eat and eat and eat

Listen, you just HAVE to come to the party, I’m making too much food for you to not be there. Dolmades, stuffed croissants, crostini, veggie sushi…good lord, how will I cook this all?
And how will I fit it all in here?
Today I spent a good half hour talking to an animal behaviorist about Maddie. Got some very good advice. With that advice I spent 45 minutes walking in and out of my house pretending to leave. Except the problem is that the dogs kind of knew I wasn’t really leaving and just hiding at the side of the house listening for barking. I got an anti-bark monitor. The pheromone is helping her with the chewing, whining, pooping and peeing, but it does not help with the barking. We’ll get there, it’s going to take a lot of work, but we’ll get there.
She’s worth it, and besides, at this point I can not think of anything crueler or more horrible than making her start over again.
Besides, I don’t think there is anyone in the world who would treat her like the princess that she is.
Thank you for your emails…yes…photos soon.
