    Katy Meets the Welcoming Committee
    On the advice of Tammie Rogers,  Bill’s puppy, “Katy,” is spending her evenings and nights in the house. (So much for the “We are not going to have another indoor dog” vow we took).  
    As she participated in the “Callie ran 15 feet up a tree and couldn’t get back down” episode, Callie does not hold out the paw of friendship to Katy.

    The Moon has Waned …
    … but the indoor critters seem to have stepped up their” full moon activities,” or maybe they are having pre-mature cabin fever.
    When I am really busy, getting caught up in the house and going from room to room, Josie, the little doggie, follows me …from room to room.
    Callie, whose greatest enjoyment in life seems to be acting as an impediment in Josie’s progress, follows us and lies down across the doorways so Josie can’t get past. Josie barks until we tell Callie to move.
