I'll take a piece of cake too!! I did have some yesterday when we went to our "adopted" grandson's birthday party!! Yes, this is a lot of work to get the house put back together!!!
Jack Russell's are very high energy but when she's tired she will finally slow down!!

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

I love animals with extra personalty. Jack Russel's are always in high gear. I can see why Zoey wouldn't be in bed early lol. Sounds like a lot of work Sandi!

That is a great picture of Lucy and I'm so glad she is adjusting so well.
Zoey stays up as long as we do, I don't think she would go to bed before us but our labs did! Guess they needed more sleep!!

So far I haven't been able to enjoy the floor much but it does look nice. The people who installed it still have to come back and do the "stuff" around the doors and carpet. Also tack the shoe molding down better, they didn't put enough nails in it. Then hubby may paint the baseboards as it shows where the carpet came to but the laminate isn't that high. Sooo not sure when we will get finished. I've been washing all the stuff that sits around so that when it can go back on the furniture it will be clean.

Well off for a much needed pedicure!!!! emoticon

Charlie goes to his bed if anyone goes to that end of the house anytime after 7. If no one stays in that area, he'll come out though and sleep on the love seat. We usually have to remove the cat since neither seems willing to share.

I had a good chuckle when you said Lucy goes to bed early. Henley is the same. He starts bugging me about 8. I wonder if that is a Hound thing. We have never had a dog that wanted to go to bed so early.

Sandi, I hope your clean up is over now and you are enjoying the new flooring. It seems that any improvement comes with lots of dirt and dust.

I plan to take Lucy to an obedience class. There is one now in process, and a new one will start in a few weeks. Until then, I have had the trainer do a one on one visit here at home. Weíve made some progress. Lucy can sit on command in the house, but doesnít seem to be able to carry over the same outside. She walks well on a leash and only pulls when the nose takes over (not too often). But on those rare times even food wonít distract her. She does a Stop when we are out walking and will stay until I give the word except for the nose mentioned above. She is housetrained, goes to her bed at 7:30 (before I go to bed) and stays there until I wake in the morning.

How goes the cleaning Sandi?

I have taken all of our dogs to an obedience class when they first came here. All except Charlie who was quite well trained by his previous owner. (Which always makes me wonder why he was found abandoned in a woods). Charlie's biggest fault was that he was a poor leash walker. We got him in December and it took me awhile to understand that at least some of the pulling on the leash when we walked was due to the cold. The day I noticed him shivering is the day I stopped insisting he go. Leash walking has definitely improved over the years with a bit of training.

Bollywood Zumba started last night. The Zumba class I signed up for at first didn't fill so I'm taking this one. Like the instructor and the class is not huge. I had fun.

Dad turns 92 today so I am going to spend the day with him. We will definitely visit his wife and go out to eat. I think a piece of pie will be involved too. The party is Sunday so he'll have to wait till then for the gift -- which I still have to buy but I know exactly what I'm getting.

Zoey loves her treats and will do most anything for them!! She is a true Chow Hound too!!
Busy day cleaning after getting the laminate floors put in while we were at the cabin. I'm sure I'll enjoy them when I finally get everything put back together!!!

A true Chow Hound lol. Let us know how it is going. Sometimes parks have dog training classes. They don't cost a lot. Just a thought.

Thanks for the goodie!! What a lovely sentiment too. Made me feel proud.

Coffee with friends this morning. I always enjoy this group of ladies. In the afternoon, I'm going to Dad's to clean out. Before my brother's visit, we found a large box of papers and that's what I plan to tackle.

Have a great day!

I was going to suggest treats too. I have trained all of my dogs that way. Some dogs prefer praise then treats. You know Lucy better then anyone. Look up YouTube videos "training dogs on a leash" They have a lot of info there. Hope that works for you.

Thanks Janet for reading my blog!

Sandi, have a safe trip back!

Thanks, Janet. I hate to go back but hubby has a doctor's appt. and we have dentist appts. and I have a hair appt. too.

Zoey is really a good walker but she loves to stop and sniff too much! Now I take her on her own walk and I do my power walk separate. Works better for us.

