Our club meeting was at an outdoor shopping space. you know lots of parking lots and big box stores all around. We stoped in at petsmart and looked at all the poor pups in doggy day care on a sunny Saturday, I tossed the pup in a cart with her food, just too many people, dogs and carts. she was all over her brothers and I was sick and frazzled so the easiest thing was put her in the cart.
All the Kentucky pup's decided to take advantage of the carpet at best buy to have a puppy pile.

although it looks like more, she really only has grown about 5 inches and doubled her weight. Not my baby anymore.

While not totally her fault she has done it again.
Taco bell's person was walking her, when a dog came up and tried to bite her on the butt! Not to worry her person loves her very much and literally kicked some K-9 ass, she also told off the dog owner who of course swears that the dog is friendly - yeah we've heard that song before. Well walking away her person had a tight grip in the leash- actually wrapped around her fingers and then around the corner comes another dog. Hyped up from the last dog encounter, Taco lurched away from the dog and ended up twisting her person's finger. A spiral fracture is what they say.
that's two toe's and now one finger - OUCH!

Ok -so the vet visit didn't exactly make her day, but because she has her big girl shots I promised her that she could come with us on our next walk to the park.
Here is the Truf-Truf waiting at the vet for her shots. For some reason she is 16 weeks but her actual month date is the 14th, they almost wouldn't giver her shots until they counted for themselves.

Truffle: Can I go and play now?
Carrie: what did you learn?
Truffle: Don't eat markers they make your poop a funny color and cause all sorts of strange pictures of you to be posted on the web.
Carrie: *sigh* I'm gonna have to get a better tie down.

|Truffie about 4 or 5 months old, just after I caught her eating the Cherry sented Mr. Sketchy, her lips and chin are pink|
|Truffie on the floor of my office getting the marker wiped off her face, her paws are stained pink/red making her look like a serial killer|
|Puppy on the floor with pink paws|
|a close up of a pink paw, it has even colored her toe nails|
|I am holding Truf's mouth open, and you can see how bright pink her entire mouth is. Only her bitty baby teeth are white - tongue, cheeks, roof of her mouth all pink|
|the culprit sitting there posing with this very 'so what' look on her face. Very naughy but so stinking cute we couldn't help but love her.|

here is the letter from Nisha's mom about her recall.
It's official--yesterday I received my letter from GDB saying it was time for Nisha to go to Big Girl School! In one week!! Yikes--so many people to see and say goodbye to! Instead of dropping her off at the puppy truck at the Ontario , we're driving up Thursday and taking her on a sight seeing tour of SF before she begins boot camp. Then there's a Reception for Raisers . at the kennel from 10-3 and I'll have the opportunity to take her to her new diggs. It will be a rude awakening--definitely no golf course view...
If not guide work, I feel there's a career in Nisha's future as she is a very talented girl--too talented to be a pet (I think)! Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers these coming weeks.

1)Waffle: a tired dog is a bad dog- so make sure to get lots of sleep at night and in the car that way you can be up alert and active when at work, and in meetings.
2)Waffle: any water bottle is fair game to play with - Fibber they get really bent when you take the ones with stuff in them
3)Waffle: If you lay on your back and wave all 4 paws at the clouds it will rain kibble - uuuummmmmm ok I think she is lying about that one BUT not sure about that one yet, what if it really happened
4)Waffle: all good guide dogs practice standing on their heads- I did this everyday for a week, b4 the peeps told me the truth.
5)Waffle: There really is a puppy in the mirror-naw-uhhh I checked.....several times just to be sure
6)Waffle: Chasing your tail builds character - I figured that one our myself when the peeps kept laughing at me.
7)Waffle: Farting in public is totally acceptable - yeah get real even I knew that one was a fib
8)Waffle: Carrie enjoys a morning serenade, it helps her wake up....and she needs to be up at 5:30 to get to work - ok even I don't like my singing - especially in the morning, but I kept it up in the hopes of getting an early breakfast
9)Waffle: people have so many shoes they won't miss one or two..... she was half right, you need to hide the evidence some place where they won't find it and the top fib Waffle has told me! The yellow in me will wash out in the rain! FIBBER! I checked after I had a bath.
All new pups beware what your older sibs tell you. Especially you yellow squishy dog, I can only imagine what the Chesely Belle will tell you.
and the top fib Waffle has told me! The yellow in me will wash out in the rain! FIBBER! I checked after I had a bath.

Out on the windswept plain, our lone yellow wolf-dog spies her prey.....slowly and cautiously she approaches. its been ever so long since her last meal (3 hours) and she is ravenous. If she manages to capture the elusive black dog she can feast for weeks. This is also a fight for survival, the canine pup-ulation has doubled in recent weeks and territorial fights will establish who rules the roost (aka The Waffle House)
misjudging the speed of her prey the yellow wolf-dog races after her prey, both in full fight they are a sight to see.
As they race majestically across the wide open planes of the backyard a surprise turn of events has the black dog turning the tables on our poor hungry pup and confronts our lone yellow wolf-dogDeciding that retreating to fight another day is the best course of action our lone yellow dog departs the battle field and seeks solace in a nice bowl of kibble.
