Buddy is 3 months old now and managed to survive a shot and micro-chipping.
The vet also gave us some great advice on training a puppy.I remember, a long time ago at the Tanana Valley Fair, I was walking though the big building with all the art and poetry exhibits and booths for everything imaginable. I was mostly saying, "No thanks.......sorry, not interested" (not interested in filling out a slip for a drawing so you can call me and pester me about buying what you sell later). Anyway, I walked by this table where a "nice" looking woman sat with some books. I always stop when I see books. One of the books said something about chocolate on the back so I decided to get that one. The woman was the author, Nita Nettleton, and she was this instantly likable person that somehow felt more REAL than most people. I chatted with her a bit and then she signed my book. She spelled out my full name and then wrote "I hope you enjoy this story - (never strand yourself without enough chocolate!) and then signed it and left her email address. hmmmm I wonder if it is still a good email for her. This book isn't that long but I've found myself savoring it.... just like I used to do with life-savers when I was a kid and chocolate now that I'm older. I read a section and then I like to stop and think about it for a bit, imagining myself in her place.
Currently Reading: The Wake-Up Call of the Wild
This is a book about a woman that wakes up bruised and battered with a bandage around her head at a remote cabin in Alaska. She doesn't remember anything, not her name or how she came to be out in the middle of Nowhere, Alaska. But, she does find an unlikely friend in a young female badger and realizes she likes being there and spending time with her own thoughts.
I can't tell you more than that because I'm still reading. I'll probably be done with it tomorrow.
I've been feeling better since sometime yesterday. I made myself a hair appointment for yesterday
I was really tired today (Wednesday) so I took a nice long nap but so far not having bad pain. I'm so glad since I really needed a break from that for a while. I really enjoyed reading outside in my chair parked in the sunshine this afternoon while Buddy played in the shade. It is such a beautiful summer day! I just love the days when I can get out and enjoy the beauty of my world and warmth of the sunshine. Life is good and I'm loving my Buddy Boy!
