A Dose of Deedee at 11 Weeks Old

Deedee is 11 weeks old today, and would like to share her insights from the past week with you.
Deedee's insights:

1.  My most notable accomplishment is that I now know what is meant by "Wait."  I don't even have to be told (but Kristi says it every time anyway!).  Before every meal, I try to ignore the bowl of food.  I've learned that's the fastest way to get to eat!



2.  In the evenings, sometimes Kristi and John sit down and direct their attention to the screen on the wall.  I must admit, it is quite interesting!  Sometimes, I even forget about my toys and get distracted by what's happening on the wall.


3.  Kristi still won't let me enjoy her shoelaces.  She doesn't seem to realize that I must always have something in my mouth, and her shoelaces are better than any toy! Well, that might be a stretch--she does seem to know that I always have something in my mouth.  It's some sort of superpower she has.  I mean, really, can you tell that I had a rock in my mouth in this photo?  


Kristi knew, and she made me spit it out. 

She seems to think I will outgrow this phase.  Something about teething and puppy teeth falling out. I'm not sure I like the sound of that!

Kristi says that I get to go to the vet for a shot next week.  I'm not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds exciting!

Stay tuned for another Dose of Deedee!  Wait. . . wait. . .

  1. Love the Deedee updates! What huge paws she has. I'll bet she'll be a big lady when she's all grown up. I love her sweet face and feeling a bit jealous.... would love to have a sweet doggie like her. Give her a smootch for me, will you?!

    1. I think she will be big. The puppy truck always brings me big dogs. :-) (Willow was small, but she came to be as an older puppy--I didn't pick her up off the puppy truck.)

    1. Looking forward to the teething thing being behind us, but she is a quick learner. :-)

  4. The Deedee insights are interesting. I've never raised a puppy, but it sounds like things are going really well.

    1. Puppies grow up so quickly, that even the annoyances (like chewing on everything) end soon. Deedee is a good puppy, and I think will make a great guide dog.

  5. I can't get enough Deedee face! Our foster pups liked flip flops. No matter how sure you were they were out of her reach, here she'd come, dragging a flip flop. Both of them liked to chew on rocks and sticks. And table legs. And the brick around the fireplace. And, and, and... :)

  6. Oh, that cute, "I'm innocent" look she has on her face as she smiles around her rock. :-)

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: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK.

Ten Things of Thankful: From Sunrise to Moonset

Cars and trucks on a highway travel toward the rising sun                                    John and I made a quick, task-oriented trip to California last week. We wore our masks and stayed at an acceptable social distance from others (which is hard for grandchildren to understand, but we mostly succeeded.) We're now home, and at the "I need a vacation to recover from my 'vacation' " stage, which makes sitting down to compose a TToT post a bit of a challenge. However, I know that I will feel better by the end of this post, so bear with me if you will.  1. I'm thankful that we had no problems with traffic going there or coming home. We left our hotel at about quarter to four on Friday morning. The early start, fewer families traveling this year, or, most likely, a combination of the two, made for an easy drive.  2. I'm thankful for books to help pass the time. We haven't actually finished yet (as I was reading aloud, and my voice can only last for so l
