Liberty “Libby” Grace Manson (1993-2010) was a wonderful dog. My dad, who didn’t used to be partial to dogs, said her photo should be next to the word “sweet” in the dictionary. My mom rescued Libby when she was running on the freeway as a puppy. She had mange and was incredibly sick when my mom found her, so she took her straight to the vet. We didn’t get to bring her home for a while but we could visit her, and soon we brought her home as the latest addition to the family… but Dad said we couldn’t keep her. She shed a lot, and we didn’t need a second dog. Well, one day, from my room I heard him talking to her, and that’s when I knew she was going to be a permanent fixture by my side through everything. She was terrified of thunder and would lay literally on top of you during storms. She loved rope toys, swimming, and getting on the couch even though it wasn’t allowed. She was a great companion, and I’ll always remember all the great times we had with her!


Job News!

I have accepted an offer from KLMA LLC! They do a lot of things. I will start work Monday as their new House Account Advertising Manager. I’m looking forward to working at a job I really wanted. I think Jules might miss me, but there’s a chance she can actually go to work with me. The office is extremely dog-friendly and there were multiple dogs there while I interviewed. If Jules continues to behave, I think I will be able to take her with me!

Cameron and I celebrated with a bottle of Merlot and the end of Weeds season 5. I went to a mall today for further celebration and to enjoy the rest of my free time. I love how much green is starting to pop up in stores. Spring colors are just more peppy and fun! Now there’s a Real Housewives of OC marathon from 2008 on that Jules and I are definitely enjoying… My book club read, Doctor Zhivago, should get here tomorrow so I can read away for the first meeting I’ll attend.
