"Make-It Monday" Pocketful of Sunshine

Hey there everyone! Monday sure came quickly...hope the weekend comes again just as quickly! I took my yellow lab, Millie in to be spayed this morning...I'm hoping it will calm her down a bit so I can start taking her for walks! I'm a horrible pet owner! She is three years old, loves to play catch/fetch, but she takes me for walks instead of the other way around.  I realized while my two oldest sons were home with their pups over the holiday that I did EVERYTHING wrong.  They had their pups with them all the time...except when Kate and I were dog sitting.  I get it now...you have to spend lots of time with them...teaching them...encouraging them!  That's how they learn to behave!!  I didn't make the time to teach her and I feel TERRIBLE!  I have a trainer coming to the house next week...he ASSURES me that it isn't to late...she's three...so I'm hopeful! I want to be a better dog mom!!! 

Well...I'm leaving to pick her up, but before I leave I want to share this weeks "Make-It Monday" with you! It's a FUN one!
