My mom is about to get one of these puppies, or one of their siblings--all I know for sure is that it will be a yellow male, and his name is Bart--to raise for Canine Companions for Independence. I think he's arriving at the CCI branch in central Ohio this Friday.
By the way, Haloscan is having some serious issues today. No idea what the problem is, but no, you weren't imagining it.
Update: In fact, I have now tried about a half dozen times to post a comment saying "New thread", to no avail. Anyway, I tried.
Another update--I've gone ahead and made a Blogger comment thread for this post, since Haloscan is currently not working here, nor is it working at Americablog, which also uses Haloscan commenting.
Good night, everyone.
