Scout: I Am NOT A Pillow

Not sure what is going on here. Poor Scout.

Time Flies

Not sure how I’m feeling about the 5-month milestone. She’s such a sweetie and growing so fast. I’m a little wistful on how quickly it has flown by.

Walking today, in her harness, I could not get over how big she was and how much she now looks like the Great Dane she’s going to be.  Sunday I walked both dogs at the same time and she did great. Scout was a little crazed, but we hadn’t had a walk in almost a week due to ice and snow.

I’ll do that once a week to get them used to it, but I have really been enjoying my alone time with each pup on our walks. And two walks for me is never a bad thing…I mean more cookies, right?

We have now reached the “can’t see the Panda” when she sits on him. I don’t know what she weighs, I’m guessing about 60 lbs – I’ll try to get to the vet and weigh this week.


Welcome Willow

Willodene Jolene has landed.

She’s about 6-7 months old, which completely goes against my “oldest/longest kitty in the shelter” rule. After fostering a mama (Missy) and her five 1-day old kittens (Jake!) I swore off kittens forever.

But this girl picked me, so who am I to refuse? Continue reading

Trixie Diaries: 15 Weeks And Needing Lots Of Sleep

I may have more formal photos later this week, but for now, going with crazy, sleeping puppy.

It takes a lot of energy to grow a puppy to Great Dane size, so there is a lot of sleeping going on…and poor Scout is her favorite pillow.

Every time I come into the living room, she’s found a different way to sleep on her sister.

Occasionally she uses a real pillow, but still needs Scout close by. She’s very attached to Scout and I’m actually working on giving her some more confidence separate from Scout. Starting with her vet visit and shopping excursions, where she can ride in the basket and get lots of attention from strangers.

She does enjoy her walks around the block with just me. Scout enjoys her much longer walk alone with me, too. Gives her a chance to have one-on-one attention.

I feel like I owe you guys some menus…but I am just not feeling the cooking vibe right now. I suppose after weeks of cooking working my way through the holidays, I’ve lost all my creativity. But I’ll try to do better in the coming weeks.

Until then…
