One Year Ago Today

Dear Mom,

January 29, 2010.
My Hero comes home from work with this.
Someone fell instantly in love.
It wasn't me.
But  puppy breath won me over.

Even when wearing her out was my biggest challenge and seemed to be the focus of my days.

I've worked hard to teach her manners and lady-like behavior.

We're still working on that.
Patsy has taken me places I never thought I would go... like doggie daycare.
I have things I never thought I would a membership to the dog park.
And I've met people I never thought I would need to a Canine Behavior Specialist.
And others that have become my dog park friend Sherri, the mom of Patsy's chum, Ace.

There have been naughty puppy moments. And I expect there will be more.

'Cuz wearin' her out is still important.
But we're getting there.
