Claire @ Almost Five Months

With grades turned in, the Spring 2017 semester is officially D.O.N.E. To celebrate, Claire and I went for a walk at the river.

The Moral Compass

So far, so good. That is the morning report on Zoey. Paws crossed it stays that way.

A Yardstick and a Wish

Yesterday was quite an interesting look at human beings, including myself. I realized this very clearly -- we have varying degrees of outrage about the bad behavior of other people, and there is no consensus on what accountability should look like. 

Mothers' Day

We won't sully this day with the soap opera -- Episode Three will appear tomorrow. Instead, today we rest our hearts and minds on Relationships.

As The Testicles Turn, Episode 2: Alternative Facts

Rules, like Truth, really ruin a good story, don't they? Welcome, Friends and Frienemies, to our next episode of...

As The Testicles Turns: A Soap Opera (Part One)

It was a dark and stormy night  It was a dog show. 

"Why aren't you showing that beautiful dog?!" said the well-regarded judge to Marti who was walking Kidd. 

And so begins our first episode of As the Testicles Turn...

New Title!

Deb noted a new title that Claire has earned (over and over): Counter Surfer Extraordinaire (CSE). Because she is from a family of achievers, Claire has advanced to the next level -- I call it Counter Surfer Extraordinaire Excellent, or CSEX (Lisa K is cackling about now ;).

The Rest of the Story

I had a nagging sense there was something subtly different on Zoey's right side - just a wee bit of fullness or bulge. In addition, Zoey had twice pooped in an inappropriate place at the Specialty -- not diarrhea but just as if she was having a normal potty break in a not normal place. Zoey doesn't do things like that.

Except for a propensity to stand on kitchen tables, Zoey just doesn't do inapproriate things -- and now that I think about it, a nearly nine year old berner that can jump on a table should be celebrated so never mind -- she is basically perfect and therefore the abnormal potty spots were odd and therefore, concerning.

Tears and Ripples

4:00 a.m. and Zoey was nestled in. Perfect time for reflection, right?

That Face (and that one!)

This is the face of a Counter Surfer Extraordinaire!
