Repeat: Timing Belt or Siberian Husky?


This entry is a repeat of one that I posted 2 years ago and a year before that.

On Sunday of Memorial Day weekend in 1999, my Human was driving her car around noon and the timing belt broke.

On Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in 2000, my Human decided that Lex needed a friend. She went to the local animal shelter. She originally thought that she wanted to get a female, but none of them appealed to her. She then saw a dog labeled "Cochise." She liked him a lot, so she adopted him. Cochise became Misha Meep. (Below is Meepie's first photo after he came home.)

One year later on Memorial Day weekend 2001, my Human went to the local Farmer's Market and the animal shelter had an information booth. The woman who had handled Meep's adoption was working. My Human thanked her for helping out with Meepie. The woman said that the shelter had a red husky that they were calling Blaze. My Human decided to go over to "look" at the husky and to get information to help find him a home. She visited several times. No one was adopting Blaze, so my Human decided that if he was still there on Wednesday, she would adopt him. He was still there, so on Friday Fargo North Dogkota became a member of the family. (Below is the first photo of Fargo.)

My Human did not get a new Husky during Memorial Day weekend 2002. But that Sunday afternoon around noon her timing belt broke. This was especially stupid because her car had a rebuilt engine put in on the previous Thursday, but the mechanics put the used timing belt on her engine.

Since then my Human has not had to replace any timing belts and she has not added any Huskies during Memorial Day weekend. Now she tries not to drive anywhere at noon on the Sunday before Memorial Day.

Getting Along

I get along with Rooie. She likes to rough house.

But you can tell that I'm not at all impressed with what Meepie is telling me.

For Marigold: Meet The Neighbors!

My good friend Marigold wanted to know what type of camera my Human got. It's a Sony Alpha 200 Digital SLR. She got it and a couple of zoom lenses. In honor of Marigold, here's some pictures of some of our next door neighbors.

New Camera

So my Human bought a new camera. Unfortunately the weather has not cooperated. It's been raining. So, she hasn't taken as many photographs as she'd like. She only took 3 of me so far!

Brak & Me

My Human has been sad the last couple days because of the death of a friend. I decided to bring a smile to her face by posing for a picture with Brak.
