Suvi Loooooves Home Improvement

Suvi loves home improvement. She especially loves to help. And sometimes, when she feels we don't have enough to do, she creates new projects for re-wiring the cable jack, and drywall touch-ups...

the things that break our hearts

We're in Mexico this week. It's the first time for both of us, and we were prepared for paradise, and stray dogs. No matter how prepared you are though, it's still heartbreaking to see the homeless dogs. It's hard to know you can't save them all - especially when we can't even save all the ones we'd like to back home...

We met this guy while snorkeling on Cozumel, at a little shop on the side of the road. We weren't sure if he was owned, or just hanging out for the day, but he was beautiful!

Of course, it makes us miss our pooches. Beyond that, though, it reminded me of India - where there are also an incredible number of strays - unfortunately not all of them were as well-fed as the few we've seen so far in Mexico. I was in India a few years ago, and probably took more photos of the dogs than I did the scenery. I bought dog treats that I carried around in my pocket for weeks - not a single dog would eat them, though. They must eat so much human scrap food, that they were unsure of the actual dog food I was trying to share with them. I was so bummed, but it also told me they weren't in such bad shape, if they could be choosy.

It made me wish for the ability and opportunity to start a spay/neuter organization in India.

Ramsey the Ninja

Chad recently posted a video of Ramsey playing Ninja. I've captured some still shots of her ninja moves that I thought might be fun to share. I love that she and Chad have their own special stalking game - one that Ramsey started doing naturally as a puppy - and that Chad can now get her to play by making a particular pretend-growly face at her...

(I'm preeeettty sure Chad is not going to be happy with me for posting the face he makes to get Ramsey to stalk....whoopsie.)
