My poor "Crabby Cabbie" had been called out at 1:30 am, with returning back home and unable to get to sleep until 5:00 am. I most certainly know what that feels like; it not being the greatest feeling when you are so tired. When I got up just before six, I was as quiet as I possibly could be .... good thing he is not in the Dog House, as it might not have been so quiet? LOL
Speaking of not being too quiet lately, our Bandit has been quite the whiner lately. Missy Mercedes is still in heat and residing in the basement, so this is the problem of poor Bandit's anxiety I am sure .... the "heat" cycle, not the residing in the basement part.
Rob finally arose, with us once again having to head downtown for a couple of errands again today. Connor will be turning 5 years old (already) on the 21st of June, so a gift was purchased for him, a trip into our bank, a drop around to our mechanics, and into the Foodland Store to pickup a few more plants, as they had just received a new shipment in today.
I was rather disappointed as I had forgotten all about planting Zucchinni until after I had spoken on the phone with my sister, Donna, last night. Darn, darn, triple darn it all the store only had one pot with 2 plants in it !!! I have Rob on a mission when he is around and about with his "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle to check out a couple of places for me in his travels to see if he can get a couple more.
I really should try to get another nice photo of Buddy to post, as I have been so proud of him the past few days. Sunday was the very first day when before taking him out, on command, he sat at the back door, sat and stayed until I told him "okay" (this all being done on a lead of course). Baby steps with some progress being made, but pretty good considering he only came to us on Mother's Day.
It is a lot of work training a dog. You must be consistent and more then anything patient. "Patience is a Virtue" in all things. LOL, I read an article in the Kitchener-Waterloo Record Newspaper once, that if people were as consistent with their children as they were in training there pets, it would be a lot different World out there ..... I tend to agree there is a lot of truth behind that statement.
By the time lunchtime rolled around the migraine I had been trying to ignore was being relentless, so I buckled and took my meds. Two o'clock rolled around with the meds not even making a "dent", my vision turning blurry with me seeing double ... and really now, there are just some things a person does not want to see two of, at the best of time .... sorry honey, that was really not directed your way !
Feeling very ill from the migraine by this time, I took myself off to bed before my "Crabby Cabbie" had even taking his leave for the day. I actually slept it off after 1 1/2 hour of sleep ! Wow, something I don't do in the daytime very often, but I am ever glad it worked. I never got done even a bit of what I wanted to do today, dang, dang, triple dang, but I did get rid of that dang migraine, so that was something....
Holy windy and cold out there now ... I best be getting my butt into gear by getting the "pack" in and out, along with the "Spectacular Six" all settled in, as we all have a big day tomorrow, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
