Fun In The Sun..
The weather has been really warm here. I don't mind the heat but the humidity kills me. Suka's not a real water dog. He stays away from the hose whenever possible, HOWEVER he has found he LOVES the creek nearby. We walked down the other day (wish I had my camera) and after he got over his initial fear over the water, he realized just how good it felt on a hot day and was laying all the way down in it. Then he decided to play "water fetch", and would immerse his whole face to his eyes in, blow bubbles out his nose, and grab rocks from the bottom of the shallow creek and put the rocks he "fetched" on the dry creekbed. It was so funny to watch, kept ME entertained and I so regretted not being able to take pictures of it. We will have to make a trip down there again soon, with a camera next time :)
I've been CRAZY busy. So busy, that I just realized moments ago, we missed Suka's last puppy class. I don't know how I could have forgotten..Maybe it's the screaming 2 month old I took care of all day, or his 5 yr old sister that also decided to pitch a screaming fit when her mother came because she didn't want to leave. Or maybe it's because I found out I have a BIG inspection for daycare on Thursday morning and I've been trying to prep for that. In any case, I am forgetful, but not when it comes to Suka's puppy class. I feel bad about it, but at least I've taught him pretty much everything the instructor was teaching the other pups to begin with. Suka's doing great, except we are still having housebreaking issues. He hasn't pooed in the house in a long time, but he still uses the dining room as his pee place. I've mopped in there, 409'nd in there, but he still does it. I try to keep that door shut when he's in the house, but when you have 7 in your family plus usually more it's difficult. Any advice/suggestions? Missed you, will try not to let so much time pass between this and my next post! Have a great rest of your week :)
