Karen's dog Pepsi is staring at me; she had her lunch about an hour and a half ago, so it's just on general principles. :-)
She's been fine, and is definitely a sweetie, though she's an early riser, and I'm not. She was pretty good until I got up to go to the bathroom around quarter to seven. Then she knew someone was awake in the house, and barked again and again until I came downstairs to take her out for a moment. She has a condition where she's always thirsty, so is always drinking, so needs to go outside a lot. She's a dwarf Jack Russell terrier, and is cute and friendly. Other than this morning's barking, she hasn't been unpleasantly yappy, as many dogs her size are.
