Karla, you are probably right, no one unless they are searching for 'Potty Training Pups' wants to click on a blog and read about it, but... you share about it so sweetly and real... I think it's rather cute. Besides, that story almost gets lost amongst your beautiful Christmas photos. Your home is so warm & inviting. Merry Christmas to you and your love ones, Tami

Janet Ghio

we do love to see photos of those cute babies..


Karla, love all your pics...and I had to laugh about your puppy issues because I've been there, done that. And even though I said never again, like you, I know I will! Big hugs to you and the pups....and Merry Christmas!


You are sharing your life as you know it. From parties and travels and dogs and grand fairies and crafting and more, I am grateful you share so much of your days, both the bright ones and the challenging ones. Thank you, Karla! And Merry Christmas!

Karla, you could write about the dictionary, and in your sweet tone with pictures of your art, your lovely family and your pups, we would all LOVE it! Warm hugs and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Sheila R

Love how you keep it real! Still laughing.... Merry Christmas to your and your family.


Oh Karla! I love how you keep things real! I haven't put my Christmas Tree skirt nor my gifts under the tree because I'm afraid my dogs will mark their spot. So, on Christmas morning, before everyone gets here, I'll put the skirt and presents in place and keep my eyes constantly on the dogs.
Merry Christmas!

When I saw the picture of the beautiful tree, no I did not expect to her about puppy poop. I agree potting training and winter is not a good combination. Love the pictures of the Christmas decorations!


We dog lovers can sympathize entirely, and a good laugh out of it ~
Thanks for sharing the beautiful pix ~~~


I love the pretty pictures, but I always like a good puppy tale. They are absolutely adorable all snuggled up together. (And I think your fence is pretty, despite its real reason for existing.) Merry Christmas, Karla!

Drop deaf Christmas decorations,
I don't mind you talking about dog pee. One of the great thing about reading the blogs of my internet friends is reading about mormal life. It shows that most of us have the same problem/delights/happenings.

Louise Oakes

That should have read drop dead decorations!


Babble away, as long as you keep sharing those beautiful photos!

Karla, part of your charm is that you combine the gorgeous with the "this is life"! It is what makes us love you and able to relate to you all the more. Besides, If you combine a post on the woes of puppy potty training with beautiful photos of pups and Christmas charm, I hardly even notice that I'm reading about such. ; )

Love the overflowing bowl-o-pups and the Christmas tree "fencing"!

Hi Karla,

I am so happy to be getting caught up with you blog. I am currently in the hospital and have had two surgeries due to complications of my ovarian cancer. I have been home three days in the last month. I will hopefully go home, next week.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. The puppies are precious.

HUGS, ~elaine
