Blustery with a Chance of Back Pain...

Friends I am sorry for the lack of blogging. It has been 12+ hour days for myself and the Colonel. We are working hard. It was our first week full time at my newer job and then we had to head of to the old job I'm leaving to continue training my replacement. Let's just say I don't know how they're going to do without me, but hopefully it will go well.

So it had been a most busy week leaving me quite exhausted. But leaving Colonel ready for mischief. And OH BOY did he get into some! Monday there was fighting with my office mate's dog Einstein. Tuesday he ran away while I was out of the office into 4 lanes of busy traffic, luckily for him (and me!) my office mate stopped all 4 lanes and saved him. When I got back from my hour long errand and asked how he did she started crying and told me the whole thing. Poor her and (even though he was being a stinker) poor Colonel Mustard!! That was a rough day. The rest of the week it there were plenty of little fights with Einstein, Colonel just doesn't realize how much bigger he is to 7lb. Einstein, and loads of trying to eat things out of the office recycling bin.

I think I just need to keep working with him on socialization. And not playing rough. Oh and not running away into 4 lanes of traffic. Joe and I just keep working with him. He's a smart pup, he just needs more training. And now he's hit the 8 month old mark and is rabies free! Yay! And his poop is clear of all bacteria and his cough is all gone. He seems to be doing pretty great now that he has found his forever home. And he hit is ideal weight group. He is at 24.7lbs. What a big lil guy huh?!

Tomorrow we are going to Strut Your Mutt with our friends from My Life With Dogs. Kari is bringing Baily and we are bringing the Colonel. Hopefully he does well around all those other pups! I'll keep you posted! Also check out Kari's blog about the Pedigree amazing donation plan. Here's the deal:

Once you post, let Life With Dogs know so your can be part of the final tally!

So jump on board people! Colonel Mustard is having a playdate with Baily right now, they're so cute. And having so much fun! Yay!

Did y'all just watch the Michigan State game against Notre Dame-my Spartans just whooped some but with the gutsiest play of overtime history ever!! That'll be in highlight reels all week! Go green! Go white!!

Now I'm off to rest my ailing back (working all the long hours are taking its toll on me hardcore) and snuggle with my honeys while we watch The Journey starring Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner (one of my all time fave movies ever). What a great night! :D

Have a great night, I'm off. TTFN as Tigger would say. :D
