two days after that, we went to see some dogs that were up for adoption. we ended up bringing them home with us and moving into the house almost three weeks earlier than planned.
there was this handsome guy for my handsome guy:
and this silly girl for this silly girl:
well, "moving in" = bringing a futon over and sleeping on the floor because actual moving-in weekend with furniture and such wasn't until almost three weeks later. (the sad part of the story is that my kitty kuan yin got to see very little of me during that time because she stayed at our apartment a block away so as not to be subjected to the dogs and too much change so quickly. mean but beloved old girl died two years later, to the day, from dog-adoption day. i just realized that and am sad all over again.)
kuan yin, in the old apartment:
LET ME GO I HATE AFFECTION
and yet i must sit on you at all times.
i feel the need to commemorate these special dates somehow, but we just ordered in *last* night.
