Amazing: ABA Going to Bat for Pitties!

I just read about the fact that the American Bar Association is working to combat breed-specific "dangerous dog" legislation by passing a resolution aimed at addressing the behavior of owners (YES!) and their animals, rather than "breed, breed types, or breed appearance."

This is a huge step forward for both pitties and numerous other breeds (Dobies, Rotties, etc.) that have been labelled dangerous in the past. I am so happy!

It's Tough to be a Goose

While I'm making dinner, G has a quiet moment of reflection. Perhaps she's wondering how she got so blessed with such flexible hip joints. Or maybe she's wondering if she's a half-breed: front-half of a pittie, back-half of a frog. Or perhaps, just perhaps, she just snoozing! :)

Long Time, No Blog!

I feel like I've been apologizing quite a bit recently for our lack of blog postings. I can give you the list of excuses: it's summer, it's busy at work, it's soooooo hot. But these things didn't stop me last year, so I don't really have a leg to stand on now, do I? :)

So what have we been up to?

Well, last weekend, we headed upstate to visit my grandma (known to G as "Great Gammie") and had an awesome time. Since we have sold my grandma's house there, we had to stay at a motel, but were lucky enough to find a Red Roof Inn that accepted pups. It wasn't the most luxurious place in the world, but it took dogs, had wireless internet and we could watch the Olympics - all was good:

We also enjoyed some time spent on a beautiful day in the cemetery hunting for long lost relatives. Believe it or not, it was a great experience and we even found a headstone no one had seen in 60 years:

We were able to enjoy upstate staples such as Doug's Fish Fry and the Skaneateles Historic Boat Show as well:

Although a brief trip, G was seriously exhausted upon our return. Here's my little princess passed out, twitching on Sunday afternoon after our return - I always know when G starts dreaming like this, it was probably a very good, very busy trip!
