>relationship woes

>It happens eventually in all new relationships. Those first nagging signs that perhaps you have differing sets of values and goals:

you like chai, he drinks milk
you like pajamas, he sleeps naked
you’re vegetarian, he eats meat
you like cats, he … is reserving judgement

and sometimes it’s even more fundamental issues than mere likes and dislikes:

Yes, I’m afraid Bear and I are having a slight difference of opinion as to what constitutes an acceptable chew toy.

Among the more contentious items are:

any and all phone and computer cords
my good tape measure
the toes of my brown cowdy boots
my skirt/shirt/jumper/elbow/earlobe
anything involving ‘in-progress’ fibre or yarn or the accoutrements thereof
library books
David’s gloves and/or his toy wombat
Oakley’s tail [ and I’ll admit that I was too intent on averting carnage to grab the camera ]

semi acceptable items include:
the bottom half of my PJs
and my slippers

I’m sure we’ll work it out and reconcile our opposing points of view … eventually
on the plus side, however, the puppy training is coming along just fine:

I already know how to open the kitchen door when he needs to go to the toilet, and he has taught me that the ‘sit-ever-so-cutely’ when combined with ‘The Look’ means that I’m supposed to pick him up for a cuddle. I’m a fast learner!

oh, you thought that it was the puppy being trained?

2 more sleeps until the Australian Wool and Sheep Show at Bendigo

    >The very first dog that I ever had the training of was a dachshund mix.Sweet little long-coated thing, who fortunately turned out to love Nylabones. It was only after she had learned to concentrate on her Nylabone that I found out that dachshunds are famous chewer/gnawers.Oh the memories! And look at the cute puppy eyes in that first picture, awwwww (1000).
