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: 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…
