Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right. Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Although I was around hundreds of dogs while in Alaska, I missed my own dogs terribly. I phoned home often and several times Hubby would put the phone to their ears so I could say "Hello." This was more for me than the dogs, as I'm sure they had no idea why my voice was coming from that small device. One of the great things about dogs is that they are happy to see you no matter how long you're gone (5 minutes or 5 months). Even though they could smell "stranger dogs" on my clothes, they were still thrilled for me to be back home with them. They didn't even ask if I brought them a souvenir. That's true, unconditional love.
I taught primary school for 27 years, and loved every minute of it. I am now enjoying retirement on 30+ acres in the north Georgia mountains with my husband and Labrador Retrievers.
When we aren't hanging out in the woods, we enjoy traveling in our RV w/ the dogs. One of our favorite destinations is the Pacific Northwest, especially the Oregon and Washington coasts.
My parents are deceased, I am an only child and have no children; therefore, my husband and dogs are my family.
My blog and blogging friends have taken the place of my classroom and students.
You could say, I've gone from SCHOOL DAYS to DOG DAZE.
