Real Life With Puppy

I like to present the positive side of Life. I believe in the positive side of Life. I believe in happiness and kindness and sweetness. My husband calls me a Pollyanna, and I never minded when he calls me that, because seeing Life as sweet and Humanity as decent is a good way to survive. …

Decisions, Decisions

I’ve been terrible with my blogging lately. I want to say I’ve been busy – and that’s true enough. But moreover, I think I just needed to take a break. I didn’t want to focus on something else. I wanted to UNfocus. The end of winter is always my least energetic time. I am tired …

Status: In A Relationship

On December 1, I wrote about my pressing need for Patience. The cause of my patience deficit was, of course, my puppy. Theo and I had not had a good week. His emerging leash skills had retreated back into the weird cave he seemed to share with Satan. He nipped constantly at the backs of …

Distracted – In The Best Way!

Why I was too distracted this week to write something new: I’m a new Mom! His name is Theo, and he’s eleven weeks old. Theo is a Lagotto Romagnolo – an ancient Italian breed who is the ancestor to the Standard Poodle. Lagottos are medium sized dogs – about 30 pounds full-grown – who are …
