Doing Well

As of May 2, we've had Pearl a whole year. She's doing really well, too. Here lately even more of her personality has been coming through. She's so funny! Last night, she was on the sofa digging at a sample packet of dog food. The packet was sealed and inside another plastic bag, but she sniffed it out. She's also been grabbing the stuffed squirrel and playing with it and carrying it around. Until Boggie comes over and takes it from her, that is. He always wants what she has.

Keeping them locked up in the bathroom during the day has been working rather well. There has been some chewing on the molding, but that can be replaced. No messes and no other destructive behaviour. Boogie doesn't want to go up the stairs in the morning after the second walk, but treats help. He drags on the leash, but being on the leash, you can drag him up the stairs. Once he gets started on the stairs he's better about coming on up.

Boogie's taking a snooze after being released from his incarceration (kennel). They've been boarded a lot over the last couple of weeks due to trips to Jamestown (see other blog and blog). They are really lovey when we're all home again. Pearl got her teeth cleaned during the last trip to the kennel. The vet stated she really needed it because her gums were looking pretty bad. Hopefully the water additive we're using will help keep her pearlie whites pearlie white.
