Flomar

We have an aussie mix puppy that we rescued from the pound. She's about 7 months old now, so yesterday we had her spayed. She's doing fine, although not her usual over-active self. She's very smart and needs lots of stimulation. If we don't give it to her, she will terrorize the kittens. OK, even when we DO give her stimulation, she terrorizes the kittens.

You may be wondering where the name Flomar came from. It came from the movie The Martian Child. It is about an orphaned boy who believes he is from Mars. He is adopted by a fantasy novel writer, and their relationship developes sometimes in reality and sometimes somewhere else. It is one of our very favorite movies. You've got to see it. Anyway, the name Flomar is Martian for "warm, furry friend".
