Today is Alyson and Jim's 3 year wedding anniversary.

Today is Dave's father's 60th Birthday.



Charles Lowell came home with us last night after his surgery, and he was pretty groggy and miserable. His missing ball was located in like, his rib cage. They had to follow some cord pretty far up in order to find it, which made it a pretty tough surgery. He is feeling slightly better this morning, but he's still out of it and obviously not his normal self. I feel so bad for him, but if his missing ball was in his rib cage, clearly it needed to be removed or it would have caused other problems in the future.

As a result, I brought Tuffy to work with me today. He is sleeping under my desk right now. A few years ago, I used to bring Tuffy to work with me pretty regularly and he enjoyed it. As he got older, he got a bit more crotchety, and I didn't totally want him around other people. He has never bitten a human in his life, but still...he will sometimes try to snap at strangers or growl or back...and that is obviously something I don't want to happen to random coworkers!

However, Rory and Charley normally spend the day together, and Tuffy then is alone. Rory can't go near Charley while his is recovering, so I took Tuffy so we could separate the two little ones. The house is set up with baby gates in a way to easily separate them, but Tuffy sometimes gets annoyed and barks A LOT. So, yeh, he's now sleeping under my desk. Every so often he snorts, and anyone in the office chuckles cause they don't expect it. I'm just used to it. He's also farted many times since being here - that's something else that I just ignore but now is funny since we are in public.

Yesterday evening was very quiet. I watched two episodes of Sex and the City Season 1 with my mom, then we watched Wipeout and I survived a Japanese gameshow. I fell asleep for the last 15 minutes of Japanese gameshow - so I missed the end, but whatever. It was the season finale and I woke up to see that Justin had won. Meh. I was tired.

Let's face it: He's cuter and cleaner than some (most!) of the students on campus. hahaha

In his ribcage?? OMG. Well then i'm glad they found it and removed it and hope he recovers well.

When I first got Elliott I used to take him to work too. I took him every day up until he got too much to handle. Everyone loved him and would ask to take him back to their room or outside to potty. He would sleep in my lap while I was working on the computer & I had a little play pin i'd take with me he'd stay in sometimes.

LOL Can you actually HEAR him fart? I've never heard a dog fart! I just smelled it after the fact. That makes me laugh! Cute Tuffy!<3

Poor Charley! My gosh! In his ribcage?! Hope he's doing well!

Glad to hear your doggie will be better. That Japanese gameshow is hillarious.
