Weekend Links and Catch-Up

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend so far, I know I have! :-)

Since I don't have a lot to talk about this evening/morning, I thought I'd post some recent photos that you haven't seen yet! 

Considering that the yard was getting crazily overgrown, I decided to help Domeek out on Friday and did some gardening! I mowed, chewed down some weeds (see the second photo), and found then destroyed a kitty toy from the garage!

Ginger has been bothering me all week, he keeps following me around and glaring...I keep trying to hide, but he knows all my spots!  As long as he doesn't touch my toys!!

He had another visit to the Vet on Friday where they did a fructosamine test to see how his blood sugar has been ranging over the past couple of weeks. Looks as though everything is stabilizing, so no increase or decrease in insulin, and that means he doesn't have to see the vet for 3 months...he's super happy about that one!

Silly Domeek forgot that we were out of food yesterday, so that meant I got to have hot dogs and cheese for dinner...woo hoo!! This is how I like to eat...I'm a weirdo! ;-)

Tomorrow we're going to start using a training system called Crate Games by the famous Canadian trainer and agility star, Susan Garrett

Freckles the Dog Crate Games

Supposedly this "game" is going to build motivation, self-control, and adoration for my crate...hm, yeah, well we'll see about that one! Domeek wants me to love my crate, since we are going to be taking a long (in-cabin) plane ride after Christmas. Any of you had experience with this system?

  2. We love it when they run out of food and we have to have human food! Unfortunately it doesn't happen much around here.

  3. The dog on the cover of Crate Games looks like you, so that's a good sign. Let us know if the techniques are fun.
    Your couch handstand while eating is hilarious!

  6. Dear Goose,

    You have a fun Yard! Your cat-friend doesn't look very happy, but I understand why. I don't like the terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad place called Vet either.

    Wait - did you say HOT DOGS AND CHEESE?!?!?! Can I come have Dinner at your house??

    Licks,
    Cobi
