Checking In!




Hi everyone!

Just checking in.

I am busy with my classes just getting started.  As many of you know, I have my upper-level students create and maintain blogs, so I have been overseeing the creation of 64 blogs!  Oh boy!  I put them on a central page so all the students can access them easily.

So far so good, but it has been keeping me busy.

Also, I have been having a great time with my new dog Kia!

I got her from the shelter and apparently she had not been walked before since when I put on the leash she had no idea what to do.  Now, however, she is a champion walker.  Yay!

This is the look I get in the morning when I try to visit blogs....







Now she knows what it means when I get these shoes out and she is a very happy girl!



Have I mentioned I am head-over-heels CRAZY about this dog?

She's a keeper! And YEAH for getting a shelter dog! They are the best and she'll have a wonderful forever home.

Oh my gosh, she is soooo cute!! I love her little eyebrows too--they are very expressive. Sammy the Weiner Dog (the dog we dog-sit) has those too and he makes the cutest faces--I think those eyebrows are why.

It sounds like fun, working with the kids as they create their own blogs! And Kia. Love that look! :-)

Alison said...

Ha ha! I knew when I saw she was up on your bed that she had crawled her way straight into your heart. She sounds like a super-smart little gal. How old is she? She looks like a puppy!

Kia is wonderful.

Slamdunk said...

I am glad you two found each other. 64 blogs? Oh man.

Anne Gallagher said...

Oh she is just too cute!

Linda said...

I was afraid you'd have trouble adjusting to a new dog after your wonderful companion of so many years, so I'm thrilled for both you and Kia that the relationship is working so well. And, as a side note...what a lovely blog that is on your screen in that first photo. :)

Adorable! I'm glad you are enjoying one another.

Tabor said...

I can tell by the love in her eyes that she is crazy about you as well.

Green Monkey said...

She's wonderful Betty! We are adopting an adult (sounds so much better than senior) Bernese Mountain dog on Saturday! 64 blogs... oh my!

SueAnn Lommler said...

What a sweet face! Dogs make the best companions ever, even when you have a bad day, they're there for you.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sixty-four blogs? Piece of cake! (Only because I have clones.)
Kia is such a cutie. How could you say no to that face?

Momma Fargo said...

Cutest dog eVAH! What a personality. LOL. We all need those little guys and gals to keep us going and they are such great companions. I think mine think they are human.

YrHmblHst said...

and how could you NOT be crazy about her?
But Kia? Is there a story on the name that I missed?

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

she is so adorable. Blogging with all those students sounds like a lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Domestic Bella said...

Awww she is so adorable! Puppy snuggles and walks are the best.

Daisy said...

I'd be crazy over her too. She looks like a real sweetheart!

Checking in is always better than checking out.

Carol said...

Oh my, so sweet, I love the puppy love. The best companion I can have is my Austin. Sometimes a pest but mostly a friend.

CS Severe said...

This dog is so adorable! It's so great how you gave her a home and I'm sure she's grateful too. That's so cool how you have your students blog. Very unique!

And Happy belated Birthday! :)

Madi and Mom said...

Kia is a beauty such pretty eyes.
You can tell she is eager to please her new Mom. You are two lucky girls for sure.
Hugs madi and Mom

Susan Fields said...

I can see why you're crazy about Kia - what a doll! And I love her name, too. My dog knows which are my walking shoes, and she always gets excited when I sit on the stairs to put them on - dogs are so cute!

Empty Nester said...

I know that look! It's the, "WTH mom? Let's GO!" Also, I think my little Tucker just fell in love. :) What a cutie! Dogs are just the BEST!

Pat Tillett said...

She is such a cutie! You may not be on here much, but at least you are taking care of business...

Pat said...

I have just been catching up on a lot of your past posts. Little Kia is adorable! She is a wonderful addition to your little family!
