So the rescue totally hasn't gotten back to me and Bdog has been being really good. Even though he drives me crazy sometimes, at this point I am preparing to keep him here.

Today Henry was right next to Bdog as Bdog was eating (H finds the fact that Bdog eats VERY interesting) and Bdog didn't care or even bat an eye.

I had a playgroup this morning with H, an 18 month old, a 3.5 year old and a 4.5 year old. Bdog was excellent.

I think for now I'm going to bring in a trainer to see if we can get a way to teach Bdog to be able to be in a room by himself when there are people home. If I can remove him when he bugs me too much and he'll behave, then I think I can cope.

And I think he can cope, too.

I hope keeping Bdog around isn't a mistake, but I feel like the lack of response from the rescue is a sign that I was having a bad week and most of this was insane cabin fever.

Nothing is happening on the CC and O. front. I haven't heard from the adoption agency yet for info about counseling. I guess I'm going to have to call again soon.

Today Henry is 18 months old. Happy half birthday, beautiful boy!

... And here I was, about to email you with the name of my former coworker who told me to pass on her number if you need it.

I think there's an adjustment period for everyone, and if you can work with a trainer, then great. And if not? That's okay too.

Let me know if you want her number, though. I'm more than happy to share.

With the help of a trainer, hopefully you can find a solution that will work for you. Just keep in mind that training a dog is a lot of work, but it does pay off in the long run.

Gorgeous boy!

I hope that a trainer can help with things. I am sure some of the frustration is the incredible amount of snow that has been dumped on you this year.

I wonder if the situation with CC and O would be more considered a surrogacy than an adoption. Maybe you could get some answers about it from a surrogacy advisor?
