The parents have approved shipping Kaline early from Toronto! It may not be exactly on June 25, depending on the breeder's schedule, but it'll still be early! Freddie is over the moon and said she'll have me covered for the five or so hours on Saturday June 29 when I'm supposed to go to the Olympic men's gymnastics trials in San Jose. She has tons of great ideas already for things to which to expose the puppy. Exhibit A: Actual kiddie pool. (As opposed to Juno's enormous bed, nicknamed the kiddie-pool bed cause it's huge, rimmed and blue.)
Not that anyone cares but blogging may be out for a while—one of my training dogs slammed my hand in the car door by jumping on it while I was trying to open it. So typing is not fun right now.
