Less is, more often than not, more. 
One less leg, hasn't made Cali any less happy and quite honestly, I think it has made her more happy.
She celebrates her 7 month Ampu-versary this week and her 7 year gotcha day this weekend...since it also happens to be our 9 year wedding anniversary..there will be extra treats all around.
Dana is now 13 1/2 and doing relatively well for her age.  She is less active and dances a lot less..but she is still the Roo Roo Pants.
I will also admit that I have lessened my load a bit.  A few months ago and many of the last few blogs have been shot with a new camera.  I loved my Canon 7D and had it for many years.  But it seemed to weigh more and more every trip.  And as a well known camera blogger recently said..cameras don't have eyes or is the moron behind the lens that makes a photo. And that I agree with!!  So I went mirrorless...  I am  now shooting with an Olympus OMD EM-1 compact systems camera with the 12-40mm 2.8 Pro lens (this is the "L" lens of Canon world).  I will buy another lens soon but for now, I am enjoying a one lens bag.  it weighs very little (about a 1/3 the 7D), has a touch screen, shoots great and I am betting no one noticed my change.  I've sold the 7D and honestly never missed it and i can certainly say my back, shoulder and wrist do NOT miss it. 
Cody and Roxi are no less active at this point. Which is great.  They truly seem to enjoy each other.
 And I think Cali has accepted him in to the pack

Congrats on all the 'versaries'. Glad Roxi has someone to play with, now that Cody is there. I use my Fuji X100s for everyday use, and really liking the mirroless.

I'm glad to hear about Calli accepting the newbie, and so very glad that she is more with less. Happy versary to you all!

I have a friend who recently got a mirrorless camera and really likes it! He let me hold it for about thirty seconds and I do agree, it's much lighter and easier to manage. Congrats on the great milestones in your house, too!
