On Saturday, we went to the SPCA to look at a dog, a seven-month-old black puggle. Well, I went and met him, then George joined me, and then we had to go get Walter so the puppy and Walter could meet. Of course, the deal was sealed when I walked into the shelter. Walter played with the puppy (named Milo) for a bit at the shelter, but lost any fondness for the dog when he realized it was coming home with us.
“Milo” didn’t seem to fit, so we tried to find a name more appropriate to his personality and our taste. I had lots of ideas: Lumpy, Elmer, Milton, Martin. But we finally settled on Norman. It was the only name George didn’t find stupid.
Norman is very affectionate and energetic, and he and Walter are beginning to have an understanding. It’s a lot of work with a baby in the house, but it’s worth it!
The Peer Advisors held an ice cream and cookies event to raise funds for their activities as well as for the SPCA’s ambulance campaign. They were sure to have vegan cookies for me – and I’m trying not to eat them all in one sitting!
I made these bottle cap magnets for an “Altered Bottle Caps” swap on Swap-Bot. The images on the magnets in the top picture came from a Great Lakes Company “Commodore Perry” beer box. George’s Thursday night beer tastings do come in handy for something!
