    from Daily Hailey

    Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso is on a visit in China, meeting the Chinese Vice Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli. This is seen as a sign of less tension between these two great powers. This is good. It would be great if China would back down from its aggressive standpoints. China claims the Senkaku Islands, which are part of Japan. Perhaps the lowered tension will not make China give up on this claim, but it might make China less inclined to act on it or support Chinese people who act upon...

    I love, love, love to go new places. I get so excited that my mom has to have many conversations with me about being calm and behaving as well as I do at the office every day. I must admit, I really dont hear a word she says when we get somewhere new.

    Humans dont ever seem to get excited about new places. You all just go and never think anything about all the new sites and smells. This is another reason I would rather be a dog than a human. I envy those thumbs of yours, but Ill take my...

    To keep her from getting bored, weve played games and kept her busy whenever possible. It remains difficult for her to sit easily (she rests on her good leg and still wont do a square sit) so some of our usual training games have been out. Weve played hide and seek and done some...
