Oh Wow

What reading 3 books about Labrador Retrievers doesn’t tell you is that reading the body language of dogs is very tough. It’s 9 o’clock, and we’ve had Cali for 6 hours. I slept on the floor with her for a good hour of it, then she had her first little accident. She’s been taken outside 3 times, with Sara currently outside on the fourth….but somehow she seems to like our floors rather than the outside area. Accident count: 2, the second was minutes after she came inside again….doh!

To be fair, Cali is the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.

Introducing Cali

Tomorrow Sara and I are driving out to Shirley, Long Island and picking up Cali. She’s a black Labrador Retriever puppy about 7 1/2 weeks old. Her official B-Day is February 27th. She’ll get her own hexagon on the buzolich.com website….kinda like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but different. Her page will have lots of pictures of her and a blog of my attempts to control pure energy. Do you have any good dog training tips? Please post them!

Putt Putt

An 18 is possible.Not going to mention the guy that suggested this game as a diversion from working, but this is really addicting. Try a game or two of Miniputt. The first one is free….

Leader Board:
KJB – 27
TMB – 28
ARH – 29

Kendall answered the challenge and responded with a vigor.
Check out this scorecard: 1,1,1,1,1,2,1,2,2,2,2,1,1,1,2,1,2,3 = 27

Editor’s Note: This game has been mastered. Every hole has been one putted.

Yes Dear

There is something soothing about watching the wisps of fog roll across the housetops in San Francisco. We had a warm, sunny day in Los Altos Hills with Sam’s family. We spent Easter coloring Easter eggs and then hunting for ones filled with candy. Dinner was lamb with mint jelly, asparagus, and potatoes with the optional ranch dressing (Thanks John). Arlene was nice enough to introduce me to a little deer named, “Yes”….I think we’ll be having an interesting relationship.

Many thanks to the Melens for a great Easter and to Chez Hugo for a great weekend. New York is supposed to be very nice in the spring… 🙂

Flip Side

Out on the West Coast this weekend. It’s nice to be back at Chez Hugo and see the boys. Wonder where Hoolie was last night? Planning on a good long hike to a waterfall and hopefully some nice beach time and kite flying. Kendall was a big fan of getting a dog. That makes the count: Lab 1, Sara 0.

Hamlet

To Dog or not To Dog, that is the question. Whether tis nobler to get a pet rider from the building management, or simply listen to the advice from our fleet of doormen when asked how do I get a dog, “You just buy a puppy.” Those guys rock!
