I took Kona down to the park and off the bike path into the woods so he could run around a little.

Just some silliness with iMovie.

The moment he realized he was off-leash was quite funny. He juked a step to the right, then left, then took off like a shot. Overall, he was pretty good about coming back when I called, though I did have to catch up to him once or twice so he would pay attention.

It's nice to be able to let him run in cold weather when the bugs are gone, and there are fewer people about.

Nap Time

Kona's sweet (if goofy) nature continues to assert itself. Moose, our geriatric cat (nearly 20!) sleeps a lot (wouldn't you?), and seeks out warm, padded places to nap. Kona went to his bed to lie down and found the cat curled up. After a moment's confusion, Kona just curled up next to him, taking care not to overly disturb his elder while he lay down. The two of them slept peacefully for a good 15-20 minutes before the kids came in and made enough noise to wake them up.

Kala (Kona/Nala)

Well, the new neighbors got to meet this weekend and I think it was a case of BFFs at first sight. The two of them hit it off like gangbusters and played themselves silly. Nala is a doll and there was no aggressiveness or touchiness on either side. Here's hoping to more playdates and more pooped pups.

Who's that on the other side of my fence?

Kona has a new neighbor.

Our next door neighbors just adopted a 2-yo spayed lab mix named Nala. Once she has had a chance to settle in (and get her spay stitches out), We're going to try introducing the two as potential playmates. She seems very calm and friendly. I hope she likes Kona OK.

Kona has been sniffing like mad through our fence as he hears her in the other yard. Once they meet, I'll try to take some pics of them together.
