My precious puppy, the murderer

Hailey is the sweetest dog in the world. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body...unless you're a bird.
She caught a sparrow in mid-fly this afternoon, while she and The Boy were playing in the front yard. MID. FLY. And then just kinda looked at it, which is better than what happened the last time she killed a bird, when she put it on Zane's pillow ("But that was good! That was a sign of respect!" No, Zane, it's just ewww...). She also catches flies in mid-air, but she generally eats those.


In other news, I've got a wedding in Orange County this weekend, which will be the first for my lovely interns, Kim and Kristine. They make me feel old, but they rock, even if they didn't think I knew what AIM was. Or a cell phone. And, you know, I've been running into that a lot lately. I was in Best Buy looking for a case for my Treo - my TREO, mind, you - and was telling a young clerk that I'd also seen some online, but..."Oh," he says to me, "Are you afraid to shop online?" Uh, What? Dude. I'm Gen X. We invented AIM. We invented cell phones. And the internet. AND ONLINE SHOPPING. I'm not afraid to shop online, I just don't have the patience to wait for the darn thing to get here.

Also, a tip for all of you out there who need to bring in alcohol for your weddings - try Trader Joe's. They have a merlot and chardonnay- Bear's Lair - that a friend of mine has been giving me as a gift for years. $3.95 a bottle, $48 for the case. It's one of my favorite labels, and even though it's impossibly cheap, no one will ever be able to tell. Well, unless they read my blog. It's $3.95 a bottle. Go and try it for yourself. You've got my client Robbin to thank for that tip - she reminded me of something I already knew. Gotta love it when that happens.
