Halloween Dinner

My grandparents had a Halloween dinner party at their house this weekend. I haven't been to one of their dinners since I was really little, and I was super excited! Everyone goes dressed up, and then the menu for dinner has things like toad tongue, mud balls, worms and bat's blood on it. It is so much fun!
Batman and I went dressed as Batman and Robin. I think our costumes were GREAT!

Sick and Cuddly

Wednesday I stayed home sick from work. And Batman loved it! He spent the whole day curled up on the couch with me. On days when you feel like crap, it's wonderful to have the unconditional love of your puppy to put a smile on your face.

Silly Puppy

My little Batman is so funny! He lays like a frog, and now he sits like a person! Check him out sitting on his butt with his legs splayed out in front of him! Too funny!

K-9 ResQ Update

I went to the KS K-9 ResQ meeting Friday night, and then I volunteered on Saturday. The 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month, K-9 ResQ shows some of their adoptable dogs at the Petcos and PetSmarts in town. I went to PetSmart with some volunteers and three dogs. I talked to a couple of the fosters while there, and I think it's something I want to do. I've gotten a couple e-mails from people in the group telling me about how much they love fostering dogs, and how rewarding it is. I talked to Alex, and he agreed to go to a fostering information meeting with me.

K-9 ResQ

Tonight I'm going to my first meeting with Kansas K-9 ResQ and I'm very excited. They are a local group that saves animals from shelters and the human society that are going to be killed. Their volunteers foster the dogs and get them vet care, socialize them and help potty train them. When the dogs are healthy and ready, K-9 ResQ finds a home for them.
I'm excited to get involved, but I'm also worried. I know I'm going to love some of the dogs and get attached. And probably beg Alex to let me keep some. (Which he will say "no" to, as he should.) Because of this, I've told them I won't be able to foster any dogs, but I'm happy to help out with anything I can. Once a month they bring adoptable dogs to the PetCos and PetSmarts in town so people can fall in love with the dogs and want to save them. Tomorrow is one of the days they're doing this, and I'm hoping I can help out!

Sleeping Baby

Batman and I have been super busy lately. We are buying a house! That's right, Batman and I are about to be home-owners! We're moving in October 28, and there is a TON of stuff to do before we can move! Yesterday, I got the inspection done on the home, and got all the electric, water, internet, trash and other crazy stuff set up for us.
Needless to say, I was exhausted last night. I enjoyed a nice, quiet evening with my baby. That, of course, means me laying on the couch watching TV, and Batman sleeping next to me. It was wonderful.
