Happy Birthday Quasia!

Wow, Quasia turns 4 today. I can't believe she's already four - time goes by so quickly. I'm getting old. I wanted to go home to see her today, but finals are next week and I can't realistically do that. Plus, I'd have to stay until Sunday for my grandpa's birthday as well. I've been really busy with work lately, so I haven't even had a chance to get her a present. She's getting spoiled when I get home.

Happy Birthday girl!

Puppy Withdrawal

So it's been a real long time since my last post. I guess not that much is going on since school causes me to be away from Quasia. I did try to get in contact with a region that is closer to my school about helping out, but they reasoned that I was too far away to help without actually raising a puppy. It's been since the summer since I've been involved with anything GEB related I guess (besides my winter break trip to NY).

Anyways, right now I really really want a puppy. I keep on hearing about new puppies added to our region and I've seen the pictures and I want to be able to raise again. I'm going to be home for five months this summer and I'm going to try to beg my parents to allow me to raise or at least puppy sit. I live with my grandparents and my grandma has asthma and she's claimed to have had problems when I've puppysat other dogs. It only seems to happen when she sees the dog though - my room's in the basement and I've had a puppy stay for a weekend before and she never had a problem. Plus, a pup probably won't shed as much as a grown dog. And my grandma and Quasia are getting along much better now and she hasn't really complained about her recently.

I guess I'm just realizing that school is almost over (last exam May 1st!) and I'd love to be able to raise again. I do need a job and to make money during the summer because I'll be studying abroad in the fall, so I don't really know how feasible raising a puppy would be. I guess sitting might work, but I want to be able to have a pup to myself, at least for the five months I'll be home. Anyways, those are just my thoughts for now - I should be concentrating on final exams, final papers, getting transfer credits, and finding someone to sublease my townhome, so I can't even really bring up the topic with my parents for now. I feel bad for even saying a thing because I know I should be concentrating on that and getting a job.

Quasia gets a package!

I just got home tonight, and Quasia's Secret Santa (err... Hannukah Harry) package was waiting. She got really lucky this year and she loves all of her new stuff. Here are pictures.

A package!

Looking at what she got.

Quasia's Secret Santa made her these homemade peanut butter cookies (dog friendly), and she absolutely loved them. This is her waiting anxiously for me to give one to her.

Her two favorite toys were a bear and a platypus beanie baby dog toy that she got. She carries both of them around everywhere now.

Everything all together. You can tell she's very happy now.

So now I'm home for winter break, which means that I will probably have more Quasia updates, but not right away. I'm leaving tomorrow to visit my brother up north, and I will be taking the bus back, so that I can visit my friends from my summer internship. I will probably be stopping at the CDC, so I can see everyone again and get in a good puppy fix. I'll see about posting pictures from there.

I hope everyone has a good holiday. Quasia's definitely in the holiday mood, though Hannukah is now over.

Santa Has Arrived

Well, at least he has arrived to someone. The package I was talking about in the previous post, finally made it to my Secret Santa, Daisy! She is an adorably cute 3 year old, with the most animated face. Just thought I'd share a picture of her with all of her goodies. (The chocolate is not for her).

Quasia's package has not arrived yet, but Santa (or Hannukah Harry) should be coming soon. :)

A Quasia Thanksgiving

Of course whenever I go home the thing that I'm most excited about is Quasia's greeting. This time, my mom opened the door before my dad and I walked in, and she ran right passed my dad (who she usually greets) and she ran right to me, wagging her tail a million miles per hour. Then she ran back inside the house, grabbed a toy and ran around the house. It's always the same thing. She definitely makes me appreciate coming home.

During the first 24 hours she was perfect, like usual. She followed me around everywhere, making sure that she didn't lose eye contact. I think she made me pet her all night.

She was pretty good during the whole week I was home actually. It just came on Sunday, where Devil Dog came out to play.

Sundays are always crazy, before heading back to school. I feel like I'm always rushing. This time, I had a Secret Santa package that I was preparing to send off, and I, of course, waited until the last minute to pack it up and send it. I brought the bags from Petsmart and I put them on the kitchen table. Then, I had to run downstairs real quickly to bring up some clothes to pack. When I came upstairs, the bags were on the floor, and Quasia was a couple of feet away in the family room, munching on the peanut butter dog treats that were not for her. Luckily, she didn't eat too many, but the bag was already ripped through, so I couldn't give that to my Secret Santa. Instead, I took one of Quasia's uneaten treats and I exchanged it with the peanut butter treats. I don't know if she deserves them though. I already made an announcement, saying that Quasia does not deserve her Secret Santa package - she's on the naughty list this year.

After getting into the dog treats, she felt like she still had to get into trouble. I left a plate in the family room, and she took that. Later, I left a banana peel and she took that too. I suppose it was my fault, but she usually isn't that bad. My mom said it's because she knew that I was leaving.

Anyways, I added in some pictures to this post - they're all from when I was home. I have some videos too, but I put them on my dad's computer, and I didn't have time to upload them online before I left. I should be home in just over two weeks though, so expect more Quasia updates them, and possibly Quasia Secret Santa opening package pictures, if Santa has decided to let that incident slip this year.

A Picture

So two weekends ago I was home and I was looking through some past pictures of Quasia. I completely forgot about this one. When my dad was in the hospital, my mom and I were going to make him a little book of funny pictures, and this is the only one we ended up doing, before things got hectic and I moved to New York. Anyways, it's kind of photoshopped, but I thought it was cute.

Lab Love

I just have to post this because it's the cutest thing ever. This is why Labs are the best. :)
