Conrad and I do just fine in the heat because we stay in air conditioning. If we walk, it's in the mornings, usually before 8am, before the pavement heats up. But because I've seen some idiots walking their dogs in the afternoons lately -- when it is HOT AS F*** HERE -- I thought I'd … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Pet Safety in Hot Weather
Conrad had a new groomer on Friday. He has mixed feelings about being groomed. He doesn't like going out to the groom-mobile. But when he comes back in all clean and fresh and smelling a little like chai tea, he can't stop wagging his tail at the groomer. This groomer trimmed his nails nice and … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday
Happy Independence Day (in advance of tomorrow)! Keep your pets safe. Luckily, Conrad does not care at all about fireworks. He'll just sleep through all of it. Fireworks are banned in my neighborhood, but that never stops anybody. I am hoping there aren't too many fireworks near the barn, too. Some of the barn neighbors … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Happy 4th!
Conrad spends a lot of time jogging from scent to scent on our walks. He always looks busy to me. Like he is extremely busy and cannot be interrupted. But sometimes he stops for a second to sniff the air. Of course those are very brief pauses. It's a good thing his legs are short, … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Busy

I know it's not technically summer yet, but I think we are finally past all the chilly mornings for a while. Not that this stops Conrad from burrowing under blankets while inside. But at least our walks are warm now! No more sweaters for a while, so I have cleaned them and they are stashed … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Summer Begins!
The state legislature may have gavelled out but work hasn't quite settled down yet! Hopefully by next week I can attend to this space a little more regularly.
Let's just enjoy the cuteness of Conrad walking, this time sans sweater: I worked until midnight last night so I am not moving super fast today. Apparently this week is known as "Hell Week" here. I have been here for over ten years and somehow missed that appellation until now. Trying not to count the … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Waddles
Conrad is my little reliable bright spot at the end of the day. Blogging is a little slow lately and not just because Eli is injured. WORK IS NUTS. BUT it's all over on Memorial Day! Yes, I will be at work ON Memorial Day. It's the last day of the legislative session, and this … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Countdown to Sine Die!
