so, i promise not to overwhelm this blog with puppy love talk but,
i just have to say again,
we love this dog.
she's fuzzy and curly and soft,
her close-set eyes are pitiful and crack us up.
winnie mae leans on our legs and sleeps on our feet.
she's stands on her long legs, paws on the counter, trying to snatch any morsel of food that might be there.
she's WAY TOO interested in what those clucking, jittery, feathered creatures are in the backyard.
she ate the tail off of Lucy's Angelina Ballerina mouse.
coming home after being out, it's so much fun looking forward to her excited greeting.
we missed that.
ok, enough gushing for now.
we're all animal-lovers here.
this Girlie had been asking to learn how to ride a horse forEVER.
my husband is a teacher and one of his students offered to give Lucy lessons.
my heart soared watching her, knowing how happy she was.
before she got dessert, she had to eat her vegetables by mucking out the stall, learning all the ins & outs of caring for a horse, feeding her, brushing her.
that was one heavy shovelful!
i'm so thankful for her fearlessness, for the boldness He placed in her personality. unlike her shy mama (growing up), she's not going to miss out on many adventures in God's great big world!
happy Friday, y'all. do you have big plans for the weekend?
nothing much's going on here unless getting my hair done counts - woo-hoo! (the grey has grown out to the embarrassment stage.)
