Here she is…blond hair, brown eyes, cute little smile and four legs; Gracie.
She is an 11 week old golden doodle. Mom is a golden retriever, dad a poodle. She arrived in my home at 8pm on Saturday night. She is a little ball of fur and a bundle of joy.
So far so good, she is training well and has a mild disposition. I know it’s early but I will take whatever I can get. Gracie will train to become a therapy dog. This will start with puppy manner classes that I will enroll in within the next few weeks. It should be fun and a learning experience for both of us.
Yesterday I sent out calendars to family members as a delayed Happy New Year. I am hopeful that they will add a little sunshine and warmth to this time of year. Tomorrow I have more sunshine mail planned.
Last week was a real challenge with the cold, wind, snow and ice. Today our temperatures got up to 28 degrees and it was wonderful. The sunshine also felt bright and nourishing. I am reading for an uplifting week. Between my small activities and my new furry family member I can tell it’s going to be a great week.
If you are reading this – I am sending you my best, warm wishes and thank you for sharing my puppy sentiments.
