Moving again

Well, this has been a stressful. tumultuous couple of months.  We moved down to Emmett in May.  Didn't find work and Tom got accepted to grad school back in Moscow.  So, he moved back to live in student housing, which doesn't allow dogs.  Duffy and I moved in with my folks, who were kind enough to let us stay.

No luck finding work in Salem, nor back in Boise, so after 3 months of crashing at the folks' house, Tom and I rented an apartment in Moscow that allows pets.

Our new apartment - looks like a house and we have our own planting bed out front.

Recent Travels

First, a picture of Duffy on my desk.  He kept me company while I was working this spring.

Duffy went to Boise with us to scout out a place to live.

It ended up that we chose Emmett instead of Boise to rent an apartment.  Emmett is small and friendly and close to Boise, but it's not so busy and big.  Emmett is less of a shock for us after living for six years in Moscow.

So here we are in mid-May, with Duffy checking out the job we did with the moving truck.  Thanks to my great brother, Jeff, we got all of our stuff packed into the truck.  Duffy, Jeff and I rode in the car, while Tom drove the truck.  

Missing Oskar

We took Oskar to my folks' house to spend a few months while we lived temporarily in an apartment.  Of course, when we got there, Oskar escaped at the first chance and hasn't been seen since.  I'm hoping that he shows up once I get there next week and he sees our car regularly again.

Here's a picture from late February showing Oskar venturing out into the snow.  It shows just how deep the snow was this winter.  He spent the happiest winter ever outside this year, keeping warm with wood chips in his insulated Igloo dog house.
