Everyone at work...  
...has been getting sick recently. :P They're all teasing me and calling what they have the "NYC virus" since it all seems to have started for everyone when I came back from my trip. I keep trying to tell them that I wasn't sick when I came home, I just lost my voice because of all the yelling I did at the show in NYC. ;) No one believes me, however. Still, I'm the only one in the office who hasn't caught this "NY virus" yet... *knocks wood*

Curves called me twice since I changed my location closer to my new office - no doubt wondering why I haven't made it down to work out there yet. :P I just can't bring myself to go there since the traffic in and out of that place is nearly impossible! I know, no excuses ~ I haven't made use of my membership for at least half a year now... :P And judging by all the weight I've gained over the holidays I really should start going again. :P

On a completely opposite note, poor Sydney looks so scrawny and thin lately. :( She seems to have shed her entire undercoat while we were away in NYC. I managed to brush off what seemed like an entire dog when we first brought her home! :( Hopefully she'll be back to her fuzzy self again real soon.

And I'm heartbroken that all the good seats for "Assassins" have already been sold for the weekend I was planning on being in NYC in May. :( They just went on sale on Sunday and when I checked on Sunday afternoon, they were all almost sold out! :( I'll have to see if a trip out there in May is worth it. :P My FF miles are just itching to be used. ;)

I love that puppy picture of Sydney so much!

The huskies are starting to shed their coats now and they all three are looking so pathetic when we're used to seeing them all fluffy and big.

Oh now I'm sure Shelties can compete with Huskies for looking pathetic;-) If there's one thing Tess really knows how to do, it's moult big time!

Guess what, my parents might have to go to a funeral in Wales - that will mean me looking after Tess for the day, so she might be coming to work with me!

I was surprised that Sydney shed her coat now - (she usually sheds during the summer months) - but I guess since it's hot year round here, now is as good a time as any.

It's great that you work at a place where it's possible to bring Tessa with you. I read that employers who let their employees bring their dogs to the office have employees in better health, who are happier, stress-free, stay longer and accomplish more. :)

Tess was busy moulting in December when it was really cold!

As for work, we're away from the main office, so it's just Adam who has to be happy with her being there. One time Joss was taking her cat over to Ireland and that ended up spending the day in our library. It was drugged up for the flight, so was completely happy, it was sat on the table purring all day. Thing was, our Chairman wasn't supposed to know, he'd have hit the roof. He turned up in our dept and I had a chat with him right at the library door desperately hoping he wouldn't hear the loud purring behind him!

Thanks, Amanda! :) She was awfully cute back then, but so naughty! I think that was the only photo I had of her from that age that she's actually sitting. :)

I hope Sydney grows her coat back, she looks really scrawny. :(

Another possible NY trip? WOW!!! :D

I hope so!! It looks like all my friends might be gathering there in May (for another - Chad Brannon reason - maaaaybeee... you probably know why) ;) and I'd love to see them all there and see some shows at the same time. :) It's been ages since I've seen them.

Once, when I visited an animal clinic with Lauser and we had to wait for a long time, he lost many hears. A veterinarian told me that dogs sometimes can get such a reaction if they have got stress or dislike something. I hope that Sydney will be back to her fuzzy self, soon.

I'm glad to hear that you've not got the "NY virus" and hope that you will not get it. *knocks wood*, too.

Please, take care. *Hugs* to you and a special one to Sydney

I thought it might be the stress that contributed to Sydney's shedding while we were gone. Does Lauser shed in the summer months too? I feel so bad for them when they lose their coat, because they look so sad. :(

Please take care of yourself too, Sabine. And big *HUGS* to you and Lauser! :)

No, neither Lauser nor the first Sheltie have lost much more of their coat in the summer months. So, perhaps, I should be glad that I never saw Lauser that way but, otherwise, I wish he would loose more coat.

I'm crossing my fingers that you will not get the "NYC virus". *Hugs*
