Big Bones

I ran across this pic of Puppy Lou (a/k/a Mabel Lou, the Queen Bitch of Everything)  with a huge bone I had waiting for her the day I brought her home from K-9 jail.

And... one I got for Macy... they have different techniques for sure.
 As bones to chew on go, this girl has bit off more than she can chew! Teachers work such LONG hours! Who knew??? Add in that I teach special ed and am expected to work on legal documents pertaining to my students' education that can take 27 - 30 hours each on my own time AND that I'm in a graduate level program to earn my teaching credential... and you will know why I say I'm a terrible pet mom!

I have honestly asked myself if Macy would be better off living with the RottRovers... and while the Pro and Con sheet was mostly yes... I selfishly have decided I need her for my own mental health. I'm in over my head and feel like I'm sinking more every day... and my girl is the best part of my life. I never dreamed I'd be leaving her for so long teaching school! My heart aches for her. And when I'm home...I'm not here... always working on my laptop. Which may explain why I'm not blogging much. I try to give Macy the most I can!

I hope all of you are well.

We know Macy Blue loves you no matter how much time you can spend with her. It's tough being a working pawrent but you know you are doing the best you can. Good luck with your work and in working toward your teaching credential.

Macy needs you as much as you need her, so don't give sending her away a second thought.

That looks like a dinosaur bone!
