Dear dog-

Abigail aka dog-

Yes, that was the furnace that turned off… thank you for barking. If you really feel that someone might be entering the house, jump off the bed and go look. Dummy. I know you are still a little unsure about this new little house but yeah… sitting on the bed and barking isn’t nearly as effective as you think. But, I’m glad that our bed has become your safe spot. You’re so cute and a pretty good dog, way to be. In a bit we’ll go get coffee and I’ll make sure the lady gives you a biscuit or 2.

Horray for December First.

leave a comment »

Hooray, November is finally over.  !!!

We’re finally moved into our house. It looks like our old apartment threw up into our 2 story house… random stuff is everywhere. We’ll put it all away soon, but it does feel nice not to be on a strict deadline. Um, if only I could find my razor to shave my legs… but I might need hot water for that.

The dog survived the move… she might tell you about her little panic episodes if she had a voice box, but she doesn’t. Today was the first time she was in the house alone, minus the drop in by the land lord and electrician… more on that in a moment. She did bark at me when I opened the front door, from the confines of our bed.

So about 3 weeks or so ago I told Kevin there was no hot water. He said it was probably turned down due to the house having been up for sale and having sat semi-vacant for years. I asked the land lord when I saw him 2 weeks ago and he said it was turned down and just not very hot. Yes, not very hot is similar to freezing cold but different in my book… So we finally are in and ready to live on Saturday. I worked super early on Saturday morning and all I really wanted was a hot shower. I’m also pretty awesome and bought a stall sized shower curtain and was going to settle for a bath. But wait! No hot water because no one ever turned up the hot water heater. After being turned up, there still was no hot water to speak of Sunday night. So today, being Monday, our land lord and his electrician were supposed to come early and fix it. I left for work at 9:30, early they did not come. Kevin later called to say it was ready to go and had been fixed. O rly? No, not really. I got home at 4:30 and turned on multiple facets and let them run for a few minutes, not moments and there is NO FUCKING HOT WATER. Hmm, how would you know it was fixed if you didn’t wait for the water to get hot? Hmm. But see this all would have been solved if people had listened to me when I mentioned this in the first place. Seriously, I’m not as dumb as some might perceive me as. I might not know about engines and cars and computers but I know when hot water isn’t hot. I like my baths and showers to be almost scalding. So, tonight might be shower at folk’s house, day 2? Geez.

If anything, today was a nice day. It started out foggy and the coffee was decent.

For the love of dogs…

Yesterday while Kevin and his brother in law wired the house for cable, I took Desirae and the mutts to the dog park. She was blown away by how big it was and how much space there was for her dog to run. We go to Westcrest which I must admit is a bigger one, totaling 5 acres.

There are no dog parks or off leash area in Olympia, Lacey, or Tumwater. There is only one in Tacoma and one in Lakewood. Seattle has 11. Redmond , Mercer Island, Edmonds and SeaTac all have one. O rly?

Seriously people! We need more dog parks! For the dogs! And for the humans.

SODA and COLA are great things for dog parks in King County. You other counties, get your stuff together and get a dog park. Some people live in apartments and their dogs need to get out. Some people like to take their dogs to the park to socialize them. And some people just like to take their dogs to the park so their dogs can just be a dog in a large enclosed space.

Dogs love parks just as much as dogs love trucks.

Oh wireless router, I’m glad you were replaced!

My dog is afraid of strange men with leaf blowers, but not afraid of my dad with a leaf blower.

When washing laundry with a random towel that was used for cleaning guns, it will take a good 5 or so washings/soakings with water softeners, liquid Dawn, your regular laundry detergent and 2 scented dryer sheets to get the awesome chemical scent out. Thanks sweetie, I love you.

Stroh tastes like burning and butterscotch and christmas… all in one awful fiery gulp. Yuck.

Moleskin doesn’t work.

I’ve committed myself to 2 5ks! The Issaquah Salmon 5k and Jingle Bell Run. Hmm.

Wet dogs aren’t happy dogs.

The best way to clear out a dog park on a summer day: sudden rain downpour

The best way to dry off a wet dog: the back seat of a Honda Civic?

I’ve never seen Abigail rush towards the gate so quickly.

We’re still on the dog hunt…
