Puppies 5 weeks




Okay, from the white puppy going clockwise... we have "Snowball", "Blackie", "Spotty" also known as "Leah", "Fireball", and "Joe".


You might be wondering why "Spotty" is also known as "Leah". It's because she attracts the most fleas. All the other puppies will have like two or three fleas on them when I bring them inside, but she will have more like thirty! I couldn't understand it, and Eric said that when he was growing up, Leah used to always get more bug bites than the rest of the kids, so we started calling her "Leah". Sorry, Leah! I'm sure you don't attract fleas!

Chas Pics

My sweetest boy...

Times like this, I am glad we don't have any close neighbors...




This is Chas with his best buddy, Christian Weeter, at the Weeter's pool. They had so much fun swimming and playing together.

TAG

I totally forgot about my tag by Tenara until I read Cynthia's blog. So here are 7 things about me:

1. I'm afraid I'm doing this wrong.

2. I love love love Lucky Charms cereal.

3. I am turning 29 this Friday (the 13th)... for the second time in a row!

4. Somedays, I would rather read than eat.

5. I have an extremely strong sense of smell.

6. I love my Doberman, Jackson. He weighs 109 pounds and he scares people, but he is such a baby and I love him so much. If Eric would let me, I would have lots of Dobermans.

7. I'm terrified of balloons, guns, firecrackers, and anything else that makes a loud unexpected or even expected noise.

Well, that's it. I think I'm supposed to tag more people, but I think a lot of people I know have already been tagged, so I will spare you all the obligation.

NEWS

Well, as for Moffitt family news, we have 5 healthy puppies left out of our litter of seven. We lost two of our babies, but we are very pleased with the remaining 5. They are really starting to look cute. In my opinion, newborn puppies are not very cute. We have been trying to swim every chance we get. I am really hoping the kids will learn how to swim without floaties this summer. I have heard the trick is to get them in the water as much as possible so that is what I am trying to do. It has been a lot of fun so far. Chas actually put his face in the water today. Major breakthrough!

In other news, I would like to share some interesting news facts to offset the onslaught of negative news I have been hearing lately. These are from Rob Brezny's weekly newsletter.

The world has become dramatically more peaceful since 1992, according to the non-partisan Human Security Report. Wars, coup d'etats, and acts of genocide have declined by 40 percent. Weapons sales have dropped
33 percent during the same time, and the number of refugees has decreased by 45 percent.

The cause of these developments is the unprecedented upsurge of international activism since the end of the Cold War, spearheaded by the United Nations.

Elsewhere, life extension researchers now believe that there is no absolute limit to the human life span. The average life expectancy is 30 years more than it was a century ago, and is steadily climbing.

Literacy and education levels are rising steadily all over the globe. Since 1970, the percentage of students going to secondary school has more than doubled.

Death rates from cancer are shrinking.

Child abduction by strangers has dropped precipitously.

In 60 years, there hasn't been a lower birth rate among teenage girls than there is now.

In recent years, the rivers and bays of New York City have been almost completely cleansed of raw sewage and industrial pollution.

Vast supplies of frozen natural gas lie beneath the oceans, harboring more potential energy for human use than all of the world's oil reserves, and could be mined with the right technology.

You have at least a million relatives as close as tenth cousin, and no one on Earth is any farther removed than your 50th cousin.

The world's largest private bank, Citigroup, has agreed to stop financing projects that damage sensitive ecosystems.

The giant timber company, Congolaise Industrielle des Bois, voluntarily agreed to stop cutting down trees in a virgin rain forest in the Congo.

Every second the sun generously transforms four million tons of itself into energy and bestows it on us free of charge.

With every dawn, when first light penetrates the sea, many seahorse colonies perform a dance to the sun.

Most HMO executives now believe prayer and meditation can expedite the healing process.

Each of the 50 trillion cells in your body can be considered a sentient being in its own right, and they all act together as a community, performing an ongoing act of prodigious collaboration.

Finally in the news, biologists have proved that with each breath, you take into your body 10 sextillion atoms, and—owing to the wind's ceaseless circulation—over a year's time you have intimate relations with oxygen molecules that have been exhaled by everyone who has ever lived, including Joan of Arc, Gengis Khan, Cleopatra, and Malcolm X.

John Keats said, "If something is not beautiful, it is probably not true."

Take that CNN!
