“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Moving day

Finally got cleared from light duty, meaning I can drive the work vehicles again and do all that stuff, which is nice. Saves gas & such on the personal car, and one less headache to deal with.

Which also meant that my partner could leave the work kennels & come stay at home with us starting today... So I brought him home this afternoon.

So far he is adjusting well - wants to know when we can go work again, as he is full of energy and bored after a couple of days off... That and figuring out his new digs, and deciding what he thinks.

Dakota - not so much. Less than pleased already to be sharing me with another animal when I came home smelling like a dog; actually bringing one home, into his yard was pretty much beyond the pale in his book. So he's spent his outside time trying to assert his authority through the fence separating the two (with Helix not really caring what this other dog thinks), and throwing a snit with me and pouting to let me know he's hurt.

Ah well, hopefully he will adjust soon.

The kids? Couldn't be thrilled more - what a shock!

LOL...My akitas will have no part of any other animals. The only other animal I've ever seen them tolerate/accept was my very old pekingnese. She was here first and she put them in their place for awhile until they got tired of it. One fight was enough for me to keep them separated after that out of fear they'd kill her on accident just due to size/age difference. She died three years ago and was almost 17.

I bet the kids are so excited! Good Luck!

Oh, boy, Dakota might want to rethink his position on Helix's presence. He may be family, but Helix is your partner, and that counts for a lot in the Big Picture!

Congrats on getting cleared for duty! Nice to know you've recovered!
