    Happy BooBear day to everyone!
    Wow is Indy a wonderful dog or what? He looks really happy and if he is a true Alaskan husky it is right he loves to run.

    Who is a good boy? Indy—-that’s who! Our Lady likes this story a lot for two reasons: 1) we ran that same race in 2016 and would like to do it again someday on account of it being a fun race with good people, and 2) it reminds her of special dogs who lost their sight including Hazel, the Stray. The Giant and our Lady have become seeing-eye-people for Hazel, a job that is particularly difficult on account of Hazel not knowing her name.

    And it sounds as though Hazel is a very good girl too!

    Maybe Hazel needs a new name. Try different names until she responds to something even if it is dumb like hey you.

    Indeed, I am a very good girl. Recently, I started to insists that this guy carry me around everywhere. I want him to feel useful. He is a good boy just like I am a good girl.

    I have been at the kennel for over a couple of years. My Lady—-she wasn’t my Lady, yet—-was driving the highway early one dark morning when what she thought was a deer ran out in front of her truck which is odd because we don’t have deer in this area. She drove off the road to miss it. She knew she didn’t hit anything, but got out of the truck just to check. As dirt billowed around her and the truck, she saw me. I jumped into the cab of her truck and told her, “I go with you now.” And, so I did and so I’ve done. I go with her and she goes with me. When she called the Giant to tell him what happened, the following conversation may or may not have occurred:

    My Lady (we were on My Lady terms by this point): I have a dog with me.

    Giant: Of course you do.

    My Lady: I’m bringing her home.

    Giant: Of course you are.

    More Giant: What do you want me to do with her? Someone is probably looking for her.

    My Lady: (crying). But, she has old eyes.

    The Giant was wrong and my Lady was right. No one was looking for me. He called vets and had my chip scanned and announced me in social media. And, my Lady knew my eyes are old. How old? No idea, don’t care. I am where I am supposed to be even if we have a dog named Hazel who gets called after a lot, but never responds. I respond from time to time to cover for her even though we’ve never met.

    Many names have been tried with me—-I was running nekkid, sans collar that morning—-and I don’t respond to any of them. I’ve been told our girl, Sierra gave me the name: Sierra Sapphire Hazel, but Hazel for short. Wait! I’m Hazel? It’s all coming together. I may not know my name, but I know I’m loved and that is good enough for me.

    If we are going to talk about good dogs, how about a good kitty? Fluffins and Mr. Big shared a space for an hour and it went ok. There were a few Mr. Biiiggg warnings from me but no real problems.

    What was funny was that every time the two kitties got close enough to engage in a staring contest, Sadie would bounce over and put herself between them. It is like she was thinking Mr. Big would start a kitty rumble. The third time I was on the computer and didn’t notice Fluffins walking past Mr. Big and heading down the hallway with Mr. Big following. Sadie zoomed over to the start of the hallway, looked at me and softly barked as if telling me to get off the computer and pay attention. Then she went outside because it was too stressful to insert herself where claws might be involved. So I guess Sadie is a good dog also.

    Whose the good kitty? Moi.
    Attendant is such a trusting soul and so hopeful Fluffins and I can be friends. I am just biding my time…
    She says we are going to be spending more time together. This could get interesting.

    Rio: Wait! What?!? I had no idea you found Mother running along the highway. We have so much in common.
