Making Room

After I move furniture to make way for what's coming
I sit eyes closed, neck long
trying to imagine space full of cardboard boxes
and a dog with a crate
three times bigger
to remind me of how we grow.
She will need peanut butter and baby gates,
gentle nudges and worn out legs
I will run with her away from these oak trees
and we will be pioneers together;
she will push her nose into this life we have built
and we'll make room.

Meet Zoey, the new member of our family as of 2/28/12


  1. Congratulations, Mollie! She is precious! Can't wait to learn more about her as she grows!

  2. Thanks Abby! We are really overwhelmed with how unprepared we are... and that's kind of embarrassing to admit to a dog lover like you! I'll definitely be reading your blog, we have a lot to learn about this sweet little pup!

  3. So sweet! Congratulations!

  4. Thanks Tiffany! She's HARD WORK but we love her already!
