Nothing to report. Didn’t even join Mr. Judy for the dogwalks. I just left this in so I can do my usual format for next week — I’m expecting to start running again at some point next week. And rebuilding. Again. Sigh.
Favorites of the week
There were lots of doggy snuggles. Now the truth is Bandit is not a particularly snuggly dog, as I’ve written about a few times before.
He was unusually snuggly on Monday. While I was gone that night, Mr. Judy said that he got up every time he (Mr. Judy) did, and would go to the staircase. I’ve been gone before (under much less dramatic circumstances) and he’s never done that before.
A running joke the rest of the week was that any time he did snuggle with me we had to worry. Because it truly seemed as though he sensed something was up on Monday. Even though I’m still not completely well, he’s mostly gone back to his non-snuggliness (why yes, I completely made that word up).
Lola didn’t seem to notice anything amiss, she was just very happy when I reappeared.
All the training with the dog door paid off big time Monday. We’d already fed the dogs (but not ourselves). We were gone more hours than we’ve probably ever left them since we took Bandit in. They were able to go in and out to the yard.
They’ve pretty much mastered the door. They don’t always want to use it, but that just means they probably don’t really want to go out. We no longer have to hold it up for them, and most of the time they push through it no problem. The timing was perfect!
It also seemed like every show we watched this week had something to do with hospitals or fainting, hence the synchronicity. I also found us a new pet sitter for next weekend (Mother’s Day) that is literally just a little over a mile from our house. They have four chihuahuas. Meant to be, right?
We’ll see. We’re a little bit concerned as we’re their first customers — and they have a pool. We really need a backup sitter, though, and this would be so convenient so fingers crossed.
Do you board your pets, or have someone come in for them?
Doing an anti rain dance? Seriously, we’re plenty green now!
Any synchronicity in your week?
