And now that I’ve unloaded some post adoption angst…..let’s get back to talking about my wonderful dog. She’s had some issues of her own lately. DH was all hellbent on trying to convince me that her paw chewing behaviour was due to all the attention on CB (chocolate button) but I kept telling him it was more likely her food. She gets more walks than any other dog I know. During the Christmas holidays, she was doing at least 5 k a day around the park. A trip to the vet confirmed what my instincts were telling me all along…. her eye discharge, ear gunk, itchiness… was due to food allergies. $83 later, DH and I had a new schedule for giving pills, eye drops and ear drops. Had I not been wearing my halo I would have told DH I told you so at the top of my lungs. But I was, darn it.
So back to the food that was working for her even though she crapped a lot. Oh, she is a delicate flower, isn’t she? She’s doing well, walking beside the stroller while leashed around my waist. At 68 lbs now, my back may give out if she finds a squirrel more interesting than me.
More Show and Tell moment with Mel at Stirrup Queens here.
It has been raining like the dickens here lately. so go to show and Tell. Yesterday afternoon it was so cold and so rainy but I suited up and took Miss Juno to the park where we encountered another man and his dog (cause who else but dog owners would be out in that dark and dreary misery). They played for a bit, but even they called it a night and my dog had no interest in going home. So we kept walking and 45 minutes later, hands freezing, I dragged her all the way home. If there was a person, stroller or other dog she could find to stop and stare at, she did. My punishment for only a 20 min. walk in the morning. I don’t know what the hell I’m going to do once I get a baby, but we’ll see.
I’m way behind today on posting – was on the phone – then I had to take Juno out for her morning outing. We ran into a nice owner and her dog, Emma (don’t ask me what the woman’s name is, I forget), and they romped and played in the mud. Unfortunately, I didn’t have camera in tow to show you how absolutely filthy she got. She had fun and then I’ve been cleaning either her or the apartment ever since. So I’ll share a photo of her waking up beside me last week.
Little Miss JuJu better enjoy these precious few days while she can before she gets bumped down the pack order.
Okay, I am snuggling away this morning, listening to the rain pelting the window. Arggh, I want to sleep a bit more but I have to pee. I roll over and this is what I see.
Good morning, princess!
Yes, a dog on my 800 count thread pillowcases. She didn’t even move when I took the picture. Hubby was away in Whistler for 2 days on a business thing, so when I came home last night he was sleeping on the couch, then went to bed and this is who I woke up with. Not a bad trade, I’d say!
Oh, and since WordPress won’t let me upload videos for free, I had to humiliate myself and post this on YouTube. Happy JuJu Fridays!
Please note in the video, my house is not usually that messy. Okay, it is, but the dog did it! Seriously go to Show and Tell.
Oh, yes, that’s my Lululemon hoodie jacket that I got last Christmas. I’ll wait while you look up the price.
I was crazy enough to buy her yet another toy – this one rubber – and it lasted oh, I don’t know, 30 minutes before she thought it would be a good idea to chew through the small hole at the end of it until she could get the squeaky thing out. Sigh. Bless her little razor teeth.
