2021

Good Morning ALL! Well we are down to the final stretch only FOUR sleeps till Christmas EVE. WOW.

Our little visitor arrived late yesterday afternoon. I present Miss Cookie.

We had our first night. She was missing her family for most of the evening and went to the front door every few minutes. I was pleased to see her go outside with Alvin. She did not want a treat last night. She also did not settle down last night. Up on the bed and down. We were up at 2:00 and then I thought maybe she would be more comfortable on the main floor so downstairs we went. Outside. Then to the sofa, she did lay on the end of the sofa by my feet for a bit. Alvin wanted to eat at 4:00 but I said “not yet” but then again about 5:00 and finally at 5:30 we were up and stayed up. He gobbled his food down and she would not touch hers.

This morning while I was in my bathroom putting on my “eyebrows” – I returned to the bedroom to see looming in the semi darkness a parcel on my white rug. OMG, she pooped on the rug only about two feet from the pee pad that I had put down. I have a few throughout the house. But this would not be the first time a pup has pooped on that rug and that is why I have “pet stain remover.” Alvin is laying on the hall rug and Cookie is somewhere downstairs.

I am not surprised by her actions and reactions, this is a semi strange house for her. In a day or two she will be more at home. She is the sweetest little thing. She seems to like me as she has licked my face more than once.

A cup of coffee will be so good this morning and hopefully tonight everyone will sleep through most of the night.

Continuing to live this life with respect, kindness, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I was thinking last night. Can you imagine what our world would be like if we all looked the same, had the same thoughts, opinions and faith? Our world is so amazing because of our differences. As 2021 quickly turns into 2022 – let us celebrate our differences and know they make our world a better, more interesting and fun place to live!
