Dogs v. Cars

DeSmet lost their first game on Friday.  Here's the stats link for that game against Chaminade:

After finding a seat in the gym before the game, I went out to my car to get my video camera and there were a hundred people outside who weren't allowed in because the game was sold out.

It was crazy.
Bradley Beal, the Chaminade player who is #7 in the nation, got a technical during the game for talking smack, and then a bit later he hung on the rim for a few seconds after a dunk.  He should have gotten another tech for that, but they didn't call it. If they had he would have been thrown out of the game, which would have incited a riot for sure.

The next game is tonight against St. Charles West.  I'll post updates for that game tomorrow.  Eric came home from school today with a migraine.  If he isn't at school for at least half a day he isn't allowed to play in the game.  He slept for two hours and went back in time to be there a half day.

On Friday I walked dogs at Stray Rescue for 3 1/2 hours.  I took pictures of every one of the 15 dogs I walked, but I'll spare you and only share a few :)

This is Gladiola, one of my favorites...


She was a bait dog and had one of her eyes removed, but she has the sweetest personality. I love her. 


Me and Whisper

Rizzoli, another awesome, sweet dog

So I drive home after picking up dog poop all morning
I have no make up on
I've got on boots, a raggedy old jacket and jeans
My hair is in a ponytail and I smell like a dog kennel
But I've just had the BEST day EVER
There's nothing else I'd rather do than spend time with the pups 

As I pull into my driveway

This is what my husband is doing... 


Lining up his cars and taking pictures of them

Can you say "different worlds"?


Now if we could just find a way to incorporate our passions :)

I think Eric inherited mine...

Hope your son felt better and had a great game!! My heart breaks for those dogs and how cruel people are. It's a crisis with the amount of pit bulls that are in shelters across America!
