Thanksgiving Day has come and gone, but my home is still filled with visitors. I'm thankful for the time I get to spend with relatives, and am thankful for your understanding if I am a bit tardy in responding to your comments this weekend.
As this is the 25th week of the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop, I thought I should make this post particularly meaningful. I'm a glass-half-full kind of person by nature, but I wanted to come up with a post that was a bit challenging for me, and thus this post was born.

As I've mentioned before, I'm a volunteer puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind.My current puppy, Drexel, generally has very good house manners.
