I just discovered I have several "draft" posts that never were published. Oops! Must have had something to say but no time to say it.
I'll post them now, beginning with an introduction to Aayla, our Australian Shepherd. We got her as a puppy (more than) one year ago. She is smart and pretty, but her nickname is "destructo-dog". She is a voracious chewer who has destroyed several pair of shoes, at least 2 sets of earbuds, one remote control and who knows what else! Nevertheless, we love her.
