Joyous Solstice

I feel rotten. Today when I got home, I found a lady who lives across the street with her own dog (a lovely brindle pit bull called Shorty) and a little mix who, I swear, looked EXACTLY like Bo, only tiny. I fell in love. She told me it was a stray, and she wasn't sure what she was going to do with it. I, holding this squirming bundle, had already fallen in love and said since we had a yard, we'd love to keep it until she could find the owner. Well, I put "Mini Bo" into Bo's crate at first, and he appeared to be a pretty good little dog, then took him out with Bo and watched them play for a while -- they got along really well, Bo and his own "Mini-Me" -- and I took my eyes off them for a few minutes. Mini-Bo took the chance, got out of the gap in our fence, and vanished.

I feel horrible. I said I'd take care of him, and I let him escape. He was just a tiny little thing, and now I'll worry. Plus, I REALLY liked him. Not like we really could have kept him, but still... *sigh* I should have ignored his whining and left him in the crate until I made sure the yard was safe for a little dog.

I spent some time this weekend ripping the rest of my Christmas CDs and finishing the rebuild of my music library, and realized I don't know where I got Santa Claus and His Old Lady, 'cause I don't seem to have it anymore. Phoo. Also, there's a couple of discs my current computer refuses to read; I may have to try to rip them on the old machine and copy the files over.

Happy Solstice to everyone.

Aww, I'm sorry the little dog escaped you. Maybe he won't go too far, and you'll be able to find him again.

We walked Bo around and around the block, but didn't find him -- I hope he went to his home; he was wearing a cute little Christmas sweater and a collar (no tags, just a bell).

I hope.

Oh, I hope so, too.

Did you go out looking for Mini-Bo? He might come back, too, if he enjoyed playing with Bo, V1. Good luck.

Yes, we walked Bo around and around the block, up and down, and didn't see him anywhere. I hope he found his way home -- he had a sweater and a collar (no tags). *crossed fingers*

I hope that Little Bo actually has a home and just likes to roam around.

You may have gotten the song from me. It's on a Dr. Demento CD I have somewhere.

Could be, since I never actually owned that CD (or I may have downloaded it once, but not from iTunes).

You mean "the vato with the hair on his jaws?" It's on that Dr. Demento CD. Nothing like stoners at Xmas. It's a family favorite.

"Mini Bo just probably went back home. Although I strongly disapprove of it, tons of dogs in our neighborhood run around after escaping from their yards. Scares the heck out of me (we have busy streets nearby) but what can you do? At least you tried to help him.

On a happier note, thanks to you & Barb for the delish goodies!

Made me sad. I hope he got home okay!
