Odds and Ends

Not much to report today, just a few quick items.

You might remember awhile back that I was complaining about the fact that Work is Stoopid. You might also remember that I've mentioned a few times that my Dad was going for interviews for a new job. Well good news. They have finally offered him a job and it looks like he is going to take it. Supposedly there will be less travel so that will make everyone happy. Dad certainly seems to be in a better mood since he found out. Now if only he could have found a new job that would let me go to work with him.

Back in October I posted about meeting some Malamute puppies at the dog park. Well I hadn't seen Freya and Loki since that first meeting, until yesterday. We got to the park and I immediately noticed that in addition to my husky pal, Sabrina, there were some other northern breed dogs at the park. I quickly investigated and discovered that it was Freya and Loki. Boy have they grown. They are both bigger than me and they are only 10 months old. Poor Loki had shaved spots on his front legs and belly. My Dad told me later that Loki's mom told him that Loki eat part of a towel and had to have it surgically removed. Fortunately he is doing better now. Too bad Dad didn't have his camera with him to get some pics, maybe next time.

On a last note, Dad and I made a cool discovery in our kitchen the other day. Here is a picture of our fridge. Mom & Dad have all kinds of pics and stuff on it so they use magnets to hold the stuff on. So Dad said to me, "Althea we have a picture of Stormy on our fridge". I was very excited and quickly located the picture, which is actually a magnet that Dad bought a couple years ago at a fundraiser for Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue.

"Can you find Stormy on my fridge?"

"How about if we get a little closer?"

"If you can't find her now, you are just blind"

Pretty cool huh. I really looks like her except the eyes are switched around. And check it out she is right next to the cool sticker that says "If it's not a husky, it's just a dog" (sorry to all you other breeds out there).

Well that's it for today. I'm about ready for another trip to the dog park, gotta go wake Dad up.

Later,
Althea

My parents need one of those magnets that say, "If it's not a husky, it's just a dog." Yesterday I heard my mom saying how she thought we were better than all of the other dogs at the park. Ha ha, boy do we have her trained.

My mom wanted me to tell everyone that that is an empty beer bottle in my mouth. She does not condone dogs drinking alcoholic beverages.
