So it has been a very long time.Where to start.
In order of importance. Izzy can now go up and down the stairs.
It took 7 weeks of patient coaching. Scott is so marvelous. Then one morning he had carried her down for her morning constitutional, came up and made a coffee, sat down at the 'puter and then there she was. She was so excited she came running into my room and jumped on the bed! Izzy never jumps on the furnature! Sheila was on the bed and it was a bit wild. Too funny. Importantly, this was the very day that we had to tell GAP if we would adopt her. She wins! This is her forever home. Scott then started coaching her down the stairs rather than carrying her, and she caught on pretty quickly.

|Izzy likes a walk too, and now we have finally gotten her green collar so no more muzzle. Yay!|
|The girls get along OK. They are not cuddly with each other, but they play and seem happy to not be only dogs.|
|This is the measure of greyhound happiness|
|Izzy seems happy too|
|meanwhile winter is citrus season. We have a new record folks, I have lost track of how many lemons. LOTS|
|Scott is now the master of lemon and lime cordial. He has made gallons.|
|A friend gave me some alcohol to make limoncello. Day 1 of 90 days.|
|awww, gratuitous cuteness.|
