Leonbergers -Large & Loyal ** With Zoe's Musings on Zoe's Word

The first photo is Bridger my puppy’s daddy!  One of these beautiful puppies is ours!
I’m still reading every book on positive dog training that I can lay my hands on and I’ve learned so much! Some of the wonderful books I’ve explored are… “It’s Me or the Dog” by Victoria Stilwell, “Top Tips from Top Trainers” by The Association of Pet Dog Trainers, Cesar Millan’s book called “How to Raise the Perfect Dog” and Sondra our puppies breeder recommends “The Dog Listener” by Jan Fennell. “The Dog Listener” will be a book I start this week!
Zoe the cat knows something’s up! I thought that she wasn’t aware of the puppy toys and treats I purchased for our baby girl who is not yet with us.  Well I ran out of can cat food Saturday morning and dry food alone doesn't cut it with Zoe! I had a Pens of Praise Writers group to attend that morning and I needed to write so I had to beg her off the meowing with a few cat treats.  In my writers room I have the dog toys and treats in a bag on a dresser. Well she jumped up there as I was clicking away at my keys and dug and sniffed around. Then she jumped down and purposefully looked around to see what she could knock off a book shelf!! I redeemed my favor with the putty-cat by buying her some Taste of the Wild –Rocky Mountain Feline formula with Roasted Venison & Smoked Salmon grain-free diet! Also what really got Zoe liking her lips was TikiCat canned cat food!  You would think she caught it herself she is soooo satisfied and lovie!!
Zoe's word for today is If you keep My commandments {if you continue to obey My instructions}, you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father's commandments and live on in His love.   I have told you  these things that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measuer and complete and overflowing. This is My commandment: that you love one another {just} as I have loved you. John 15:10 - 13 Amplified Version.  As you can see salmon inspired Zoe to dive to the deep places in the word of God today! May you truely be aware of and deeply blessed by our God and King today and the whole week through!!

Tea Time Girls Having Some Fun!

Here we are the Tea Toting Tea Time Girls together for some fun!  How wonderful to get together and laugh with those who love you just because you’re you!  Giggles and Prayers abound with this wonderful group of ladies who would rather tip their tea cups in unity rather than be mean and snarly!  I wish every woman everywhere could enjoy such comrade and friendship!

My Scooby Do.....

This is a tribute to my Scooby Do. He was such a faithful dog and loved deep and rich as we shared our days whether with joys or sorrows. What an amazing friend and member of our family! Oh the stories I could tell you about his escapes and escapades!  He enjoyed many.  As I read books on training dogs I have discovered why he didn’t listen at times!  We had a communication breakdown.  It’s kinda creepy yet fulfilling to step inside the mind of the dog when reading these books on behavior and obedience training! Who would have thought!!  I wish I had taken the time to read about the wisdom of dog relationships written by the dog whisperer and many other worthy authors!  I hope you allow curiosity to grab you  if you and your puppy are “not communicating”!  Enjoy!
