I think I told you that Hubby brought home a crazy puppy to foster.
Well, he’s not crazy, he’s just being his breed. But his breed is crazy – unless there is work to be done. But if there isn’t a wayward flock spread out over hill and dale, dogs like this go mad.
We don’t have a flock.
Instead, I have a bonkers dog that I try to entertain while I’m doing all the other things on my list – and trying to potty train him at the same time.
Potty training is a whole different story – the concept evades him. When we go outside and he does his duty, I praise him… and I swear he looks at me and says, “Wha? All I did was pee.”
Anyway, today I had to get the house all gussied up because we have AirBnB guests this weekend. (The last guest visit went very well.) So, I put Little CrayCray in my office with a few of Scoutypant’s stuffed animals….
WHEN I RETURNED…
After about only an hour, I returned to do some potty training – I found these three piles.
THE THING IS, HE IS VERY, VERY CUTE…
The thing is, even though we had to get him a bark collar because, well, he barks all. the . time… and even though he can no longer be in the back yard because he cut a track in the lawn from running back and forth along the fenceline – trying to herd the horses – which was after Hubby put up the electric fence to keep him from lofting it… and the accidents, chewed things and never ever ever ending energy…
Still, he is very cute. Here he is in my lap in my chair at my desk.
MUSHER’S SECRET – for his cracked paws.
Another part of him is that he’s a redhead. With that comes sunburns and split paws. Since he runs constantly, he wears his feet raw. Hubby and I were at wits end on what to do for his horrible split pads (I used all of my horse remedies)… and then he came upon MUSHER’S SECRET.
So, I’m passing this on to anyone who has a dog who suffers from splitting pads. It isn’t expensive, it works, and you can get it many places on the internet.
HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY! – I will let you know how the 2nd AirBnB foray goes this weekend!
