1. The new dog food we bought is a hit: Van Patten's Duck and Potato. It's almost better than TREATS, so that's really good.

2. A young woman moved into our building. We met her parents in the lobby this morning. They have a 5-year old Giant, at home in Michigan. We are looking forward to running into our new neighbor.

3. Madison is on the foaming yellow pills again, for tapeworm. Super yuck. She will be taking Comfortis again, to get rid of the evil biting fleas that carry the even more evil parasitic worms.

4. Madison swam the length of the lake. Really well.

5. IT is still in the tree.

Hi Madison! Your new food and neighbor sound good! Too bad your new toy is still in the tree - maybe a big iguana will climb up there and knock it down.

Happy Easter!

Sorry to hear your toy is still in the tree. Is there a cat you can chase up the tree to get it????

Good luck and happy weekend,
Jake and Fergi

We'd love to see you swimming. What a bummer your toy is still in the tree. If you had as much wind as we did last night, it might be out of the tree by now.

Happy Easter,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

How well Mom remembers those taunts from Junior High parties that started with a baseball game: "Don't pick her! She throws like a girl!!!!"

Lucky you, Madison. My mom won't take me to the lake here--she says it's too cold for her wimpy self.
