Shelf Dogs






This is one of those weeks when I wish I could put the dogs up on a shelf. I have a cold, so I don't particularly want to train, work, or play with the dogs. I just want to be lazy and get my rest. Peace and quiet. But when your hounds are in the habit of training, working, and playing everyday... they don't accept my request for a few days off. So I am damned if I do and damned if I don't. If I don't get my rest and take the dogs out as usual, this cold will probably last longer than it needs to. If I sit home, the 2 brats will make me miserable.



Katie used to be a brat (pictured above), but she can be pacified with some fetching in the backyard now. I would keep Katie around and put the beast and the midget on the shelf for a few days.

Jen, I hope your beast and brat let you get some rest...or you could try my vodka, garlic, onion, and ginger cure. I know, most people would rather be sick! I hope you feel better soon.

Hope you feel well soon! You should take rest over the pups. You would def. feel better faster that way.

I like the idea of dropping them off at Kate's :-). Resting is the best idea, but its hard to when Trouble 1 and Trouble 2 are crying, walking around, and getting into trouble. That would be a good sales pitch for doggie daycare. Trouble 2 is really good at being quiet in her crate, so that works, but Trouble 1 is a cry baby princess.
