Please welcome the two newest Fooleryland characters, as of Tuesday night: Wally and Rilo. As long as Wally (4) and Rilo (3) adjust to their new home (which includes strange new scents like chicken, cat, cow, and wild stuff around the edges), they will be the newest family members here in Fooleryland. I'm pretty confident this is gonna work.
The girls and I drove an hour north on I-5 Tuesday to pick up the dogs from our new friends, Dez and Seth. We were approximately on time, until . . .
we blew a tire on the freeway. In the fast lane. This photo is deceiving because the traffic was fairly constant. That's never happened to me and I was so relieved to be towed to Les Schwab Tires (thank you, J&L Towing) that I happily shelled out over $100 for the new tire and free popcorn. But soon we were back on the road, and at Seth and Dez's cute house -- Wally and Rilo's house.
It was bittersweet, since I know how difficult it has been for them to rehome their beloved beagles, but life doesn't always work according to plan. We hope Wally and Rilo will be happy with us, and we'll certainly keep their first family connected with lots of photos and e-mails. Like these, taken last night:
More beagles to come in semi-regular Wally and Rilo posts!
