    I'm confused as to why this isn't a picture of the guy all hunkered down on your couch... :confused: ;)


    Why have I never bothered to teach a "go to your place" command at the office for Recon? Sometimes he can be a little bit of a pest always moving around. Worked on it for 5 minutes today and voila! Now I have a puppy who doesn't want to leave the dog bed. HOORAY for canned cheese.

    Cohen has been on her best behaviour lately, and has been a pleasure to both work and play with.

    In no way could this be directly correlated to me having Timbits in my bait pouch.

    Shamanis laying on his back with his legs spread. He is intact and fuzzy, and his balla bear a striking resemblence to a troll doll head. Yep, I'm headed straight to hell

    I just realized how much buying canned food for Cynder is going to cost per month. Ouch. :( It's going to double the amount I spend on dog food and I could just barely afford my current budgeted amount. Ugh. I am so glad she isn't bigger or a dog that needs to eat a lot to keep weight on, or I'd really be screwed.

    What about grinding the dry food up and mixing it to a paste the right consistency?

    As it turns out, no, I am not above squirting kong paste directly into my puppy's mouth to get her to retrieve something.

    I second all of this. Every single dog I've seen, including my own, have been nuts the past few days!

    I have no idea. Probably not, but I'll look in to it!

    Not sure how well she'd eat it, but may have to try it if things get tight.

    Luckily, I just realized that 4Health's canned food is only .99 a can. That makes things a bit better. It'll still be around $2.00 a day to feed her...but that may be okay, depending on how quickly Abrams will go through a bag of food by himself.

    Crossbone is too impressionable and good at generalizing all the bad things.

    I thought it was ridiculously adorable when he started putting his head down when begging and now he does it all the freaking time. And sometimes when you tell him sit or wait or stop it he's like "look at me! My head is down! I'm so cute!"

    Still ridiculously adorable :D



    Also learned today when his toys are in a laundry basket he is unable to figure out how to get them out...then he started putting toys IN the basket then running to us pleading for help to get them out. He's so cute and I'm not sure how I ever got through a day without his silly antics!!!
