People craft– taking care of yourself

My husband and I are having so much fun with daughter Janice’s pound puppy!  During Thanksgiving break, Janice picked out a Caine terrier, but there were two  dogs, very attached to each other, from the same litter.  Another person wanted to take both of them.  Two cages down, she saw and selected a darling Wheaten Terrier mini poodle mix.   The Whoodle is not a breed but a mix.  Janice can’t have her dog in her dorm but can enjoy May-Belle whenever she’s home.  After she graduates and lives in a place that allows dogs, she can take May-Belle.  Gracie the Whoodle (Wheaten / Poodle mix)

    Thanks for inviting us over to meet May-Belle. Our boys Jake and Max are enjoying the chocolate lab Rob bought for them. No one can be sad around a dog, particularly a puppy!

    Mary Alice, Rob is very gentle and consistent with training your dog Hershey. He’s a good role model in every way for Jake and Max. Your boys knew how to keep May-Belle calm!

    We’re working on that! The first week I carried May-Belle in her little round doggy bed to the park while walking Barkley. There I’d put her leash on and get her used to it, but I was actually following her around. Today for the first time Barkley, May-Belle and I made it to the park and back without using the dog bed. I think having another dog makes it easier. May-Belle follows Barkley.

    That’s good. Isn’t it nuts that the Kelly’s dog, Duke, when going on a walk, just plops down and won’t get up?

    Yup, poor Denise! Duke is their son’s dog, but he didn’t leash train him as a puppy. Duke just went out into their back yard. Now Denise is trying to help Duke get the hang of going on a walk. Eventually he’ll get it!

  6. Hello, RomRumbleyCottage! Yours is a heartfelt question. I think I will be able to give up our canine darling because we wouldn’t have him if it weren’t for daughter Janice’s prodding! Acually, this was “the deal” we made with her because our senior terrier Barkley is 14, and my husband eventually wants to be dog-less. Thank you for thinking of how difficult it probably will be, though!
