Tell The Dog No Crabs

Today my partner in crime and I have our first orientation class with a puppy trainer. I think this is going to give me a bit of relief from a lot of the concerns I have about properly raising a small dog. I have never had a small dog before, so this has been a bit of an adjustment for me. The main reason we even got a small dog was my youngest basset’s fear of dogs. I know what you are thinking…”But you have dogs?” Yes, we had a wonderful basset mix named Ellie Mae, and we have a mystery mutt named Jethro. Both pups were well into adulthood when children came into the picture and knew how to act properly around people, so they wee never scary. My oldest boy is just fine with dogs, but my youngest has had a rough time, since all my friends have large dogs. He has been known to sit in the car crying out of fear. Hubby and I thought if we started with a very small dog he might warm up to other dogs. HOLY BROWNIE BITES!!! We actually did something right as parents. I have never seen my youngest love a dog so much. He even held her and protected her from a larger dog who was trying to sniff her. He didn’t run, or cry. He stood his ground, held Junebug tight, and told the other dog ..NO!  I couldn’t be prouder.

Keeper of the Scale (contemporary women’s fiction): The Diet Buddies
by Debbie Cohen, Elke Barter
3.8 Stars (19 Reviews)
Genre: Contemporary Fiction | Women’s Fiction

FREE for a limited time

Because life can’t be measured according to a number on a scale…

“NO meeting each other outside of ShopSmart. No exceptions!” vow three women who, though decades apart, share the same, ageless goal of dieting.

But sticking to their diets proves harder than expected, as well as their vow to not become involved in each others lives outside of their weekly weigh-ins at the superstore.

Join thirty-something Janine and her diet buddies, middle-aged Margarite and college student Rebecca, as they laugh, cry, and, in the end, learn more about each other and themselves than how to shed some pounds…

DIET BUDDIES. FRIENDS. WOMEN.

Janine, Margarite and Rebecca are three dynamic women with seemingly little in common except the desire to lose weight. Armed with a hot pink scale, they form a unique diet support group, holding weekly “weigh-ins” in a rather unusual location — the snack area of their local big chain superstore. The goal was to save time, by combining meetings with shopping, but talk quickly moves beyond dieting. Slowly, the women connect on a much deeper level, becoming less obsessed with what they’ve got to lose, and focusing instead on how much they have to gain… from life, and one another:

JANINE is the mother hen and driving force behind the “Diet Buddies Dropouts” break-away support group. The 35-year-old stay-at-home mom left an exciting career in the fast paced world of public relations to look after her kids. Channeling the same drive and energy she used to put into her work towards her new, domestic life, she runs an organized, immaculate home, becomes a soccer mom, head of the PTA, and whiz at arranging playdates. But living off her kids’ leftovers has left her forty pounds heavier than her normal weight. She tells herself if she could just get her weight back under control, everything would be perfect. Yet, even as the pounds drop, she can’t help feeling that there’s still something missing… something more than extra pounds.

MARGARITE is an attractive divorced middle-aged single mom of two teenagers. She’s become something of a celebrity with her best-selling cookbook series. Though slender and fit, she thinks, like so many women, that being even thinner will make her appear younger. Fast approaching the “big 5-0,” she believes losing weight is the perfect way to show off to her ex-husband how great she is doing on her own. It’s been five years since they split up, but she can’t seem to say no to jumping through hoops for him whenever he comes to town. Meanwhile, he has had no trouble relocating and dating other women. She knows she needs to move on too, but struggles to let go of the past and begin building a new life of her own.

REBECCA is a young college student and talented, budding artist who dreams of graduating, backpacking throughout Europe, and making it as a painter. Her older fiancé, however, has other plans — like marriage and starting a life together. But all Rebecca can think about is her art and how to afford a dream summer getaway. She believes modeling may be her ticket, but is told her size six figure won’t cut it in today’s competitive market. While dieting she starts to ponder more than how to fit into the new “perfect size two.” She begins to reflect over painful areas of her life and question her future.
