Our new puppy Tula

Tula on adoption day

First and foremost, I’d like to introduce you to Tula:  She’s a rescue puppy from Doggy Dog World Rescue.  She has some cattle dog or possibly Aussie shepherd in her, but we really don’t care what her past was.  We are more excited about her future as our little girl.  Jaco the cat is withholding judgment until he has collected more data.

We are re-learning what it means to have a puppy in the house.  Our last experience was over 20 years ago with little Dexter.  We are both looking at a lot of information (books, on-line) and figuring out what we did right (lots) and what we did wrong (some) with Dexter in his training.  One thing is for certain, we will be enrolling all three of us in classes at St. Huberts soon.

On the training front I managed to hit all my running workout and only missed one of the strength/stretching sessions.  A bit over 17.5 miles for the week makes this my longest run week in many months.  Feels good to be back in the groove.
