On Making Connections

Hard to believe, but I've had Chase for two years now. I got the little guy on the 4th of July weekend two years ago, so it's our anniversary (of sorts) for being together. He was an entire eight and a half pounds when I got him, just a tiny little bundle of curls and puppy attitude, and look at him now. All grown up and such a sweetie! Gosh, I love the doggies, don't I?

In other "making connections" news, it seems the good folks at Flickr have hooked up with the good folks at Twitter. Yes, you read that right. Just as I've been using flickr and blogger, in combination (what the techie folks call "web services") to bring you this blog, I can now Flickr and Twitter together as well. I can tweet my recent photo uploads. Isn't that special? How fun is that? I can't (yet) flickr my tweet, but that wouldn't make any sense anyway (if, you know, you were to really stop and think about it.) Anyway, this whole flickr/twitter connection is really great in a lot of ways. It's making Flickr be, like a dashboard of sorts, connected me to everything else. I can upload into Flickr, I can blog from Flickr (as I have been doing all along) and I can tweet my recent blog posts as well as my recent photos.

Don't you just love it when technology comes together like that? Isn't it great?

Until next time...

In general I prefer dogs to technology! Happy 2nd adoption day for Chase. He has a lovely face! And I'll bet he never crashes on you for no apparent reason, refuses to acknowledge your external drive, or occasionally makes incessant demands for passwords while you are trying to access your emails.

Lol, thanks, Postcards!

He does sometimes crash though-against my leg. He likes to fall asleep with his head on my leg. He also demands that I pet him, in certain spots at specific times. When he wants his belly rubbed, for example I'm not allowed to pet his back, he'll sort of "beat me" with his paws until I move to the belly. So demanding, that poodle guys is!

But, yes, you're right. No password demands. (Yet.)

Yes, I suppose they make different kinds of demands from the technology. Lucy is happy to be petted wherever, whenever. What she absolutely will not tolerate is stopping the petting. She has what we call a 'bossy nose' that steps in to make sure there's no slacking.