Have a good week everyone!

Nice to hear from you Sandi!! Safe travels this week.

Mauitn, I don't know your philosophy on training but to get my dogs to ignore things when we walk, I use treats. It is funny to see them, even now, have a bike pass by and they immediately look to me for a treat. Sometimes they get one but not very often at this point. Anything you can do to get Lucy to focus on you.

I have to go read Jeanne's blog now.

Today I have a retired teacher meeting in the morning and I must mow this afternoon.

Good grief, I must have completely lost this thread!!!!!!!!!
We are having a very rainy day but we sure need it.
Hope you all are having a good Sunday. We have to drive back to Tally this week for dr. Appt and dentist appts. Also the flooring people are suppose to have our laminate floors finished so if they do we have to get things cleaned up and all the stuff put back including all our china! What a job! Not looking forward to that.

Janet, hope your Dad had a nice birthday.
MAUITN, glad to hear you and Lucy are making progress!
Jeanne, Zoey sends kisses to Henley!!!

Janet, sending Happy Birthday wishes to your Father.

Lucy and I are making progress, but she continues to pull me when she gets so excited to get to the people and dogs we meet on our street. I need to find a way to slow her and not pull me. She is such a social animal and loves kids and dogs and wants to get to them. My household has only me. I need to plan some play dates for her to see if she would get over being so excited. Any advice.

It's been kind of quiet on here!!

All's well here. Charlie ate the eggshell from my breakfast out of the garbage yesterday. He came into the room I was in crunching away. I was immediately suspicious and when I went to check, it was gone. Today he tried to eat something from Burger King that was in the high grass in a park we walked around. I managed to get his mouth open and swish the stuff out. Not my favorite thing to do. Apparently he doesn't enjoy his special diet anymore than the average person.

I spent the week cleaning up and out at Dad's in preparation for my brother, 2 granddaughters and great grandson's visit. Saw them yesterday at a festival here but really would have liked to have the weekend to do stuff at my house. I need a vacation I think but really cannot get away. Dad turns 92 this week on Thursday but the celebration will be on Sunday.

Have a great week. Ear scratches for all the dogs!!

I hope the weather has calmed down for you Mauitn. Lucy is a good dog for not waking you.

How are Henley and Alice.

We're all fine here. My father only had one tooth taken out because it was so hard. The dentist believed he'd have an easier time healing if she just took one. The other is scheduled for next month. My brother is coming to stay for a couple of days so I will clean like crazy before the weekend and then have a couple of days off. I'm not sure if that is an improvement to my usual schedule.

Morning all. Lucy and I slept in this morning. We had storms come through last night and had a couple of power outages during the night. I have a generator that comes on automatically so not a problem, but I do hear the big motor start up. It is supposed to be cooler now. Off to dress for Church.

Have a Happy Sunday emoticon

I hope all is well with Sandi!!

You too Jeanne!!

Dad is having two teeth pulled today and I will take him for that and then maybe stay overnight with him. I'll see how things are going for him and play it by ear. I have my follow up appointment tomorrow from the mass that was removed. I think it is healing well but I can't see it very well.

Funny, because when you said you wanted a Hound, I wondered if you knew what you had in store. They can be stubborn. Not in a naughty way, but because of the nose. Lucy sounds mellow though. Henley is pretty mellow for a Bloodhound (he's 3/4), and listens pretty well for a Hound. Lucy is so pretty. I'm so glad she has worked out so well! emoticon

Confession time. I never had any kind of hound before, never knew anyone who did, and never had any hunters in my family. But I have fallen totally in love with Lucy and everything hound. LOL

LOL, Jeanne. I think you left the m out of mass. It was a relief to learn it was benign. My doctor ordered the thyroid ultrasound because she felt bilateral nodules. My lab work for my thyroid came back within normal limits so I have a good feeling. The ultrasound technician told me that if anything is wrong in the thyroid it will be slow growing. It always is I guess.

I agree with Jeanne, Mauitn. Lucy should be impressed if you ask me.

