claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
meet sammy checkers (naomi and eliza wanted sammy and micah wanted checkers…kind of like lucky frank when i was little). we’re taking care of this little guy (complete with live music serenades) until he finds an adoptive home.
it has been so fun to watch a mini-sally do all the things she was doing about a year ago.
and watching them together is like me-and-my-shadow…we’re careful to say the dog we are taking care of rather than our new dog…jerry is in his element with training him. it’s kind of like the joy of a second child…we aren’t as freaked out…can recogonize the joy a little more quickly.
but as i type i have a keen eye on those two romping in the living room (dear god, please may i not need to write that sentence again)…waiting for a bathroom need to become evident.
the kids are elated. sally is curious and calm. the cats are less impressed.
