Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Yay Opal I think the biggest dilemma I have with the calming drugs is that most of them seem to make the dog drowsy and are things that one should give to the dog about 30 minutes before the noise starts. Not something that would be given on a daily basis to help the dog generally feel more at ease....

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Best wishes for Delta to feel better soon. OH has been taking the dogs out for a morning walk most days recently while I am at work. Then Sky gets a second walk in the evening. Sirius really seems to have been traumatized by Independence Day fireworks this year. She doesn't seem to be getting over i...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Small steps. Last week, Sirius did not have a single walk. It was simply too hot and she really didn't want to go out anyway. OH has considered taking her/the dogs for a walk during the daytime, but it is generally after noon and the height of the day's heat before he is ready to go anywhere. OH has...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Poor Jasper. Judyn that vacation spot seems just marvelous except for the drive part. :lol: Our beach vacation spot is about an 8 hours drive away. As I have gotten older and had some vision issues which have mostly resolved with treatment for high blood pressure, I am finding myself reluctant to dr...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Delta looks great! This thing with Sirius is getting a bit old. I decided last night after she said she wanted to go for a walk, only to head straight for the van, that if she really wanted a van ride that badly, I would drive her to the park. Our side door doesn't unlock easily with the key, so we ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Good to hear how everyone is getting along. Glad that Jasper is on the mend. I finally got Sirius to take a little walk to the park last night. OH spent time on Monday putting in some fencing so that the dogs will have a little play area at my parent's house. He has been recovering ever since, so no...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

My mother had surgery last week and came home on Sunday. I was to be her primary caregiver once she returned home. The plan was to also have Sirius along as her neighborhood has much less fireworks activity than ours. Unfortunately she collapsed/fell when transferring from the van seat to her scoote...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Happy Birthday Delta. Wow seems like only a year ago not two. :shock: Sirius got all excited about going on our walk this evening and then when the door opened, she refused to go outside. Poor puppy must have heard something go pop although we did have some thunder rumbles earlier today too. So Sky ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Man Delta, you need to get past that youthful klutzieness. :D Wow Shalista $15 for 3 months worth of food. I pay about $15 for about 2 weeks worth of food for my two. :lol: Another walk cut short this evening due to fireworks. Poor Sirius has been having a rough go of our evening walks lately, which...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Sounds like everyone is having some great walks. We had a very pleasant walk at the battlefield this evening. The grass is getting quite tall on the fields which is reducing our dodge space unless we want to increase our chances of coming home with ticks. OH decided today that he wasn't dodging. The...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Good learning of new skills Shalista. Great that Bax was able to relax and, get some pets that he was comfortable with. That learning to read body language is kind of a two sided thing. It is good to know when the dog is feeling uncomfortable and to be able to respond appropriately for the dog's com...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

We had a much better walk today than yesterday. :D Temps have gone from the 50s and 60s F to the 80s F. A bit too warm for the dogs. Sky is still blowing a bit of coat and Sirius hasn't started yet. We waited until just about sunset to take our walk this evening at the battlefield. We saw deer and a...

Re: Accidentally awesome (or not)

Turn around Just in regular conversation on drag me down the sidewalk walks of an out and back nature, I would say it's time to turn around and essentially drag on the leash until the dog followed me in the other direction. Then one day I realized she understood "turn around." This simple unintended...
