I'm going to be away for two weeks to visit my nephew (and my sister and brother-in-law) for Christmas/New Years. I leave Wed and don't return until Jan 2 (hopefully I'll get a chance to get online during that time, but no counting on it at my sister's house). Unfortunately, this year I have to leave tribdog behind. Someone please make sure he gets fed (he'll eat pretty much anything, so this isn't too difficult). He's reasonably well housebroken, just don't let him play with matches. Once in a while he gets off his leash and roams into the other forums here, and has to be retrieved. No reason to worry if that happens, he doesn't bite, but will lick the face of anyone he runs into and do a few tricks to make them laugh. And, please, play with him a bit so he doesn't get too lonely missing me while I'm gone (it'll keep him from melting the carpet too). In case I don't have a chance to say so later, in the flurry of activity to get myself ready to leave in the next few days: Have a Very Merry Winter Solstice Holiday of Choice!
