Some things change, some stay the same

Things are changing.
No longer does LR have to eat every single thing that she comes across, from pebbles to slugs to dead bees 😦  A small piece of glass was even consumed one day. Thankfully we were outside the Village Vet and dashed inside for a quick check up.

On the other hand, I see more of me in her everyday. Is this because we spend 90% of the day together? Possibly, but it still makes me feel warm and fuzzy. She’s a speed walker; she cannot just amble along, impossible! She’s hyper-focussed on the task at hand; not even a pork sausage can tempt her away from her pavement vacuuming sessions. And she always wants to know the plan for the day. Haha, well no, I actually think that’s just me.


But she’s definitely a people-watcher too. We love to sit on the pavement and watch the world go by over a good coffee (only for me of course, although I have heard that puppiccinos are a thing). Carluccios always provides a great vantage point on a busy road.


What I’m trying to remember is that her puppy days are flying past. I need to savour theses times, even the challenges, because she’ll be a big girl before we know it. ‘Living in the moment’ is such old hat. But if I look back, I was living in Johannesburg this time last January and I now realise how much I took for granted. I’m sure it will be the same this time next year.

There are some things, however, that have stayed the same. LR still loves to conquer a mountain of washing! Luckily there’s never a shortage of laundry in this house. Pics below, then and now. Hahaha.
