Moe and Clark

No, these aren't the names of Moe Howard's late-life attempt at a newer, more modernized slapstick, "The Two Stooges", characters. And yes, that first sentence is grammatically correct, you'll just need to read it a couple times.

Back to the point, these are the names of two little Japanese Mastiff / Lab mix puppies that are taking up "temporary" residence at the Kelley house. Julie and the kids have their hearts set on keeping Moe. I told her she can keep him if she cleans up after him. Everyone tells me to put my foot down, but really I could care less as long as someone other than I stays on top of hygiene, etc.

So we're testing this. We're fostering Moe and Clark. If things go well, we'll keep Moe. And it looks like my dad will be keeping Clark. It's kinda weird how Louie's passing happened at the same time as these two puppies came along. Coincidence? In my experience, there's no such thing as coincidence. At least so proclaimed a great man a long, long time ago.

Emma has really taken to the puppies. She spends hours in the kitchen with the puppies. And believe it or not, she's pretty good with them. I'm really impressed.

Speaking of impressed, and speaking of my dad... I don't think I've ever seen someone pick up a guitar from out of nowhere and get to where he is after a couple months. And believe me, I'm very hard to impress with anything musical. Within a year my dad will be coming over, plugging in, and rocking while I do a bit of drumming. Within 2 years he will surpass me after 20 years. That is, if he stays at it.

If "B" will post some pictures on her Facebook of Emma and the puppies, I'll post them here.

For those of you keeping count, that's 3 kids, 3 cats, and 3 dogs.
