An update

For everyone who's been wondering how things have been going since adding a DOG to the mix... well, the jury is still out as to whether or not this sweet but obsessive creature will really become a member of the family. I wish that I could say that I'll keep her no matter what, but, being a cat lover and a realist, I have to admit that there is a lot of room for doubt here. Zoey is a pretty well behaved dog and would probably be perfect for most any other home. There's just one itty bitty problem... we have five cats, and she is obsessive about... you guessed it... cats! She's past the stage of being frightened by the hissing and no longer runs from their attacks. Now she thinks its a great game to bark and nip at them. Not the reaction we were hoping for! I'm about at my wits end trying to keep some semblence of peace here! (It's a lot like being a referee for a few 3 and 4 year olds! I know a lot of the moms out there can relate!)
Needless to say, I've not had much quiet time to do much thinking so this is as good a post as I could come up with for now!

Patty...I have been wondering where you've been hiding lately. Sorry to hear your dog is adding chaos to your lovely home. Dogs will be dogs. I hope she settles down soon for you. They are wonderful companions! :D

After I left today, I realized that I didn't get to see the newest member of your household. I really wanted to see Zoey. Too bad! Good luck to you and the cats.

I'm still offering the Birds. You know that one quiet time in the morning when all are still sleeping? The Birds will liven that up for you.
---PS---Missed you this week.