I wish you could share some rain too. I didn't know you were going through issues. So glad the ass is benign. That must have had you worried. I also hope your Thyroid is ok. What made them want to check that out?

Mauitn, you are walking great. Maybe Lucy isn't impressed, but I am, emoticon

Morning all.

Janet, I'm so glad to hear that the mass was benign. Prayers for the thyroid also.

I was so pleased that Lucy's picture was the mascot. I find myself taking picture after picture of her. LOL I'm still trying to be active with this boot on, but it does wear me down by the end of the day. I find I'm getting close 3 miles per day even with it on.

Sandi, How are things by you? Were you in the mountains when the hurricane was by your house? Was there a lot of damage?

Jeanne, I'm glad the fires aren't by you. I wish I could share some of our rain with California!!

Mauitn, I'm loving the picture of Lucy as our team mascot. She looks so relaxed!!

All's well here. I heard back yesterday about the mass that was removed (on me) and it was benign. Still waiting to hear about the ultrasound on the thyroid. Charlie just poked his head in the room. He must be thinking I'm dragging my heels this morning. Best get moving. Have a good one!!

Glad to hear everything is better with you and your family Janet. Hope your Dad does well Thursday, No fires near us thank goodness. Up north there are a couple still burning, but too far away to affect us.

Mauitn, that's good your foot is healing well. I bet you can't wait to get out of the walking boot. It beats a cast though.

Sandi, how is the walking going?

I'm glad you are continuing to improve Mauitn!! The dogs and I want you to "HEAL!" I bet Lucy loves her dog walker. It's great that you found someone to take her for a long walk.

Sandi, How's Zoey? I love the top you are wearing in the picture with the graduate. Is it sweater type?

Jeanne, We don't hear much about CA fires now with flooding in the south and hurricanes in FL and along the East Coast. Are they still raging?

I have the day mostly to myself. I cleaned a bit this morning and am doing laundry. I need to leave soon for the nursing home. I am meeting my dad and stepsister there. It's been awhile since I've been out there. I was going to see dad today but my stepsister plans to take him to her house. It'll be nice for him to have the change of pace and I wasn't planning anything very special. I won't see him now till Thursday because of out of town appointments for me and then DH. Thursday Dad is having two teeth pulled so I'll take him for that and stay overnight if need be. Busy week coming up. But, they all are so I will cherish the slow pace of today. Hope you've all gotten some relaxation in too!!

Morning all.

Sandi, glad you had a good lunch with you friend.

Janey, hope you and Charlie both got good reports from the docs.

Jeanne, the same for you. Hope the ultrasound is clear.

Iím doing well. I went to the orthopedist Wednesday and he said the ankle was healing and to come back in three weeks. He mentioned putting a lighter, air splint on at that time. I am thankful for the lady who is helping walking with Lucy. She does longer walks and I do the short yard walks.

It is a beautiful weekend here and I wish you all a happy and safe Labor Day.

Jeanne, That bunny area is still of major interest to Molly but we haven't seen any babies since. Never did see a mother bunny. Charlie's appointment went very well. Everything has healed well so I can go back to maintenance mode. I lose that battle periodically but I try.

I had a thyroid ultrasound yesterday. My doctor felt bilateral nodules so sent me for extra blood work and the ultrasound. I already know my lab was normal but I probably won't hear back about the ultrasound until next week sometime. I'm also waiting to hear back about a mass that was removed on Tuesday. Biopsy results are due next week sometime. Ironically, I thought my annual went very well. My weight was down and, although my blood sugar is still a little high, it too has gone down from last year's results. My doctor was quite happy with my progress.

Sandi, I loved the picture of you, your husband and the graduate. You look very good.

Mauitn, How are things with you? I hope you are healing well!!

Janet, hope your Doc appt. went well.For Charlie too! Poor baby bunny. Glad the other one is ok. No sign of their Mom? Henley would have wanted to go back and try and find the bunny too. Dog's nose is so keen. Come to think of it. Alice wouldn't want to leave. She is a little mother, and gets so concerned.

Sandi what did you have for lunch? Did you and Zoey get in a walk today?

