Butters got adopted!!

Butters, (photo slightly edited for happy emphasis)

Today, I did my happy dance for hours!

I happened to be working with a new client whose dog reminds me of Butters, the dog I found in our neighborhood back in November. I hadn't checked the Mostly Mutts sight in a while, but over the past 7 months, I had checked so many times, holding my breath, praying his little mug shot would no longer be in the "waiting to be adopted" file. My heart was heavy. How I wish we could have kept him here with our two dogs. I knew someone was looking for him...someone who didn't know him yet...I always held hope that his turn would be very soon.

Well, today I saw that the little fella had found his forever home on June 18th, at least that's when the picture was taken!

My heart feels light again. I shed a few tears of joy and then hugged my own spoiled lounge lizards. Once again, I will do my best to help the next dog who crosses my path.

I don't think I know you, Kathy, but I want to thank you for loving him, whatever his name might be now.

Here's the original post from last year when I found Butters: The Case of the Runaway Jackabee

Dinner and a movie

Dinner at Casa Grande in Atlanta

Eric took me to Uncle Julios's Casa Grande for my birthday dinner. If you like Tex-Mex, this is the best place in Atlanta. The best tamales in town, an actual chile relleno, instead of fried cheese covered in ground beef, which is the usual crap you see around here. The Frijole Charros are out of this world!

We saw Thor afterwards and I give it 3 thumbs...wait a second..two thumbs up! If you like superhero movies or comic book characters, this one is worth seeing!

Juanita's Platter. mmmmm. Leftovers are good for lunch tomorrow.

Oh, by the way, did I mention that the very best margarita in Atlanta is also at Casa Grande? Made from fresh ingredients and premium tequilas, you will be hooked!!

Uncle Julios Casa Grande, with locations in Atlanta, Virginia, Florida, Illinois, and Texas, is worth the trip.
