Harleigh Who?

There is one beating heart at Chateau Gahan who has loved the transition to empty nest. With Harleigh no longer here to take Gideon out in the afternoon, we now have a dog walker. Gideon is in heaven. Jennifer goes to my church and has a dog walking business. She squeezed me into her rotation and now Giddy has an hour a day in the afternoon for walking and play time. But the best part is that Miss Jennifer often brings over other dogs she walks for play dates. Gideon especially loves Sam the Portuguese Water Dog and Bullet the 12-pound Pug mix rescue pup.

Yesterday Jennifer was babysitting Bullet and asked if she could bring her over to show me how much they adore each other. My boy, gotta admit, is a gentle giant. Their play was sweet and tiring in the afternoon heat. They both plopped down, pooped, after running, and Gideon proceeded to put his paw on top of hers. OK, so not intentional, but it had a Lady and the Tramp feel to it.

Every day Jennifer leaves me a cute note about what they did. Being a mom to a child is no different than being mom to your dog . . . it warms your heart to hear good things about your "child."

Now how precious is that, notes from Miss Jennifer!
Look out, Jennifer is going to be going places with her over the top determination and ambition.

What a lovely and sweet blog. My daughter goes off to college next year....our dogs will be doing the exact same thing....sitting in the window of her bedroom looking out for when she will come home. I love your Eiffel Tower photo stack...quite creative.

That is too cute! I'm sure all the exercise and play time is a good thing for him. :)

Lucky Gideon! He gets a report card and obviously he's a very good student.

Hugs, Gretchen
