When you take on a new partner in any activity, there's a period when the new person is learning the ropes and you wonder if it isn't more trouble than it's worth. And so it is with my new partner. She sleeps a lot on the job which often means I'm typing with just one hand. And after meals she's given to me in my new role as digestion specialist and we do a lot of moving around to get those bubbles percolating through her system. Movement of all kinds - rocking, calisthenics, up and down, back and forth, back patting - seems to do wonders in distracting her and giving the server some time to sleep or do other things. (One thing she can do as well as any adult - hiccup.)
But this is a long term partnership and if the blogging gets a little behind, I hope you'll understand. And the training investment will have big long term benefits.
