Blondie was curled up on the porch this morning in Brandy's old spot. Brandy is the Chow we had for years.
Just to set the record straight, because I think there might have been some misunderstanding: the dog in the last entry is not Blondie. It's the star in "Because of Winn-Dixie" (a movie my granddaughters and I love watching together). Blondie is pictured in the entry before that. She's a very likable dog, obviously: the first stray I've ever had a notion to keep since I was a child. She has the bad habit of jumping up on people, but I don't think it'll be hard to break her of that. I won't be disappointed if someone claims her, but she's just too sweet-natured to dispose of.
Maybe I should have named her Stormy, because it's rained a lot, these past twenty-four hours. There's over 2 1/4 inches of rain in the gauge from yesterday, and it's coming down again.
