ARGHHH! Sadie Mae does just fine for 2 or 3 days, then she decides to forget everything. Well, not everything...she's definitely connected with the Clicker training. When I say to her: Come! Her little head swivals towards me, her black eyes open wide, she grins (honest!) & runs up the little ramp to the front door, scratching in her eagerness to get inside.
Inside. Where little bits of cooked chicken breast reside in a container in the fridge. Oh, yessss!
And it is crucial that she respond to that command. Of course, sometimes she is having way too much fun chasing around with Remington, the chocolate Lab puppy. Then, when I say: Sadie Mae...Come! She looks at me, grins, & says to herself: Oh, maybe later...& off she goes to do her bullet run around the yard.
I need the Dog Whisperer!
She definitely has more Yorkie DNA than Bichon, although I confess to knowing more about Yorkies than Bichons.
I really need to get some pictures of Remington taking Sadie's lead & treating her as if she were HIS puppy, leading her around the lawn.
Oh, a bit of news about my book, When Men Move to the Basement.
On Saturday, January 27th, 2-5 pm, Ibby Greer is holding a book signing at her beautiful home in Rocky Mount. She has moved her Blue Lady Bookshop back to the original location on the Greer land, called The Grove, and the book signing will involve my book, Ibby's baby boomer memoir, Paper Faces,
and her husband Keister Greer's The Great Moonshine Conspiracy Trial of 1935
and Genesis of a Virginia Frontier: Franklin County, 1740-1785.
Also signing their books will be Peggy Ann Shifflett, who wrote The Red Flannel Rag: Memories of an Appalachian Childhood
and Mama's Family Pie, Family Recipes in Appalachia.
April Miller will sign her Reflections in an Old Mirror,
poignant, often humorous, tales about her life, and My Table at Brightwood,
I'm excited. Now all I have to do is lose 20 pounds before the 27th.
New Year's Resolutions: I resolve to eat more chocolate, and eat more icecream (see above?)
I also resolve to stop telling everyone I'm going back to Waterobics at the Y...until I actually show up there.
See, this way I can actually keep my resolutions! Happy New Year, everybody...
