straining toward possibility

Mom!  Mom! Let me go!

Hey!  Hey!  Friend!

But you must learn self-control

and prove reliable before

you’ll be unleashed on the world.



First puppy obedience class today.  Someone was the most excited one in the room: way too excited to pretend to be one of the cool kids, and he talked WAY too much.  Apparently he is truly my dog. (cough).
