    What do you wear at a wedding?

    Whether black is okay or not is regional. :] I'd just wear something that was conservative enough that I wasn't going to offend anyone's grandma, while still looking pretty. I wouldn't wear jeans or a white dress, and because I'm a weirdo like that I wouldn't wear black or solid red, either...

    Tugging Makes Them Mean

    I have been asked many times if I worry about tugging creating a monster. Mostly when Elsie's doing this kind of thing; It may not be clear from the photo, but she's tugging so intensely she's humping me with her whole body.

    Teaching/Learning/Lesson Dogs?

    I've thought many times that it's so unfair to Elsie that she has to be my first dog. She has taught me so much about being patient and kind. I'm so grateful to her.

    I thought about this some more while Elsie was being the best dog in the whole world. I don't feel guilty about buying Elsie, and I'm totally comfortable with my choice, thrilled with my dog, friends with the breeder, happy as a clam... That doesn't mean I wouldn't feel proud of rescuing...
