Yep, He's a Big Puppy

At our guide dog meeting last night, one of the leaders asked me how much Reno weighs now.  She has kept records of the weights of the puppies in the club.  Out of curiousity, she looked back through her records to compare Reno's weight with the weight of the past puppies.  She was particularly interested in seeing if Reno's weight was comparable to one particular dog's--the "gentle giant".  Guess what?  Reno is 7 pounds heavier than that dog was at Reno's age! 

Thankful thought:  Thanks to Reno for being such a mild-mannered puppy--rambunctious and huge would be hard to handle!

  2. I got on the computer to search for a printable visiting teaching message for this month and found your blog. I noticed the guide dog tab right away. I have a son who is blind (no dog though). Anyway, I am excited I found you and hope you'll check out my blog sometime. It's called Snippets 'N Stuff. Here's the link... http://www.snippetsnstuff.com .

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
