More shameless promotion!
Yep, that’s my mail for today! I will be sending out books to those who wanted them tomorrow other than that *I* now (finally) have every single paperback in the OF WAR and Sister Christian series to call my very own. It’s a pisser when an author doesn’t have copies of their own books on their bookshelf…isn’t it? LOL So, Cai willing, I’ll take all of the ordered books to the Post Office tomorrow.
Speaking of Cai….yesterday I awoke to poop…a nice pudding-like puddle…on the floor in hubby’s studio. This AFTER letting him out at 3:30 and 5:30 am. THEN, I took him to work and he did the same thing on the rug in my office AFTER I walked him at least 5 times. Yes, Cai loves to go for walks. Every day this week, he’s gotten me up from my desk every hour ON the hour to take him for a walk around the building. I try to explain to him that I don’t get PAID to take him for a walk but he doesn’t listen. The good news there is, this morning, I put on a pair of slacks that usually fit me and today I had to keep pulling them up to keep them from sliding off my hips. Yes, Cai is great for exercise and raising the metabolism. He loves to play ball and go for walks.
Last night I couldn’t get him OFF the bed even though Charlie was upset and I had the best night’s sleep since hubby’s been away. I think it must just be feeling of the weight on the other side of the bed and having a large warm body snuggled to my hip that helps me sleep and feel as though I’m not ‘alone’ and ‘vulnerable’. He got me up at 5:30 this morning to let him out then again at 6:15 at which time I just left him out there until after I’d gone back to bed, snoozed a bit, got up, had a shower, and put on some coffee.
This morning…no poop! Wunderbar! Not at home and not in the office. AND…I’m so grateful for this next part…my cats are starting to forgive me for bringing a dog into the house. Mongo finally came out of the basement yesterday for the first time since Friday. Missy let herself be seen this morning but didn’t come in the house. Charlie is leading the pack although he’s still unhappy. Both Charlie and Mongo spent the night under my bed last night. I think that, while they’re not ‘warming up’ to the idea, they are coming to the realization that it’s a fact of life. Cai is here to stay and they have to get used to that fact. I just hope they do it before the first snowfall.🙂
Tomorrow night will be different because hubby will be home until early Tuesday morning! I took Friday off to enjoy my time with him. Hopefully Cai understands when hubby reclaims his side of the bed. But, TMI coming, he’s not a fan of when hubby and I make love. I think the noises disturb him. LOL
Next week I’ll start tapering him off as far as coming to work with me goes. But he’s very good at work. He loves everyone. However, I’ve noticed that when it’s just me and Linda (woman who works in the same building with me) he’s as calm as a cat. Get a single male in the mix and he’s so hyper I want to feed him Ritalin. Alone with me during the week…same thing…cool as a cucumber. He has his moments, he loves to play fetch–I brought one of his balls into the office and we play catch a lot of the time– and he loves to play with the hose when I water the plants but other than that….nada. He’s still. He’s quiet. A true love bug. Then when any male enters the mix and he’s all jumpy and slobbery. And, he thinks he’s a lap dog. He really does. He loves hugs! Oh he adores them! He’s always trying to sit on my lap. Love him but a 60-80lb dog is not a lap dog. My lap is just not that big.😛
However, he is one SMART DOG! The other day I wrapped up his flea/tick pill in some turkey and he ate it without a problem (some have suggested the flea/tick pill cause him to have diarrhea) and yesterday I did the same with his heartworm pill. Nothing doing! I even held his jaws closed before sliding the turkey wrapped pill as far down his throat as I could. He chewed. He swallowed. I let go. He spit out the pill! LOL I was shocked. Amazed and totally dumbfounded. Maybe next time I’ll try roast beef and see how that goes.
