  • After years of cats John and I now have a puppy. One with a silly name who has decided today at the ripe old age of four months and a week to embrace the bad attitude of a surly teenager. Today she has refused to eat her food, spent her entire afternoon walk straining against her leash trying to lead me back home, would not deign to pee at her preferred patch of grass, and has decided to forget the meaning of sit, lie down and no.

    The only thing she does want to do is play with her favorite toy.

    Well, that and be cute.