Mauitn, how are you doing?

Quiet here. I hope that means you are all happily busy!!

Charlie has a wellness appointment at the vet tomorrow and, for a change, there are no concerns. His appointment is in the afternoon and I have my annual doctor visit tomorrow morning. I was originally scheduled for this past Friday but my doctor decided to be on vacation that day. I still kept my lab and mammo appointments on Friday so all I do tomorrow is see the doctor.

Tuesday my car gets a check up.

On yesterday's morning walk, we encountered a poor little baby rabbit who's head was gone. Yuck!! But both dogs passed it by. A few feet later we encountered a live baby rabbit. Charlie picked it up in his mouth but dropped it immediately. Then Molly picked it up and she too dropped it. I kept them away then and the little bunny ran off to the safety of the pine trees. I'm glad the dogs were good about leaving but I had to stop Molly from going back for several blocks. She can be such a stinker!!

Thanks Janet!
I did have a nice lunch with my Spark friend at a cute little restaurant in a nearby town. It was good to see her and she did do a good job nursing Zoey back to health when she rescued her!!
The rest of my day was busy too, had to go to the grocery store and some other errands. Didn't get but a short walk in and it started raining on us!!!

Congrats on your weight loss Sandi. Enjoy that lunch with your Spark Friend. She must have done well with Zoey because I think your little dog is a good one!!

Jeanne, My dogs are jealous about your trips to McDonalds. They'd like you to come pet sit them. I do not know what kind of bird Molly picked up yesterday. I felt so bad that I did not want to look close.

MAUITN, I'm glad you have someone to walk Lucy so you don't have to. Take good care of that foot and follow doctor's orders!!

Charlie is an awesome car rider. He gets in, lays down and never gets up. Of course, he is big enough to see out of the windows just by lifting his head. Molly is also a good car rider and I thank Charlie's calmness in helping her to learn to be a quiet car rider. The last two dogs we had were forever standing and trying to look out the front window.

My lab was a good traveler, Zoey does raise up every time the blinkers go on or we slow down. Yes, JRT's are VERY active! Zoey is 10 but she doesn't act like it!!!!

MAUITN glad you have someone to help out with exercising Lucy, hoping your foot heals quickly. I had foot surgery 4 yrs ago and it took awhile for it to heal.
Thanks for the congrats on my weight loss, I'll get there eventually!!

Today I'm having lunch with a Spark friend who lives in this area. We haven't gotten together in several years. She is the one that actually rescued Zoey and nursed her back to good health.

Have a good Thursday everyone!!

Morning all. Sorry I havenít posted. It seems that it is all I can do to get through the day. I walk Lucy for a quick, short walk early in the morning and last thing before bed and I have someone who is coming twice a day to walk her on longer walks. Iím managing with the boot, but it makes me slow and is heavy. It seems to wear me out just doing the needed things around the house.

We have had hot humid days, but the nights have dropped to much cooler temps. Nice. Jeanne, I also think we are going to have an early Fall as I see some leaves turning already.

Sandi enjoy the mountains. Congrats on the loss.

Lucy needs more practice riding in the car. She will settle down and lay down, but anytime I slow or stop, she get up to look out and doesnít have good balance when we start up again. She usually goes sliding into the side or back. I did get one of those covers that makes a sling which keeps her from falling into the floor. That helps.

I hear Jack Russel's are always on the go. Alice and Sarge were perfect. Henley is pretty good. Munchie doesn't bounce all over the car, but he is a barker. He's getting better because I have worked with him, but I think that is just his nature. Gerrr lol

I wish Zoey was better at riding in the car. Sometimes I hold her in my lap if we aren't going far and she is up and down and trying to roll the windows down, just won't be still!!! I need Huck to teach her how to ride!!!! She's good in the crate though!!

I've lost 1 1/2 lbs since we have been here, that's probably because of all the walking I've been doing.
I love MacDonald's breakfasts and there is a little mom and pop restaurant here that has great breakfasts too!! It's hard to resist !! I'm sure Huck enjoys you bringing him breakfast!!

