Mondays are Ruff

10 Sep

The dog has had a hard to adjusting to me going back to work.


When I get home, he gets really mouthy and demanding.

Then he gets the zoomies and races all around the yard.

When we go in, he just wants me to play ball and tug-of-war and annoys the cats.  I do play with him, but he doesn’t seem to get how exhausted I am and how I can’t just leave goats and gardening until later.  This means that he gets a bit naughty.  Hard to believe, I know.

“Why don’t you love me anymore?”

Last week, I came home to find all of my big strawberry plants had been ripped off the deck table and strewn around the yard.  I was not happy.  I did get them repotted, and now they are in the house for their protection.

Except Rocky isn’t much better.  I still have my little strawberries in the tower on the front porch to keep Rocky from playing in the dirt.

Most of them are doing well, but I’m waiting for them to fill the dirt a bit better before bringing them back into the house.

I swear. These two.


It’s no wonder we can’t have nice things around here.

    Our darling pets are every bit like our precious children. I catch myself fussing whenever the cats are bugging me for more food, 5 minutes after feeding them. I go and look and there sits the food with all the liquid sucked dry. They refuse to eat the remainIng food. Rocky kind of has a mischievous glint in his eyes! Sky …he is so sweet and so loving. I never fuss at our collie. She is close to being perfect. Enjoy what’s left of your day. It is broiling hot here.

    It’s really tough when our furbabies are left alone for long periods of time. My daughter’s service dog goes with her most of the time, and he knows he’s supposed to be with her. Once in a while he has to stay home with me, and then he will sit by the front door and look out the window until she comes home. He’s such a sweet, faithful old guy. He’s now 13.
