Lucy is doing fairly well. She seems to be better able to compensate for her lameness and moves much better. We are very lucky that she doesn't mind the boots. In fact, she seems to like them. I must admit it is a bit strange to see her hair so long. We can trim inside her ears and her paw pads, but we can't do a "professional" trim. She enjoys getting brushed and that helps a lot.

Violet continues to learn and grow. She still has an attitude when things aren't going exactly her way, but that is typical for her age. She is a happy little girl, loves her animals and books. She also loves to color and has recently started holding the crayons properly.
I love the look on her face in this next photograph. She was busy coloring and her favorite cat, Sybil, walked into the room. Needless to say, she jumped right up to greet "meow."
Oh lookee! It's my favorite kitty.
Sybil was so named because she showed up on their doorstep while they were watching "Downton Abbey." Older folks assume she was named for the Sybil with multiple personalities. Violet simply adores her and plays gently with her.
Neil Gaiman gives us today's quote:
"Tweeting prolifically is the most easy thing in the world.
Tweeting prolifically is like somebody saying, 'Boy, you are a really good walker around.' It's really not that hard."
If you like college hoops this is a great time of year. Unless, of course, your team loses in the first round.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK, EVERYONE!
TALK TO PEOPLE IN PERSON,
IT'S BETTER THAN TWEETS.
