I’m on vacation for a month. I’m happy with this turn of events. I can’t afford to do anything fun, plus I have a new puppy, plus I need to help out with B, so going anywhere is out of the question. I’ll stay at home and work on my house projects, writing projects—and Millie.
Speaking of Millie, she’s still a dork. Who knew that included in her Mal-Shi mix was dork, but she’s been doing better outside. She actually walks on her leash some, forgetting her collar at times. However, she doesn’t like the monsters who live across the way in another fenced yard—the neighbor's barking dogs. She crawls behind my legs and hides me until I pull her up into my arms and she hides her face under my chin. (The monsters will never see her there.) Somehow I need to break it to her that she's—a dog and her barks are indeed doglike. Being an only dogchild is not "a good thing", Martha.
We have some work to do in July:
- Learning that the out of doors is pottyland
- Riding in the car is more than just about gagging
- Playing outside is fun (and she'll have fun if it kills me)
- And we must break the magical powers of the pink collar.
Dear fellow Americans, Happy Fourth of July!!!! This is an awesome country to live in. To the rest of youin's, have a great week!
