Had a sleepover last Saturday. |
Sister does transports for a rescue and on occasion they'll ask her to take a dog for the night. Of course I had to go over to see the arrival, a really sweet blue eyed Husky boy. Plan was for him to stay at her house but the difficult part was trying to integrate him. Her more neurotic Husky went kinda nuts, making all sorts of horrific noise, and the poor boy was also not happy about being confined to a crate, so he was making noise as well. For the sake of peace, both with dogs and hubby who had early work the next day, I offered to take him home. Presented it to brother as something that was going to happen and kept him in my room.
He was a DOLL. Only time he fussed was when I was eating ice cream, he seemed to think he should be having some too. He made niece melt with his constant offering of a paw to be shaken. He gave kisses and seemed to like hugs and affection. Sniffed around stuff but didn't really disturb anything. He pulled when I took him for walks but I haven't done it enough to know how to keep him in control so I just went with it. And laid down on the floor to sleep with a fuss. He was pretty much the perfect intro Husky, easy going, affectionate, and seemed low maintenance, plus really adaptable. He wasn't shy at all with any of us. He will make someone a really good dog and of course I wish a bit I was that someone lol. He's been bounced around a couple different homes and yet doesn't really seem affected by it.
And now Sister has the plague from her idiot husband, who's been wandering around the house coughing up a storm for several days. Flu and everything. SIGH. Just at a time when she's got a bunch of work to get done, of course. Well, it's gonna have to wait a couple days for her to recover.
Saw Deadpool over the weekend. Liked it, it was funny, and I'd definitely get it on DVD. Only problem is that the promos have given away some of the fun bits so by the time I got to see the whole thing, they weren't quite as funny, since I'd already seen them over and over lol. I was pretty sure Ryan Reynolds would do a much better job at this than he did with Green Lantern, since Deadpool seems to fit his personality better.
