You Talking To Me???
Well, I know it's supposed to be Wordless Wednesday, but since I haven't posted in a few days, I have to write a few thoughts down. Mr. Blues, Jr. is growing in leaps and bounds. He won't leave his big sister's side. He follows her EVERYWHERE. Which is really cute. Josie is being really patient with him, to a point. When I know she's had enough, she gives me this look and I know it's crate time for Blues. I've actually been taking Blues to work with me. I have a portable "tent" crate I use there with him. His training his coming along just fine. He's a normal puppy. But he sits on command and he stays when I open the car door to get him out. Which is really good.
My visit with Josie to Pediatrics last Friday (4/16) went so well!! We have another visit this Saturday. She just loves visiting the children. Their faces are worth every minute of being there. There was one little boy who we visited who had his little brother in the bed with him, so it was Josie and two little boys all at the same time. I wish I could have taken a picture to show all of you. Priceless!
It was also the one month anniversary of John's passing yesterday (4/20). I wanted to visit Gertrud, but when I called her, she didn't pick up the phone. I was in her area, but I didn't want to just stop by. I always call first. I give her space, but am always checking on her. Turns out she was just outside watering plants. But I did get to talk to her on the phone. I will visit her tonight. She's coming along, but it's very hard. She misses John so much. I can tell her life is so empty right now. I am trying my best to help her along. I tell her that John would want her to be happy, but she needs to process the loss in her own time. I do know that. I am there for her and so is Josie and Little B.
I also know that today is the day that the show "Through a Dog's Eyes" shows on PBS. (click on link to check it out). I know lots of our blog friends have been talking about it.
I also wanted to tell you about this wonderful woman Lisa and Sister Mary Beth who is running through all 50 states to raise money for all good causes. She started 2 days ago. It's called "Running Hope through America" (click on link to check it out). Since we are all over the place in the USA and beyond, she might be running near you, so it might be fun to read out it. Pretty amazing stuff!
Right now, I am at work, they have laid off everyone but me and my boss. Josie is laying at my feet. Ahhhh, I have my Pandora music playing and am about to dive into a newsletter that I have to do. Hey, it's all in how you look at it. It's a beautiful day. No worries.
Thanks for all your love and support,
I love all of you so much,
Josie and Mr. Blues, Jr.
