So it’s been a few months, and I still miss my dog, but things are getting back to normal. So much so, in fact, that a week ago we picked up our new family addition, a GoldenDoodle our 4-year-old has named “Casper.” Not sure I was completely ready yet, but I think kids need a dog, and the two little ones are doing a great job of taking care of him so far. Each day after school they go out back and run and play with the dog, the six-year-old will take him out to go potty, and they’re doing pretty well at helping with the things we ask them. We’ll see how things go when I show them how to clean up the yard. Might be a little pushback there. 🙂
And so far, all things considered, the pup is doing well. Has a penchant for getting messy and then hopping on furniture, but that’s part of being a puppy.
Anyhow, woke up early the other day and thought I’d mess around on my iPad for awhile when I couldn’t get back to sleep. No masterpiece by any stretch, but it made me smile (though it’s mighty hard to draw a dog and make it look like it’s smiling, at least with my very meager skills.) Make it a great day!
