8/28 Cookie

Yep, that's her name. She is absolutely adorable! Such a sweetheart and so loving. Or maybe that was the anesthetic. :)

She and Quincy had a great time in the back of the SUV though, and I think they'll be great friends--sisters even.

Unfortunately neither one of them are home with me. I worked until just a little while ago. My boss is in town and we had lots of meetings. So Q is spending two nights at Doggy Day Care, and Cookie is staying at the vet's. She's got to be kept quiet for 7-10 days, and Doggy Day Care would definitely rip out her stitches. She'll get to go there during the day beginning next week.

For now, I'm beat. I have another long day tomorrow. Have to get up at 4 because we're going to a sunrise service in in Waveland, MS. Tomorrow is the second anniversary of Katrina. And Waveland is the first place Katrina hit in Mississippi. Waveland, Bay St. Louis, and Pass Christian are still virtually leveled in many spots. It could have happened yesterday by the looks of things. So sad. So much to be done. I'll report back on the service.

The media is criticizing the government for not doing enough after Katrina. Didn't any of the people affected have insurance?

I think you should have named her Missy after the state, sounds like she will be a bundle

Omigod, anonymous, read the papers. The insurance companies didn't pay. One said, "You have flood insurance but the damage was done by wind." Another said, "You have wind insurance but the damage was done by flood." It's injustice of the highest caliber.

Jane, what a good idea. Too bad it's too late. The little one is Cookie in my mind, and I'm much too old to remember another name. :)

you could still change it, I really like it, but it is your dog

I remember that you're also the one who didn't like the name Sunday and tried to call my dog Sunny. :) Do you remember that? Funny.