You lost 2 pounds recently? If so, good for you. I gained a bit. My eating changes when I pet sit. I buy McDonald's breakfast too many times. I did share with Huck though. He didn't mind.
Next time I pet set for Huck, I will have to make my own breakfast.

I'm done pet sitting. Today was the first morning I could do what I wanted to do. Originally I was going to take a walk in the hills, but thought I would relax instead. I might go for a hike around 6 or 7, after it cools down. The weather has been odd. Seems like we are headed to Fall early this year. We have been in the low 90's. We are supposed to have a couple days in the 80's. Usually we are above 100 this time of year. I'm not complaining mind you hehe.

Janet, we thought we saw a baby Hummingbird yesterday in our yard. I guess a few birds can have babies in the summer. Even towards the Fall before they migrate. Do you know what type of bird it was?

Did you manage ok this week-end Mauitn? I bet Lucy had fun though. That's funny she isn't using her "play pen" for her business lol. Lucy sounds like such a sweetheart!

Sandi, you're showing off. 10,000 steps. I hope to get on my indoor bike tonight. I have missed using it. Hope the rest of your day is a good one.

It is quiet around here!
Janet I wish you could join me!!!!
Today I walked with a neighbor here on the mountain and then we went to the rec center and walked on the track there. I got my 10,000 steps early today!
That's too bad about the baby bird, sounds like something Zoey would do!!!

Hope everyone is okay!!

It's been quiet here!!

How's your foot MAUITN? How's Lucy doing? Give her a hug from me.

Are you still dog sitting, Jeanne? Hugs to all the pets you care for!! Are there fires by you?

Sandi, I would love to join you for a cup of coffee on the porch in the mountains. It sounds so peaceful. Hugs to Zoey.

Molly brought home a baby bird today. I didn't notice her pick it up. I suppose I assumed she was just smelling in the grass. It isn't the time of year I expect baby birds. The babies don't survive even though she doesn't try to eat them. She also doesn't like giving them up but I managed to shake it out and shoo Molly into the house. Other than that we had a great morning walk and Charlie even came along.

Today is cooler here in the mountains as it's partly cloudy with rain showers once in awhile! We could use the rain here, the lake is getting low!
Fall is my favorite time up here!

Zoey is doing just fine, Janet!!! Spoiled rotten! I've stopped taking her on my extra long walks since it is warm but walk her up and down our mountain road which is shaded. She seems just fine with that! (not that she has a choice)!!!!

We have been in the high 80's to mid 90's but today is to be much cooler with a high of 78 and a low tonight of 68! This may be an early Fall.

MAUITN, I know you'll take good care of Lucy despite your broken bone. Things like that make us appreciate our mobility. Lucky Lucy to have such a great play pen. LOL Thank you for your kind thoughts.

Jeanne, Whatever happened with those bushes that had the black stuff on them? How long are you dog sitting?

Sandi, Is it cool in the mountains now? How is Zoey?

We are having a rainy day today. It is needed. While we've been receiving regular rains this summer, I've noticed our yard is rather dry right now. It's getting a bit brown too and I don't just mean the dog spots.

Not sure what I'm going to be up to today. So many things I could do that I feel rather paralyzed with indecision. I think I'm just going to have to keep busy and moving and just get done what I can. Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Morning all. Thanks for all the good wishes on a quick recover. Yes, I can take the boot off and take a shower. Just have to use the crutch getting in and out of the shower so I donít put weight on that foot. It is tiring, but Iím managing. I had help all week taking Lucy out but will be on my own over the weekend. Weíll do okay. She is really missing her long walks but now has her lot finish so I can let her out there for a bit. She thinks of that as her play pen and really doesnít like to use the bathroom there. LOL Expensive play pen.

Sandi, are you are in the mountains of North Georgia? That is beautiful country. So sorry to hear of your friendís loss.

Jeanne, congrats on that new baby.

Janet, Iím praying for rest, peace, and strength for you in dealing with all the family medical issues.

Jeanne, congratulations on the new family member!! I know Huck loves having you take care of him!!

