Meet Hoover

Meet Hoover

Hoover is an Afghan hound. He is the latest addition to Rick & Lisa's family (which includes 2 adults, 2 children, 4 cats and now 3 dogs...and a guinea pig). He is also only 6 months old in this picture so just image how big he is going to get! He has a very sweet temperment, though because one of their other dogs is a chihuahua, they have to keep an eye on the two of them. Hoover could eat Zippy in one bite. Here's a shot of Zippy and Will:

Hoover has a very long face and HUGE paws. They remind me of muppet feet.

My what big paws you have!

Such a beautiful creature. Afghan hounds are sight hounds which means they primarily hunt by speed and sight, instead of by scent and endurance, as scent hounds do. Rick and Lisa said that whenever they take Hoover out, he constantly notices the smallest of movements.

In other news, I was wrong about the weather. The sun came out today and it was quite nice. I needed some sunshine. Lucky me, I managed to get out of work at 1:00 PM so I had plenty of time to enjoy the afternoon. Too bad I spent much of it right here at my computer!! Oh well, at least the sun shines blindingly bright into my office window. I spent some time deleting Moveable Type from my hosting server which also means I deleted FOUR years worth of archives. It feels kind of weird because part of me is convinced that somehow they aren't backed up and I literally wiped out four years of my memories. But it is not so. It's all safely tucked away on my computer.

I think this evening will hold some knitting - I finally get to start a new project! Wooo! I am so tired of knitting scarves. And it will also hold some chorizo tacos. Yum.

P.S. I am considering switching webhosts. What hosting company do you use?


  1. hi sneaky!
    welcome to blogspot! hope you like it. it's nice to see you writing again.
    I've got my appointment calendar now so after I load it up with my work schedule today I will be able to determine a good night to meet you for BEERS!
    LOT17 has Magic Hat now and also $2 drafts(incl hat, guinness and probably even some stuff you like too!) during happy hour. Can you make it there from work by 5pm?

  2. nice dogs! i use a host named totalchoice hosting (i hate that name!). they're relativley cheap, depending on how much space you need and i've never really had any problems with them. they have really good support forums that have answered most of my questions in the past.
