I'm Alive, No Worries

I haven't blogged in, oh, just about forever.  Truth is, I've been really sick.  I just can't shake it.  So, I've been spending the majority of my time on the couch.  Thankfully, it's been pretty nice here weatherwise, so Maya has spent a lot of time outdoors.

Speaking of Maya, I took her to her first training class yesterday.  She did amazingly well.  When Drew went to sign her up for classes, he was going to sign her up for the puppy class.  When the people there found out her breed and that she knew a few commands, they put her in the Beginner 1 class.  When I showed up last night, the trainer gave me the side eye for having her in that class since she is two months younger than what she should be for the class.  She was one of the better dogs in the class, so that made me a very proud mama.

There was one dog in class named Mojo, which made me giggle.  And then his owner told us the story behind his name.  He's named for Missouri Joplin because he was a rescue dog from the tornado.  Apparently he wandered the streets for a couple of weeks before being rescued.  He was very malnourished and this guy has cared her back to health.  Cue tears.
