More doggy fun.

August 15, 2008

I flew into San Diego, late afternoon on Wednesday. AnnMarie and Thomas picked me up from the airport. It has been great to be back in the land of sun and palm trees! The weather has been perfect, around 80s. Their condo is not even a block from the ocean, so it’s amazing to walk up and have an incredible view of the sail boats, surfers and the sun shimmering down on the water. I’m sitting by the small swimming pool right now – this is the life! They have 3 dogs – Rita, outgoing chiuaua/corgi mix; Rat, timid terrier mix (Hurricane Katrina rescue); and Albert, dainty papillon (found on the street). Rita is confident and looks like she speaks Spanish, Rat has to walk behind everyone otherwise she scoots sideways with her tail between her legs, and Albert marches forward with his legs outstretched and hops a bit when excited. They’re all so unique. They’ve warmed up to me, so I love hanging out with them. Oh yes, and hanging out with AnnMarie and Thomas. Hehe!

    Please come back whenever you can !! I had so much fun meeting Luann and Chi-they are cool people. I really think that Luann is very talented-she makes awesome jewelery, and it’s priced great, she has her stuff on the etsy website. Last night I got my first wetsuit, I can’t wait to try it in the ocean-I’m so jealous that you guys(you&Luann)got to take surf lessons-I totally am gonna take lessons,I was thinking about doing it where you guys did, because you seemed very pleased with your lesson. I just don’t know if I’ll do it this year, or wait until the beginning of next summer-so I have the whole summer to practice. I’m not sure just how warm my wetsuit will keep me, it is a 3/2-(the thickness of the suit, not the size-I wish though!) If I feel like I can get enough time in the water to practice, maybe I’ll squeeze in a lesson or 2 this season ?!

    Oh yeah, those 3 dogs are so f*cking cute, I can hardly stand it !! I so love them to pieces. They are all 3 crashed out right now, the life of a dog- they really have it figured out!! But we don’t do too bad ourselves, I am addicted to naps too! They love it here in Ocean Beach(SanDiego), they get to go on tons of walks, and everyone stops to pet them and tell them how cute they are-who wouldn’t love that!! They go on walks in Arizona, but not as many in the summer(too hot for their sweet little cute feet)-they have a doggie door in AZ so momma & daddy get to sleep in, but in Ocean Beach we get woken up around 6am- when we all get outside and walk to the ocean it’s all worth it!!! I love it here !! The thing is, I also love it in AZ –I think I’m livin’ the dream, I said that to this man one time and he said,” honey, if you think you are, then you are” I think he’s right!!
