I'm so jealous that you were able to hang out with Anne and Toby and meet Yogi What a fun afternoon! Great to see the photos, I just love seeing them....

I haven't been on in a few days and have totally missed by Yogi fix. Glad to hear he is well....but so sorry to hear about Toby's ears and tail...poor Toby. Also sorry about your dad and mom - seems you have it under control with them now which is good......now to get Yogi not to be BR shy and to stop chewing on Toby.

I definitely need to get a puppy fix....what a cutie!! Will check out my calendar.

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!
Sorry to hear about the accident, but glad both parents are OK. I'm enjoying reading your posts.... It's sort of like experiencing the world through Yogi's fresh eyes...

Thanks everyone! My parents are fine thank goodness, but it's a very traumatic experience for an adult child to think your parent might be missing and in distress. I got a good night's sleep (thanks Yogi!!!) and feel much better today!

Yogi got his first bath last night, with a towel rub and blow dryer:

He is definitely NOT a fan of baths.

We defrosted our ice machine yesterday and Yogi discovered a slushy block, stopping to refresh himself for a bit:


He is a clown:


We teased him and made him an octohead:


Today is a training day- first day on sliplead and learning sit/stay.

Yogi just met Aunt Betty's DIL and 2 grandsons and had a grand time with lots of chasing and squeals! Thanks to Betty's family for stopping by!
