Well, good morning! I’m typing this on Friday evening, as we sit in eager (?) anticipation of the arrival of Winter Storm Helena to the south. My entire office was closed today in Huntsville as were all of the schools. Here in GA, they sent everyone home early. No doubt to swing by the grocery store to get the obligatory 25 loaves of bread and 37 gallons of milk!
We refrained from a grocery run, but did have to go buy a few bags of feed for the Old Man. So…we took Finn-Chewie with us. I kind of didn’t want to, cuz the last time we went he resembled a bass at the end of the leash. Completely whack. So I almost took the easy way out and left him here. But, as Wayne pointed out, he’ll never figure it out if we never take him.
Dang – I hate when he’s all logical and right like that!!
Well. Apparently the work Finny and I have been doing in the mornings – on the leash, with training treats and the clicker – are paying off!! He was very very good! Perfect? Oh, no – not even. But…under control. Looked like a dog not a fish! Even did some stay-come-heel work. It wasn’t easy for him – lots of people he was sure wanted to pet him….but. He kept it together! I was very very proud.
He was a little surprised that I had so little faith…
When I got home, I whipped up a little card to share, using the pretty new stamp set called Mediterranean Moments. This one was created by Susan Nygaard – when she hit a Million Dollars in Sales! When I hit a million – my stamp set’s going to have a Haflinger and an Aussie – and not cartoon ones, either! Pretty ones – like in this set!
I used a nice little sentiment from the Sitting Here stamp set, and put it all together with some of the Falling in Love DSP. Take a look-see:
