Yes, really. I took these pics TODAY of our new daffodils out front. So, there IS hope that spring will eventually come to everyone. I know it’s hard to believe it with all the snow and below 0 temps most of the country is experiencing, but here in CA our trees are budding and flowers popping.
In the last few days, our new dog, Gypsy Girl, has managed to decimate three new toys, which are said to be TOUGH. She usually has anything with stuffing, ripped and gutted in under 10 minutes. So, no more soft, batting-filled cutesy toys for her. Nope, got a good old-fashioned cotton braided rope for tug-of-war today. So far, it has held up and she loves to chew, chew, chew it. She definitely is still in that puppy stage.
Much to our relief, Gypsy Girl has settled in to our routine and managed NOT to eat the cats…yet. But she really is a knucklehead at times (I hear you about that sterling quality, Rocketman!) and tends to get too carried away with biting. She has to be able to control that before we can feel safe with our cats around her. Hopefully that will come with maturity (and spaying). She’s getting her shots this coming weekend at a clinic and is getting fixed two weeks from now. So far, she seems to be in perfect health and VERY strong. I think she is a keeper!
