CHAPTER NINE: SCOUT
My first walking client was a giant, female Malamute named Scout.
It was a warm, sunny day in May 1994, when I first met Scout and her owner, Mary, a busy lawyer. They lived in a small cottage with a lovely fenced yard, near the lake.
Scout was three years old and had plenty of energy. She wasn’t the least bit shy and licked my face in greeting. So far, so good!
Malamutes have strong-willed, dominant personalities, and Scout was no different. According to Mary, she disliked other female dogs, and I should be wary of that. A tad stubborn myself, I was determined to fix it.

And to leave you with something delicious and sweet… a lovely post and recipe from Dolly Aizenman of Kool Kosher Kitchen – Patience to Wait for Blueberry Pie.
The post is not just about a delicious pie but her mother’s time at the prestigious Stolyarsky Specialized Music School of Odessa and the devastation of war that resulted in her mother receiving multiple life-changing injuries resulting in over 80 surgeries.. What an inspiring story.
This recipe is created for my favorite purple person, an amazing, quirky, and funny blogofriend Melinda of Purple Slop in Recovery. I promised her a few months ago to create a purple cake. A while later, I made a purple pie and photographed it (before it was gobbled up!), getting ready to post the recipe. Unfortunately, it took me a few more months to get to it, but fortunately, dear Melinda would not let me dive into a serious guilt trip. She had patience to wait, thus reminding me of an inscription on a photograph my mother had carried with her throughout the war, through horrors and pain.
