Sleepy Sunday

Well I slept most of the day. Don't really know why--I guess I was just very tired. Traveling all day like yesterday can really take it out of you.

We went to Petco to spend Scout's Christmas giftcard on a new sweater for her to wear in Germany. I say "new sweater" as if she had an old one. Nope. When she was a little puppy in Missouri I made her a sweatshirt out of fleece. I couldn't afford a real sweater and didn't think I'd be able to get it over her head anyway, so I designed a sweatshirt that velcroed up the back with little holes for her paws. I'm not sure where it went. I mean I know where it went--it went on the dog. What I mean is that I think I've lost it. Haven't seen it in at least 5 years. So anyway, she needs a new sweater both for the cold temperatures in Hamburg and particularly for the plane ride. Although she will be in a heated compartment, I think it's probably going to be pretty cold anyway. Considering the cabin is heated as well and I always need a blanket on board. So anyway, off we went to Petco only to find no dog sweaters! Sure there were three boxes on the floor with dog sweater packages, but no actual sweaters in the packages. How weird is that? I guess Petco figures if you didn't buy it for Christmas you aren't getting one. Well we ended up ordering one online, in sporty horizontal stripes. Hopefully it won't be too much work to get it on.
