Stage 2 of The Suji Experiment was a rousing success. While our frenchie, Lulu, settled in nicely at the dogsitter’s (ignoring my goodbyes and disappearing down the hall seconds after dropping her off), Suji was a little more uncertain (attempting to follow Akemi out the door when we turned to leave). But, by all accounts, her overnight stay was a success. She stuck close to Lulu and was fairly quiet – until later that night when she became quite vocal about her displeasure in not being allowed to sleep on the bed. When we picked them up, she was so thrilled to see Akemi that she peed all over her coat. Lulu, meanwhile, left grudgingly. All in all, this bodes well for Stage 3, a multi-night stay, should we decide to head to L.A. in January or (Dare I say it?) Japan.
We took the opportunity to fly in to Montreal for the day and resume our condo hunt. Ideally, we’d like to find a place in condo but finding something we really like has been challenging. Montreal, surprisingly, offers a lot more options at a lot more value. We checked out about a half dozen places, and there was one we really liked. We’ll revisit when we’re back in town next week and, if we’re still feeling it, maybe put in an offer. Who knows? If the price is right…
Some of the highlights from our recent visit…
Sis and mom.
Kona thinks she’s a lapdog.
I’m on the edge of my seat. It’s do or die time for my Snow Monkeys as they take on The GOATS in fantasy football league semifinal action. I have the better team, but injuries and luck, both good and bad, have a way of swinging fate. I’m still agonizing over my lineup. Hopefully, it’ll all fall into place tomorrow and, next weekend, we’ll be securing our first championship since 2011. Great memories, right?
