Serena Post.

What Amanda wants Amanda gets...

Serena..not as innocent as she looks
I fostered Panda, the day we moved house... a sensible time some may say.
Four days later i got Serena....Two puppies, how hard can be be?
Not that hard except our brand new everything is getting crapped on.
She is older than Panda, much more active and aware. Can follow me up and down the stairs mostly without tumbling and is a great help when planting in the front yard, chewing, digging, lap sitting.
Panda is still a wombly, slightly out of focused special needs puppy. Its amazing what weeks can do to the development of beasties.

I'll have them both for a few more weeks yet, we have worked out a system not to let them onto the carpet. Just with Panda it was easier to watch him, but Serena is a tear about so they stay up stairs on the deck and tile and downstairs it the spare bathroom (i pity any guests, we will get it aired out...i promise). Mostly works.

Our new house is awesome...dishwasher...first time ever.
The back deck is a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch and dinner, enjoying it before the snows.
Flagstaff summer is very nice.

Guest bathroom
Yesterday I drove down to Phoenix with a friend, we went to Ikea, Trader Joes and Whole Foods.
Bought some stuff as you do. Ikea even had it in stock, the place is about the size of Sydney Harbour and has water misters along the enterances and exits so to lessen the heat stroke deaths. Phoenix was about 42C and Flagstaff was about 30C.

more cat pictures

We have a cat at work Grizzley, came to us as a tom with a few medical problems. He started hanging out with us in the clinic side just for company and hoping he would chill out a bit.

A few weeks ago we got this teeny tiny kitten in with crushed back feet. Grizzley was stalking thru the room as I was holding the kitten, on a whim I put them together, hoping Griz wouldn't be hungry...well cuteoverload..bite me!

They hit it off and now Grizz and Koala (my suggestion..both bears hehe) are the bestest of bestest mates. They groom each other, eat, play, sleep and basically make us all go "Awww. ohh my god, That is too cute its killing me.." pretty much all the time. Amazing I have any teeth left.
Grizz has calmed down and is a much happier cat.
They are up for adoption together....

Life is Good
