way things work here. About a week before we went to
