*** The puppy slept from 10:30-7AM- my brain issue may be from shock and overload of sleep.
***We had him groomed yesterday and he didn't stink for about an hour. Yeah us, for an hour!
***We have enlisted the pennies in a can discipline, as suggested, and it's working beautifully- he's scared to do anything wrong- I've always thought fear=well behaved.
***I am having anxiety about my kids going back to school next week (I never thought I would say that!), because I will have to take care of the puppy all day, myself!!!
