I have no idea how many of you watched Westminster, but the dachshund most definitely won the popular vote! Anyway, Conrad is getting very tired of taking antibiotics and wearing clothes in the house. I am hopeful we can spend a little extra outside time in the park on Saturday. We haven't been since before … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Mood
Ahhh ... context. Because analyzing situations in a vacuum may lead to misconceptions. I've got three minor setbacks to go over today that would actually look a lot more than minor if it weren't for the circumstances surrounding them. 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”
I finally just said "f u weather" last night and powered through a longe in sideways drizzle. 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

After I dropped him off this morning, I NEEDED breakfast tacos. I sat at work low key freaking out, but the vet's office called before noon to … Continue reading Conrad Update!

While my cutoff temperature for both walking the dog and riding the horse is freezing, Conrad and I did make it up to the park on Saturday and on Monday. (Sunday morning was 28F. No walkeez.) On Saturday, it was EXTREMELY windy, … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Walkeez
Apologies for the lack of posts, but work priorities come before blog priorities. My dog and my horse are good! Not much to update this week, actually, which seems like a positive trend. It's still winter here, meaning damp and cold. Thursday looks reasonable, but that gradually descends into crap again this weekend. Not good … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Still Here!
Conrad went back to the vet on Monday, for his senior wellness check up, vaccinations, and a reassessment of two (possibly lipomas) growths -- one on his belly and one behind his right shoulder. His check up went well and he is in good health! He does get stressed at the vet, but other than … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Check Up
