Puppies versus Reading Time
Margaret Kennedy Day has come and gone but like a runner determined to finish the crossing line of their first marathon...I will finish The Ladies of Lyndon!
Kip's favourite new toy is our metal measuring spoons - the clatter is ideal because I know where he is. The smart approach to puppy training is not to let them play with things you don't want them making off with as they grow older. It all goes out the window when you're desperate for your puppy to fixate on something other than your nose or glasses. This morning Kip was offered a pot holder from the stove drawer when his other toys became old news. It bought me twenty blissful minutes to savour a cup of tea before two hours of 'catch me if you can' and cuddling. We need new pot holders anyway....
Off to read a few more pages before Kip rattles his crate to announce nap time is over. Busy but very happy!
