I know I look pretty zombie-ish in my pic.. but I find it amusing that I resemble both Ian McKellen AND Patrick Stewart. I am X-MAN! :-D

Hope everyone's doing well! Sorry (again) for the long break [blame: work, Facebook, cleaning, angsting, reading awesome novels (Atwood's "Lady Oracle" & "The Robber Bride" as well as Rankin's "The Flood"...Gaaahhhh!) Things are swinging well over here, with Spring opening at last, and mysteries appearing all over the place. My Poppy survived and is growing out front (cool!) My shed, in the light of day, contains all kinds of weird-ass sh*t I've never seen before. I'll post some pics soon. Have to clean the shed. Eventually.
So, yes.. a "pome".. not a particularly great one *wink*. Whoever can guess the double-meaning imbedded therein will get a prize! Honest ;-) Good luck!Cheers,

Sorry for a mass-mail (of course!) but I wanted to get this out to as many folks as I could... I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Spring weather (although I hear we're to get some snow.. acckk!!)
Now, onto the Main Message....
My friends Catherine & Alan have a beautiful 1 year old shepherd/collie mix named Mango, and are hoping to find a warm and loving home for her. My friends have to move back to Hong Kong in the summer to be with Alan's parents and they can't bring their sweet doggie with them. I was hoping to take Mango, but a trial weekend proved that a) she was too big for me, my house & my cats to handle and b) Clay & I are both at work for up to 9 hours a day.. not fair to a dog. So, I was hoping to see if any of you might be able to take her, or know of friends, or extended family who would be interested.
Mango is sweet natured, well-behaved, crate trained, is up to date on her shots and has lots of energy. She is naturally curious and is amiable with other pets. (It was my herd of cats that didn't like her, not the other way around..) Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

big hugs & love
