Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Life With Lucy and Cyrus

We're so happy it's getting closer to Spring!!  Being cooped up inside is no fun for energetic doggies. It's a good thing they are so cute!  One day during bad weather Cyrus ended up in the boys' bathroom instead of ours because I didn't want to leave Lucy in M's room eating magazines... It was M's job to make sure everything was okay for him.  When I came home for lunch it was apparent that M. had missed a few things - there was a box of kleenexes in shreds all over the floor.  Cyrus did this in total darkness because M. forgot to leave the light on! Like I said, it's a good thing they're so cute!

The easiest way to get all the mud off them is carry them to the shower.  Well, that works great if Hubby is at home.  M. and I had to carry Cyrus in for a shower the other day - think lots of mud all over both bathrooms.  Poor Lucy - Hubby is the only one who can carry her so she got hosed off with her leash wrapped around the mailbox.  She was a good sport even though she was shivering!  I turned the fireplace on for them and they don't seem to have held grudges!

They both started obedience school.  They can "leave it" (even if leave it is a treat), sit, and lay down (although not always willingly).  I knew Cyrus would learn quickly, but I must say - Lucy is surprising me.  She is finally even learning to take treats gently.

We're still enjoying life with Lucy and Cyrus!

Lucy and Cyrus enjoy snuggling and napping with Daddy on a snowy afternoon.
