An Update on Mindy

Mindy, the puppy we are raising for Leader Dogs, is almost 5 months old now. What a delightful dog. This one is really going to be hard to part with.  She is very food motivated and learns quickly. The only difficulty we have with her, is that she is very friendly and gets so excited when she meets anyone. We have taken her many times to CafĂ© Clare for lunch and she is really good once we get her to the table but on the way she wants to greet everyone she passes. This weekend we will take her to Ohio to visit my daughter and next weekend we will take her to the Lions convention in Grand Rapids so we are doing our best to expose her to people.

Back to the Cold North

We are back from our Panama cruise.  It was wonderful.  Every day the temperature was in the 80's and the sea was as smooth as glass. I spent my time on the veranda doing cross stitch and enjoying the warmth. Tomorrow I weigh in at Weight Watchers, so that will be the moment of truth.  I am going on another quilting retreat tomorrow.  Life is hard.
