Hey There Kay!!
My B-day is Monday the 8th!!
It was 93° today!! And I went out to pick up prescriptions and do a little grocery shopping!! It sure doesn't look like $250 worth of stuff!! I think the most exciting thing I bought was a new flavor of Temptations cat treats (crab and tuna)!! Button loves them!!
Harris-Teeter has pre-cooked ribs that are really nice and meaty!! Sometimes they go on sale and I stock up on them!! The only thing is their sauce isn't very good!! So I scrape most of the sauce off, re-coat them with better sauce and reheat them in the oven!!
Have a nice day!!

Hello!
Whew, busy 3 day weekend. Busy enough with dogs that they are both quite mellow today even! I'm glad as I wasn't up for a walk this morning. Got busy doing lots of chores and that was more than enough. I usually walk to a park that is 1.25 miles from the house, then 4 laps around the park is 1.25 miles, so try to do at least 4 laps, generally shoot for 8, then back home. Also some different streets in the neighborhood just so they can sniff some new sniffs. I enjoy dog parks where I can let them RUN though, while I do laps that way too. I wish we had like 5 acres or so that I could let them run and I could do daily fence checks and walks. Sidewalks here have too many 'slopes' for driveways so it's hard to walk sometimes if my knees are in the mood to hate me and the streets always have cars parked so not like you can just cruise the gutter either for any real length of time. I miss country life sometimes! Maus and Elfi had a great time all weekend, and everyone was so impressed with Maus and how she made sure no one ganged up on Elfi. Oh, I did cry a little, someone had a 4mos old Rottie baby and well, sniffle...Maus wouldn't let me pet her much though hehe. She's a big jealous baby but has learned cats and Elfi aren't competition cuz I don't deal with that nonsense. She and Elfi now play a lot of tug-o-war, it's hilarious as Elfi makes the most amazing noises and sounds like a vicious bear! Well, need to finish some chores then my neighbor is coming over and we're going to watch a movie or a show, depends on what Netflix list we have to get through. Hugs and hope you aren't melting over there!

How's it going with Tyler? I know, I know, I sound like a meanie! Of course you can talk to him when you let him out of the crate. Just talk to him in a normal voice if that's what you normally do. The key is for him to not think of the crate as anything but a normal every day occurrence. Did I say "normal" enough?

I forgot to ask, does he usually get antsy before 5 minutes is up? If so, you will need to start with even shorter times and gradually work up from there.

And if he's already started whining, don't let him out during an actual whine but when he pauses. Hopefully, we can make the time short enough that it's before he starts feeling stressed.

Sorry if this is a bit incomprehensible. By brain is beginning to blur. It's been a long day and in the middle of writing this I had to rush out to find Ember barking at 2 raccoons in our grapes.

Good luck and a vote!

We are a headed into September with no break in the heat, but the latest it's gotten to 90 since we've been here (Yes- I keep track) is September the 12th!!
They were running repeats of the show Alaskan Bush People earlier!! That was a cool show!!

Oh, that's great that you had a good day of training. And that your brother has finally realized the merits of letting Tyler get to know the dogs before he goes!

I think Tyler will do well with the crate since he goes in with no problem. I would put him in there for about 5 minutes at a time while you are doing something close by, especially if it's something he likes.

E.g. fixing breakfast or any other meal.

Getting ready for a trip or a walk.

While watching TV.

Don't do more than 5 minutes and when you let him out don't praise him (I know, this is hard!), just let him out calmly like it's nothing.

He sounds like a smart cookie and I think he'll pick up really quickly that going in the crate is just one of those things one does and there's nothing to it.

If you do this, let me know how it goes and we can go on from there.

Good luck!

And a vote.

Hello!
Whew, been super busy, WHEW I say! Dogs are great, keeping me busy and keeping themselves busy too. Loki isn't sure he likes not being the center of their attention. He goes from playing with them to trying to kill them in the blink of an eye hehe. He's such a Loki! He's my feller indeed and Maus has learned when cats get attention, dogs are not allowed near. Mainly for my safety. I have some nasty arm wounds right now, which isn't what I need, from a scuffle Loki and both dogs got into and I intervened too soon and got the wrath of Loki. He then spent the next 2 ours climbing on me to apologize, which was hilarious but really annoying! hehe. Trying to get a handle on this whole diabetes nonsense. Started doing what was recommended, which failed miserably so am going back to what I was doing. High sugar spikes are not fun I've learned! But, am walking daily, except Fridays cuz it's trash day and dogs and stinky bins are worse than dogs and mud puddles I've learned, and doing a lot more around the house which feels great. My daughter got her own apartment so the next week will be her coming in and out to move her stuff completely out! I'm actually a tad jealous, I've never ever lived by myself. After I had kids and had no partner, I still had a house full of people! Of course, when bf traveled a lot for work and kids were gone to other family members, I'd only be good for about 3 days before I needed them all back again. Still though, I sometimes long for those 3 days! hehe. We will be getting Maus into some dog training classes as soon as we get the funds after getting bf's commuter car back on the road. Always something with that car since we got it! UGH! But, otherwise life is good. I am still working on your goody box, still plan on getting it out before the end of time hehe. Well, here's hoping RonnieLee's dad is OK, and that you and Tyler are too!

