    I'm sorry about Lewis's passing! But it sounds like you two had a great life together.

    The pictures of Gizmo with the Cafe bag are priceless: we'll post them on our blog this week or next. Thanks for sharing! They actually don't mind being on a harness? Wow!

    That's the first time I've been happy to not live in the Seattle area. I would have adopted Patches had I been in the area and I can barely handle the two mutts I have now!!!

    I do feel a bit of shame for not doing more for a cause myself. I do own a pretty nice camera and I've learned a bit about photography (though I'm still not that good).

    Well, I sadly had to euthanize my beloved 16 year old beagle in September 2007. We both grew up at the same time, bumbling our way through our teen years together, and I still miss her terribly.

    Apparently it takes two cats and two birds to fill the void Lewis left. I recently adopted one cat, then another, from the humane society where I volunteer every Saturday. Here are some pictures of Gizmo loving my Medium Cafe Bag, up at our shack in the woods, and some shots of her and the more recent addition - Calliope. Giz is about 5.5 months, Calli is around 2.5.

    It's been really hard to capture Calli on camera. She barely ever stops moving. Gizmo came to me with a spinal injury that really slowed her down when she was Calli's age, so I had much better luck photographing her.

    My condolences. :(

    Kaylee is gorgeous!

    I'll try to take pictures of Lily and Riley (dogs) and Willy (cat) interacting with the new members of the animal menagerie Rachel and Natalie (guinea pigs) who were adopted from the Humane Society as they were "strays" found in a garden.

    Gonzo & Twinkie

    Gonzo & Twinkie....

    Gonzo's a smart kitty with tons of attitude. :) He's on top of the basket. Twinkie is under the basket (you can just see a lil of her face)...she has a bit of a weight problem and isn't as bright as Gonzo, but a very sweet kitty :) They both love boxes, sitting on newspapers, tuna & salmon, and watching birds through the windows :) Gonzo likes to be as dirty as possible, while Twinkie is constantly grooming lol.

    Congrats about the new pup!

    You are spot on about the training.

    Victoria Stillwell from "It's me or the Dog" is casting episodes in the U.S.

    If you live there, you could, if you wished, submit an application on her website.
    I hope I have not stepped out of acceptable boundaries by suggesting that.

    I admire you and your family for taking on a new pup, especially one with history of violence around him.

    I have not had the guts to take on the responsibility of a dog yet.

    Here is our latest dog. Her name is Hope and she was picked up off the streets after being attacked by some roaming dogs. No owner came forward to claim her so a local rescue group took her in. We saw her at Petsmart and decided to give her a try. We tend to regret the decision nearly every day - she's a handful for many reasons. Our biggest issue now is she barks at strangers on walks. We have to walk our dogs separately because Hope upsets Georgia when she barks and causes a fight which makes it worse. We're working on conditioning her to not bark at strangers with some chicken and training on walks.

    We aren't sure what she is yet but we may get a DNA test. We think part pit or great dane and maybe weimeraner. She's 48 pounds at 9 months and we really hope no more growing will happen but her paws are huge.


    This is our favorite picture of Hope because it shows how she appears to have nothing but rocks in her head. She seems to always be saying "what?" all the time.

    I have another note to add to my "traveling with pets" essay above: when you're traveling with your cat or dog in a carrier or in the car, and your transportation time is likely to be half an hour or more, or if your cat/dog gets nervous and has accidents in the car, it is worth buying a package of puppy training pads. They're like big, flat diapers but they're designed for pets, which makes them perfect for lining a carrier with - and that way if your pet has an accident, all you need to do is replace the liner.

    I had to bid farewell to Rogue in June. :( Here is the new little kitty in my life, Kaylee, who - despite her calm demeanor in this picture - is a powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm. :) If you look in front of her she has a mouse... that is her favorite toy in the world, and she plays fetch with it with me!

    Well, I may have another picture to add to this thread. We are going to "try" another dog tomorrow to go along with our pride and joy Georgia. Her name is Hope and she's a rescue. We are totally unsure if we can handle it but we think it will benefit Georgia. The foster group will take her back if it doesn't work but it's still nerve wrecking.

    And this change is related to TB in a way. We use the Imago now to carry all of Georgia's stuff as I've posted in a few shots as she curls up on the ground when we eat on the patio of a resturant. I doubt we could dine out with two but if we do go out with both I'm not sure the Imago is big enough! Sometimes I roll a blanket and use the Imago to hold it and I don't think I could do that with two blankets! Oh no!! Meh - who am I kidding. Two blankets?? No place is going to stand for that!

    So very nervous right now. Maybe I need to shop for a new laptop bag to settle me down ...

    Alicia, no worries... 1k or 10k, dealing with a pet while traveling takes special considerations either way. :) Good luck on your move!
