Pleased to report a really positive, happy week. The Chief rose to the challenge of returning to school and leapt right into transitioning to High School. I can't begin to tell you how relieved and happy I am at his progress. Obviously the ground is still a little shaky but I am so proud of him.
We've also seen progress with the puppy training. Given our older pooch Benny's health at the moment I was advised to have an overlap of dogs to make it easier for the Chief to deal with the (potential) loss and avoid any feelings of guilt over a 'replacement' dog. Death is a horrible thing to have to think about but it has been becoming all too real over the past couple of months.
Teddy is an adorable ball of fluff. The Chief has shown great patience in training him. It all got a bit too much during the night time though with Teddy pestering him to the point of 'exhausted new parent'. We've switched dog bedrooms now and that seems to be working *touch wood*.
Benny also has a new youthful exuberance. I haven't introduced them properly yet for fear that Benny may squish him. I think I'll keep that for on neutral ground. They have met through the puppy crate in an attempt to get them used to each other. It's quite funny watching the pup trying to charm Benny. So cute!
Yesterday I received news that I've finished paying off one year of my student loan. Hurrah! It makes things easier as the other three years are with a different company.
Lots of positives this week :)
