About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Linda said...

He is so cute, but he just has that naughty little boy look in his eyes! I know you are going to be challenged raising him to be a good boy! Perfect quote too...

He is too cute! How did the other end (bath) go?

Faye said...

Two Pitties--he got a first taste of the water hose. Although it was laying out in the sun am sure it was a shock. He hollered so loudly the neighbor came out to see if he was being murdered. Now he walks WAY around the hose. But has not stopped digging. :-)

He is adorable even if he is a naughty puppy.

Hi Faye, Be careful that Chet doesn't dig his way under the fence. My son lost a little puppy once when he dug out of the yard -and was never seen again...

Puppies do love to dig!!!! Chet is a cutie---even though he has that 'naughty' look on his face.
Hugs,
Betsy
