I am a 40 plus year-old house frau with two boys. We just adopted a new puppy named Opie. This adoption has had its ups and downs. To keep from going crazy and to save my face book friends from having to read post after post about our new family travail with the dog I decided to blog about it. Hopefully, this will help others in the same boat. They can learn from our experience and laugh and sympathize with our ups and downs with our new pup. I have no doubt that Opie will have provide lots of interesting material to share with readers. I hope you all enjoy it. I know I’m having fun writing it. Hopefully, I’ll get better at this maiden effort.
