Unlike a bicycle built for two, this chair was made for one. Scout doesn’t seem to care.

August 25th. I love it.

Crazy love.

First up this week, teaching Lupita things. I love it. While at Taco Bell the other night, we expanded on something she already knows how to do – “blow it up”. Basically, if you tried to fist bump her, she would hit your hand it the palm of her hand and make an expolding noise. On Thursday, I successfully got her to fist bump, but now she won’t explode it. One thing at a time, I guess.

I love it.

Next up, doing things with my Louisiana family. I love it. Since this is my last full weekend off for a month, I’m glad I got to spend time with Diana and Jose and Craig and Tammy. Yesterday we tried (unsuccessfully) to introduce Scout to Rey. It did not go as I’d hoped but we’ve got a plan for the next meeting that requires a fenced in area and Scout with a muzzle on. I really hope they learn to like each other. Today, I went to the meeting with Craig and Tammy and then we got lunch. I’m glad that I got to see everybody before my life becomes property of Tulane Athletics again.

I love it.

Finally, adopting Scout officially. I love it! On Thursday, Scout officially became part of my family. She is such a good dog. She wakes me up when I’m having nightmares, brings me her toys so I play with her when I’m feeling anxious, and she is an excellent co-pilot when we’re in the car (I try to take her places when I know it won’t be a long time). In fact, she loves the car so much, I literally have to drag her out of it when we get home. Welcome to the family, Scout!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

Scout Eleanor Deas.

I’d like to introduce the newest member of my clan, Scout. I rescued her from an animal shelter in Jefferson Parish. I have no idea why this dog has not been taken home already. She is so sweet and loving. She follows me around the house, is crate and house trained, and wants nothing more than to sit on your lap (even though she is too big). She’s also incredibly smart – she’s taking to training really well.

Don’t worry, folks. Auggie is still with me. He’s a stubborn little guy who hides in the grass so no one can find him, but he’s still going strong!

August 18th. I love it.

What a week.

First thing I love this week: cooler weather. I love it. Everyone thought we were going to get hit by a tropical storm this week, but it turns out all that really happened is we got hit by a cold front. The weather has been so good! I’ve had my screen door open the past few days and it has been glorious.

I love it.

Next up, “Canary”. I love it. My teacher from high school just had the book she wrote released so of course I had to read it! It was a great book! It brings up a lot of issues that kids face these days and I was cheering on the main character the entire time! It was a really quick read (or maybe I was just to into it).Now I’ve moved on to finally finishing “A Series of Unfortunate Events” – 3 more to go!

I love it.

Finally, having Scout in the house. I love it. Scout is a dog that I have been watching this week. I “borrowed” her from the Jefferson animal shelter to see if she likes me (and from what I can tell, she loves me). So far she’s crate and house trained, can sit, and we’re working on her leash walking. Like when I was watching Rey, I feel much more comfortable in my house and I’ve been doing things I wouldn’t do – like leaving my house more than once a day. This week, she’ll probably become officially a member of my family; Auggie is gonna be so excited! Haha.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.
