The Worst Morning Walk with Dogs

The Worst Morning Walk with Dogs

Everyone has their own morning routine right? Well my day always starts with a quick morning walk with the dogs. Usually before I do much else, I am out the door with the dogs. Now I’m pretty comfortable where I live. I don’t feel the need to look spectacular whenever I go out, but I do try to look like a functioning human. One particular morning I was in a pair of tattered, old, almost see through sweatpants (they probably…

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’ta left ya.

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’ta left ya.

I know my most recent posts have been severely lacking with crazy amounts of time in between them.  I could apologize again and say I’m trying to work on it, but I’m sure any readers out there have heard it enough.  The truth of the matter is after Bacio’s surgery and recovery I was able to refocus my life on me a little bit and got caught up in my own life for a while.  The dogs have been fairly…

Crawling out of the Cave

Crawling out of the Cave

It has been way too long since the last update, post, etc.  A lot of things have been going on recently that have draw my attentions elsewhere.  I apologize for that.  I know a number of people have found their way to this blog because of all the FHO posts and you are probably all wondering how the little labrynees is doing.  It has been almost a year since his second FHO and his hips are holding up great!  He…

Recent Happenings

‘ello luf. Summer is here in full force.  Finally got the AC window units in and running, the dogs are much happier.  Yuki was surprisingly more tolerant of the heat than Bacio.  Maybe because she can comfortably lay on her back, legs spread, showing off her goodies to the invisible people in the sky…. or anyone walking by. I had been sleeping on the couch before the AC was running because my room was waaaayyy too hot.  I noticed Bacio…

Giving a Siberian husky a bath

Giving a Siberian husky a bath

Yesterday the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and Sam and the dogs were out at the park.  It was a beautiful day, but unfortunately the grass hasn’t had a chance to grow yet, so thawing bits of the park came home with us after our walk.  Where there wasn’t mud, there was dry dirt.  Yuki has been in need of a bath for some time now, but this was just the icing on the cake. Today was supposed…

Too big for a Cage

Too big for a Cage

Well, it is official. Bacio is too big for his crate. I finally got him in there and he can barely stand up inside there. You know, Bacio has always seemed tiny to me, it’s things like this that put his size into perspective. Off to find something that can contain this beast. Heh.

Dog Farts vs Human Farts

Dog Farts vs Human Farts

C’mon anyone that owns dogs has had to deal with these.  Anyone who’s been around dogs has probably been unpleasantly surprised by a bout of dog fart at some point.  Dog Fart is no laughing matter.  They are some serious room clearing weapons.  If they found a way to condense them and bottle them,  I’m pretty sure they’d be more effective than mace and tear gas. Now human farts on the other hand,  they can be really bad and room…

The New Year Plans…

The New Year Plans…

First, lets start with a big Happy New Year to everyone out there.  Hope this year is even better than the last.  Maybe a year without predicted apocalypses will make people more calm.  2013 will bring some changes for my dogs and I.  The last two posts about Bacio’s hips (Background story here, and X-ray and surgery consult here) have led me to make the decision to have his first FHO procedure done.  I called the vet yesterday and have…

Anxious

Anxious

Today I find myself very anxious and almost excited to call the vet next week to make Bacio’s appointment for surgery. I’ve been thinking all day about ways I can raise funds to pay for the procedure.  I will offer photography at discounted rates and I’m thinking about some sort of party for him.  If anyone has any ideas I would be glad to hear them. My new years resolution is for my boy to be pain free by the…
