Okay. Kinda sleepy, but that will pass eventually.

Wish the damned smoke would go away, though.

It's finally getting better here in San Jose, CA. We have one active wildfire to the south of us and the prevailing winds are from the N-NW, so that's the only thing adding a little smoke around here. I checked the air quality this morning and it dipped below 150, so I opened all the doors and windows a bit.

Hope everyone in the Pacific Northwest gets the same relief soon!

Me too!

There's a chance of rain later this week, which would really help matters if it does.

Waylon was a very sad boy when we adopted him. Didn't trust me, hid from the kids, really only let Ms. H touch him. Now he whimpers happily when he sees me get off the train.  And, well, he tolerates the kids.

Hi Waylon!

How long did it take for him to realize you were his new family and he had nothing to fear?

Ugh, my cats only destroyed one pair of earphones. So glad they never developed a cord-chewing habit. My place has miles and miles of stuff crammed behind the associated electronics.

Hi Waylon!

Geez, I don't know. A month? six months? He's very distrustful of adult males.  So it took some time for him to warm up to me. Also, I suspect he may not see well.  Occasionally if I came home late he would growl at me until I got close enough for him to smell me.  But I take him on long walks, which he loves, and I've slowly gained his trust, to where if I trip and bump into him, he doesn't cower.  And we play a lot, and he's very good at playing rough but not too rough.  He loves getting batted around the head for some reason.

Also I think he just assumed Ms. H was the alpha for a long time.  He would listen to her, but ignore me about half the time (and he always ignores the kids, lol).  But then she and I had an argument, which was sort of out of character for us, where I had to put my foot down about something, and all of a sudden he decide I was in charge.  Even though our relationship is pretty collaborative.

Anyway, we've had him for a year and a half, and he's always been attached to Ms. H, but he's really become my buddy this summer.  And two of my kids who are with their mom most of the time, he really adores, especially since we didn't see them for a couple months during lockdown.  And now the one just dotes on him, and he soaks it all up.  Plus she buys him icecream cones sometimes.

That's cool. I've had five dogs in my life, but never adopted an adult dog. We got them all as puppies, so I don't know what that's like.

When we first adopted 90-lb. gentle giant Nicky, you could not pet his head without him flinching, and he cowered whenever someone raised a Chuckit at the dog park. Nonetheless, he was the world's sweetest creature and we did our best to fill his golden years with idyllic beach walks and treats. Here's hoping karma found his previous owners, and hats off to people who take in pets with challenges.
