Royce Hall, UCLA

Tiring of the rain and clouds, Aviva and I decided to take Iggy and Jett on a car ride down to the Woodfield Century City Mall – they let dogs into most of the stores and it seemed like a way to get out on my last day off. After buying a new spice rack […]

Iggy takes a toy from Jett

Iggy and Jett play together a lot; Jett is smaller and younger so she usually comes out on the short end (as a good friend once told me, dogs aren’t about fairness), and here’s an example – Iggy rushes her, they play tug of war, and Iggy eventually takes the toy. Translate

DirecTV Holiday Party pics

We had our 2010 holiday party last night; it was held at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, and it was a lot of fun – in addition to an ice sculptor and s field of snow, there were ice skaters performing, various foods around including a decorate-the-gingerbread-man area. Translate

Jett and Iggy – more photos!

It looks like we have a new addition to our family – Jett now sits happily on our laps, follows us around and is starting leash training along with some potty training.  Yay! She’s small (I’d guess around 11 or 12 lbs.) compared to Iggy (who is getting close to 16 lbs. now) and her […]
