Glad our Tobynator has suffered no lasting ill effects from the tamale!

I hope you and yours have a very happy Thanksgiving and that Toby doesn't eat too much turkey.

Thanks Lucy!! You as well- I hope your crew has a great Thanksgiving weekend! Toby would like turkey and all the trimmings, but given the state of his tummy sensitivity, it's not happening! He'll be getting a topper on his dinny and he will be thankful for that.

Whew!! Close Call!!

I took Toby for an pre-dawn Thanksgiving morning walk. He is becoming a very good walker with me, transitioning from walking on my left, to walking on my right, so I can control him a little better. I've been trying to get him back in the habit of walking on loose lead by my side, without sniffing every blade of grass or every tree or utility pole. He was doing really well this morning and I was in a state of zen with all the wonderful smells coming out of kitchens so early! I decided to let him go visit his favorite light pole on our walking route and while he was sniffing, I looked down.....less than two inches from his paw was a newly deceased squirrel. Knowing it looked just like one of his favorite stuffies I quickly pulled him off the pole without him even noticing the *treasure* literally at his feet! So on this Thanksgiving morning, I am very thankful we dodged another road kill episode!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Too funny, I thought the old gang of Tucker, Copper and Barkley have been working hard these past two weeks to bring some "excitement" into my early morning walks with the Tobynator! This one sounds EXACTLY like Copper's handiwork. So, to our mischief makers I send this note:

Quote:
To Copper, Tucker and Barkley-- You've had some fun with us the past two Thursdays...ha ha.. Yes, you've made my heart pump like crazy with the Great Tamale Escapade and the fresh Tree Kitty road kill, and yes, I definitely know you guys are behind this, but it's time to give a gal and her visually impaired but super sniffer mischief maker a break. It's time for tossing balls again guys! Toby needs a new supply. Plus, there is a great dog at the Bridge named Buddy- think you could take a lesson or two from him and send us ladybugs instead?

Love you guys always! Know you are always in my heart, Kiss Kiss and Lots of Ear Rubs,

Toby's Mom

Good question-- it varies from day to day! It was around 58 on Friday morning, 35 this morning and will be in the mid 40s tomorrow morning! You just never know here what is happening weather wise. I have a full arsenal of jackets and coats, gloves, hats, hoodies, shorts, sweats, tshirts, sweatshirts! Crazy! But...on the other hand, it beats walking in 80 degree early mornings with high humidity and west nile virus carrying mosquitoes out looking for a bite to eat!

Yay for Toby!! I'm so happy to see Toby is doing great and keeping you on hunting patrol! I wasn't quick enough with Casey one Thanksgiving and off we went to the ER to make sure her tummy was ok. She was fine but I was a wreck . I was quicker after that.
