Letter from the president: photos, parades, and pups

June photo

Most of you have probably heard by now that we have found our replacement “Kristen,” and I couldn’t be happier with our selection. I can’t wait to see what she can accomplish after she gets settled in, although she has already hit the ground running. The verdict is still out on whether she will indulge me in my odd requests for photos and such, but I’m optimistic. Former Kristan once let me tie her to a chair with electrical cords without question for a photo, so the bar has been set pretty high.

Summer is here, and that means the CYCA 4th of July Parade is right around the corner. This is becoming a fun family tradition for a number of families in CY, and we hope to have a record turnout this year. I can’t wait to play with the bubble wands and eat popsicles. And climbing on that fire truck never gets old! But you know who is NOT coming to the parade this year?: My dog Cooper, who recently started answering to “Bad Dog.”

To what I imagine was an innocent family walking their dog past my house last Sunday afternoon, I’d like to extend a sincere apology for the scare of Cooper busting through my front window to greet you. This time, luckily, he only broke through the inside window and not the storm window (I still owe the postman a dinner for that one), and after an evening in the emergency vet, I think Cooper actually learned his lesson … until the next dog walks by the house. I wish I knew what was going through his little dog brain (bless his heart) when his nose went through that window, but you got to love that sweet face. See the rest of you at the parade!
