Happy Thorsday! It’s been one of those weeks… I can’t even fuss about Gretchen fussing in her post, because both of their humans have been gone too much this week.
What do you do to make it up to your pets when you’re gone more than usual? The last two pairs of dogs we’ve had have been rather punitive; we spoil them, and then we all suffer when their needs aren’t met.
This blooper photo basically says it all… If I want cooperative, good models/dogs, then they need us to stick to their schedule. That includes walkies, kibbles on time, lots of cuddling, playing or whatever THEY want while we’re all hanging out…
Little do they know that the world really does revolve around them. They’ve been invited to League meetings (and I’m grateful I’ve been able to avoid taking them thus far), but now we can add arranging for my nephew to cover for the Knight while I’m out of town so that the pampered princesses don’t have to sleep alone.
Why yes, I do realize some people get pet sitters. We’ve done that before too, but this time, it was easier to just arrange for the Knight to head home to sleep in his own bed, with his spoiled rotten brats. Hem.
Thankful Thursday? Well, I’m grateful that my nephew didn’t think that was a silly/crazy request at all. I’m happy that I’m finally healthy and fit enough that I could let Sissy set the RAPID pace for our short walk yesterday afternoon, so the girls did get to cover a lot of ground, even though we didn’t have much time to walk.
What are you thankful for today?
