Well, I'm behind on work again so today's post is going to have to be on the shorter side. As you can see with the weigh-in the weight is still going the right direction. I didn't work out this morning since I'm running the 5k on Sunday and I don't want to be sore for it. I will still eat right of course, and try to walk a bit more today to make up for not working out.
In other news, Liz and I have adopted a dog. Her name is Bella and she is a 6-8 year old St Bernard.
Her story is this:
She was abused and neglected all her life, and used just to produce puppies. Over the summer Bella was pregnant again and gave birth to 8 puppies. The owner for whatever reason decided he did not want to deal with it because he was going out of town that week, so he called the local pet adoption and asked them if they wanted to adopt Bella and 8 puppies, otherwise he was going to shoot them in an hour....
When Mary from the Pet Adoption place got Bella and the babies they were in bad shape. Bella was 60 pounds underweight and the babies were covered in feces. 4 of the puppies didn't make it. The rest were taken care of and eventually adopted. That left Bella. We saw her last week and got the story I just related to you. No one really wants to adopt an 8 year old dog who has maybe 4 good years left if they're lucky.
Needless to say Bella will be coming with us to our new home in a few weeks. We'll try to give her the best few years possible. I have to say I originally wanted to adopt a younger dog, but Bella deserves and needs our love more.
Anyhow, meet Bella:

Sorry for the crappy cell phone quality.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Still here, still working
