They had an initial meeting at about 10 pm Friday night. They played like long lost best friends. Oh the romping, the frolicking, the pure joy they seemed to have with each other...
They are sooo over it now! Our poor sweet Teddy! She is just too nice! And in my opinion Kuhla is a bully. She steals Teddy's bone and she won't let Teddy on the porch at times.
I've only seen them play once since Kuhla moved in Sat night.
This is what Teddy thinks of Kuhla....
Tyler has taken on the job to take care of Kuhla this week. He has done an amazing job. He goes out every HOUR we are home to play with them or check on them! Its really cute. He's such an animal lover!
Both Teddy and Kuhla are Golden Retrievers. However, Teddy is not into the Retriever part she just enjoys being Golden....
Kuhla loves to retrieve. It is fun to watch her fly after the ball...I was hoping Teddy would study this and show some interest...Nope. She just sits by me, being Golden, and expects me to pet her while we watch Kuhla do all the retrieving.
Teddy is ready to have her family back to herself and poor Kuhla sits by the door where she last saw her human disappear behind. I know she is missing her family!
Kuhla will go home Monday morning. I'm sure she will be overjoyed to be back with her family.

"When I was very young and the urge to be someplace else was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch...I fear this disease is incurable"
"A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safe guards, policing and coercion are fruitless...we do not take a trip a trip takes us."
"A burning desire to go, to move, to get underway, anyplace, away from any here."
-John Steinbeck taken from his book Travels With Charlie

This farm..the one that grows sunflowers and pumpkins...two of my favorite things is for sale!!! She was trying to sell it to me and making some progress when my husband drug me back to the car. "What??" I said. "I was willing to move to Florida for you and you won't move to Hood River for me??" "I could make a fortune selling pumpkins!"

Anyway it was an interesting conversation which lead to a job offer for me!
Funny, all this focus on Jeff and his job. Which, by the way, he's still looking so please keep praying!
I have been asked to teach at CAA next year!!!!
Unbelievable! It has been 6 years since I left. Well, was asked to leave.....financial reasons you know...I was just tooooo expensive!
Honestly, I'm not sure it has sunk in yet. Here's the interesting part....I will be teaching Josh's Global Studies class...poor kid....
So I teach two sections of GS and help out with sponsoring SA. I work Tue, Thur and Fri. So I can still ski with Ty on Wed with winter sports! It really seems so perfect.
The pay is lousy but the commute is awesome! I'm so excited to be able to teach where my kid is!
I really didn't think this day would come. I'm so thankful for this opportunity!

This tortes loved to be rubbed. Like a puppy he would put his head out to be scratched! I have my days when I just want that kind of attention. Could some one just admire me and rub me behind the ears?? We also relate on the dry skin issue...
Sigh, there are those days I have my nose so far up in the air that I miss what is really important
