R0ndo Vertical

Today marks the day I adopted R0ndo the border collie as my second dog. Frieda had been gone a few weeks and I was in need of filling the void she left. R0ndo was found at Border Collie Rescue Northern California and my sister (who checked him out first) ordered me to come up and get him: he was -the- dog for me (she's expert about these things). As usual with things canine, she was spot-on: he became my dog on this day seven years ago.

This is the first picture (of many to follow) I took of him that day.

R0ndo had a laundry list of "issues", but he was smart and young and quickly became the companion I needed so much. He's Mr. D, Steady-Eddie, the Dude.

Because of the holiday and all the people cluttering up his favorite places, we'll do it up later this week. I'm thinking the dog beach at Huntington Beach (Apache doesn't like the beach, so it'll just be R0ndo and I- an extra plus for him). Ironically, his physical age has caught up to mine. But he's in -far- better shape!

R0NDO DAY!

One of the best days, ever. Goofy border collie pup and doofy asian guy. Match made in heaven. Or the Soupy Sales Show. Either.

11-11-11 is not just a field day for insipid marketing, it's also R0ndo's adoption day! This will mark our 6th happy year together. I'm not really sure what to do: he would be equally happy with an all-day hike in the mountains or snoozing with me on the couch and a regular dogwalk. He's like that. Still, it gives us something to celebrate and remember. Maybe I'll give him a meaty bone and lock Apache in the house.

Also remembering Frieda by dog-sitting a friend's very old husky. It was almost like she was here again. Sigh.

On a wholly non-sequitur note, I love it when the internet works like I imagine it should. I was asking at work if anyone knew of any abandoned airfields out in the Mojave that we could shoot some footage at. Someone googled around and came up with "Abandoned & Little Known Airfields: California: Mojave Area" . Teh Internets is such a vast repository of eclectic information. It still feels like sci-fi!
