I laugh to myself many times – as I go upstairs to get dressed, 7 dogs trail behind. Finn and Sir Charles are in the kennel because Finn can become excited with too much stimulation that easily translates to aggression. I thought you might be interested in how I avoid food arguments. Every dog brings their own food and I put their allotted amount in an ice cream pail. Even Telly and Faye’s food goes in the pail and I mix it all up together. Then I measure everyone’s amount into their own dish so that they are all eating the same food and all food arguments are solved. I do stand watch while everyone eats and it’s not a perfect feeding plan but it’s like going to Grandmas house. Nobody will starve, it might not be exactly the way they eat or the amount they eat at home but it’s the best I can do under the circumstances.
And here’s Libby who barks at any little thing and sets everybody off – either running out the dog door or barking themselves. She is very adventurous but doesn’t use the dog door and I’m not going to teach her. The first time she discovers she can fit through the pickets, I will refuse to keep her ever again,sad to say. I simply couldn’t stand the worry and stress of trying to keep track of her.
Hmmm…what should I do today?
