I know I’ve been a bad blogger lately, but it was crazy busy for me these past few months. I thought I’d have some time to relax and spend time with my family towards the tail end of this year, but that so did not happen! Life’s funny that way. Funny, as in sometimes I want to drop kick it in the nuts. LOL! Anyways, I’m currently in the Bay Area. I bravely insanely made the long drive with Ellie by myself yesterday in the pouring rain. Ellie did pretty well although she did have a little meltdown on the 152. Have you all been on the 152? There are NO EXITS! I kept shushing and driving and praying for an exit and one never came. I had to just pull over on the side of the highway and pull Ellie into the front seat with me and let her pretend the drive to calm her down. Then she had to push every single button possible on the wheel and dash. Then she pounded on the window and yelled at each of the cars that whooshed by us. Fun times!
Anyways, I have two engagement shoots in San Francisco, then I’m going to Las Vegas to celebrate my Aunt’s 70th birthday, and then will be spending the rest of the holidays back here in the Bay Area with my family. I’ll be back in the office January 4, 2010.
Someone asked about Akira and she’s doing good considering that she’s had to adjust to having a mobile baby afoot all the time. She’s pretty nonchalant with Ellie in that she’ll just lay there and watch Ellie crawl around. If Ellie gets within touching distance, Akira will swiftly move away. Akira’s always been more aloof that most dogs which I think is a common trait in Akitas. She likes to be nearby, but doesn’t want you hanging all over her. Like a cat. We have a 50+ lb cat-dog. But our cat dog is soon to be semi famous. A book publisher purchased one of my photos of Akira as a puppy for their book cover. Cool, huh?
