Do do dooot dooot doo

–We had chili for dinner and I had the brilliant idea of putting the left over brisket in it and… wow!  Yum.

–Then the Butcher dug me a hole and I filled it with the lilac and watered it and am hoping that it does well.  That would be awesome to have a lilac in the yard.

–Then I played with the dog and wandered around the yard thinking about what I’m going to do this weekend.

–And the dog looked up at me and smiled and I just felt like the luckiest person in the world.

  1. Have you let her off the leash yet? You should start practicing the “come back” or “return” techniques they teach on Dog Whisperer and It’s Me or the Dog (as if I’m such an expert) and see if she’ll learn them. Then you could conceivably let her off the leash.

  2. We have been working on some off-leash stuff, but I’m still not convinced that she’s coming because she’s being called or coming because she thinks you might be doing something more interesting than what she’s doing. In a situation where I really need to recall her, presumably whatever she’s doing will be very interesting, so I’m still nervous. I guess it’s safe to say that we’re working on it.

  3. Just a note to keep an eye on the lilac…some of them love to spread! So if you see young shoots popping up, dig them up (unless you want a grove). Also, be patient. They can take several years to flower. Mine never did, so I finally gave up and just make a point of walking past my neighbor’s yard for the few weeks that her lilac is in bloom.
