Puppies name is:


He is a very good puppy most of the time. House training is going...well sometimes and not so well others. We are thinking about crate training him but have not decided for sure. 

 We got him a new bed today and he definitely needs to grow into it but we couldn't see getting him one he would outgrow in a couple of months.

Right now life is all about Thor :)

So yesterday I flew home. Right before Michael picked ME up at the airport he picked HIM up from a breeder:

HE is an 8 week old black lab. We still have to name him. He might be named "toothless" which makes perfect sense after having "buzz lightyear" for 13 years. One thing I know for sure is he is NOT toothless and I have the scratch to prove it :)

Some new happenings

I decided to go to my nephew's wedding in the Nauvoo temple on Feb. 19. As an added bonus I got to see my mom and dad who came home from their mission to attend. It was fun to see Krista and her family. Then I came to Kansas to visit my family and help Diane prepare to move. My plan was to stay until Friday then go to the OKC temple with my family again and then drive on back to Arkansas. However, I got sick and spent Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday in bed at my sister's home (I thought I would let my daughter have her weekend with her husband). I am finally starting to feel better and will probably head back to Arkansas tomorrow or Thursday.

Today I had a fun experience though. A friend has a couple Golden Retrievers that she has trained as search and rescue dogs. She asked my sisters that are living in Wichita and I if we would like to go out with her on a training exercise and let her dogs find us. So we went and did that and had a blast. They came and searched for us twice and we did a lot of hiking in the woods (or at least as much of woods as you get in They were very good at finding us too. It was sure a fun way to get my exercise in for the day :)
