Odds and Weekends

I spent Saturday visiting animal adoption sites looking at dogs. I am considering adopting a small dog, even though I have never had a dog before. I do have two cats. So the dog has to get along with cats and a 13 year old boy. A is lobbying for a "small dog" like a chihuahua. I patted many dogs, but none really got to me. Which is good, because I don't want to get one just on impulse. Unfortunately, when I got home, my eyes felt a little puffy, so I am worried that I might be allergic.

A was confirmed in our church today along with the rest of his class. They had to take a ten week course before joining the church, but he did not seem to mind. In fact, he was asking me about helping at Vacation Bible School. I asked him if he wanted to, and he shrugged, which I take to mean "Sure, I'd love to!" Since I have already signed him up for Jr. High Mission Week, and his uncle is threatening to take him to a chess tourney, his June sounds nice and busy.

Yes. It was a very nice ceremony; his teachers came and laid hands on him as the minister performed it. Then his teacher tried to hug him, but he dodged out of the way!

A little hint...
Poodles are non-allergenic. They have different fur than other dogs.

A dog! Those are fun! We have one of those. I always wanted a Chihuahua when I was about Mr. A.'s age,but I never even had the courage to tell my parents. The small dog most like a big dog is a miniature pinscher, which looks like a baby doberman, but has a personality which is not barky but sweet, and yet self-respecting (I have not looked it up, but I rather think it is a terrier that looks like a pinscher than a literal pinscher).
A miniature pinscher is very short-haired, and thus might be easier allergy-wise. With your swinging cats, though, you may want to teach them to bark and sit up for treats.

I am trying to pin down the appropriate tournament for the Summer this week, so that we can all block our calendars. There are many to choose among, so Mr. A.'s schedule probably will not matter much, but among these other things on his "to do" list, are there any that will cost him a June weekend?
