Nobody Here But Us Turkeys
Cinder and I took a walk outside at lunchtime and came across this  turkey taking a dust bath in the flower bed in front of the Library of Michigan and History Center building. The turkey was unflappable (though it flapped about in the dirt quite a bit.) Ci...

Puppy Tooth Fairy
Cinder has lost her four front teeth, and I was able to (miraculously) snap pictures of her teeth. Her top two adult front teeth are already growing in, but the photo of her bottom teeth shows two pink spots where the teeth are missing. So, technically, she...

Bowling Ally Experience
We attended the Lansing Lions Club's annual fundraiser at the bowling ally last night. Cinder doesn't even flinch at the boisterous noise of a bowling ally! Cinder does get easily distracted by people moving around her though. She always wants to investigat...
