Sailor is Love in a Pretty Package!

Sailor is Love in a Pretty Package!

Sailor is a beautiful, energetic, 20 lb. 3 to 4 year old spayed female pup that loves kids and other dogs.  She is potty trained and crate-trained.  She has recently been trained to sit for her food, but that needs to be reinforced as it is a new routine and she is very young.  She is the perfect age for learning new things.  Sailor loves to be around people and is curious about all things.  A secure, fenced in backyard is a wonderful thing for her, she loves to play and run around in it.  She will play well by herself with toys for a good amount of time, but she is a Velcro dog.  She will follow you everywhere.  At night, because of the allergies, we open the door to her crate and tell her to go in, shut the door, and say goodnight.  The crate is next to the bed and she sleeps well all night in it even though our other dog sleeps in our bed.

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.
