How could she say such a thing? Spoiled? I'm so hurt!
It's been one of those weeks when I could really use an extra pair of hands for each dog. I haven't felt well and while all of the dogs are good about that sort of thing, Brut's patience level are starting to plummet. He's starting to get a bit touchy about not having his Mommy and me time. Like the boy needs a reason to start something. :) Spoiled brat!
This winter has pretty much sucked, unless we figure out a way to dog sled on ice. Two winters in row now with hardly any snow. Our new sled has been in the living room for 2 months, getting it ready, haven't been able to try it out except to walk it back out to the shed.
On the plus side, the warmer temps have kept me more outdoors than normal, working on leash walking with the Back Dogs. Some of you may remember I started working with Chance and then Blaze this past year and without being able to sled, I've decided to tackle Brut, Fiona and Zappa with leash walking. Nothing keeps my non-pulling tactics sharp like an icy road. :)
And if this winter hasn't been crappy enough, the skunks are out in full swing, in FEBRUARY!! Considering we are lucky if spring gets rolling by May in these parts, we usually don't have to worry about these little stinkers until June or so. It is one of those, if it isn't one thing, it's another type deals. The dogs have been going bananas as the little bugger who lives under my neighbor's shed taunts them just past the fence, not to mention the way the little stink bombs are announcing their presence all over the neighborhood. I'd better stock up on lots of vinegar. :( Lord help me it's going to be a long spring... And summer... And fall...
