08:31 pm: Dog days of spring
There was a bit of a delay getting my solar panels installed. They're all on the roof now, but the service can't start until the inspector comes by and approves the installation. That's been scheduled for Monday.

The other big news is that Benny retired this weekend. His last day of work was on Saturday, after which I brought him to my house to get acquainted with Rei and the neighbors' dog. Early indications are that Benny and Rei will get along rather well. I had all of today to get Benny settled, and then tomorrow morning I will be taking off on an early flight for my four-week beagle replacement class. My parents will be dog-sitting until I return.

I won't be taking a computer with me the way I did last time. I'll just have my Kindle for internet. I plan to pack a few solitaire board games to keep me occupied in the evenings.

Do puppies get retirement parties? I wonder if Benny will miss work?

Have a safe trip! I hope your new puppy partner is awesome.

I baked some doggy muffins for Benny's retirement party and took him around all the offices to see everyone one last time. I'm sure he will miss getting treats all day, but he seems to be enjoying having a yard to run around in.

Benny has had a lot of practice being adorable. He actually seems to be turning into quite the lap dog. I'm just sorry I couldn't stay a little longer to help ease him into retired living.

Congratulations to Benny on his retirement! I hope he's not jealous of your new partner.
