First, thank you Soogee for the beautifully presented birthday gift! I do not know when you are finding the time to do stuff like that with a new puppy in the house!

I actually have a lot of thanks today -
Thanks to Stacey, who is holding my hand through one of the rescues she volunteers at, as I apply for a gorgeous boy that I'm afraid to get my hopes up about. I have already missed a couple of dogs who got adopted before my app was approved at various rescues.

I have filled out half a dozen rescue apps. They're like college apps, some of them. They want to know your whole philosophy of dog training, "and be specific." That one took an hour and a half to fill out! But they're not all so bad.

Many thanks to Vicki and the Zs for being one of my references (not family) on all these apps. They call her up and ask for all the skinny on me.

Thanks to Barb who let me pick her brains for hours on the phone last night about doodle puppies. I don't think I can do that right now, as I told her, but if this rescue idea doesn't work, even with patience after some time I guess I'll have to get a dog direct from the manufacturer, as they say.

The search continues. I am hopeful ...

      no memory of wrapping up my gifts. Just kidding (almost). I just tell him that I have things to do for others and he understands (I must be on heavy medication if even I believe that one). Actually... more

      It is hard to be without a doodle, so here's hoping this one works out soon. How wonderful to have Barb available to provide counseling on what you are looking for!

      I will send positive thoughts for that gorgeous boy and, if not him, for a gorgeous doodle that is meant to be by your side.
