Office worker called the owner, the owner called me and I gave him my address. He was here in a flash, all happy and thankful. I was so pleased to be able to help. I know how crazy I’d be if Frida wasn’t where she was supposed to be.
Apparently this corgi thinks sit means lay down, because lay down is what she did every time I asked her to sit for a picture. Wait. I guess she is sitting in the picture above. Kinda hard to tell (her rear end only lowers an inch or so when she bends her shorty rear legs–cute)! I guess getting her picture taken wasn’t sufficient reward for sitting, so every time thereafter she laid down. Oh, her name is Jenny. I love dogs with people names.
Very glad Lacey didn’t get to meet Jenny. Lacey loves her some corgis. I wouldn’t be surprised if she pulled out a pocket knife and dug out the chip so she could keep little Jenny. Obviously joking, but she would have made the owner hang around for an hour or so while she pretended Jenny was hers and could stay forever. I have to admit I enjoyed her company. Kinda wish the owner had been at work so I could have enjoyed an afternoon with her and Frida. Oh well. The sooner the better when returning lost dogs.
Got my new frame and fork. So beautiful! I’ll take pictures when it is together. It is mostly together now, but for the brakes and the front derailleur. I can’t use the Superbe Pro brakes (too short), but I have vintage Shimano 600s that will work. I need a couple of these to install the nutted Shimano brakes in the fork and brake bridge, both of which were designed for brakes secured with recessed allen nuts. I also need an adaptor clamp so I can use my Superbe Pro front derailleur which was made to be used on a frame with a braze-on. This frame lacks the braze-on. I’ve ordered both parts. Should be here in early 2012. Anticipation!
Hope you are well. Bye.
