R.I.P Hans

The Wick household has sad news this dad's partner for about 10 years, Hans, has passed away. He was 13 years old. Hans put MANY "bad" guys behind bars for the City of Duluth and even won awards as a top dog among MN police dogs. As with most german shepards, his hips got bad and he developed other medical problems that made it hard for him to even walk any longer. :( Sad but I know he is happy in doggy heaven, eating all the chocolate chip cookies that he wants!

In other news, Cornell and I have been busy with townhouse stuff. Today we had our "walk through" were we went thru the home with the builder and found the nicks, scratches, etc to be fixed before we move in. We are still scheduled to close on Monday and we CAN'T WAIT! Cornell has been researching how to put in hardwood floors for the past few weeks, I think that will be our first big project. It is fun to watch my husband learning how to be a handy-man. :)

Last friday we went to the brand new Ikea here in is HUUUUGe. I love it. It has a day care and a restaurant also, crazy! It is so fun to walk around and just get different ideas for home decorating.

I am off til Tuesday now! What will I do with myself you ask? Pack, Pack, and more packing. Not fun, but at least it is worth it in the end! :)

Oh goodness, I'm so sad to hear about Hans...he was such a good boy and loved to work. At least we know he is in a peaceful place playing with lots of other great doggies :( ~Anne
