There was a women’s basketball game tonight, but I never made it out of the house. I try to give Holmes his half hour with his dad every day (it makes him sleep through the night). Once they started playing, I just couldn’t leave. Agree?

It isn’t over till the fat lady yells “cut it out!”
Holmes is at the office — so much like having his dad here when Chase was a puppy. We are expecting “Jean from NM” for a visit — needs her puppy fix. In the meantime, Holmes’ job is to keep me from working.
A toy — any toy — no matter how battered

We’ve made many trips out to the grass, but Holmes thinks grass is for romping. I have a piddle pad in the office which he’s used once (good boy), but he’s really not catching on to the plan. I could put a few shavings on the piddle pad, but I want him to transfer his urges to the great out of doors. It will come . . .
Holmes is a little lonely — even though he and his Dad had a grand frap this evening. Holmes came to the office with me today, and has already christened the carpet and warned off those strangers walking near my front door. This was not intended as his first office day, but he escaped from the puppy prison this morning. This evening, to avoid damage to his family jewels, I took out the pen’s side door, and bought him a little stool on which he can climb to get back in. At the office, he had no problem with the lead when we went outside, but he does have a problem with the grass: it smells great, a puppy can roll in it, carry leaves, but a real bathroom has shavings. Tomorrow I’ll bring Chase along and perhaps Holmes will mimic his Dad.
I am past sixty-five and still practicing law. I have two terrific sons, they have lovely wives, and I have one truly special granddaughter. At home are three Cardigan Welsh Corgis that amuse and challenge me. We participate in lots of dog-related activities. I love my camera, writing, and roaming. I live in central New Mexico because it's where I want to be. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your (tasteful) comments are welcome.
