Riley is 5 months old today! He is (mostly) potty-trained, bites a lot less than he used to, can sit and lie down on command, and is becoming a good leash-walker. I often have to remind myself that he will not be a puppy forever - thank goodness! Puppies are sure cute, but a happy well-adjusted dog just can't be beat.David found a treat at Petsmart that I am beginning to think of as the Miracle Chew. They're pig skin. Like all dog products, they're not cheap, but thinking of the many hours of peace these chews will give me makes me think it was a good investment! The cats, who are presently not being chased, agree.Just in case, though, Holly is hiding. See? Can't see her can you? Sorry about the poor picture quality - the flash was off.
8:30 addition: Early bedtime for the doggy. He finally succeeded in his quest to capture the cord to the lamp. The lamp came crashing off the table and the room went dark. He won't be a puppy forever, he won't be a puppy forever, he won't be a puppy forever.

3 pairs of socks
It has not been above freezing here in 2010. This morning it is 1.2 degrees with a bitter wind chill. A tiny trailer in the Florida Keys? Is looking pretty good!

Two years ago, when David and I were honeymooning in Key West, we saw this frame in an eclectic art shop. I loved it, but left it behind. I took a picture of it thinking that I'd make my own sometime. Like most of those projects, that never happened. On Christmas, I opened a big box containing a large wooden something wrapped in tissue paper. I didn't have any idea what it was until I tore off the paper. And then...I shed a few tears. I can't believe that David remembered that frame and how much I'd liked it. Now all that is missing is one of our wedding pictures in the middle. Love that husband of mine!
