"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

Most Likely to Succeed at Making You Smile

Ripley graduated from Puppy Toddler class tonight. Her mama is so proud. She has 'sit,' 'down,' and 'come' mastered, though she also appreciates the value of her free will and sometimes chooses not to respond. She was by far the best looking dog in the class too, which we all know counts for a lot in this world.

How is the 'house training' coming?

You are right, she is quite enough to elicit a good smile!

Cute! She is starting to be dog-shaped and not puppy-shaped!

She's actually doing pretty well with house training...though she doesn't have unsupervised run of the house privileges yet. She's kind of arbitrary about the documents she chooses to shred.
