Dexter and I have been bonding and hanging out all week-end. Having a puppy puts everything into perspective. They are dependent on you and at the same time make you dependent on them. I already cannot imagine my life without this little guy.

We have to make some changes to the Cochiti Cabin. Found a few areas not “puppy proof”.

a. The peppers on my porch that blew off the ristra – danger!

b. The grass skirt at the base of my giant lighted fake palm tree in the living room -danger!

c. The great outdoors with swirling hawks the size of toddlers that can snatch up a jack rabbit – danger!

d. My open fireplace – danger!

But hey – it’s all good. Dexter’s adjusting well – as you can tell by his latest photo.
