Sydney - couch

Right now...

...Sydney's very upset with us. :P She's running around the house like a maniac and when one of us tries to touch her she runs away. I guess it serves us right for putting her through the torture of her routine bath. :P I'd always thought that most dogs enjoy the water, and was surprised to find that Sydney can't stand it. We even bought a removable shower head to make giving her a bath much easier - but she still hates it. There's always a defeated, annoyed look that comes over her face when we're giving her a bath...

And afterward she looks like a skinny little mutt. She runs around the house, shaking herself and rubbing herself all over our furniture trying to get dry (we towel dry her - because she won't sit for a hair dryer...) My next challenge is to capture her so I can brush her. :P

Aside from giving Sydney a much needed bath, my day mainly consisted of reading for my next exam and listing my tickets for Avenue Q and Assassins on Ebay. I don't know if they'll sell, but I really have nothing to lose at this point since the tickets have already been paid for and I KNOW I won't be going to NYC in May. :(

Got a notification through the mail about Petwalk this year. Every year Mark, Sydney, and I try to participate in this fundraiser for our local Humane Society. Last year was the first year that Sydney walked the course (which is about 4 miles) and she did surprisingly well - prior to that, we've been going as volunteers for the event. I think we're going to take Sydney and walk the course again this year. :)

And yay! Mark finally completed our taxes! :) Okay, so we have to pay this year, but at least it's done (and it's not even the 14th!) and I won't have to get after him about it anymore. :)
