I feel bad I have been missing in action around here lately. I promise we are all still alive and well. I hope to get caught up around the blogosphere tomorrow.
I have exciting training news, (okay, not that exciting but still news) but really want to save it for it’s own post. Just to peak your curiosity it is Training Levels news at last!
In other day to day goings on Maizey’s eyes seem to be doing okay. She is on an antibiotic and ointment for the eye infection. She has a recheck with the ophthalmologist in two weeks or so, hopefully it is cleared up by then.
In the mean time we have been working on shaping her to take her antibiotic instead of bribing her by slathering it in peanut butter. I feel bad for her having to take something so icky so we are using very high value treats to erase the yucky taste from her memory.
Since she may have a long run of antibiotics or allergy pills ahead of her I thought we would should see if she can learn to take it without the bribing. I would love any suggestions if anyone else has experience with daily pill giving.
In Magnus news, he and I are headed to the vet to find out when he can get his extra set of teeth pulled. I really, really, really did not want him to be put under anesthetic just for baby teeth removal, but it’s pretty obvious they aren’t going to come out on their own before they ruin his bite. So I guess we will up the pet budget this month, bite the bullet and get it done.
In real life news, Meusbandy started a new job. This is good news, but since it’s a completely new line of work if has meant many changes. We are now in a green business of hauling and recycling cardboard!
It has been a time and energy consuming process to for both of us to learn new things, as I will be doing all of the record keeping for us. I forgot how much time even the little things like business licenses, cards, insurances, etc. etc. etc. take to get set up.
Thankfully I think we are coming ’round the bend with that and I will be able to spend more time on what really matters-the dogs! They are feeling very neglected with Crazymomlady and Moneybagsdad working so much. They are used to me having much more time for games than I have this week.
In a last bit of news I am attending a K9 First Aid seminar at CAD’s on Sunday. I am excited to have the opportunity and will report back how it goes.
Walking Challenge News
Until then I would love to hear everyones progress on the Walking Challenge. You are all whooping my busy behind and I want to keep up to date. Plus then I will have that much more motivation to get out there and march!
