It was Clay's day off and he had to spend a couple hours at the DMV getting ownership documents replaced because our "filing system" at home is such that we couldn't find them. Afterwards, we had a celebratory lunch of sorts at Beer Run before coming home so I could get back to work. The line of thunderstorms passed through quickly when we were in town, but it rained off and on the rest of the afternoon so it wasn't a day for a hike.
This evening I took a picture of each of the 10 dogs currently residing in our house. Each of these dogs made the ride of freedom in that old van, and some have ridden in it many times since.
|Maya undoubtedly rode in the van more than any other dog|
since she accompanies me whenever possible. Doesn't she
look sweet and innocent when she's sleeping?
|Sparky is loving the indoor life.|
|Vince keeps on ticking. He's hasn't slowed down yet.|
|Samantha next to Clay's chair in the front room.|
|Trooper hangs out with the Clay in the front room|
in the evenings now. The stairs are getting harder
for him so he does them only when necessary.
|Toquima is with us until St. Patrick's Day or thereabouts.|
He's always a pleasure to have around. He's low maintenance,
less trouble than most of our own dogs.
|TJ is bonding to me and can be a butthead with a couple of the|
other dogs on occasion. He's trying to figure out where he fits
into the pack hierarchy. He is my shadow in the house.
|Max has learned how to cope with things around here pretty|
well. He is even occasionally attentive.
