growth

(sorry about the butt shot...I don't know how you get so many good shots...)

There's been a lot of growing going on in my life this past week. For one thing, Waldo has gained probably 4 pounds and at least a couple of inches since I picked him up 10 days ago. It's incredible, and likely pretty painful, that puppies grow at such a rapid rate. I'm pretty sure every time he wakes up from a nap he looks just a tad bit larger. This is something I'm happy about though. Even though puppies are irresistibly cute, I'm much more of an older dog kind of person. I can't wait to see what he is going to look like, I can't wait to go on hikes and runs with him, and most of all...I can't wait for him to grow out of this insane biting and chewing phase. In fact, just a few moments ago I was on the phone with you mid-mental breakdown. I'm still very much in the adjustment stage with this whole thing, and at times it completely overwhelms me. Even though things are tough right now, I know I am doing as much growing and learning as Waldo.

Tonight I am packing all of my warmest things in preparation for the Minnesota trip. As strange as it sounds, I am really looking forward to my weekend on a frozen lake right now.
