“Great Happiness” is a Yellow Lab

WP_20170219_002Allow me to introduce Alissa.

Among other things, her name means, “Great happiness.”

She is almost 16 weeks of age now and already has a number of commands under her belt.

She is a very sunny little girl with that sweet Labrador demeaner.  Even when she is being a bit of a dickens, she is cute.

I think she’ll be a big girl:  She was 18 pounds at 10 weeks of age and has doubled in size since then.  Her vet says he thinks she’ll be somewhere in the 60-70 pound range.

It is hard for me to imagine that she’ll ever be anything other than a puppy.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
