…to bring you PUPPIES!
Well, just one puppy. But what a puppy. Sigh. I’m smitten.
Puppy’s vital stats:
Name: Ernest (AKA Ernie, Ernesto, Che, and occasionally the names of my cats and children when I get confused)
Age: 3 months; he’s been with us since age 8 weeks.
Breed: Labrador/Boxer mix (Chosen because one of the owners – either me or my spouse, I’m not pointing the finger here – misled the other into thinking that boxers were low-energy dogs that would balance the high-energy Lab genes. HAHAHAHA. Jogging, anyone?)
To anyone who actually reads my blog, I apologize for the several weeks of silence, but my life has become a series of brief visits to the computer in between training, fetch, and piddle sessions. I’ve been using those visits to actually write a book. (Well, revise, but that’s the main part of writing for messy drafters like me.) Blogging has taken a back seat.
But it’s not all I’ve been neglecting. There is a long list of things I have NOT been doing lately:
And here is my list of things I HAVE been doing:
- cleaning up pee
- practicing “sit,” “off,” and “high five”
- writing a book
- ignoring my cats
- ignoring my children
- ignoring my husband
- repeating “You’re so cute! How can you be so cute! Oh my god, you’re just so cute!” ad nauseum.
Clearly I am too busy to blog.
I was feeling bad about leaving this blog reading, Come to my event that happened last month, so I thought I better just pop in while Ernest is napping and make my excuses. Now that that’s taken care of, I really must go. We’re working on “drop it” and then we’re off to the woods (for the third time today – it has been over a year since my old dog Charlie passed away and I really haven’t been for a walk since, so I have some lost time and saggy muscles to make up for).
Oh, they grow so fast.
