Things that make you go woo-woo
Just checking in with my faithful blog readers, both of you :)
Late July, I got myself a puppy at the Terre Haute Humane Society. He's a little chihuahua mix. He's very sweet and very rambunctious.
It's been a little bit of an adjustment for the granddaughter. She's got some jealousy stuff going on. She wants to play but she gets him so riled up that he inevitably ends up scratching her or nipping her and then she of course screams which escalates it MORE!
The cat at first was standoffish but now they play/fight continually. I noticed this morning the dog has many bite marks and scratch marks on his tender little puppy flesh. I'll have to remember to trim nails often.
Potty training is hard! But we are working hard at it. I'd like to have it accomplished before winter.
He walks with me some times but I've decided I need to do leash training outside the confines of my walks. I'm walking for my health and stopping continually doesn't cut it.
Hubby, granddaughter and I traveled to Indianpolis yesterday to have lunch with our son and his wife. She fixed a really nice turkey meatloaf and roasted veggies. I was impressed.
We also delivered their Christmas present. Yes, we know it's August, but they needed it now. We got them a new computer. It was a Lenovo. The same one I bought myself in July.
