BUsy Busyness

Happy Post-Memorial Day! I took the day to collect my wits from our crazy week last week, my poor pups are feeling extremely neglected between my work schedule and a weeklong church event. So in an attempt to appease my guilty conscious, I spent all day with them and on impulse decided to purchase one of those kiddie pools from Wal-Mart. To say my dogs were spoiled could very well be an understatement.

Since school let out, Pompei’s exposures outings have gone down significantly due to my lack of restraint. I’m the world’s worst impulse buyer, and right now I have to save every penny possible so I can afford to get one of these babies…. So I limit MY shopping exposure to purchasable items, to only several times a week.
{Dog Friendly HOnda Element - I love that its one color, ... not too keen on the two tone versions of this vehicle}
{Realistically, this is more likely the car I will end up buying. Whenever my ships come int or what have you...}

He did get to visit with some of the other raisers in my group, when they took him to a baseball game with them. Our monthly puppy meeting and my friends graduation were scheduled on the same day, so my leader offered to take him with them. So he went and had a great time. He did have one little accident but that was well.. things happen! :-) Charlottes raiser handled him while he was there, and said both dogs did really well with each other and didn't even try to play too much! (insert surprised face)
Charlotte - 9 month old Black Lab 
13 month old - Mensa - Standard Poodle

I was glad for him to get out with someone else, as its very important that he learn how to take commands from someone else.

Upcoming Events in Pompeii's Life: 

  • Shopping with Mom - Today :)
  • He's headed in for the big "Snip-SNip" this Thursday so paws and tails...? cross for him!
  • Next week, we're meeting with our regional advisor, I haven't seen her in over a at a year and half, so I'm looking forward to see them again!  
  • Pompei will also being spending sometime with another raiser while we go out of town later on this month! 
We're going to keep him hopping!

Erin and company

I can just imagine Jack listening to someone else! Although he might be good at it, since he rarely listens to me! :)

He's going to be a busy little dude! Let us know how he does at the vet's office so we can uncross our paws!
