Did Everyone Get Their Gold Star?

I’ve been noticing more and more that people, in general, are less concerned with anyone else in the world. Their focus is completely on their own, little, limited world and how it relates to who they are and what they want and what they need. Anyone else’s needs – if they don’t directly relate to their own – are outside of that scope and are of no importance. It’s plain and simple; black and white; cut and dry.

Housetraining 101

3 Comments

Our journey into the housetraining realm of dog-ownership has been … well … challenging. And I think what makes it the most challenging is that we got a very late start on the process. Had we gotten them much earlier than the 9 months old they were – if we would have gotten them when they were mere puppies – I believe we would have had an easier time of it. Though, in all truth and honesty, I think Panda trained herself from the moment she was conceived. I don’t believe she’s ever left us any little gifts to find (and clean) except for the one time (which may have¬†been¬†truly an accident).

Ah, the Life of a Dog Person

Up until about 2 years ago, my hubby was not, in the least, interested in having a dog of any kind. The reason is because when he was a child, he and his mother were chased by a pack of dogs – which would be enough to scare the life out of any child into adulthood, and away from ever having a dog. (I won’t go into detail with any of his numerous stories about dogs as he was growing up and as a teenager, but I will mention that there were nervous twitchings, frozen stares, and some licking done.)

Random Thoughts (Part II)

I occasionally have these random thoughts. Rather than letting them die a lonely death, I decided to write them down until I had enough of them to post here. These are the ideas that I thought, “Gee, I should post a blog about that,” but then realize it’s either too stupid or short (or both) to create an entire blog posting for, so I save them in Evernote (I love that app!) until I have enough of them saved to torture you with them. So, as you read, you may be thinking, “Perhaps some of them should have died that lonely death….”

This is my second installment of “Random Thoughts.” So enjoy… or not.
