Clover got caught diving into the downstairs fireplace this afternoon. He might have gotten away with his adventure if he hadn’t turned a full half of his face sooty. I cracked up everytime I looked at him afterward and decided to leave the evidence for when the kids got home. Clover’s not a bad dog, although he still jumps on people and gets into the trash. I’m working on these things with him and hope to get him trained better over the next few months, now that I have some time to spend with him.
I just finished reading Marley & Me; Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog, by John Grogan, a former colleague of my sister’s from the Sun-Sentinel in Florida. If you’re a dog lover and a reader, this one’s a must-read.
