    I got a new puppy right before Christmas. He was a gift from my children and granddaughter.
    To say that the pup isn’t real bright is probably unfair. It’s more a matter of his human trainer being lacking.
    For some reason, I thought I wanted this dog to be paper trained rather than go outside. What was I thinking? Why didn’t someone tell me that this situation would get old, real quick.
    Now I have to figure out how to retrain him to “go” outside.
    Did I already say that he isn’t real bright?

  • Grace Notes

    This morning as I write this I’m at home because I re-hurt my knee as I was walking out the door.
    It will be OK, but I decided to work from home today as a precaution, ice my knee, sit with it elevated, not put pressure on it.
    The ice is comforting and cool and my laptop fits perfectly on my lap.
    Thank God for small things!
    The other day my great-niece Leah, 7, sent me a text to tell me she loves me. Leah, as little as she is, has a huge heart.
