Meet the new member of the family!

This is Ouizer at the shelter (his official mugshot, if you will):


More crappy cameraphone pictures* below the cut:

He is a purebred miniature dachshund, and we picked him up on Saturday in Arkansas from Small K9 Rescue.

Thankfully, he travels well:


He also enjoys hot dogs (a little hot wiener-on-wiener action, anyone?)




A close-up of a very sleepy puppy:




Mollie and he have ... eh, we're not to Neutral yet, but as of last night I think we were out of Hated, mostly through Hostile, bordering on Unfriendly. They're both home alone today; no doggie door yet, so Ouizer is penned in the kitchen and Mollie has her usual run of the house. The current challenge is that the puppy always wants to play, and unsurprisingly the cat really doesn't. He's taken a couple of swipes across the nose, but nothing really serious yet... They're both about 5-6 months old so I think once they get used to each other they'll be alright.

Giving me hope is that I've noticed she's pretty curious about him when he's being quiet, and when they're both out in the yard and she's chasing him she'll stay within inches of his heels but never quite catch him. When he's chasing her, he's running flat-out and she's staying ahead of him easily by a couple of feet. This leads me to conclude that they're just testing each other: if she really wanted to catch him, she could.

They're wearing each other out, though. They both come in panting and start to take turns annoying the piss out of each other. The cat wants to sleep, and the dog will start poking and barking... then that one wants to sleep, appropriates the cat's bed to do it, and the cat starts to haunt the couch arm above the bed like a little furry vulture. It's enough to drive you up the wall!


*I'd have more (and better) pictures, except my camera is out of batteries and all the rechargables have been claimed by Wii controllers, so you're stuck with what the cameraphone could grab. Sorry for the quality!

It`s really useful! Looking through the Internet you can mostly observe watered down information, something like bla bla bla, but not here to my deep surprise. It makes me happy..!!

Is anybody strong in radio here? We need a colleague who would tell us briefly about the transistor T2. I hope there are radio amateurs here. If it`s not on the subject at all, then I`m sorry. I have to write because I have no choice. PS: if the spelling is not right then also I'm sorry, I'm just 13 years old!....
