My hubby works full time, and rarely has a chance to go with me on my little excursions. But today he decided to take the drive with me. Lynn had a very sweet-natured dog for many years and had to put her to sleep last fall because she was very ill. At Lou's house we found not one, but two dogs for him to play with. This little guy on Lynn's lap is Jasper; she's very lovable and sweet and was really enjoying all the attention.
This is Amy with Jasper and her own dog Lucy. Now one cannot describe Lucy as sweet and lovable. She is just a little bit high maintenance, as she loves to hear herself bark, and she wants to play ball incessantly. She's very focused and would probably make a good watch dog or hunting dog. Amy found her when she was just a small baby, 2 1/2 pounds, and nursed her back to health. Needless to say she has won Amy's heart, and she sort of grows on you after a while.
While Amy and I visited about our project, Lynn kept both dogs occupied. He really misses having a dog, and when we got home, he said "Well, I guess I got my 'dog fix' ; it should last me a little while". We are taking a missions trip to Haiti in March, and he will probably try to get another dog when we get home from the trip.
Before we left to come home, we went out to eat at Ivanhoe's, a very favorite restaurant in Upland. Nothin' better than a burger and cheese fries and a turtle sundae. Ouch! Gonna have to get back on that diet today!
