I had a big weekend. I decided to take Jake to Petsmart in Tualatin to meet a potential new sister through the Oregon Dog Rescue. The dog I fell in love with on their website, Tuna, ended up not being a big fan of Jake. The volunteers were very nice and let Jake meet dog after dog, just to see if he clicked with one. He did...
His name was Buster and he was rescued from a high-kill shelter in California where he was on death row. Jake pounced on him right away and I figured that meant we should take him home. So we did.
I renamed him Ralph after about a million attempts (from Andre to Stanley to Ramsey to Ozzy... ). He seems like a Ralph.
Anyway. My birding might slow down a bit until I master the art of holding two leashes and a camera... But there's always window birding... I finally got a Downy Woodpecker on my suet feeder! No photo though, I was in my car about to leave when I saw it, unfortunately. Lots of juncos around too. And my flicker. That's about it... Might have to start trying to ID the gulls my neighbor feeds!
