How was your Thanksgiving? I had a great Thanksgiving dinner at Naomi’s parents’ house and we were even able to bring Little Bear! She had a good time running around and pooping and peeing where she wasn’t supposed to… Friday we went on a picnic/walk at Inspiration Point in Berkeley which was really nice until it started pouring rain, and then it was still pretty nice, just very wet. The decision to not bring rain jackets was not a wise one. Saturday morning, Domi and Larry came over for brunch, and then I joined them at the Dickens Fair which was…interesting. There were lots of crafts and stuff, but the more fascinating part were the number of people who not only came in costume, but were also in-character the entire time. For example, at one point Larry sneezed, and a woman in costume told him “Bless you.” Then she turned to her companion and remarked that he might have The Plague. All with a British accent, of course. Later we met Yar, Jan, and Cliff for dinner at Mandalay, and I ate waaaay too much, which was pretty much the theme of the weekend. Sunday I went to a Crab Party at Helen’s house where she and Walter got a ridiculous amount of food from The Boiling Crab, which was delicious. Peter and Crystal also brought Duncan/Indy and I brought Little Bear, so she had her first playdate! At first she was a little scared of Duncan, but after we let them off leash they played really well together. It was basically a cute asplosion. You can see pics here.
Other than Thanksgiving break funtimes, not too much is going on. Little Bear has basically been taking up most of my time and energy, as expected. I enrolled her in a Puppy Kindergarten class which hopefully will help her be less crazy, and we’re taking her to a Puppy Playgroup on Sunday, which I’m looking forward to. Puppies everywhere!
