Yeah, we're still alive and kicking, its just been an extremely hectic week, if you follow my personal blog (I Should Be Studying) you know, that my schedule has been crammed with our church's annual camp meeting, work, school and keeping Texas from biting our few hundred guest traipsing around our yard.
For my new followers here's the back story on Texas (Reactivity and How We Got Texas)
It wasn't as much of a job as I'd imagined (read:stressed about) it would be, but there were several times I did have to give out some strong warnings, to people NOT.TOO.APPROACH. Though he did latch onto a surprise house guests shoe, no harm was done, and we were able to reintroduce them properly and haven't had any issues since. Texas is a dog, you can't "make friends with" and have to completely pretend he doesn't exists. Thankfully Laura, was not intimidated by Texas's initial greeting, and complied to the rules PERFECTLY. By the next morning Texas hopped on the couch (where she was sleeping) and woke her as only a dachshund can. Yep with lots of kisses. That pretty much lets me know he's as comfortable as he can get, he continued to demonstrate that over the weekend, and installed himself in her lap whenever possible.
Now I do have to warn you all, now that school is starting to move into 2nd gear, posting will be very sporadic! As much as I'd love to convince myself I can multitask...sometimes its not possible! That and their won't be too many dog photos (gasp!!) as my camera will be other wise engaged.
