I know one thing it is a good thing puppies are cute. This little stinker chews, bites, runs through flower beds. But she's just a puppy right. The key is surviving that puppy stage and trying to teach them not to do those things. And I thought kids were tough. This paticular day she got into trouble for beating up my hosta. Couldn't resist a picture after she got in trouble. She knew she was bad. The journaling reads"You have children. You raise them. They get married or buy a house and move out. Suddenly you find yourself all alone. What do you do? You get a puppy. Lucy is for the most part a ray of sunshine in my day. But this paticular day she found herself in trouble for jumping, laying, chewing, whatever she could think to do to my hosta. I got this picture after she had gotten in trouble. Who could resist that face and stay mad for long. she looks like she is begging for forgiveness."
