Pre Teen Jubuliance

Wow, that puppy has become a wild preteen.  Willing to break the rules. 

  •  “Can I run for it?’
  •  “Do I really have to go into the back yard?”
  • “What happens if I chew on that?”
  • “Can I get to the cat litter box if I run fast enough?”
  • “How deep can I dig that hole?”

I know why most dogs are surrendered between 6 months and 18 months of age.  She’s not yet 6 months but rapidly developing that attitude.  Just this morning, she ruined my favorite skirt by putting holes in it.  And yet there are those moments where she runs around with all that joy and energy from just being alive.  It makes me laugh and curse.  I am more alive with emotion because of her.

And she’s spurred a new craft for me — making dog toys.  Big heavy hard to tear apart dog toys.  I’ve made several different types and am letting her and other dogs test them.  The purple one seems to be a winner for the smaller dogs.  This bigger one needs a different type of rope. o the prototypes being dog tested.  Once I figure out the right ate rials, how much rope is needed, and write the patterns, I’ll have some great kits for sale.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
