Wifey (then fiancée) freaked out cause I went out to get some groceries and didn't come back.

Unfortunately, I never caught her license plate. Woman was on the phone too. Hopefully, she didn't procreate, but that's probably not the case.

That would have made a helluva WAYWRN post! Unbelievable that she wouldn't stop. Just. Unbelievable.

Good reminder to ATGATT - better to sweat than bleed!

Plus, you don't get a lot of riding time in a city like Boston, especially since I'm out traveling during the week.

As far as dogs go, my wife and I have a Shepherd/Newfie mix -- we were told she was a Shepherd/Lab mix, but when she hit 100 lb in about 10 months, we figured something was up. Right now, at a little more than 14 months, she's about 140 lb and growing. The other dog is an American Eskimo/Husky mix. She's not as big, probably around 70 lb maybe? Thankfully, we don't think she's getting any bigger.

One thing, though -- both are long haired (one black, one white), and I spend a good amount on lint brushes.

Pics?

Here's the black one -- she's the shepherd/newfie mix. The first one is from when she was was about 7 months old, and the rest are relatively recent (around a year old). I do not really have any recent pictures of the white one -- the eskie/huskie mix -- other than as a puppy (since she's my wife's dog...). The winter pictures are from last winter. We were told she was about 7 weeks in these pictures, that was when we first got her.

Just so everybody's clear... This thread is MY attempt to summarize the WAYWRN thread a week at a time. What goes in is whatever strikes my fancy. BUT, it's mostly about the home runs. WAYWRN contains a lot of strikeouts, singles, and doubles (to continue with the baseball metaphor) and they don't/won't generally make the cut. The great and semi-great fits will get a shout-out as will the truly atrocious (sometimes) and the interesting diversions. The point is this: If some guy shows up a lot it's because his fits and pics are homeruns. I accept no remuneration and play no favorites. (But, while we're on the topic... Spoo, would it kill you to send me a spare PS once and a while? Huh? Would it?)

Thanks, Spoo. I'm still having fun doing this. It's sometimes hard to NOT include some of you guys EVERY day. There are four or five of you who are consistently on top of the SF dog-pile.
