So sorry to be MIA last week! I was snapping pictures and thinking about the blog, but never made time to sit and blog.
I had that week were you have to get the to-do list done.
Here’s a wrap-up of what Sadie has been doing the last week.
In the background is Marcus at the driving range in Forest Park. While Marcus hits golf balls, Sadie and I walked around the park. She loves it!
The weather has been chart topping hot & humid. I pack water for Sadie because our walks have been about an hour-long. Sadie is not a fan of the travel water dish. She doesn’t like sticking her head into the floppy bowl.
So, I went out and bought this travel bowl. Sadie likes it much better. Can you say spoiled?!? 🙂
I am still in the search for the perfect chew. Sadie tried a compressed rawhide bone and a hard, stuffed bone.
The compressed rawhide was nothing special. The downside was the mess it left on the carpet.
The stuffed bone is a keeper! Sadie has been playing with it for the entire week. She spends time licking the center and chewing the hard bone. And, no mess! It is great inside and outside!!
I also bought her bubbles. Daisy used to love chasing bubbles.
Sadie eventually caught on, but I think the weather was so hot she wasn’t really interested in chase. I’ll have to try again later when the heat breaks.
On the to-do list, was shopping for the cottage. Sadie and I are going to the cottage for 2 1/2 weeks! Yippy!
Life Jacket – Check!
I know Sadie will love the water and I’m sure swimming will come naturally to her. But, a life jacket can come in handy when you least expect it. We were thankful for Daisy’s jacket on more than one occasion!
Collar Night Light – Check!
We like to sit by the fire pit at night. And, it gets crazy dark up north. I want to be able to see Sadie and know where she is. I stumbled upon this and knew it would be great! It attached easily to her collar and the LED lights shine very brightly. Great for a puppy learning (still learning) come & stay!
Funny Moment: Marcus caught Sadie trying to jump onto the counter to get at a cheese platter I left out.
She accidentally opened the cabinet on the descent down.
On that note, here is my cottage reading material.
Puppy school was good, but I need to really practice and follow thru with Sadie’s training. We have some skills to get better at and some bad behaviors to stop before they become a problem.
Cottage country has questionable internet access. I have plans to buy a mobile hot spot, but I’m not sure if the cells towers will cooperate. We may be out of touch until July.
Just in case… Happy 4th of July!
