“Hi Jennifer,

I’m hoping that you’re relaxing and taking the time off you need (and of course, Shabbat Shalom).  Here’s a pupdate message that you can post if you choose.

We all know that Jennifer gives very clear and understandable guidelines for training puppies but retired moms like Glory and Rosie have different rules!

“Don’t feed our puppies from the dining room table.”  Well, that rule goes out the window every Friday night when we have Shabbat dinner and have challah (fyi – the braided egg bread that we serve on the Jewish Sabbath and pretty much all Jewish holidays).  Our girls adore challah and go nuts when they see it so of course they get to share it with us – yes, from the table.

“Don’t make a big deal out of leaving the house or returning” but these girls know they’ll get a treat when either of us walks out of the front door and of course when we come back in.  They expect something even if we just go outside to check the mailbox, though they don’t always get a treat then.  Still, they know to jump on the sofa in anticipation!

Rosie and Glory are #s 4 and 5 of our adopted cavaliers and we think that giving them a happy and comfy home for retirement is almost a “calling”.  They sleep with us (no crates needed), watch TV with us, and generally run the household (being moms they know how to keep us on our toes)!  They are precious and because they’re older (8 yrs and 6 yrs) we know that each day with them is a gift.

Much love,”
