Afternoon Open Thread: Puppy Update

Official 12-week portrait

I’m not sure what I did to get such a good puppy. She’s sweet as can be and training has been a breeze so far. Which is great, because I’m not sure how I would have kept up with a pup who was challenging me at every turn (I’m looking up to heaven at you Bixby).

She always looks so serious in photos – I think it’s the black-rimmed eyes. She’s really not that serious. Mostly she’s bouncing around like Tigger, looking for someone to play with her.

More photos of her and Scout here (can’t bore the non-respite folks, LOL).

I’m trying to use this week between the holidays to finish up my latest book, but work keeps getting in the way. I usually take this week off from my “real” job, didn’t work out this year.

How is everyone else spending their last week of 2021? And may I say, from my personal experience this year, hurry the fuck out the door and good riddance.

In other personal news, I used my first (state-issued) at-home covid test – negative, thank dog! – yesterday. I was feeling a bit under the weather and didn’t want to go out and infect everyone. Only slightly more nerve-wracking than an at-home pregnancy test.
