animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


Jake got a new dog about two weeks ago. The short version of the story is that the mom of one of his friends was looking to rehome the dog. Anyway, her name is Tilly and she’s a Golden Retriever. She’s a pretty sweet dog and after a few questionable days, she and Ralphie are getting along well.

And just to complicate things further, I’m watching my ex-dog while my ex-husband is on vacation (where is my award?). The ex-dog isn’t a fan of new people, dogs, or experiences so I was afraid this was going to be a disaster, but everyone has been getting along just fine. Phew! Having three dogs is a lot, though. I mean, I used to have three of my own, but I would definitely not do that again.
