This is my week of vacation, and it's not turning out how I'd planned! I took a week off mainly to potty train our two new puppies (cute as little teddy bears!), and to clean house and get some things done in the yard.
On Friday night my son called to ask if I could watch their dog (a very hyper Labradoodle) while they go on vacation from Sunday to Thursday. I couldn't say no, but I wasn't thrilled about the addition! Our tiny little pups are scared of the huge "monster" dog, even though she's nice as can be to them - she's just so HUGE in comparison, everything she does startles them!
Now today it's been raining all afternoon. So much for potty training! They've just been sleeping all afternoon, and I can't blame them. Plus, another high note, this morning they just kept throwing up over and over again. First one pup, then the other. I think it was from eating too much grass and weeds, which they seem to search for like it was chocolate! At least we've been sticking to the kitchen, and before the rain started I kept the patio door open. They were actually pretty good about getting outside before they got sick, at least half the time :) And there was no carpet to worry about, at least!
So that's been my day! Hope everybody else's has been better! The rain is stopping, anyway - we may be able to get outside before there are any accidents!
