What's the Skinny?

Hola everyone.  What's the skinny? 

I've got a few things to share:

The L.A. Kings honored Bob for his years as a player coach with a "Bob Berry" night.


Mom and Bob on the Jumbotron...


Last week I got Eric to go with me to Mardi Growl, a Stray Rescue adoption event. I wanted him to see where I am three days a week. He whined and carried on about going, but once he got there he enjoyed himself. How could you not?

Getting dressed for the costume contest...Cosmo

And Luigi...


I can't wait 'til Eric is 18 and can walk dogs with me.  He has to have a certain number of community service hours for school, so that's what he'll be doing. 
This past Sunday, Larry and I went to a party for Stray Rescue volunteers and celebration of the recovery of Stracks, a dog near death that Randy Grim found in the snow. You've got to watch the video they made that was shown at the party. At the end of the video Randy brought Stracks out. What a sweet doll baby. There were 300 people there and he sat so patiently as everyone pet him.

I know you're all wondering how I got Larry to go to a party for a dog.

Easy...

It was held at a motorcycle museum.






What a neat place.  Larry was wishing we would have had our wedding there.

A shot (not a very good one) of the reception area which is surrounded by cool motorcycles.



My hiking buddy, Capote, got adopted the day after our hike. So happy for him. Oh, and his snout wound healed nicely. Opal "the Shark" rat terrier is still available for adoption.


My favorite dog Harmony got adopted.  She'd been there since I started at Stray Rescue in November.  I got a little teary because I saw her actually leave the building.  I was sad to see her go, but happy she got a home. 



The weather...oh the weather.  I took this three days ago at Stray Rescue.  It was snowing cats and dogs.


Today - THREE DAYS LATER - it's 80 degrees.  Enough to drive someone bonkers, really.

And other news...
Eric is on Spring Break starting this weekend and is going camping with friends.

Julie's plans for her June 4th wedding are going well.  She's so organized.  I still need a dress for the wedding and for the rehearsal dinner, which is Hawaiian-themed. 

Jason's 24th birthday is June 4th and we'll be celebrating it with...a wedding! 

My brother Mike graduates from UCLA on June 11.  I wouldn't miss that for anything, and plan to spend a few extra days in California before the big day.  He's been accepted into the Pepperdine University Master's program and recently interviewed for the program at Cal State Northridge.  Go Mike :)  Soooo proud.

Have a fantabulous weekend.

Lean to the Left...

Wanted to share pictures from our hike on Sunday.  I took Capote, a 10-month-old Stray Rescue pup who I just LOVE.

        "Lean to the left, lean to the right, stand up, sit down, fight fight fight!" 




"Uh, guys...you're going the wrong way."
  



Capote was having the best time until THIS thing - evil Opal, the Stray Rescue dog who will never get adopted - attacked him.  She grabbed on to his snout like a shark and would not let go.  Poor Capote had a deep puncture wound and had to be put on antibiotics when we got back :(


Except for the Opal attack, we had a blast.  Capote was asleep before we even left the trail parking lot.  So cute.


I hope he gets adopted.  He's the best dog.  Friendly with all dogs, great with people and kids. I wonder who I'm going to take on the next hike?  I love that these pups get out of the shelter for the day, and it's great exercise for me.  I think we hiked about six miles.

Cute pic of my niece and nephew - Mark and Maysie


My dad's testimony was featured on Godreports.com.  I learned more about his life from reading this than I ever knew before.  Very cool.  You gotta read it :)


Eric's team plays in the Regionals tomorrow night.  We've made hotel reservations for the State finals, in Columbia, Missouri, which is March 11th.  Wish us luck!

And I had to laugh when I cleaned out my purse today and found the Valentine's cards Larry and I got each other.  Can you guess who's is who's?
