Meet Todd…

I had to try the liquid diet and puree diet for one day each, and that wasn’t so bad. I think if I make myself think it’s going to be worse than it actually is…it makes it easier! heh…

I’m getting a new guide dog puppy on the 25th! It’s just a starter puppy for my friend Kay, who’s a leader in Chico. She’s going to take Columbo for a couple months while I start her puppy, then we’ll switch back. I’m excited to have a new baby! Even if it is only for a little while…
