This was the day of FAIL.
Well, we did meet two people from the apartment building (people she’s never met before) but other than that our carefully laid plans were abandoned. It’s so hot out there that she starts panting and is miserable in seconds, and I am not bringing her inside stores until she’s had another immunization. I also have two sick-ish kids and a sick-ish husband – those nasty “it’s so hot that you get sick” colds.
You need an update, though, right? Because I gotta tell you, this puppy is TEH CUTE. She’s actually been fantastic as she comes more and more into her personality. She found her voice today and barked at lots and lots of dangerous things, including rubber balls and Bronte’s left hind foot. She’s running and jumping and playing and (be still my heart!) tugging like crazy. She continues to be a puppy who impresses with her happy, calm, “thinking” personality.
I have access to four training centers that I’m comfortable with, and NONE have puppy K classes until mid-September. There’s a drop-in class at a center about an hour away and I’m trying to figure out if I can do it.
Onward to tomorrow!
PS: Am (finally) registering domain names. Blacksheepcardigans.com is open (and will be nabbed by me) but rufflyspeaking.com is gone. Should I register ruffly-speaking.com? Rufflyspeaking.net? Rufflyspeaking.org?
