High School Reunion:
It's been - well, let's just say more than a few - years since I graduated from High School. I finally went to one of the reunions. Lots of fun. Maybe a few too many glasses of cheap (but not inexpensive) red wine. Then a family picnic. Good to see my best friends. Fun to try and guess who people were...
The Husband and I intend to move to Southwest Washington at some point. House prices and interest rates are low, so we're on the hunt for a home with some acreage that we can rent out, and eventually move into. We spent 2 days with a realtor while we were there, and found a few places that look promising (if the price is right).
Spent lots of time with my niece and nephew. Also got to celebrate my Grandma's 88th birthday with her!
On the last day of my "vacation," when I was supposed to be relaxing, I decided to check my email. In it was a note from Carolyn wondering if I was interested in a puppy who was in need of a home. The puppy met my criteria: well-built, good temperament, performance potential, from good breeders. Oh, and did I mention that he was only 60 miles away from my parents house?
After mulling it over, discussing with the husband, calling United to make sure a puppy could be in the cabin with us, I was off to Starry Nights Stables in Newberg (via PetSmart for a crate, toys, water bowl, leash, collar & piddle pads).
So here's our newest:
His registered name will be: C-Myste Baledwr SN Surfin' USA.
We're still working through a few surfing-related call names.
You can expect lots of upcoming puppy posts.
In the meantime, here's what happens when you wear a puppy out:
That trip to Starbucks was tiring!
