Our old Chileno son is coming Monday to visit for 2 weeks.  Chef was an exchange student 10 years ago.  He’s been back several times.  I last saw him in November.  We’re excited.  It’s been almost 4 years since he’s been ‘home.’
I took BadLab and GoodDobie for their walk tonight, and we stopped to get pets from 3 high school boys.  After they petted GoodDobie for a few minutes, one of them asked if he was ‘friendly and nice.’  i just said yes.  I didn’t know what else to say without being snarky.
 Earlier today, I cleaned BadLab’s stinky ears.  Know what works like a giant Q-tip? A Tampon.  He has big ears, it fit, and it made him happy. 
My new FES arrives tomorrow.  His hostmom and I are picking him up.  I’ll be back to the airport Saturday to greet 2 more FES’s and introduce them to their counselors and/or host families.
 We almost got another dog last week. We need another dog like I need a baby. (2 dogs, 2 humans.  I can handle both beasts alone for walks, but I couldn’t control 3 of them.  If Husband or I are home alone, we have a dog velcro’d on each side. GoodDobie is 9 or 10, and BadLab is 6½.)
 But read this bio, and tell me you wouldn’t call about her. Rumba is a 10 year old black female with cropped ears and a docked tail. Rumba’s story is a very sad one. Rumba’s elderly owner became very ill and had to move into a nursing home. Rumba’s human brother (Owner’s son) decided the only option for Rumba was euthanasia. Once again, this is a person we hope receives a haunting rather than an inheritance once his mother passes. At any rate, a concerned acquaintance of the family contacted us about the situation and we intervened so that Rumba would not have to die unnecessarily. Rumba is an absolutely wonderful girl. Everyone who meets her, falls in love with her. She is perfect!!! Rumba is very gentle and sweet and she gets along great with other animals. She has impeccable manners both in the house and out in public and would make a wonderful addition to almost any household.  She was adopted Monday.  I hope she lives happily for several years with love.   I asked Hand Me Down Dobes to keep us in mind if they get another little old lady dobie.
