So, Ace the wayward Briard dog from Florida made it here about 7:30 pm on Monday evening.

Poor guy.

He was petrified. It was interesting because he is definitely one of those dogs that if he can't be with the ones he loves, he's going to love the ones he is with. Because his people are in the middle of a fall from the level of irritatingly privileged, the in essence refused to put him on a plane, so he came by a ground transport company. One of the two drivers was a young man named Omar who is employed more as a dog handler than as a driver, I think.

Omar is not quite simple, but close enough that I doubt there is a dog on earth he can't handle. He has that, for want of a better set of words, lack of complexity in his world that gives him a calm you can almost smell even as a human. If anyone out there has ever read "Stand on Zanizibar" then think of the small country that always conquered their conquerors.

So he is settling in, being a bit of a teenager and testing to see what the new limits are. He actually seems relived everytime we set a limit for him, because his doesn't really need to be in charge, he just never had the option before to NOT be in charge. I'll post pictures once I remember to buy some Double A batteries.

Good news was that the neck wounds were already on their way to healing, though he had some other injuries that his people had "missed" when they looked him over...

stupid people. no biscuit.
