All About The Stinky Puppies Day !

What did I do today?  This morning the usual up and get at it with the Aussies, some "Crabby Cabbie" stuff, strip the bed to wash the bedding and hang out (*sigh* bed still needs made up now I have thought about it), and a couple downtown Wiarton errands.

What did I do this afternoon? well that was a little more exciting.

Since we had the new decking put on we had also lost our outdoor kennel run.  We thought this would be all put back together, however we are still waiting for the Contractor to come back to still do some "fixes".  Unfortunately we have now been waiting 2 weeks, and Rob had also paid him in Full.  Does this story sound familiar to anyone else out there?

We have been using the smaller outdoor kennel run in the meantime for the Everything 8 puppies.  Regardless of how many times I hose it down to clean up after them, they still manage to walk through their "messes".  I am certain little piggies are cleaner then these little puppies.  Phewie !!!

I can not send puppies off to their Forever Homes this upcoming weekend smelling unbearable, so today was a "All About the Stinky Puppies Day"

My new "take to the Vet" puppy helper, Shea-lyn, and her Mother came over to give me a hand with the Everything 8 litter.  Rob had filled up the kiddie pool this morning for the water to warm up in the Sun.  I got a rinse pail all ready on the side lines.

The helpers arrived and we got to it ....

Each puppy was very good and receptive to being in the "pool" with Shea-lyn and myself.  Baby shampoo with a good rub a dub dub.  Then a little bit of towel drying.  Someone was covering himself up without a problem afterwards.

After they got a towel dry they had themselves some Fun in the Sun.  However before the towel dry they had each had a final rinse in the scrub pail.

We will be heading down to the Vets this Friday morning.  Oliver is the largest puppy of the Everything 8 Litter.

This is Oliver.  I will be posting these photos to The "Checkerboard Aussies'" Facebook page asking everyone to make an educated guess on how much they think Oliver will weigh in at this Friday.  Any guesses yourself?  Trust me after holding him a bit he really is quite the bruiser.

I was very thankful for the extra hands as I would never as managed as well by bathing all these little porkers myself.  Help is something I always appreciate.

This afternoon I got the laundry off the line, had a cup of coffee, put my feet up and had myself a week bit of a rest.  Rob got home about 6 pm.  I did another downtown errand then we had our Dinner finally about 7 pm.

I have been feeling a wee bit overwhelmed again.  Not only is month end coming up for the "Crabby Cabbie", it is also 2nd Quarter for the Year, 5 puppies will have their Forever Humans picking them up this weekend, and we have our friends coming for the weekend to visit (this I am looking forward to if nothing else), and Rob will have a very busy weekend ahead of him.  Of course there is also the regular every day stuff, and then the other stuff I still haven't gotten too, like weeding my flower beds.  Oh man !!!  breathe, breathe, breathe .... oh crap I forgot already I am suppose to be rinsing my nose with a Saline solution 2 x a day.  I am a train wreck waiting to happen !!!

I best get going as there is that matter of my bed still needing made, something I NEED done before fall into it later, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. Your puppies are so darn cute! Washing 8 gives a whole new meaning to bath time. I too have been up to my eyeballs with stuff to do that can't wait lately. Here's to a quite weekend for us both! I hope, ha

  2. You have had so much company Cindy! Company is good, but it tires us out. Don't forget we have that disgusting old "friend" we carry on our backs. Get some rest!

  3. OH MY I want a puppy! They are adorable :)

    1. There are still 3 sweeties available Natalie.

  4. I'm glad you got some help! This is definitely not a job for one :)


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
