Playing Again

20 Feb

I’ve been playing with the settings on my camera again.  I discovered I can take a picture and have it saved in both RAW and jpeg formats.  That’s nice!  Here’s a couple of my pictures from this beautiful weekend.

I have to say, I really hope that Llenny managed to breed both girls before he became so ill.  I know he bred Odie, and I hope she settled.  I’m not sure about Maybeline.

It would be nice to have a cria from him–a girl if that’s not too much to ask for.

Gate Hopping

14 Feb

When I brought Sky home, I had to get a couple of baby gates so he would stay on the floors that do not have carpet.  He does really well with boundaries.  I really couldn’t ask for a better puppy.  But he is still a puppy.

A couple of days later, I had to bring Bonnie’s kid, Ron, into the house.  Bless him.  He is a sweet boy, but he’s not very smart, and he would not quit trying to nurse Penny.  She would gently nudge him away, but he wouldn’t get the clue.  That’s when I would scream, “Don’t hurt him, Penny!” and quickly move him away from her.  Well, I wasn’t there overnight, and she ended up hurting his leg.  Add to that our damp, kind of warm winter, and he ended up sick with a respiratory infection.

He’s doing much better in the house.  I have been trying to find a balance between exercise to keep the lungs going and rest for the leg to heal.  He is spending a lot of time in the carpeted areas of the house because I cannot put him and the pup together.

That means I do a lot of gate hopping because one of them is constantly needing to potty.

I might need to invest in stock for Clorox wipes.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Puppy Rule #1

12 Feb

The first rule of being a puppy at Eden Hills is:  Do not mess with the Bob Cat.  Of course, Bob did not jump on the counter out of fear when the puppy appeared.  He just happened to be going that way.

Please note the tail is pulled up, so the puppy cannot possibly touch the it.  The look is contemplating how to get rid of the little mutt forever.

Bob might smack you through the puppy gate.  Or right on your tender little nose.  Even when you are just sitting there and not doing anything wrong.

It’s best to avoid the Bob Cat.

I have to say, I was pretty impressed with Snickers.  He has a laid back attitude about Sky.  Maybe it’s the attitude of experience.

In general, he ignores the pup, even if he’s being bounced on.  He just keeps going to the table to sun himself like always.

Leo.  Well, Leo is nowhere in sight.  He hasn’t come down from the upstairs since Sky showed up.  Luckily for him I took him food, water and a litter box.  He might never come down again.
