puppy week!

april the flake

While our son and daughter-in-law were out east last week, we watched their eighteen month old puppy, April. Nothing reminds you of how old you are as trying to to keep up with a lab/border collie on a leash in a foot of fresh snow! It was fun having such a goofball in the house though. She encouraged Kensi to play with her a few times, and her bark was so loud even Max could hear it! Which lead to a few shouting matches. "Why are we barking?!" ha! On the down side, I now have approximately ten stuffed toys to restuff and sew.

As crazy as the week was, I think we'll stick with short-legged, slow-moving pugs where naps are the top priority. That's more our speed.

Hope you all encounter a wonderful New Year ahead!
