We still keep a Christmas jingle-bell collar on Sophie so we have an idea of WHERE she is at all times....the house-breaking thing is going ok...no poo in the house for DAYS...it's just the piddle that seems to have her mystified. She does good one day and then the next has 2 or 3 'accidents' (though in all fairness it's still OUR fault...either she's playing and just doesn't yet see the need to go to the door, or we wait too long to get her out between potty's.
But all in all she's a barrel of fun, chaos, and noisy madness. And she's been a real boon for Sydney (who must have had a small stroke earlier in the year....she doesn't walk so great as the left side isn't under total control). Before Sophie arrived she was quite content to lay back on the bed most of the day, only walking around when something was going on. Now something is ALWAYS going on, and Syd is now out in the mix just due to pure jealousy I think...but no matter...anything that keeps her moving around is a good thing. Had Sophie to the vet this morning (more puppy stuff to get over)....she's up 3 pounds in the last 2 weeks...she's now 4 months old, 26 lbs.
OK...enough puppy talk. Now it's time for College Football! Got to watch a bunch of bowl games earlier in the week...and totally missed the 2 best games thus far: The Sugar bowl and the Rose bowl! I had dreams and hopes that Oregon and OSU would both win, but if I were betting money I wold have had to say it would be Bama and FSU. OMG!!! NO SEC TEAM IN IN THE BCS BOWL GAME!!! It's a dream come TRUE! Not that I was ROOTING for OSU mind you...that would get my Michigan fan club card revoked and I'd be stoned by the Blue faithful. No...not rooting for them, just wanted them to win over Bama. And HOLY SMOKES, they DID! And then Oregon knocked off the defending Natnl Champs Florida State! GO DUCKS!!!! I'm DYING that I didn't get to see both those games...but very happy!
And now...my prediction is Oregon by 12. I'm still in a daze that neither Bama nor FSU made it...HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!! No, Happy isn't the right word....ESTATIC!!!
OK...it's now Jan 2nd, and tomorrow I'll likely be taking down my Christmas lights. I've been busy busy and not getting anything done...only 3 more days and then back to dreaded WORK!! But I won't think about that just now....hope to get a bike ride in....I've only got TWO rides in the last TWO months! Not a good record for me for sure...my fitness is GONE withe the wind (and cold...BOY it's been cold here in the mornings....hovering around freezing, and I am NOT going out in that).
Time to fly...just wanted to say Happy New Year to the Asylum!
