Happy New Year 2017

Happy New Year Everyone!
The last year had quite a few surprises, and one of them was that we got the new family member Kira, a rescue Doberman girl. There have been two blog posts about Kira and her siblings. Originally named Lilly, she is now 9+ month old, and pretty much grown up. Here is a recent picture showing her with Skylar.  Kira's siblings Princess and Elsa found adopter families.
We are looking forward to 2017, and wish everyone a good time.

Fostering Puppies - Update

The three puppies grow up rapidly. They got their own WWW site to keep track of things, and they got friendly with Skylar the Doberman (and vice versa). Pictures from the weekend are below.

Fostering Three Puppies

We took the step and volunteered for foster three Doberman puppies... these are three sweet girls, four weeks old, in the meantime five and a half. They are called Elsa (red), Princess and Lilly.

While they are really adorable, there is a lot of work involved. So if you want to get a puppy, be sure to talk to people who have done it to know what you are getting yourself into. But enough of the talk, here are some pictures.

RIP Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman passed away at age 69. His recent fame came with the Harry Potter movies, but my best memory will always be his role in Galaxy Quest, a grossly undervalued movie, where he joined a great cast. The famous quote, which he perhaps uttered a half dozen times with a wide range of meanings in the scenes context was "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Worvan, you shall be avenged. " I saw it today in various cuts on YouTube, hilarious, despite the occasion.

RIP David Bowie

Just a short while ago it was announced that David Bowie passed away, at age 69. With no doubt, he was one of the most charismatic people out there. My early memory other than his music is actually associated to the movie Labyrinth from 1986, where he played the Goblin King. There is no need to list the music at this place - I will remember these for a long time to come.

Skylar the Doberman swimming in the water

We are now going to Fiesta Island from time to time, and Skylar the Doberman is happily going into the water, despite rather cold weather. Below is a video capture that shows him nearly swimming, I like to think that he lost touch to the ground for a second or two.

 

The YouTube video also features Google's new Donate card, it's popping up at supported devices around second 15. I picked the Southern California "Dobies and Little Paws Rescue" in Fillmore, CA, a little north of Los Angeles. While Skylar has no known relation to that organization, we went there once to looks for a companion. Since it's the season, watch it and donate if you feel like it, or do other good things :-)

My Very Own Blood Moon Picture

OK, it's a little fuzzy, but it is my very own Blood Moon Picture.
