  1. Happy Dirty Dogs

    September 28, 2010 by myeye

    Today was the day.  I left the dogs with their dog door and their acre — I went to work.  They had access to the laundry room, family room and kitchen.  They hauled in roots and old pieces of wood.  Leidy must have stuck her feet in the mud around our tree.  It’s also clear they rolled in the dirt and ran the fence with the big dogs next door.  Inca and Leidy are getting along with each other, and Holmes is simply stupid-boy-dog-happy.  They agree that this was a great move from a dog’s perspective.

    I called Dr. Donny today and Leidy’s puppy x-ray is set for October 15th (day 59), as is the closing on my townhouse.  Donny’s staff is so excited that there will be Chase puppies here — he’s a big hit at the clinic (that’s the repro vet).  Meanwhile my friend Enrique has a crew at the townhouse — they took out the carpet yesterday, today they were painting, tomorrow and Thursday they will lay the new flooring upstairs.  My buyer wanted to pay the additional $800 to lay the laminate flooring.  She picked out her carpet for the stairs.  Last time we were over there I caught her caressing the washer and dryer (she has an apartment stack where she lives now).  Thursday afternoon or Friday morning, the crew will run the tile/grout cleaning machine.  Monday the appraiser will go through.  Once it’s closed, the guys will begin constructing the garage/dog pen room at the Los Lunas house.

    All’s good — just ask the sacked out bodies spread on the living room floor — I don’t think they’re watching NCIS.

  2. Little Leidy — So Pregnant

    September 28, 2010 by myeye

    Puppies are due in about three weeks.  Leidy can’t (doesn’t want to) go up and down the little step to the patio.  She’s decided the dog door/ramp are much more comfortable.  She’s no longer the leader of the pack racing to bark at the dogs next door — she brings up the rear.  She still barks as if she’s pretty fierce, but she’s a lot slower these days.

    I shot this photo while she flopped next to my computer desk.  She’s more companionable (with the human) these days, seems to take more naps.  I’ve increased her food a little because I think she’s nurturing a bunch of babies.  It’s very difficult to get photos that show how big she is.  Her girth is up to 24″.