Hello Kay!!
Dad is going to have surgery tomorrow, but because the sedative they're going to use on him, he'll probably sleep all day!! So-o we won't really know anything until Saturday!!
It was 91° today as our hot weather continues!!
Hooray for Tyler!!

I'm sorry. I was going to write yesterday evening and our internet was out again. The fires are still causing intermittent problems with both our internet and our cell service.

It seems to me that if your brother wants you to take care of his dogs next month that you need to let him know that you need time with them now! Both for Tyler's sake and for theirs.

Fence time is better than nothing though. Maybe you could take a chair out there and sit by the fence with them.

You said you haven't had a lot of time for training but as I'm sure you know, now is the most crucial time in his life for learning. Training is not just time set aside for specifics but it's the time he spends with you. He's picking up things every time you talk to him, pet him, show him something, etc.

If you pressed for time for specific training, can you spend 5 minutes a day? You'd be amazed at what difference that would make. That's what I had to do with Ember. Not only because of time constraints but because she has a really short attention span!

So, Tyler's okay going in the crate? Just not staying in it?

Leaving a vote. Loved the FB photos!

Okay, I'm back! Well, that's good that he's better with your nephew's dogs. That's promising!

Is the female back yard dog actually aggressive? If not, then it's probably best to take Tyler in there with you for a few minutes (or even seconds to begin with) each day. If he doesn't snap at them the progress will be quick. He mainly needs to get used to his surroundings, etc.

As for the crate, are you wanting him to sleep in it? Or just for travel, etc? Either way, for now you can leave it open with a couple of snacks in it, no strings attached.

Good luck!

And a vote.

Hello Kay!!
It was only 80° but very humid!! And we still have a few days in the 90s still ahead of us!!
My Dad was pretty wild in his younger days, but the Lord turned his life around!! As a teenager me and my two sisters lived with our Mother and only visited Dad every other weekend and for a few weeks in the Summer!! Even then he was very busy and we spent a lot of that time at my aunt and uncle's home and hung around with our cousins!! Me and Dad didn't always get along, but I always knew that he loved me!!!
Have a wonderful week!!

Congratulations on winning sotw. I wonder why they aren't changing the photo.

I haven't forgotten about Tyler. I was just thinking about it this afternoon and I thought that maybe we could do it on here. How is he doing? Any improvement?

With the aggression shown towards other dogs, I suspect it's fear related. This is the hardest kind to treat because you have to treat both the fear and the aggression. Melian had some trouble with that because of some really bad experiences with some nasty dogs. Hopefully Tyler hasn't had any past history like that.

So, I'll try to be here for you every night, even if it's just a quick tip! Let me know how he's doing and what the situation is with the other dogs in his life.

Have a great weekend! Leaving a vote for you.

Hello Kay,
I will probably lose my Dad before long, but he has had a long productive life!! He used to be very active and even had a pilot's and a motorcycle license!! Two things I've never done!! He was a local truck driver and was very active in Church!! I am the oldest of his 5 children and he has 7 grandkids!! We will be sad because we'll miss him!! But he'll no longer be suffering and he'll be in a better place!! So-o whenever I'm sad, there are lots of fond memories, to be comforted with!!!
We are having our 3rd straight day in the 90s!!
Button and Bella would never go for a bland diet!! They love their cat food too much!! How can they eat that stuff?!?

so sorry about your dad. i pray he gets better or has a very easy passing. i dont know what you would want for him. but i know this weighs heavy on you. just so sorry about that. i wish it was easier for you and i know that the distance is hard as well. Tyler is much better today. and he is still loving his "bland" diet. i think he may enjoy it more often. so i may incorporate some rice, chicken or broth in his food. tomorrow it is supposed to be 98 plus heat index/humidity. i am pretty sure we will be inside as much as possible. take care my friend. prayers always, Kay

Hi Kay!!
My father has a lot wrong with him he has had a major heart attack and had a stroke a few years back!! He has also had a possible seizure and has been through 2 heart by-pass surgeries!! He also has a mild form of cancer and is currently going through chemo!! He has lost 65 pounds, he sleeps all the time and he's just not himself!! And now after this latest incident, he has permanently lost some of his already weakened mental capacities!!
When we first found Button, he was a feral stray and had a bad respiratory infection and has to take antibiotics!!

well we are finally done with all the shopping and i plan on not going anywhere for the next few days. took a poop specimen in for Tyler today since we had to go to Petsmart anyway. they found he has this bacteria that dogs get from drinking dirty water. it sits in their system, so they think it was when he was a stray. so he got a shot and some meds for a few days. and he has to be on a bland diet for the next 3-4 days. well let me tell you he loves that bland diet, lol. glad your dad is doing better. but what is going on with his quality of life? what is happening with him? i am sure praying for you both. take care my sweaty friend, join the crowd!! prayers always, Kay and Tyler too

yes diabetic alert dogs are very useful and you can actually get a small one so it isnt as much upkeep and work. some of them just know how to do it and others are taught. some kids really need them. you should look into it. i know there are some places around that will help you train your own dog. they can help you find a good pound pup for it. so glad your dad is doing better. we need to head out so this is going to be cut short. prayers always, Kay
