First, profuse apologies for having been silent for so long. I have lurked now and then in the forum, but have been busy busy busy fulfilling the requirements of my degree program and my denomination for becoming a UU minister. All of that stuff, a very long journey, was completed just a few weeks ago with my achievement of preliminary ministerial fellowship in the Unitarian Universalist Association and then being ordained by my internship congregation in Pennsylvania, which I've been serving this year as associate minister.
Now we are planning a move to Boston this summer, for me to take a part-time ministry position in the city. Will be there next week looking for a place to live.
I am hopeful that
1. You won't be too terribly upset with me for not having connected better previously.
2. Bounder and I can be added to the list of New Englanders who, I see, get together for meet-ups now and then; yay! Lookin' forward to that.
3. You folks on this list, who know best, can please fill me in on things-Havanese, Boston-area based: e.g. the best vets, the best groomers, the best places for supplies (Canidae is the food of choice), the best place to leave my little guy overnight if necessary, the best dog parks. (I don't know yet where we will live; I'm sure that could make a dif. I'll update you when I know, and also will welcome suggestions for the best rental housing: the most space in the nicest area for the least money, LOL -- ministers don't make much $$$.)
Hoping to hear back from anyone who has advice about any or all of the above, and anything else I didn't think to mention. Bounder is a sweetie who is looking forward to meeting Hav pals in the area of his new home.
