Several Non-Puppy Things

To start... have you seen the reports of the loose puppy at La Guardia? Marna told me about it and I "asked." A Rhodesian Ridgeback pup got out of its crate while being loaded on a plane. Since animals are the last loaded, the plane was already full of people, including the pup's owners. It took 10 minutes... and the pup's human mom coming after it... to catch Byrdie. The reports all say she weighs 30 pounds but the photos show a much larger dog. Rhodies are NOT small dogs! Now, MY question... why was the gate to her crate not secured with plastic ties like they have to be when an animal is shipped? The pups WAS traveling with her owners, but she was going as excess baggage because of her size and that means the same cargo rules. Happily, she is safe and sound and no human was hurt in the process.

Moving blog
I am NOT a google fan. In fact, I'm the opposite. But until recently, I was not unhappy with the blog which is hosted by google. However, after switching... updating... to the new format, I am ready to pull my hair out. Sorry, but I do not think any of these so called "improvements" that google (and yahoo) are prone to add to anyone's internet experience. It takes MINUTES for the blog to load whenever I want to post something and adding photos has become a minor nightmare. So I'm researching other blog hosts. It will be a slow process because I may have to copy and paste all the previous posts... and I think there are more than 500 of them. If that proves too tedious, I might have to just abandon the old stuff, but we'll see. After all, what else do I have to do?
