    It's somewhat difficult to keyboard with 50 pounds of APBT in my lap.

    But I'm SO not telling her to get down <3

    Wow, I never realized the effect stripping a dogs under coat can have. Baloo was shedding a lot and looking scraggly, so I took my furminator to him, got enough fur to make a whole 'nother dog and now he looks AWESOME.

    We do in my parent's neighborhood. LOL New neighbors get a knock on the door and we introduce ourselves. Or, at the very least, if we see them out in the yard we say hi and introduce ourselves.

    I did meet (sort of) the new neighbor kitty-corner across the street. He has two dogs and they were barking at Tallulah and me as we started off on a walk. He was almost panicked -- until he saw Tallulah. He's used to people having a bad reaction to his two.

    I thought he was going to faint from relief when he saw Tallulah and I commented that they were just doing what good dogs are supposed to do.

    And when I asked him if they were AmBullies :rofl1: They are ;)

    Nice to have more Bully people in the neighborhood.

    This is going to be a back and forth post:

    Good: was out with some friends, including the guy I just started seeing, having some sushi and just an all-around good time.

    Bad: roommate texts me that Sawyer took off when he let him out to pee and he'd been looking for him for 20 minutes to no avail. Visions of Sawyer darting onto the main road and getting hit, or getting into a fight with one of the coyote packs around start flashing through my head. I never have his collar on when we're home because of the tag jingle, so of someone found him, they'd have no way of contacting me. The lights were against me and I was getting more and more agitated.

    Good: Suddenly the roommate calls me to say he found Sawyer and was heading back home!

    Bad: turns out Sawyer took off because my roommate just let him out and then went back inside. We're in a condo with no fenced yard and there are cats that like to roam free. I may have had a few choice words to say...

    Good: My dog was back home and I was able to go back and finish out my night.

    >_<

    Roommate still living?

    Maybe roommate pulled that stunt on purpose to disrupt your night?

    Been wondering where you went to! Haven't seen you around a lot.

    Glad Sawyer is okay!
    I have the same question as Renee.

    Roasting marshmallows over a bonfire in the middle of November? I will not complain about this.

    Having my 50lb "lap dog" climb onto my lawn chair to snuggle with me in front of the fire? Will not complain about that, either.

    I'm not even kidding--our next door neighbors played Achy Breaky Heart six times at their party last night.

    That's not super relevant, though.

    But they are delicious.

    So far, yes, he's still alive, mostly since he did go out and find him instead of just telling me and not doing anything about it.

    The thought did cross my mind about it being deliberate.
