We posted the lost dog notice on our homeowner's association's yahoo group. About 10:00 last night, we got a call from a neighbor on the other side of the subdivision that a strange dog was howling like crazy.
We searched the area as extensively as we could at 10:30pm, but couldn't locate him, even when we heard a couple of his howls.
About an hour later, another neighbor on the same street called us and told us that they were pretty sure they had our dog in their back yard. We rushed over with the crate, and sure enough, there he was, hidden under some bushes.
It took some cajoling and body blocking, but I did get him into the crate.

This boy is SO sweet. I don't think that there is an aggressive bone in his beautiful golden retriever body.
I sincerely hope that we are up to this task. This wonderful guy deserves a chance -- I believe he would someday make such an incredible companion animal for someone who could love and take care of him.

So, yesterday's picture was a lead in to this.
Caryn spent a week in Reno working with the United Animal Network helping to socialize the dogs from the Gabbs ranch in Nevada. You can read more about this story at the Best Friends Site or the UAN Blog.
Anyway, during her time in Reno, she developed a close relationship with this little golden mix. He's about 3 years old, and very, very skittish. By the time she came home, he hadn't found a foster yet, and so Caryn worked out a deal with a local rescue organization, Grateful Dogs, where they would sponsor us to foster this beautiful guy and try to socialize him to make him ready for adoption.
We went to Reno yesterday and pick him up. Today was spent in setting up his living area and getting him to a checkup at the vet. The next few weeks are going to be spent showing him lots of love and just trying to get him to trust people again.

On the way back from seeing Clayton this weekend in Davis, I dropped by the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks.
As I was leaving the parking lot, I saw this.
According to what I found online, this thing generates most of the power that the large casino/resort uses. I felt ok in losing that $20 in the slot machines after I saw that.

This is a new one for Ziggy.
I heard the cat crying this afternoon and turned to find her waiting at the door to get to the room with her cat box. I couldn't understand why she wouldn't just go the other way until I looked at her cat tree.
Ziggy had taken up residence in on one of the tiers of the tree, the little sneak...

Taken at the shore of the bay, right by my office. I love the rich sparseness of this picture. It is elegant without being overbearing. I think the patterns of the branches are fascinating, and I feel quite fortunate to have caught a snapshot of a hummingbird. I tried to catch him in flight, but I'm just not that good.

I chose this picture for the theme because it combines 2 of the big items people think about when they think of San Francisco -- fog and the Golden Gate Bridge.
