Well we've been on our island paradise for exactly 17 days now. Tommy got here a week ago Friday and it's been non-stop ever since. Starting with the FAB (Furry Animal Ball), daily trips to SAGA to help with the animals and to walk the dogs in Fort Dog, diving and general fun and relaxation. He left on the 9 am Tropic flight this morning and we've all been pretty blue today. Add to it a tropical storm and even the island is sad to see him go. We have less than a week left here and will be coming home with one more family member - a cutie little island "potlicker" puppy that Jen managed to convince us to bring into the family. Not without much turmoil and heavy thinking about how she would integrate with the already established family of 2 dogs and a cat. God help us 3 dogs - not sure what we're thinking but it's too late now. She's already a Hoke. Mango Hoke to be exact! More later as the week progresses.

Hmmmm - still deciding but how can we say no to this face???
Oh yeah - the Best's brought an FAA approved carrier down with them from Michigan. I guess she's a Hoke now! Wonder if she'll remember he brief life as an island dog...
