Guess who sent me a pupdate photo? Gerri and Don, who adopted Major Bo Jangles! Remember him? One of foster dog Lucy's ten pups who were born here in 2010? He was the subject of "The Magic of the Quilt". (If you joined the blog readership since then, do click on the link to read his story. It will have you smiling all day long!)
Here's a picture I took of him as a baby:

Just before his second birthday
Sure looks like there might have been a German Shepherd somewhere in his genes. And those long, long legs obviously didn't come from Mama Lucy Loo!
Major Bo's family and I are hoping to take the dogs walking together soon. I'll be sure to take a zillion photos.
Second Happy Tail:
Georgi and Sadie B went home last night. That's not the "happy" part. The happy part is how well Sadie and Eddie get on together. They've always gotten along just fine on our frequent walks, though they don't actually 'play' together - their walks were more a case of well-mannered indifference. But this week I saw a distinct difference in their customary indifference to each other - by yesterday morning, they were walking side by side on trails, lying side by side on the grass in the back yard, and seeking each other out around the house.

Eddie is looking for Sadie B. this morning. He really liked her company. Truth be told, I think he mostly liked that I took the two of them to Osborne Bay Park every day (it's much easier to give young Sadie B enough exercise with a long line and with Eddie off leash, than trying to walk both of them on leash around town), and that there are more treats offered when Georgi and Sadie B are here.
Yesterday was another gorgeous day at the park.

|Hmmmm....what's that over there?|
|Stinky stuff to roll in!!|
|Sadie B! You're so silly! P--ewwww!|
Sadie washed off in the ocean, then we headed home where the dogs hung out in the yard while I mowed the lawn - hopefully for the last time until spring! Then I washed the windows outside and in, so as much winter sun as possible could light up our lives, and then we all had a nap. It was a very good day.
