    Mine are great shredders too; occasionally I treat them to a box of tissues or roll of toilet paper...

    Mary your experience helps calm my nerves a bit! I will be most worried that something might happen while they are in the hold and will be sure to remind the flight attendants they are below when I get on. They were great on the one flight I've taken them on, to the UK in Feb.

    Actually the most stressful part really is simply buying a new house; if you are in a good market selling is not nearly so difficult except for having to keep the house clean (and clearing 7 animals from the premises for every viewing... ).

    At least the US system is more secure than the Irish where even if your bid is accepted there's no legally binding agreement until the contracts are signed when the keys are handed over so in a boom market the buyer is always at high risk of being what we call 'gazumped' (someone else makes a direct higher offer to the seller and the seller decides not to sell to you). The system badly needs changing for this and many other reasons; the buyer has little protection.

    Karlin -

    So sorry you have to deal with all this stress. But I'm excited you're coming out to California!!

    I've said it before, but I'll repeat -- let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do to help. I could even keep the dogs for a while! That would be tons of fun!

    Thanks for the kind thoughts!

    Here's a pic or two of Louie, the cavalier I went to see today. A really lovely dog in need of a stable home, some obedience training, and a diet!! My folks decided they would prefer a puppy, so I'll be helping to place this fellow in Ireland. He is so sweet, great with people and other dogs. A big boy too, I'd guess around 28 pounds or so; could stand to lose a few but would with some regular exercise. Great temperament all around.






    Very nice deep reds in his coat and lovely markings.
