Instead of waking up this morning to the sweet smiles of Rozie and Xena that only Golden Retrievers can give, I awoke to a major hole in my carpet that Xena had thoroughly enjoying making. Grrrrrr! With one swift move Xena took out the bedroom and hallway carpet by chewing the seam.
Trying to rehabilitate a puppy mill breeder dog requires a large resource of patience and this morning that resource almost was depleted. In Xena's world, there is no such thing as good dog, bad dog, she does not even understand the word "no". I've had Xena almost three months and we have made no progress in the house-breaking department and she continues to want only to be left alone in her hiding place away from Rozie and as far away as she can get from me out of fear that I will take her to that terrible place we call outdoors.
What does this have to do with cards? Absolutely nothing, I'm just venting. So I'll stop and share a card to remind myself that it is all about love and besides, there is always duct tape.
