Today's Sun-Shiney Walk

Today I decided to give Lois Lane some one on one attention so we took a nice long walk down our street.  It was a bit chilly, but the sun was shining and it was great to finally get outside for a while. I think Lois was quite happy as well.

Good Morning!

L.B. was up and at em' early this morning - I foresee no need for an alarm clock in our future!  He did good all night in his crate and he's settling in very well!

Introducing "Spartacus" (Aka L.B. - Little Bit)

Today we picked up our second "foster" dog from the Humane Society. Spartacus (aka Sparky) is a 3 year old red chihuahua. His original owner had to surrender him due to severe health issues. He was then adopted again, but returned the next day because he would not eat or go to the bathroom. He obviously wasn't given enough time at his second "home", especially knowing how skittish chihuahua's can be. Being a second time owner surrender, his time was limited and he becomes a high kill risk in a shelter.  Via the powers of Facebook he was brought to our attention and we decided to give fostering a go again. (If you recall, our first foster was a failure and Giant Dawg, aka Buddy, has been with us ever since.)

So, I introduce you to Sparky! Who we now call L.B. - short for Little Bit. He didn't respond to any of his other names anyway.   As it turns out, we never really agreed that this one would be a foster  so he's now the newest addition to the Mesker clan.  ;)  We have also since figured out that he is a chihuahua mixed with dachshund, thus a Chiweenie - which is is other nickname.

Go Cards!

Today, on Valentine's Day, I'm going to my very first University of Louisville Cardinals basketball game!  C. found a good deal on decent tickets and the boys had no interest in going, so we went on a Valentine's Day date to the game! We started with drinks at bar just outside the Yum Center and had a great time!  The Cards won!

Dog or Cat?

Lois Lane sometimes thinks she's a cat - or rather she's just totally spoiled and she pretty much does what she wants.  Here she was laying on part of Jason's desk while we worked.  He figured he may as well make her comfy and put her blanket up there. Rotten.
