New Inmate

Ok, so it's been forever since I posted. But look - PUPPY!
Her name is Friday, and she is a 12 week-old Jack Russell Terrier. It's not really her fault that I haven't been posting, but as you can see, she is very distracting, and she knows it. This is her "sincere" face. "But daddy, I really NEED another biscuit..."

Just getting a decent picture of her has been a real challenge. I went through over 50 still images and about 30 minutes of video footage just to find what I've posted here. Almost every shot was a blur, or too dark, or a picture of her licking/chewing the camera. In other words, she is a healthy, normal Jack Russell puppy.

When she is tired, she likes to crash on a lap. She is not concerned about which lap - any will do.

I am uploading a video of terrible quality to YouTube right now. It is honestly the only one that is even remotely watchable. My camera needs a lot of light to get a decent picture and this was shot at night, but it's still worth immortalizing as it was actually taken the night we brought her home.

As soon as I get up tomorrow I'll get it embedded for you - right now I have to get to bed so that I can be on time for another day in the salt mine - I mean, the office.

That could be the segue into a lengthy rant about my job, but I will spare you the details. The people, including my supervisor, are nice, but the computer systems are nightmarishly old and the students are sometimes less than civil. Suffice it to say that working for Dunder Mifflin would be preferable. Perhaps I'll bore you all with the details at a later date.

In the meantime, sleep well.

Thanks Mayren!

She is quite adorable, and made of 100% trouble. She hasn't chewed up anything serious yet, but that is due only to the superhuman diligence of everyone at Flock Hall. It takes a village... :)

That's how many conversations at Flock Hall sound these days. The nearness of a puppy stops all intelligent discourse in its tracks.

Example: "When Marx speaks of "gattungswesen" or "species-being", he is actually building on the work of Feuerbach... OMG PUPPY!"

Yeah - not a lot of higher thought going on around here right now. :)

Wow, so adorable! When she runs she looks dainty, she kinda prances, which is so cute. I am looking forward to roommate updates. :)

This weekend, I'm going to take her to the soccer fields and try to get some footage of her really running. When she stretches out she looks a lot less prissy. :)

Hi Mayren,

She is just about all powerful - she is in my head!

For example - even though she is not really old enough to be out of her kennel all night (not fully housebroken yet), she managed to convince me to let her sleep in bed with us almost all of last night. She's like a Bene Gesserit of cuteness...
