Having a new puppy in the house in no cake walk. It has been trying. Especially with an older dog already in the house who expects all the love and attention.
But Bella is great! And so smart.
Today (and over the past few days) I taught her to sit! She learned it so quickly that I feel she must have been in a decent home to begin with.
Her and Mia are still having some hiccups but I hope to train them both out of it quickly.
Any pointers for helping an old dog transition into having a puppy around that wants to play all the time are greatly appreciated!

This is such a great experience and another one that I actually crossed off last year but never input, so on another day when I am super busy with work I am crossing this off the list.
Anyone that lives in Denver, I highly recommend this. I went with a wedding party. It was a BLAST!
Here are some great pictures from the train! I would love to go again this winter or fall to see a different scene.
This was actually a spur of the moment happening but a great night. I usually close the bar on Friday nights but I was just feeling absolutely drained tonight.
I asked the other bartender if they would close for me and when they agreed I told myself I would go right home and rest for the night.
I should have known enough that I would not do that.
A few friends showed up that I had not really seen in a while just as I was about to leave. They wanted to check out a show in the neighborhood. So we went down to check it out but sadly, it was sold out.
We had all heard of this little jazz club around the corner, Nocturne, and decided to check it out.
It was a really great time. A very chill setting, we had some great appetizers and a few great drinks. A place I would definitely visit again but a time that can not be duplicated!
I wish I could say this was a great experience. It definitely started out as a fun night. And was not even the thing I planned on marking off my list today but a group of friends I used to work with got together for dinner tonight. Only I got sick… I do not know if it is the flu or what but not enjoyable and I probably was not the best company. It was good to see the friends though. Might have to do this one again when I feel better!
I know this seems a little silly. But I have actual good reason for this simple task.
There have actually been studies and articles published (like this one Playing Mario Bros) that say playing video games, cognitive games or just keeping your mind active more often then say, mindlessly watching tv can help prevent dementia.
Because I have a history of dementia in my family I think early in life it is important to do anything I can to help prevent or at least put off longer getting the disease.
So I downloaded this “Trivia Crack” game and will start playing. Besides the good side affects it might have on my brain, maybe I’ll actually learn something every once in a while.
This is one of those things that is simple but can end up meaning a lot or at least having some sort of simple effect.
I found a website called On This Day.
I think I thing I lived the most was Famous People Born on August 26th. I have the same birthday as Mother Teresa! What an honor.
Then there is specific events that happened on the day. How cool is it that I was on born on Women’s Equality Day!
So cool! I encourage everyone to check out the site. Learn a little about your day of birth. Please share some interesting points you find.
So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since.
Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!
Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it.
The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.
The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.
