In Finn and Other Unrelated News

Well, you all know that Grandma made a special appearance the other day…well, today is her birthday and to celebrate, I invited some of her friends and family to join us for high tea yesterday.  We had a really nice time! 
This also meant that we had to leave Finn home for a nice chunk of the day, and lately I feel that she has been acting out a little bit when we leave her alone, so we have been practicing a new routine for when we do leave her – a special toy gets left that we pick up the instant we get home.  I had been practicing it for shorter amounts of time, and this was the first time we did for a long amount of time, and everything seemed ok when we got back, so way to go girl!  (I’ll keep you posted on the progress of this trick, because if it does continue to work, I will be so thrilled!)
Today I took her to get groomed.  Not my mother, Finn of course!  I can’t tell if she’s happy to be clean, happy to be back home, or just panting from the car ride, but I have to say that I am SO HAPPY with the place we went to.  Really great service and super nice people.  We’re off to a great start of the weekend!
