Old Pics

Since I still haven't replaced or fixed our camera, I am recycling some old ones. I do not know if or when the camera thing will happen. Our Insta-Hot went out and ruined a little part of our wood floor. Having the Insta-Hot replaced was about the same amount of money as a new digital camera. We can't live without the Insta-Hot for French press coffee and tea.

Anyway, my puppy Apolo is acting just like a little kid. He sleeps in the family room where he has access to leather couches, pillows, rugs in the laundry room, and plenty of water. But lately, he has been waking us up at 3 and 4 in the morning with a little woof. He doesn't seem to want outside nor does he need water. All he wants is a hug---a hug and a kiss and then he goes back to sleep.

We have had so much wind and rain in the night for the last month that I think he may simply be scared. He has absolutely had enough---enough of the weather. Golden Retrievers usually start acting up when they are about 8 years old. They know they really will not get in trouble for anything by that point. They have perfected their mooching skills. Apolo is not quite 4 and I fear it has begun early.

We got him in May of 2002 not long after Apolo Ohno of Seattle had become the Winter Olympics super star--hence, the name.
