Well, August was certainly a busy month. I didn’t get to all of the comic books that I meant to write about. I’m still going to read them, and put reviews up, but I really dropped the ball. In fact, over the entire summer, I feel like I’ve dropped the ball with the consistent posting. So timing things with everyone going back to school, I’m getting back to consistency.
This past Labour Day weekend, we made a last minute decision to adopt a new puppy. You’ll remember back in April we lost our dog Hank; it was hard going through these last few months without little feet following behind us, and we grew used to a quieter house (sort of).
Enter Bailey: a 1-year-old puppy who has loads of energy. All we knew about her was that she was a beagle mix, and her vet records were kept up to date. We’re not sure what she’s mixed with, but based on observation we think she’s part boxer.
We’re both learning – for Vanessa and I, we’ve learned that she still needs a lot of training and learning about her personality. Bailey is learning the same about our particular life rhythms.
One thing is for certain – she’s not going anywhere. She’s super cute, and despite needing some additional training, we know that we’re going to get along fine. I know that I certainly can’t complain, especially when I’m going to hit my FitBit step goal with no problems two days in a row.
I can proudly say that she’s only destroyed objects of minimal importance so far – and we take responsibility for leaving her on her own for too long. Other than that, she isn’t doing too bad.
I look forward to writing more about her, but for now, enjoy another picture of her sleeping.