Janet, it was so sad about my friend's hubby, the doctors really couldn't figure out just what was going on. Your salad sounds really good and it's nice that you had enough to bring home.

MAUTIN I know Lucy will love her new run!!

Have a good weekend everyone!!

Jeanne, Nothing better than a baby!! Congrats to your great niece.

MAUTN, I am so sorry about your foot. I didn't even realize they'd give a boot instead of a cast for a broken bone. Can you take it off and shower? That's the worst part of a break and a cast.

Sandi, I'm sorry for your friend's loss. We must have spent the day in a similar way.

We went to a funeral of a friend's mother this morning. Since DH has celiac disease, the church lunches that follow a funeral are generally not fit for him so we went to lunch at a restaurant. I had a pecan chicken salad that was so good -- and big. I brought half of it home. Tomorrow I have no plans but should probably drive over to Dad's. This weekend is the kennel club show and I will work on Sunday for about five hours. I'm glad it's Sunday because that's the day it is less likely to rain. Have a great weekend!!

Hello everyone. I thought I should pop by. I have another week of pet sitting,, so bare with me.
Sandi, glad you made it back to the mountains safely. Give Zoey a kiss for me.

Janet, glad your folks are doing ok. I too hope your Niece will work out. That would be good for your Dad having someone there. Hope your Dogs are feeling better.

Mautin. Ouch!! Sorry about your foot and ankle. Hope it heals quickly. At least you have a walking boot. Can't wait to see the run for Lucy!

Speaking of Great Nieces. My Great Niece had a baby boy a week ago. 2 days old, and he had the cutest smile on his face. He is a doll!!

MAUTIN, so sorry to hear about your foot and ankle and hope you heal quickly.
Glad Lucy is doing so well, she is so fortunate to have such a good home with you all!

Janet, so glad to hear an update on you! We do miss you when you can't post. Glad to hear your Dad is doing well and hope the great grand niece moving in is a plus and that she won't be a burden on him. Glad your mom is adjusting and that she did enjoy some of the festivities for their 50th anniv. Sorry to hear about your pups problems, always seems to be some issues with our furbabies!e

We are in the mountains, just got here last night and it is cooler than Florida!
I'm sure Jeanne will catch us up soon on what she's been doing!!!!

Last Sunday evening, I was walking Lucy out in the back yard close to the lake and while foolishly looking up at the stars, stepped into a hole. I broke my left ankle and sprained the right ankle. For the time, I have help in walking Lucy but I mange to take her out early morning and late night. I don't go far, just outside so she can reach grass. I'm in a boot so can get around a bit. Her lot is coming along and will be finished by the end of the week. I will take pictures and post. She will love the space.

I have not been a good team member. Then I come here today and I see your posts about missing me. I feel loved and guilty at the same time.

Loved Lucy's picture!!! She found a perfect home with you! The new dog lot sounds like a plush accommodation too.

Family circumstances seem to be settling down somewhat but I don't appear to be less busy. That's okay though. My stepmother is settling in at the nursing home. We celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of my father and stepmother at the nursing home with a small party (just us siblings) on Saturday. My stepmother was pretty sleepy to start but woke up more the second hour of the two hour event so that was good. Dad has a great grandniece moving in with him this week. She has had some trouble with drugs so I hope it works out. He wants to save her and she needs a place to stay. Nice to have someone with him but scary because of her troubles. Hope it works out. DH has a new doctor that may provide some help.

Charlie always seems to have some health issue. Currently he's on a second course of an antibiotic for a hematoma on his foot. He's been on it now for three weeks I suppose so one week left but I still don't see much improvement.

Poor little Molly seems to be having a diarrhea issue. It's nearly 24 hours now so if it doesn't improve today, I'll take a stool sample in to the vet.

I know Sandi is in the mountains and MAUITN is busy with Lucy. My dogs had a recent run in with bees as well. What are you up to Jeanne?

This evening there is a picnic at my stepmother's nursing home and we've all been invited. Might include Bingo.

I don't know. I told her we missed her. She said she hoped to be back sometime. I hope she does.
