Puppy Update

Hey there,

Thanks for coming on my roller coaster ride when it comes to the dog side of my personal life. The decision to acquire Intuition coming just a week before my loss of Nyx is still a weird twist of fate.

Today, Intuition came home. We were delayed by the snow storm. Let me tell you that I am exhausted. I have shoveled snow all weekend while pacing and stressed. Would we get dug out? Would we get delayed again? I wanted my exhausting responsibility.

The car ride down wasn't bad. We got stopped in traffic a few times for the heavy duty plows on Interstate 95. Once we got past them it was smooth sailing. The GPS took us down some partially plowed back roads. Oh the glares I gave my husband over those. He was agreeing however. We made it.

How big he has gotten. He weighs 29 pounds at 10 weeks and 3 days.

We did all the final paperwork and loaded back up. Temperatures had warmed but we were dropping to below freezing again and the melt would cause the entire interstate to become black ice.

Ahh, travelling with puppy the first time. He was plenty carsick. I had all of that planned out. I'm to experienced at this. Heavy duty disposable shop towels to catch vomit. Regular towels to absorb drool. Blankets for warmth. The drive went super well.



Once home he went potty, met the big girls, met the cats, ate dinner, and now we're settling into our new life. Maybe once we have some natural light we can get some better pictures.

I'm totally worn out but its all worked out nicely. He is incredible. Great temperament. The entire day has not bothered him a bit. Hes alert, interested, and willing to take on more challenges. I'm having to wind him down for the day. I know hes way over stimulated even if he does not realize it.

He did take one nap in my lap. He doesn't fit. My goodness but don't tell him that.


We have a lot to learn. Steps for one. He is heavy and getting heavier. But for tonight we're going to just get through it. I work tomorrow but my mom will make sure he goes out and gets fed.

Phew. 

He isn't a replacement for Nyx. He does, however, fill a particular little void. I think he and I will have a very good relationship.

  1. 'Intuition' - 'Inty' for short?

  2. What a beautiful dog! And a great name, too.

  3. Not a dog person, not fond of dobermen in particular. But he seems like a neat example of the breed, and hey, he seems to be what you want. And since he is going to be your dog, that is the important thing, right?

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
