Getting an Early Start

Snackers, Vladdy, & Piper @ the Park (he's not as mad as he looks, the sun was in his eyes)
Woke up this morning to Vladdy barking and howling to go outside.  As annoyed as I want to be that he woke me up I can't help but be proud of him for letting me know he needed to go out and considering how much he tinkled I think it's safe to say he waited as loooooong as he possibly could. lol  But I waited to feed him breakfast because it's ok to bark if he needs to go out but I won't have him waking us up when he thinks he's ready to eat.  He complained a little bit but then got quiet so I waited 20 minutes and then fed him, Piper, and the cats.  After that I gave Vladdy his medicine (the vet has him on an antibiotic for a little bit of an upper respiratory infection) and some water, then cooked up a couple of eggs for him and Piper.

The egg is good for Piper because she has dry skin and allergies so it helps keep her skin moist and her coat shiny.  It's good for Vladdy because he is a very rapidly growing pup so the extra protein and calories will help him build muscle faster (it's like a protein shake for body builders) and it will also keep his coat soft and shiny too.

I decided that since I was in the kitchen anyway I might as well make some breakfast for Snackers and I so I cooked up half of an egg sandwich with balsamic and cheese (no mayo) and then I did the dishes from breakfast and from dinner last night.

Now I'm sipping coffee with skim milk (bleh, I need to buy creamer today) and hanging out with Snackers before he leaves for work and it's only 8:15 a.m.  Damn I feel accomplished!  Snackers and I got all of the cleaning done yesterday other than the remainder of the laundry so after he leaves for work and I get done with my school work I think I might try some decorating ideas on photos of my soon-to-be-new-house and then after work Snackers and I have errands to run.  Yay!

P.s. I'm thinkin' I look pretty damn good in that see-saw pic huh?!  Wooot!

  • 7 flights of stairs
  • Playing: Took Vladdy outside with a new rope toy we picked up at the dollar store and we ran around and played fetch for about 30-45 minutes.  Ok ... actually, I was trying to play fetch with him but really he was playing keep-away from me.
  • Playing: Took Vladdy and Piper to another new dog park tonight, that's three different parks in three nights.  This one had an agility course so we went through it first with Piper, who took to it instantly like she'd been doing it her whole life.  Then we slowly and patiently taught Vladdy how to do it and he didn't do too bad aside from the fact that he can't really do the jumps yet.  Then we ran around with them a little and played chase.
