Went by the house today to take care of stuff and brought Wally along, figuring he'd enjoy the chance to sniff the old grass and stuff.

Boy did he ever. He immediately wanted to go sit on the porch that I've taught him to do so many times. And then I took him to the fields we ran on and practiced our ball catching and looooong distance recall and retrieving and he was just so intense. Charging at me like he loves to do when I call for a front from 90 feet away and just seeing how BIG his eyes were - like he just got done eating 50 raw steaks. He would literally jump up from the sit when I cued finish like we used to practice when doing this.

He was having so much fun and so excited. He remembered all his p-mail spots and was checking out the grounds and re-marking his spots. So funny he remembered them all like we came there yesterday.

Was so great to see him cutting loose and giving me his full speed outside since there's OPEN GRASS to actually run around on. For a small dog, he needs a lot of space now because of all the walking and running he's done. He eats up ground almost like he's big and two strides and he's through the strips of grass around here.

Are you getting back in the house down the road or is that a dead issue.
Yeah, it's being restored (read, basically rebuilt).

Probably looking at 3-4 months.

Fingers crossed and good thoughts that you and the Wally get home 3 months versus 4 months, either way 2012 got to be a better year for you.

Chicago area there was fire yesterday and 2 dogs died and the son tried to get them out and burned hand trying it was just too hot.

Yeah, thank goodness Wally had the good sense to hang out in my room (in the basement so the heat rose up of course).

He knew where the cool air was and was like...I don't know about that stuff up there, I'll stay here and wait.

I know my mom would have been crushed if anything had happened to Wally.
