Spike has a girlfriend...

This weekend was nice. It was the first weekend since my paycheck has been big enough to handle more than just the bills. So to celebrate, we went to a movie with a friend. We haven't seen a movie in a theatre since Expendables 2 came out last August. We chose Furious 6 - we love the entire series, and they are so much better on the big screen :)

When we got home, a few of our neighbors were outside. One of them has a beautiful dog named Bella. She is Spike's girlfriend. One several occasions this week, he has gotten into a lot of trouble because of Bella. He's been darting out the door when he sees her. To deal with this, we put the gate back up. Now he has to be let out of the gate to see her. Anyway, we let Spike out to play with her while we spent some time with the neighbors. I used to be really worried about letting him out without a leash - fearful that he'd run off and we wouldn't be able to catch him. But as long as his girlfriend is outside, he roams the entire courtyard, but doesn't go anywhere else. He doesn't even fight us when we tell him it's time to go home. Yay!

In other awesome news, my niece is finally here! She only decided to be two weeks late, but that's ok. She decided to be her mother's birthday present :) She's absolutely adorable and I'm so excited she's here.

I stopped at Half Price Books, because my collection of unread Dean Koontz books is rapidly shrinking. I found 6 more on clearance for $2 a piece, and several were hardback copies! I'm a little addicting to Koontz - I'd say I have close to 4 dozen of his books. Since he's been publishing since 1969, I've got a long ways to go before I own them all.

That was my weekend. How about yours?
