Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Lily and Lola Report Card/Update.
Bouncing. Yep. Check. Satisfactory.
Walking on leashes. Well. Needs work.
Unsupervised in-house behavior. Oh, not good at all. Unsatisfactory.
Unsupervised outside behavior. Ha. Ask the UPS guy. And the neighborhood squirrels.
Digestion and food habits.
Rug -- chewed, swallowed, deposited in back yard.
Peanut Butter. Good. Will do anything for peanut butter -- humans best friend (and they say dog is).
Dog food. Science Diet and Iams weren't expensive enough. We have now moved on to organic allergy free. Lily developed an allergy to her food (interesting since she has eaten things that would kill a lesser being). How do we know? The ears swelled and turned red and her sister licked them until she developed little scabs. Surely she had ear mites. Nope, the vet said it was a food allergy. The new food has been an adventure. The lamb and potato or maybe the venison and barley blend leaves an after odor. Like some folks have garlic scent that oozes from sweat glands and pores... Lily and Lola smell a little like a down-and-out drunk man in an alley. So, in an attempt to deal with this unpleasant side effect, Doggy Mama purchased the vegetarian flavor. Guess what that does? Think fiber and bubbles...very, very bad bubbles.
Cuteness. Life saving A+
Tardies. Never late for dinner.
Enthusiasm. Over the top.
