Notes from Bill about Stacey's knee injury ... THURSDAY 7/10/14: Stacey Arnold, Pat's (and my) 2nd daughter, and President of Straydog Inc. for the past three years, slipped on her kitchen floor this morning and landed directly square on her knee and broke her kneecap in two. Stacey is in the hospital, and she'll need surgery. More to come soon. FRIDAY 7/11/14: Stacey had a good day. Pain, but it's being lessened by the drugs as she awaits surgery to repair her broken kneecap. SATURDAY 7/12/14: Stacey had another good day. Not too much pain. SUNDAY 7/20/14: Stacey had her knee cap repaired in surgery on Monday, and she's recuperating at home. Pain is getting less and less with each passing day.

SEARCH ENGINE for Straydog.org

A Note from Bill: I accidentally deleted our Straydog search engine a few weeks ago, and I don't know enough about computers, the internet or the html programs I'm using to reinstall it and make it work again. So I just tried to Google: "Straydog.org Lisa-Lisa" and it worked, bringing up many, many pages on our website that include Lisa . So I guess we don't need our own Straydog search engine. Just Google: Straydog.org followed by the name of any of our dogs.
