(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Guide Dog Puppy Drexel at Almost 6-Months Old



I love fuzzy puppy faces.

"Is this photo shoot about over? I'm tired!"

Drexel helping me with the piano pedals.  He also started dusting (notice the wet spots where he licked the piano), but obviously didn't finish the job. I'm mortified my piano was so dusty.

Thanks for a sweet puppy.

    How is Drexel's training progressing? What adventures have you taken with him?

    1. My main job as a puppy raiser is to help Drexel become well-socialized and well-behaved. He's doing fine so far. He goes with us practically everywhere; he's been to stores, banks, doctor's offices, church, restaurants, etc. We also have outings with other puppy raisers; we'll be attending a Hollywood Bowl performance later this summer, for example.

  5. He is absolutely adorable!! I have such a soft spot for labs.

    Just curious...how do you manage his shedding?

    Take care!

    1. I'm afraid I don't have a miracle answer--I just brush Drexel, vacuum my house, and carry a lint roller!

  7. Wonderful pictures of a wonderful nose! I just love yellow labs! I think what you do is just wonderful but I don't know if I could let them go! I know I could, I would just cry a lot afterwards! Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…
