I think you're right. He did a lot better yesterday and last night.

Your new dog is a cuties and hope it gets better.
It is kind of a shot in the dark when you adopt. The first dog that I was looking at was a pomeranian. He was a beauty. The girl had to come out for a home visit, and while she was here, she sprung a little news on me with a recent picture. He had been in a dog fight and had a huge gash with exposed meat . I had to pass on that one.

How old is he? Why was he up for adoption?

He's a doll! Best of luck and keep us posted!

I'm calling him Buddy. He's about a year old. He was a stray picked up off the street. I'm pretty sure he was somebody's inside dog. He has the lap sitting down pat . You never know. Some people just turn them out for whatever reason, or maybe he's a little escape artist.

I think his biggest problem area is going to be jumping up on my legs while I'm walking. That may well have been why ended up for adoption. I could see that being dangerous with an elderly person or very young kids. I don't know how yet, but I'm going to try and break him of that.

He's a cone head right now .

Don't be fooled, Sucker. When I wake up, I'll be full of piss and vinegar.



He's really doing a lot better .

Went to the early Mass this morning, then proceeded to spend way too much time on the internet, except for some time well spent outside in the sun while the loaf was baking.
I guess we're supposed to get some storms coming this way tomorrow so I'll be indoors cleaning and whatever else.
Yes!! another day off.

I stopped by a garage sale today and got a #8 Wagner dutch oven for 10 bucks - it was used for camp cooking only.

One of my church buds fell off his ladder last Sat. and broke his pelvis and 3 ribs. I stopped by nursing home to visit - he's in for a few more weeks for OT/PT then home. No more gutter cleaning for him.

Afterwards stopped by Safeway and got a chicken to grill tonight.

A broken pelvis is a long recovery, especially with the broken ribs. I hope he recovers quickly, JW. My brother broke his pelvis and had his bladder punctured...not pretty.

.................

I see photobucket snatched my pic...the jerks .

The other day I could tell that Buddy had a little treasure. I couldn't get close enough to tell for sure because he would snatch it and run like lightning, but it looked like a Keurig k-cup. I was thinking...Well, that's great. He's been in the kitchen trash. No trash disturbance though.

I had to trick him into thinking that I was going to feed him so that I could get the leash on him and find out WTH he had that he thought was so magical. Turns out, it was one of those dome shaped covers that are used to cover the screws for attaching a toilet to the floor .

What's next? He's also fascinated with those springy doorstops with the rubber caps. This has been a real learning experience.

You'll be hearing spronggg and the little caps will go missing if the stops are the kind that have them.

Some of the rest is kinda gross, fair warning!

The pugs like to "find" paper towels and kleenex, then shred and eat them. Used are better. We've also been known to "find" things in under desk and bathroom trashcans as well. Empty toilet paper rolls are treasures and a good source of fiber doncha know.

They like to "find" mommy's scrunchies and daddy's dirty socks too, and eat them. Fortunately, they have all come out one way or the other, and mommy and daddy have learned to make sure those kind of things are kept out of reach. We also managed to chew up a pair of glasses beyond repair.

Roxy.... the boxer next door, loves to meticulously tear toilet paper, and paper towels tubes. She will tear in little pieces, and pile it in one area. She doesn't eat the tube; but just tears it up in pieces. We save them in a big bag for her.

Lol at the dirty socks and used kleenex, medtran.

My little guy is a panty man. When I shuck my clothes before a shower, I have always just piled them up on the floor and picked them up later, not anymore though. He'll pick the shirt off the top of the pile, go straight for the panties, and head out to the dining room .

My Gretchen used to jump inside a laundry basket and sleep there when she was a puppy all those years ago.
One day I found her firmly stuck inside the sleeve of a sweatshirt.
I miss her so.

Yeah well, you should have seen me the first time I got presented with one of the rejects on the living room floor. I was like what in the f...... h... is this. I was not a happy camper when I finally figured out it was a sock.

OMG, the panties reminded me of the kittens at my dad's. His cat had kittens when I was staying with him (dementia) when stepmom was in hospital. By the time she got out of the hospital and rehab, the kittens were all old enough to be running around the house and playing, but not quite old enough to be weaned yet. SM had just come home and people were going in and out of the house to see her. I knew I was missing a pair of panties that I had dropped in the floor in the bedroom (they all slept with me) when I took a shower the night before, but figured they had dragged them under the bed during the night, decided I'd crawl under there and get them later after the day was done. Nope, they had deposited them under 1 of the chairs in the living room and 1 of my aunts had to announce to the whole room that somebody's drawers were under the chair. Two of the little buggers decided to come home with me and 1 stayed with momma.
