Taking a closer look

One of my favorite things about being a mother and a teacher is how children view their world. They see things we overlook. This photo from a few days ago, demonstrates that I was not only the teacher, but the student.

“I like noticing details that no one else sees.”

Who’s a good boy?

Charlie is recovering from his puppy surgery. He was snipped and chipped on Thursday.

Gary Larson’s Far Side cartoon (above) always come to mind when I hear of an animal being neutered. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, look him up, you’re in for a treat.

Did someone say treat?

Charlie seems to be recovering well but I’m not sure how I’ll keep him on limited activity for 10 days. I hope we can make it for 7.

He looks adorable in the cone and really only needs it if he’s being left alone or at night. Charlie is doing well, but doesn’t understand that running around the house and leaping down the stairs are not what to doctor ordered.
