I was originally supposed to be working on a sponsored post today, but would you believe the product got lost in the mail? No one received theirs so the posts are going to have to be rescheduled while they try to track down the packages. Crazy, right?
I thought this would now be a good opportunity to catch up on some odds and ends.
I want to thank Sue at the Talking Dogs blog for passing along this award to us. As with all awards there are rules….that I’m going to break, accept for the one where I thank her! I can’t seem to narrow down three things that I am grateful for, though I know I am very grateful for blogging friends like Sue who think of me in this way. Most of the blogs I follow and love have already received this award, and I have trouble narrowing it down to 7 anyway. You all deserve it.
Spring Finally Sprung and the Pool is OPEN!
Only two weeks ago I wrote about how the pool wasn’t open yet, but we are happy to report that it is now open for business! I was anxious because I wanted to see how Luke would like it, and guess what? He had no qualms about following his sisters right in there!
In other signs of spring, the forsythias have been in full bloom and now are already shedding their beautiful yellow flowers and will be turning green.
You can see the grass isn’t all green yet though! My daffodils have been in bloom as well though. Mine always seem to be behind everyone else’s…but they made it!
We are finally getting into the swing of our spring workouts, and I hope to share more about what we’ve been doing next week on FitDog Friday. Speaking of FitDog Friday, they had their one year anniversary a few weeks ago, and I aced their quiz and won a $50 AmEx gift card by random draw! We bought some fun stuff with the card….
We plan to use these colorful cones in some fun games and workouts that we have learned from SlimDoggy. The dogs also got an Unbreakoball which Luke loves, and some Jones Natural Chews tender chicken taffy which they are CRAZY for! Their blogger Flea has been telling us how great their stuff is, and she wasn’t kidding! We also got some oral care gel (thanks, Emma, for reviewing that), and some organic wheat grass seeds. I have heard that wheat grass is good for dogs and since Luke eats grass like crazy, I’m hoping he’ll eat some of this and maybe stop tearing up our lawn!
You may think he’s cute, but Luke has really been a brat lately! He’s 6 1/2 months old now and even though he is learning well at obedience class, he is just into everything. He takes small holes in our screens and turns them into big gaping holes. He is obsessed with the plug in the pool….he chewed up the first one and we had to get a replacement, and he just wouldn’t leave it alone! So we had to try inserting the plug from underneath so he couldn’t pull it out. So he pushed it out and then was smart enough to go to the other side where it would come out and dig around the pool to try to get it! My hubby put it in good and tight now so we’ll see if it stays (I’m guessing I probably won’t be able to get it out when it’s time to drain it!). We can’t leave him alone for a minute or he’s into something. But then other times he’ll just be hanging around outside, laying on the deck being good, or he’s in the yard chewing on a stick. He loves being outdoors, but it’s hard to watch him every minute.
As usual, I had more to ramble on about than I thought, so I guess I’d better wrap it up for this time! Thanks so much to Love is Being Owned by a Husky, and Ruckus the Eskie for hosting the Thoughtless Thursday blog hop….we’re happy to be joining in for the first time!
