So happy new year to all of you and a hope-it's-not-a-very-tiring new year to me
It's been almost 22 years since I had a new puppy.
That's when my son was 13 and it was a birthday present for him so I not only had him to help me take care of a dog I also had another older dog who acted as a mentor.
This is a new thing for me.
I am 22 years older
With a new puppy
in Portland [it rans a lot]
In a floating home
I won't bore you with puppy pictures and puppy tales all the time- but I will occasionally post things about how having a new puppy is both a good idea for someone who is aging and also some of the pitfalls – like it's hard to do some things and this will be a constant until we mesh schedules [which will happen soon as she is so smart]
