We had to give our dog away today

Sweet Cooper.

We can't take Cooper along on this move. We gave him to a great family with two kids. The girl is older and the boy younger, but they are about Alex and Cyan's age and I think he will do just fine with them.

I am really sad we had to give him up, but I think he will be fine. Cyan on the other hand, may not recover very well. She is having a really hard time with it.

Squirrels in the walls!

Meet Buster:

I know this is a horrible picture of me, but I found this squirrel in my wall today! There is a whole family of them living in the attic. I have heard them for a while, but thought they would just go away. The other day they started coming down the walls and one of them got stuck above the heater vent in the livingroom.

Taio and Cooper have spent hours there, listening to them scratch and move around. Watching intently. That is how I found Buster... Cooper was freaking out next to the vent. Such a good dog!

The first one we found (in these pictures) was such a baby that I thought for sure he had gotten lost, but one by one, they have come down. Now three of them I have taken out with my leather gardening gloves on and put them back outside. I wonder how Aunt Barb is going to deal with this.
