Sometimes I get it all wrong. Never was a dog person until I decided to buy a puppy from under a tree. Later I read that one should never do that. Sometimes others get it all wrong. Athena has added so much to my life, never before have I scooped poop, now a daily task or filled in holes just where I don't want a plant. I know all about kibbles and teething rings. Not that Athena needed teething rings because shoes, expensive dog beds, wooden sculptures brought home carefully from trips to Africa and anything else that happened to be within reach would do. She really wasn't too particular about her chew toys.
