It’s me again.  Mom took me to puppy socialization class again last night.  Wheezer was not there, he graduated even though he humped too much.  So did Caramel and Laia.  I was the biggest puppy in the class by 15 pounds.  The blue ladies said I was good because I made myself small when I […]

John and I have talked about getting a dog for a long time.  We were never home enough, had no fence, no time, etcetera.  And let’s face it, cats are EASY. John wanted a German Shepherd.  I did not.  I wanted a Golden Retriever or a shelter dog, something more giant-lap-dog-ish.  John did not.  So […]
