..heading for home - or in this case, the weekend!
I was less boggled yesterday, thank goodness LOL It was PuppyDay, which is the new name for Thursdays when Bill brings one of the puppies with him to meet me at work at lunch, and we walk along the waterfront. Yesterday was Maggie's day, and she was a very good girl.
Now, dog owners, if you're walking along and see another dog/owner combo coming toward you, and you hear the other dog owner say distinctly "no, we're not going to meet right now" while drawing their dog away from yours, would you then bee-line toward that dog/owner combo and allow your dog to go nose-to-nose with the other?
I don't think so! But some guy did, and Maggie was as tolerant as she could be before the other little dog bounced at her and Maggie then growled and bounced back. The other dog's owner let out a gasp and hauled his dog back in and walked off. Geez.
There's an initiative to recognize yellow ribbons on dog leashes as a means to symbolize that "my dog needs space, please don't approach" or something to that effect. Perhaps I should add a yellow ribbon to Maggie's leash and hope to educate people on not approaching.
Maggie looks very cute and sweet and harmless, but let me tell you she's one uppity lil b*tch! She doesn't tolerate someone she doesn't know in her face. For that matter, she doesn't tolerate someone she DOES know in her face - she's always grumbling and grousing and muttering at Bubbie, who in typical little brother fashion, bedevils her at every chance!
Anyway, except for that one small run-in, she did great. We managed 1.4 miles which is not that big a deal, but for a little epileptic puppy who usually has a seizure around 1 mile when it's hot, she did fantastic. Bill said she collapsed on the passenger seat of the Jeep (she had helped him drive to meet me, told you she was uppity! LOL) for the ride home and allowed him to do the driving by himself.

So, it's not that great of a differential. I was feeling snacky last night because I was tired. Really really tired. I was going to run after work, but had a check-in with the dentist to check on my extraction site. I walked to the office and back - about a mile round trip. That was the extent of my efforts yesterday, aside from the waterfront walk with Bill and Maggie. That's alright, I was tired and needed the break. I got to sleep at a reasonable hour, and I think I slept alright. I feel pretty good today, for the most part.
Actually, I'm feeling sorta cute today, for no particular reason. I snapped a pic to remind myself of this feeling.
And then of course because I'd much rather be a goofball!
It's the weekend, kiddos. If you're not a part of a challenge team, then I challenge you to track ALL your food this weekend, no matter what you eat. If you bite it, write it and see how you do!
