The Bixby Diaries
8.12: What an adventure. Woke up in the morning curled up with my brothers and sisters – some are half-siblings, but we don’t differentiate in the litter. By that night, I was curled up in the arms of my person after a long day of everything being new.
8.13: Discovered my bark at 6:15 am. My person and her strange furry companions don’t seem as excited as I am. Conquered working in an office. Work is boring. Went for my weigh-in, I’m a svelte 22.2 lbs. Napped.
8.14: Mastered the scary, open back stairs at 6 am. On the first try. I’m a rock star. Or, so my person says. Napped.
8.15: Spent the day trying to win over the strange, furry companions. Learn they are called cats. They look soft, but they have sharp feet. Kinda cranky, too. Napped.
8.16: Making progress with cats. Being a perfect gentleman…well at least I try. Napped.
8.17: Rough day. Spent it being yelled at and put in time out. Sigh. Being a puppy is hard. But, got a cat to play untie-the-bow with me. So day wasn’t a total bust. Also, napped.
8.18: Rockin’ the potty training. Bark at door, go outside and potty. My person learned very quickly. Now who is the rock star? Oh, yeah, and I napped.
8.19: Played in the park. Filled with great smells. Made my weekly weigh in. 24.4 lbs of muscle, baby! Been a long week filled with lots of adventures. Nap time.
See you next week! – Bixby
New puppy or not, gotta eat. Chuck roasts were on sale this week, so I bought a five pound one, cut in half and marinated one half and froze the other. I threw the corn in the slow-cooker during the last 15 minutes an it was perfectly steamed.
