New Year's Day Blog…Ain't Gonna Happen

As I embarked on the annual New Year’s Day hike with Tom and Margot, my mind was teeming with ideas for the blog today.  I planned a message of hope, optimism and encouragement for my millions of followers to enjoy as they nursed their hangovers and children.

Unfortunately, I received a text from Archie the Psychotic Chihuahua/WTF Mix’s trainer.  We had delivered Archie to a training bootcamp in Turner, OR in hopes he could be transformed into a dog who could take basic commands and be house trained.

Archie was supposed to be there for a week.  Today, day 3, he is being sent home.  Apparently he is untrainable.  So Tom and I are making the drive back to Turner to pick him up, and frankly I’m feeling a bit discouraged at the news and not able to write the cheerful bullshit I was planning to write.

Please tune in tomorrow for advice, cheerfulness, and Chihuahua recipes.  Happy New Year, everyone!

      Very independent and not responsive to training. I think it was way too soon to send him away. We will keep trying at home! He’s so happy to be back with us!
