We have been gone for a little over 4 months. I got a new job that kept me busy. However, I was forced to quit the job due to my boss treated me like dirt. I am back to old job and very happy! Now I can go home at lunch to let Lucky out! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I am also happy to be back on here and should finally have time to post. I missed everyone. I have a lot of work to do catching up on posts. Hehe. Lucky has been great. We ended up getting him a shock collar for Christmas because we could not have him out in the backyard for more than 5 minutes without him barking. I am proud to say we no longer use it. Lucky learned not to bark in the backyard from just a few uses. Now he can run and play without having to come in every few minutes from barking. It was a blessing. Lucky and our kitty, Tiger Lily, have become best of friends. They love to wrestle and chase each other around the house. They also love to get into mischief together. Lily will knock something off the counter and Lucky will chew it up. What a team! I will have to post pictures later of them! Oh and the biggest news, Shane and I got engaged over Christmas! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif We plan on Lucky being in our wedding.
