I am so much enjoying his being away. My life is much simpler without him. It will be his last show. He will have his championship. I have other objectives for him. I think agility would be fun!
I am going to Stehekin later this week. It’s a small town that you can only get to by boat or back packing. We will do hiking and fishing there. It is in the North Cascades National Park, so no dogs allowed. Oh boy! A vacation from dogs!
It’s a lot of work. You never know whether you are doing good or not. I just try my best and suppose that will be good enough. Sometimes I don’t get around to it and feel guilty.
That challenging dog did well at the shows. He got “Best of Winners” and “1st Place” ribbons! I just want to have him neutered and this is a step in that direction.
I took Romeo to dog training yesterday. It’s more of a classic obedience training place. Anyway, the trainer did not stay 6 feet away. I shall put off training at this place until I have gotten both shots and some time after.
I made an appointment for the dog, Romeo, to be evaluated. Then they will decide what sort of training he needs. I think lots is the answer. I will hope for the best.
I am now looking into how to deal with Romeo, who is now 13 months. He is jumping up and biting Mark when ever he sees him outside. He kills everything he touches. He fights with Jasper. I think we need some real training.
I was sitting in the living room relaxing and suddenly wondered what the puppy was chewing on. It was my phone. Another $500 of puppy expenses. I had a backup phone, but Verizon says it’s too old. So now I have no phone until 1/5. I don’t know if I will last. Amazon also chose this moment to insist on two way authentication. That does not work so well when you don’t have a phone, so yet another phone call to resolve that. Not my favorite day.
He fusses a lot lately. I think he wants the run of the house, but I am waiting until he quits picking up all of the socks he sees. Sometimes it’s hard to get the socks away from him. He saw his first snow yesterday! It was snowing hard so by the time we went out there was an inch on the ground. He was looking up at it saying what’s this weird stuff. Then he discovered it was edible, and he told me he would eat it all. He then attempted to eat all of the snow.
Now that Christmas orders are over, and I did survive, I think I might have some time to work on a website. We will see. Right now the dogs are both barking and want attention. Life is hard, and then you die. Oh some good things do happen in the mean time. Let’s hear it for the good things.
