The kids wanted to go out and make snow angels. We're at the end of February and there won't be many more opportunities for playing in the snow, so I let the kids put aside homework and take advantage of the weather. Soon after they went outside, I unleashed Pippa, our new little cockapoo.
My son, who has been afraid of dogs for many years, has really bonded with Pippa. You see Pippa's a big ol' scaredy-dog and needs lots of reassurance as she encounters new things. We rescued her from the local animal shelter so we're not sure why she's afraid of cars, doors, brooms, electric toothbrushes, garbage cans, etc. My son can relate to feeling afraid and has taken a special interest in making sure Pippa gets lots of love and attention. Every time I see them together I am so proud of their special partnership.
