Yesterday, Jilly Bean gave a little bark as I fed Kira her fish and oatmeal breakfast. She's always complained that Kira gets to eat twice a day, and this is the first I've seen of her personality since the surgery.
Jilly's eating *3* times per day, as per Dr. Whats-her-name, but she still complained about Kira's brekky. Then she slept, trying to curl up instead of laying flat on her side, which of course is impossible with that huge cast on her leg. Then she looked at me like it was my fault that she couldn't curl. The important part here is that she looked at me, another first since the surgery.

Yay! This is good news. May her recovery from here be swift and remarkable!

Creative lives are made up of minutes and minute amounts of work do add up.

Thanks. It's amazing how my perspective and priorities have changed through this. I"ve been intent on tightening Winston's turns, getting Kira to keep her bars up, Jenna learning to control herself. Now I just wish that Jilly were a little 'over the top' ala Jenna, knocking bars, and turning like a tank. And I don't even run her in agility.

I'm certainly thrilled! At the moment, I'm contemplating skipping OB class with a client's dog, and taking her to the river. It would be a carrying trip, obviously, but I think the stimulation would be good for her.

It is difficult to commit to living where we are, how we are. It is difficult and it is necessary.

And that little bark of gastronomic envy shall echo through the hills and valleys, announcing the triumphant return of Jilly the Giant Bean.

Well said, little dog, well said.

We did. I didn't skip class, though. When I got home I let the dogs out, and took Jilly for a little jaunt. She spotted a woodpecker, showing interest, and watched a couple of deer run from us with the tiniest of growls. When we were almost home again, she gave me a little kiss on the chin. I think we'll be doing a lot more of this the next few weeks.

and little Jilly Bean. Still waiting for the 'Silly' to return.

When she's fully well, and released to 'full duty', I'll put a ribbon in her hair and dig out her pearl necklace {yes, she really does have one! Freshwater, of course, I'm not crazy. Yet.} for an appearance at class. She can thank you personally.
