I thought it might be fun to document Deedee's days here, and so A Dose of Deedee debuts today. (For those of you who are most observant, I realized today when I looked at Deedee's paperwork, that her name only has one capital letter in it. I spelled it incorrectly in the last post.)
Today was a day of introductions:

It was also a day of fun:

Learning has begun. Deedee's insights for today:
- Glass doors are only successfully navigable when they are open.
- Kristi says that chew toys, and only chew toys, are for chewing--though I think bright pink shoelaces are very tempting!
- "Roughhouse" isn't in Kristi's vocabulary, but whenever I try to teach her, she takes me in the back yard to run around.
- Praise follows "Do your business" (whatever that means!)
