It finally feels like spring this week! At, least, during the day. It was still very chilly on our walks in the morning. So Conrad had to don a sweater AGAIN. BUT ... we have some good news! We discovered in looking for a new groomer, that Conrad's groomer is still with the same company, … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Spring!
Conrad and I walked up to the park on Saturday AND Sunday. The temperatures were mild both days but drizzle and mist plagued us both days as well. But we don't melt in water, so we went!
Please tell me what we have been experiencing here in Texas is Winter's last gasp. I layered up Conrad for our walk on Saturday. And once again on Sunday, it was too cold and wet to even bother leaving the house. I think we will both be happier once we can do things outside without … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Last Gasp?

I had to remind myself of such circumstances to keep from questioning my decisions. The first … Continue reading Minor Setbacks
Conrad's activity has been restricted while he's recovering from his surgeries. Mostly, he's been irritated with having to wear a shirt in the house, but it's to keep him from scratching at his sutures. The biggest difference in his routine has been no walks to the park. This happens sometimes anyway because of weather, but … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Almost All “Rested”

Eli responds to voice commands pretty well now, and although I knew he was completely irritated with getting wet, I was glad to have got him moving and exercising. His is still struggling with feeling relaxed in the … Continue reading Who’ll Stop the Rain
