Let's all celebrate by gnawing on a lamb leg

Happy New Year everyone. We took a holiday break from blogging to give the family time to recover from yet another round of colds. Viruses have not been kind to us this winter, especially me. I was sick 3 times this season. Personally, I blame reckless sick people boarding BART and coughing on me. I have no proof of this, but I suppose I should be grateful I haven't brought home bedbugs or lice. If colds and flu are the worst of it, I suppose I should be thankful (but really I'm not.)

This did give me a chance to buy and setup my new computer as the last one was 6 years old. I bought it around the same time we brought Shelby home! Unlike Shelby, the computer was pretty darn obsolete, and it would take a mere youtube video to freak it out.

So there you have it. My first post on the new computer. w00t!

As for New Years, you can probably guess that it was pretty low key. Steven had recovered by then but Vin and I were still sick. Shelby probably had the best New Years since she got this gigantic lamb bone to gnaw on. She was busy for hours! When we gave it to her, there was a decent amount of meat on it. It was totally clean by the time we went to bed. (Note to self. Shelby stinks of lamb for days after eating one of these things.)

Leg o Lamb

We watched the ball drop in NY at 9pm and promptly fell asleep until Shelby started barking at midnight when the local fireworks started exploding in the sky. Vin was so tired, he didn't even notice Shelby barking.

So here's to 2010. It'll probably be June before I start getting used to writing that year on my checks. In the meantime, here's hoping everyone health and happiness in the coming months. And remember, if you give your pug a lamb leg, stock up on the doggie shampoo.

Dear Winnie and Family, wishing you a healthier 2010 and no more viruses or germs on public transportation. People should be thoughtful and take precautions if they are sick so as not to spread germs. Shelby really went to town with that big bone!

Dear Shelby and family,

I am so sorry to hear about your illinesses.
I am sure you were a lot of support for your human family.

I am so happy you recieved your lamb bone.
It was some very important pug business that you took care of in a very timely manner. You understand doggy business and JUST DO IT.
