Teddy Bear Room AKA The Doggy Corral

all doggies 001 (1280x745)all doggies 004 (1280x853)I never thought the Teddy Bear Room would turn into the Doggy Corral. But it really worked while my son unpacked his car. One place for all the dogs. No escaping the house. Perfect.

I had doors like that at the other house, and it really helps to keep everyone in one place.  All the dogs get along fine. I’m getting potty breaks down to a science. The three small ones and one corgi on leash go out at a time. And then the last corgi with any of the little dogs that haven’t done all their business.

I was taking two dogs out on a leash at a time. But the 2 corgis got into a fight with each other over the neighbor’s dog being out on the other side of the fence. And I had a terrible time trying to break them up, so I figured, one corgi at a time. More manageable. My dogs ignore the other dog. And Mishka did too. 🙂

Okay, off to take the corgis out next. Trying not to disturb my son’s sleep this morning, though I warned him, I might not be successful. 🙂

We’re under tornado warnings, 26 mph winds, thunderstorms, and electric has gone out once. Best wishes to everyone in the affected areas and hope your holidays have been fun.

We have to brave the storms to do the closing on the house. 🙁 Have a great Sunday!

Daughter and Son-in-Law got in at 1:30 this morning, but my puppies got me up early as usual. And the dogs are all barking at each other. They want to play with the other dogs, but since I don’t have a fenced-in yard, I can’t  handle all 4 of them at once. 🙂

So periodically, there are bouts of barking while I try to keep mine from barking. It’s mostly Rilo. He wants out. He was so cute last night. My puppies were keeping him from seeing him, and when they finally went to my daughter, he was so happy to greet me.  But after the initial barking, they greeted each other and were fine. I tried to take pictures, but I think most of them were blurs of dogs.

Even more fun than greeting the other dogs, which became old hat really quick was all the stuff they brought with them. Tanner thought wearing the measuring cup for Rilo and Luna’s food was the best fun.

Vacuuming Puppy Whiskers And Brainstorming Story Ideas

I had a Labrador retriever who loved when I wanded her with the vacuum cleaner hose, lifting off some of her shedding hair. But then I had a standard poodle, same time, only she was a little puppy, and she was terrified of the vacuum, all sixteen of her years as she grew old. She didn’t bark, and I tried to convince her it wouldn’t hurt her, but she was never convinced. She would lie and watch me mow the yard with the big tractor mower though, and that was okay.

So both Max and Tanner follow me around while I’m vacuuming. They have no problem with it, which is really great.

Today it’s a foggy, misty, rainy vampire day. The pest control guy is coming. I’m vacuuming up the millions of pieces of grass and leaves the dogs keep bringing in. And Tanner got too close to the vacuum wand as I lifted it to move, and I sucked up his whiskers. Split second. Surprise on both our parts. LOL

Luckily, he was fine with it and we haven’t suffered any trauma and he’s still not afraid of the vacuum. I don’t suggest doing that though.

And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Males all Tuckered Out

Males all Tuckered Out

Notice who’s got the bone? Max and Tanner used this as home base. It’s their Place Training spot. So they’d go there whenever things got too wild between the corgis as they were playing. They felt safe. 🙂 <3

I was brainstorming with beta readers for She-Wolf. Sometimes my limited mind can’t see unlimited possibilities. I have the general story idea, have to when I pitch the book and sell it. But then there are the details. Why, why, why???

And so, I’m staring at a blank page on my monitor that says Chapter 1, trying to figure out why this and that and thus.

Then I get smart, and sometimes even just asking the questions “out loud” to someone else, ideas will start to come to me and they haven’t even responded yet. I’m thinking that this is the way I want to go. But…and then I propose a new question on top of that. Then they have some excellent ideas I hadn’t considered, and I’m thinking some more of how I want to begin the story, based on the brainstorming tips.

And, I’ve got bear orders stacking up. I’m making 4 Matheson clan bears, 1 Morrison clan bear, 1 MacGregor clan bear, 1 dark purple bear, 1 purple dragon bear. I cut nearly all of them out last night, and then realized I was missing one bear. I still need to cut out all the sashes and bonnets for the clan bears, but this morning I found the clan fabrics in my stash, so they’re all ready for cutting. But then, the bug guy is coming, so I waned to vacuum. And so begins my story of vacuuming puppy whiskers.

I’m off to work on the story.

Hope you have a great day, no matter what the weather! It’s supposed to be 70 here today, but high of 40 the rest of the week. Oh, and in the cold, I took Max for group training. No one else showed up, so we had individual training again. We were so cold, we only did it for half hour instead of an hour. I had Max there 20 mins early and we practiced before that, so he and I still nearly had an hour.

And now, it’s time to get to work! 🙂

Puppy Training–Socialization–The Stairs

The whole wolf pack–miniature size, and you know they originated from wolves, right? And my daughter as we tried to talk Tanner into walking the stairs. And the rest of the pack, showing him the way. The video wouldn’t upload. Will try later.

And after that, we needed a good dose of chocolate. 🙂 <3

The Boy’s Night Out. Now Rilo and Max are asleep, and Tanner’s  tackling that big bone.

And I’m back to edits!

Have a super almost gone Sunday!

Picture Bloopers with Pets

Don’t you love bloopers? I thought it would be fun to show a couple of the Christmas pictures that didn’t turn out and a couple that did.

To better. In the shot with the corgis, I think I had my puppies in the bedroom, which was why both were looking that way and not at the camera. Oh, well, at least they weren’t blurs. 🙂 <3

Christmas, Luna and Tanner 024 (640x427)Christmas, Luna and Tanner 036 (640x427) (2)

And there you have it!  Lots of bloopers and a few nice shots. I might have to include some of this stuff in a story. I actually have a lot of “real” life stuff in my stories, no matter how imaginary they may be.

So, are you doing anything fun today? I’ve been awake since 3, up since 4, so doing anything exciting beyond writing this blog just wears me out thinking about it. 🙂 The audiobook for Call of the Cougar came back last night, so I might start proofing it today.

What about you? Have any plans? Eat special dishes? Black eyed peas? I’m having stuffed bell peppers since I bought them for when my daughter and SIL were here and we didn’t eat them. So that’s on the menu. 🙂

Happy New Year’s!!!
