All is well

I believe we are finally well around here. Hopefully we can keep it that way for a while! I just read a very interesting article from the New York post. It's written by a journalist who was assigned to study exotic animal training. She took the positive training ideas and applied them to her life. She has now written a book about the whole experience which I can't wait to read. I find myself absolutely fascinated by the intricate way we can change and shape behaviour of everything and every person we interact with. I first stumbled across Karen Pryor's book called "Don't shoot the dog" (which seemed prudent advice at the time--dealing with another dog, not Molly) years ago. I have been slow to really incorporate the principles into all aspects of my life but it has changed the way we parent and interact with each other for sure! Anyway, I hope some of you can be inspired, too.

Puppies are healthy and growing. They are starting to interact with each other a bit (more than just piling on top of each other). Rustin commented last night, "They look like dogs now!" Very cute.

Oh I can't believe how cute and cuddly they look-- it is all I can do to keep myself from driving up to steal them-- too much dalmation movie (just came out Tuesday and Chase is on constant repeat!)

Oh, Kim!! I'm so sorry to hear your family has been so sick ... we spent 3 weeks in January trying to get everyone in our house well! We had a little bit of EVERYTHING plague us - I thought we would never be among the living again!!!! Hope everyone gets back to perfectly healthy soon :) Your pups are completely adorable!! Love seeing them grow and change.
