It was a blast. I'll need to bring a bigger bag next time so I can puppy-nap him. ; ) He's even more adorable in person!!!! I smelled like puppy breath for hours..... heaven!

Our 1 year old Corgi girl has the same green rubber toy as Yogi. She received it when she was about 13 weeks old and it continues to be her favorite toy. It squishes, it bounces, it's easy to carry around. He's a cutie-pie for sure.

We had plans for Yogi today but had to cancel some of them due to my father being in an auto accident and my Mom going into a panic attack. Sigh. He's fine and it's a long story, but for a while my Mom claimed he was missing and I ended up calling the police to help us locate him. Sigh. Thankfully my Dad is fine. I'm emotionally exhausted thanks to my Mom's panic attack and worry until my Dad was located.

Yogi got a bath and blow dry (not happy about that), nails trimmed, had his first experience eating on a melting ice block outside (from emptying our icemaker box), got upset with the vacuum cleaner that wasn't even running and met some landscape workers in the neighborhood. He was exposed to a food processor going, a blender, an ice cream maker churning. He also got to see/hear our neighbor's car get towed onto a big tow truck since it broke down. Bulk trash trucks also came by and he got exposed to that noise. He helped hubby with some back yard construction, and also had a nap.

Hubby was in charge of Yogi's potty training today. We had a setback. My potty training method was too "intense" for him, and the result was we had some preventable accidents in the home. It's a setback and I'll start over again now with my "intense" system, which, BTW, was working!

I wondered if something was going on because we hadn't heard from you. Sorry to hear about your dad AND mom. I'm glad he is o.k. as well as mom.

Good luck with the potty training. They sure can try your patience, can't they? I'm sure Yogi will get it soon. Sending good thoughts for all of you. Hugs!

I think Yogi is a bashful pooper! We are back on my intense potty training program and we took him out just now to his potty pen (fully enclosed and protected). it's right next to my little pool house so we went in there, opened the window shade and popped the window open. I encouraged him to "go poopie" from behind the window in the dark and he did! As far as he was concerned he was getting directions from above!! Last week I noticed he'd wait to go until I turned my back so I think we have a new strategy until he's potty trained.
