Texas has finally begun to thaw out today — my condolences and deepest sympathies to anyone north of here right now. I don’t know how y’all do it! But we did just have some unusually cold temperatures here, including 17F at my house this morning. But the sun came out and the winds died and we are warming up to near 50F! YAY!
However, while we were cold, instead of a bunch of bonus walks for Conrad during my days off, we got a lot of indoor time. Which means lots of curling up under blankets.
I also ate a lot of carbs.
And booped Conrad on the nose a lot.
I have also started working with Conrad on trimming his nails myself. It is going along well so far. He is treat-motivated and I am only trimming a very little bit at a time. Visits to the groomer stress him out a bit and he doesn’t seem to mind me working on one paw at a time if freeze dried turkey liver is involved. I also have a nail grinder tool, but Conrad really hates that (part of why the groomer’s stressed him) so we will have a ways to go before we get to use that. It would be a better choice for black nails, though, for sure!
