Rocky managed to tear up a lot of things while I was gone for the short while it took to return the iPad. I thought I had pretty much dog proofed the house, but the bathroom door just wasn't closed tightly enough and he had access to one of his favorite things to do - chew a roll of toilet paper!
I mailed my ballot today and feel relief that it is done. I hope a lot of young voters cast their ballots - they are the ones who will be living with the results for the long run and they should turn out to express their choices.
Rocky seems to be doing well on the special food I'm feeding him for about 10 days, although he accuses me of starving him! He's not allowed to have any treats, but the vet did say I could use some of his food pellets as treats. He's trying to make up for the lack of food and treats by eating paper!
I have a problem that someone might have a solution for, although I can't imagine there being a solution except to get rid of my dog! I have a very small and narrow electric stove in my kitchen - with 4 burners on top. Because it is so small, two of the burners are close to the front edge, and I have a puppy that loves to put his 2 front paws on the stove while he's standing to see what he can possibly snatch, or maybe he just likes to see what is going on.
I am extremely careful when I have turned one of the burners on, although anyone who cooks with electric knows that they don't provide instant heat, nor do they instantly cool down when the burner is turned off. Every time he jumps up and puts his paws anywhere near the 2 front burners I am terrified that the instance will come when I can't stop him in time.
You can buy metal covers for the burners, although I wouldn't put a cover on until the burner had cooled down. Any ideas?
I can remember the days when I longed for the weekend to arrive, and it always seemed that time flowed at a snail's pace. Tomorrow is Friday, but yesterday was just Monday!
These were taken with my jitterbug phone which isn't really a very good camera! I had a 6 pack carrier with a couple of empty bottles that I had rinsed. Evidently he can taste what was left after the rinse because he was fascinated with the bottles! Click to enlarge the pictures. Like a very young child, he likes the empty box more than what had been in it.
