Surprisingly, we have managed to still grab a pretty bit piece of the pie.
The biggest news is on a personal note. It is official – I put in notice at my job! I won’t go into the boring details of why but I will say that it was imperative to be able to take care of myself and my family.
This move has already started opening me up to some great opportunities. May is going to be all about getting my Grandpa’s house on the market but I am also going to start managing a Facebook Page for a local pet store. I am also starting a dog walking business catering to Dachshunds and other small dogs.
I am still in the planning stages for those so I can’t share any details yet but I will be sure to fill you in as soon as I can.
Last week I told you about the BlogPaws and PetSmart contest. We made it to the final round so the last couple of days I have scrambled to shoot a 2-minute video on why I should win and upload it for judging. I want to show you the video but I am not sure I can until the winner is chosen. Stay tuned.
In addition to all of this, we have been weiner sitting two Doxies the last week. We met Serena and Karli with their dog Moms at the last Adventureweiner Walk. Serena is a black and tan dabble and Karli is a light solid red.
This was a trial period of a few days. We are going to watch them over a week in a Month or so.
These little girls are super cute and were a pleasure to have at our house. They don’t always get to sleep in their Mamma’s bed so they were a little confused the first night. There was a lot of up and down and bouncing around on the bed like at a kids slumber party. Karli is a real face licker too so they would just calm down, we would just start to dose off and then you would get a big, wet doxie tongue in the eyeball. She is fast with her licks too…Like “ratta-tat-tat”.
They caught on really fast. The second night all we had to do was lift the blankets and they ran in and laid right down. Serena, Karli and Gretel would all curl up between my legs or by my feet. Occasionally one of them would come up for air because it would get super hot down there.
Serena was super sweet but every day when I would come home from work I think she has forgotten who I was. She would run up to me barking, try to run away if I tried to pet her (still barking) and then follow me around barking like she was trying to tell me to leave. After a couple of minutes she would calm down though and get all snuggly.
Even though we haven’t made it out into the woods lately we have still managed to do some fun, adventurous things. I DO look forward to nicer spring weather and more available time to hike though.
