Hi there Journal & Friends,
I'm working on my attitude, really I am. :-}
So... here are my Before n After Tudes:
Before: Whine whine whine... she just has so much energy, it's hard to keep her busy and out of trouble, cuz she's not totally potty trained yet.
After: I'm thankful she is about 75% potty trained, so I can let her run around a bit, under supervision.
And cracking the patio door open an inch,
with Vevie outside and Joey inside, kept Joey occupied
for almost 5 whole minutes, trying to reach Vevie. :-D
I let Vevie in... and she instantly got tackled. But she
likes Joey now, and keeps coming back for more.
Vevie is backed into the corner under my desk.
Can I come out now... is it gone??
Time for a new diversion... I stole Vevie's EggToy,
and hid some of Joey's lunch kibble inside.
Hey... what's this??
Oh I see... hit it with my paw...
Aha! A treat!
Hey... that's MY toy, grumbled Vevie.
All empty... now what are we gonna do, huh? huh?
PS: Thanks for all the great ideas, suggestions and concerns. To answer a couple of the comments... walking your dog is a great idea, if you can walk. Wish I could. But right now I am still in the powerchair 90% of the day. I am working on building leg muscle as pain levels permit. I'm hoping that getting lighter will put less pressure on my knees, and hence less pain. I have no cushion left in there... it's bone on bone, crunching merrily along with each step! And yes, I checked into knee replacement surgery. I was told I was not a good surgical candidate, due to the weight, and they wouldn't do it. So... another reason to get it off, yes?
The Escapades of Joey.....
