A new family member

I got some great news the other day from my sister and her husband; I’m going to be an uncle! Ok, maybe not really but close enough for now. They’re getting a puppy from the rescue league where I volunteer. The other weekend I’d been talking up a sweet Weimaraner named Greta that is by far my favorite current dog there right now. The next thing I knew the two of them were talking about her and possibly getting her. When they came to see her they decided she was too big and fell for a little black lab mix puppy instead.

The puppies temperament reminds me a lot of my dog when I was a kid and I think she’ll turn out to be just as great a dog. Sunday I’m planning on riding my bike up to Laurel to visit the new pup in her new home. Can’t wait till they need me to dog sit.

In other news tonight is the second W@W race and I’ve decided to take a different approach to my transportation option. I’m still going to head out on the metro around 3:30 but this time I’ve got a flexcar reserved from 4 to 8 which I’ll get at the West Falls Church metro and I’ll drive the 10 miles down the turnpike to the park. It could end up being a really bad idea, but at least this time I’ll be able to have a beer after the race…

I didn't know you volunteer at a rescue! So cool!

Congrats on being an Uncle. How's the Clavicle?

I've been riding like crazy. Signed up for the Annapolis Tri. Ever think of doing that one? It's in Sept.
