Like a champ

So we went camping, and Chris joined in for a couple of days. She brought her three dogs, so there were six in all. You would think that would not be fun, but they are actually all pretty well behaved.
But the great thing was....

Drumroll, please....

Zaccheus learned how to drink out of a bowl!
Schatzi showed him how, like a good sister, and now he can do it. Actually, I came home mid-week to perform on TV, and he came home with me. I put him in his box in the living room, and when I came back, he was drinking a few laps from the bowl, tipping his head back to swallow, and licking the water bottle while his head was tipped. He would alternate between the two. I just stood in the doorway watching in amazement.
Might have teared up a bit.
My baby is growing up.

Two exciting things! How exciting!
That's so neat that he has finally learned to drink on his own.
And wow! Television!

I've read your journey with Zacchaeus. You amaze me. Your dedication and effort- what an example! Clearly your daughter has picked up on it and shares your heart. He is a cutie!

You have one amazing puppy! What progress.
I know it's been a LOT of work for you, but that selflessness is being picked up on and passed on to others as well, I'm sure.

And Z is about the cutest puppy ever, eh?
