We took her to our favorite local dive last week to show off her new collar (GO MIAMI!). As her vet said, "only the best for her". :) The staff at the restaurant brought her a child's sized hotdog with toasted bun. No fries. :( if you ask Jet.
She continues to impress us with her adaptability. A few hours ago she had THREE kids, count 'em THREE, to pet her. And they were here for at least 15 minutes. Then they left. ROOOOOOOOO!!!! A picture is worth 1000 words.

coached triathlete swim at the local pool. 6:30-8:00pm. This may be my
only chance at regular swimming once work starts again so I wanted to
make friends before I become that perpetually late girl.
Despite all the warnings from the other swimmers and my own memories,
the coach was in a good mood tonight. He only got grumpy with me once.
I'm in the newbie lane and must stay there until he promotes me. I've
seen people ask to move up before. It's not pretty. Can't blame them
really. 1550 in 70 minutes leaves me a little underwhelmed. Plus,
standing around in the pool makes me cold! But he gave us lots of
feedback. That's what I came for. I can be trained to swim far. I
want to swim fast.
So far it's 5 days straight of swimming for 7750 yards. Some weeks
have been longer in terms of yardage but never so many days in a row.
It's been fun. And because my barge is not working tomorrow and the
pool is set up for long course in the early morning, I'm going for 6
days! Just gotta find a workout in my archives...
p.s. Hey Shawn! I learned a new drill you'll be seeing soon.
