ALL THE LATEST NEWS
But pretty soon, Mom came back, and she didn't have the car anymore because she took it to The Shop so that it could get a check-up and stuff like that. Then she gave us Breakfast of Dogs, and we mostly forgave her. And the best part about having the car in The Shop was that Mom couldn't go anywhere very far away, so she had to stay home with us all day, which we liked a lot.
Mom took us for long walks and then she repotted some plants and then she ate lunch. And after that, she wrote a letter to her new sponsored child, whose name is Sharon. The reason Mom got a new sponsored child is because the girl she was sponsoring in Nepal moved away from where she was living, so she couldn't be sponsored anymore. And Mom got to choose a new kid to sponsor. She was going to choose another girl in Nepal, but there weren't any on the website to choose, so she chose a girl in Kenya instead. Kenya is in Africa, so it's not anywhere near Nepal, but I think it's good that Mom chose a girl in Kenya.
Anyway, I don't think there are any basenjis in Kenya. At least, I have never heard of any basenjis in Kenya. Mostly I have heard of basenjis in the Congo and in places like Benin, which is in West Africa. And Kenya is in East Africa. The Rift Valley runs through Kenya, and there are lots of interesting animals that live there, but I don't think any of them are basenjis.
Mom wanted her car to be in good condition for the trip, so that's why she took it to The Shop yesterday. Of course, it turned out to be expensive to take the car to The Shop, which Mom says is always true. She says it is just like taking a dog to the vet. There is always something expensive wrong that has to be fixed. Anyway, Mom's car needed a new wheel bearing, whatever that is, so she told the mechanic to put it on, which he did, and the bill came to over $400, but this was still less than Mom had to pay last week for Gabe's dental and having all his cysts cut off of him.
Oh, and Gabe said to tell you he's healing up nicely, but he still has to wait another week before he can get his stitches out.
