Wow haven't done a journal in awhile. Sorry for being so inactive. I've been spending a lot of time harassing my pern forum and working on stuff for my portfolio review for college. (HOMG SO NERVOUS). Sooooo not much to update about life other than a few things.
1. I have yet ANOTHER corgi added to our family. Her name is Riley and she was a rescued dog they got from a puppy mill. They think she had at least two litters before we got her so she's a mama dog and knows how to handle pups. She was really nervous at first but now she's a complete lap dog/attention whore. Our other female corgi, Roxy, still gets into little scraps with her but our other corgi, Jake, LOOOVES her. I'll post the awesome pictures I have of them all playing outside later.
2. My tablet finally kicked the dust. I always hear about people losing their tablets after about two years; usually being the Bamboo or Graphire brand. Mine was an Intuos 2 which was bitching some oh..6 years ago. Since then, two better generations have come out. Well good old tabbie finally bit the dust after months of slowly dying on me. Not having the money to drop on a new one, my parents made a deal that if I made them off bit by bit for the next few months, they'd buy me it. So as you can see by my newest picture, I do indeed have a new tablet. It's a shiny Intuos4 large tabbie and IT'S AWESOME.
3. And sadly, while adding a new pet to the family, I also lost a few babies. Last sunday, I woke up to find my little rat Dallas had passed away. He wasn't even a year old yet and was completely fine the night before. His brother, Mason, became very clingy to me as that was his only cagemate (Sawyer and Locke must be kept seperate from them). I was going to start introducing him to the other boys this week because I know how bad it is for a rat to live alone. Gio certainly was lonely after Dante died. Two days ago I woke up again to find that Mason had also passed away in the middle of the night. I have no idea what took both of them from me at such an early age. They were eating, drinking, and had nice healthy weights. I'm still at a lost. I've scrubbed the cage and disinfected it so much you could eat off of it because of suggestions they might have just caught something that took them out so quickly. For now I'm on super watch for my last two babies. I can't stand the idea of losing them too.
