first day of school!

Well, not really. Or at least not for Bean. But I did find a way to walk Bean without her dragging me from tree to tree all the way down the street. I went to a very nice pet shop in the area called Phydeax (pronounced "Fido"), where a very nice lady helped me find a solution. It's called a Sporn Halter and it works like a charm.

There are two other perks:
1) it doesn't look at all like a muzzle, which some people seemed to think her old Gentle Leader was (people already assume she is aggressive, they don't need another reason to think so!)
2) The straps make it look like she is wearing a backpack if you see her from the front, don't you think?

Can I you walk me to the bus stop now mom?
I don't want to be late for the first day of school!

Now that I can walk her, she is much happier and more calm. (By the way, I'm feeling much better too. Thanks for all the support!)

sad to say

That Bryan and I are no longer together. He left a couple of months ago, and that's all I want to say about that.

My recent troubles are no reason to deprive the world of the happiness that is The Bean. And so, a photo of my little girl. She's been missing Bryan, and spends a good amount of time hanging out by the front door...just in case he comes back. Of course, I may just be projecting here, and she could be laying there because it's where the sun was at that moment... Either way, we're a couple of sad girls right now. But we'll be just fine on our own, right Bean?

Sure mom, but you're going to have to learn to walk me!
