This posting is really a follow up to the previous one and many of my friends will have seen it in an email I sent out a few days back. Unlike many people up here I still find summer to be my least favorite season followed closely by break up. I’ve listed some reasons for my choice of which numbers 1, 3 and 4 were commented on in the previous posting:
- Complete lack of a dark night sky resulting in circadian rhythm upset
- Warmer temps
- Hordes of mosquitoes
- Ditto regarding tourists
- Inevitable road construction
But to this list I add the attached image which says it all! Poor Anana blows her coat almost every year but this year has been particularly bad. Every morning I awaken with her fur in my mouth, nose and eyes regardless of how much I brush her and vacuum; and unlike Qanuk she doesn’t sleep in the bed with me. Good thing I love her so dearly! She’s gonna be one svelte girl when she finally finishes which, sadly for both of us, is still a few weeks out.. The second image shows just how fur can come out using a typical ‘rake’ type brush and brushing my ‘little’ angel for around seven minutes.
