Why they’re called the dog days of summer…

Who doesn’t love good news? There’s lots of it this week. Nominations for the Canadian TV industry’s Gemini Awards were announced yesterday…Congratulations to each and every nominee. You’ll find the full nom list at http://www.geminiawards.ca/.

And! Kudos to Flashpoint’s cast and crew. The team got the go-ahead yesterday from CTV for a second season of episodes, and will resume production in early 2009.

As for the other bits of good news and pats on back, noggin’ etc…please say hello to the newest member of the Cunningham clan, Lola. She’s a four-month old Viszla and a rescue from the Los Angeles County shelter. Unlike Vancouver, which maintains a no-kill policy for strays, LA County euthanizes after a maximum four-day stay…Believe it or not this beautiful, sweet, little being was in serious danger of leaving the world not long after she entered it…

How about those paws? She’s going to be a big girl, ya?

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
It's a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up world
Except for Lola, lo, lo, lo, Lola.
(The Kinks)

Back to work…and obedience school…see yas all after Labour Day…
