Sis is almost 15 months and I find myself doing things with her that I would never have done with a youngster in my past life. Maybe because I did not have any dog except Gyp at this age.....Nell, Bella and Dot came to me older. Maybe because I have the opportunities to do interesting real work now or maybe, and mostly likely, because I have changed over the years.
At the end of the day, it is fun watching Sis sort things out. I'm trying to listen with my eyes and hear what she is telling me. My goals for myself are to work on allowing Sis to grow up, to learn things for herself, to be of help when she needs it, and to trust the whole process. I believe those are Sis's goals for me too.
Seize the Day!
