Saturday Dog Blogging

Originally uploaded by KenCalvino
Things got pushed off a day because of spotty internet connections here yesterday - and the weather wasn't even that bad!

Gertie had a pretty good week this last week. More and more she's getting into the routine of things. I've been working on keeping her in bed until 6:30 in the morning. Even if we have to get up so she can go out, it's right back to bed - no breakfast, no playtime. Thankfully she's getting much better.

We did have a bit of a scare mid-week when she took a free tea sample that I had received in the mail. It had fallen off the table and I didn't realize it until it was too late. It was an herbal tea - thank goodness. Caffeine can kill a dog quickly. I was in the kitchen making breakfast and when I found her she was finishing the wrapper that the tea bag had come in. Gertie was one sick puppy the following morning. Her tummy wailed in protest. About 4 in the afternoon everything passed, if you know what I mean, and she was back to her old self - a little wiser, I hope.

Since the weather was a bit better the last couple of days I thought we'd go outside and take some shots of her running around the yard - which is exactly what she did. It's tough trying to photograph a moving object! I thought this picture turned out the best. The grass was just mowed and you can see how far it comes up on her legs. We've got another two weeks before the lawn guy comes again. Gertie will not be a happy camper at all by then!
