Fake cheese eating dog

It has been ten days since my last post. Louise was a bit confused on Tuesday as she still couldn't find Greg or Viearn, so she tended to sleep at my desk a lot. Or rather, she slept on Greg's desk by my computer, sometimes getting a bit carried away, kicking over the phone receiver, etc. These are things a dog has to do sometimes to just get comfortable.

The weather around here is slowly warming up. I notice it a lot as I ride my bike in the mornings and still need several layers and gloves to stay warm. The only time Louise seems to mind is when the rain is coming down hard. Luckily here in Vancouver, that's not an issue very often.

Of course, that means the flowers are starting to bloom around here and that means I have to be on my guard as we go for our walks. Louise just LOVES to trample fresh flowers. I don't know why, but I usually have to be careful to steer her away from them and hopefully point her toward some fresh grass instead. I am mostly successful at this.

Oh yeah - last night we tried Sheese for the first time! Now, I'm no vegan, or even vegetarian. My wife says we are 'flexitarians' because we are flexible. The bottom line is I'll have a cheeseburger one day and grilled tofu with salad the next. My point is this: I like cheese - a lot. I can say that this Sheese product was the most cheese-like of the lot. We have tried many disappointments in this area so I was happy to try something that was this convincing. As it turns out, Holly dropped a small piece on the floor as she was passing me a cracker and sheese. This stuff is expensive so we knew we weren't going to waste it. Louise was only to happy to come to the rescue and she affirmed that sheese is good! It all happened so fast that I wasn't able to get a good photo though, so you will just have to trust me when I say our dog ate it. At least it wasn't homework.
