A SPLENDID Winter Day! Jan. 2, 2021

As you’ve seen – or I’ve mentioned – we have a tarp covering our house to protect us from the wind and protect our roof and everything on it from heavy snow. It also has enabled us to keep the motorhome just as warm while using our heat a LOT less, thereby saving us money …

Amazing Maisie: Intelligent Disobedience? Or Just Intelligence?

I have often wondered how intelligent disobedience is taught. Because I don’t use Maisie away from home yet I haven’t really looked into it much. But today she ignored a command of mine so that she could follow a different, previous command. Here is what went down: During the day my “spot” is at the …

Laid-back Kinda Monday

Today was one of the last 2 warm days of the season, at 75F and sunny with a light breeze, it was perfect. So I put everything else aside and chose to spend the day out on the patio with Maisie and of course Pete. I did some fall cleanup out there, with Maisie’s help …

Hard at Work

Today is a work day for Maisie and me. She hasn’t worn her pack in a long time – probably a year – but if I’m going to take her away from home I want her to carry my nitro tabs, chewable aspirin, inhaler, my wallet and phone, etc. We are just beginning work on …

Autumn Colors – Oct. 21, 2020

These are some photos I took around the yard. It was a lovely sunny day, probably got up to about 60°F, and we still had some good colors despite the windy rain we’d had. I just love the colors against a bright blue sky! (I set this slideshow to move automatically so you don’t have …

The Other Night – Another Maisie Tale

I do believe I still need to post about Maisie’s (known) early days, then when she came to live with me, how I worked with her, etc. – above and beyond what I shared previously but for now I just have another tale to tell :). A couple of evenings ago I had a dilemma, …

Sunday Visitors; Amazing Maisie

It was a chillier day today but the sun was bright so we decided to make a fire in the firepit and enjoy God’s creation anyway! I don’t recall if I’ve shared Maisie’s story, or how God made her perfect for me and got us together, what she was like, etc. but she was a …
