Tis another gorgeous morning here in my little part of the world. My little fellow has already gone outside and sprinkled his patch of grass, and eaten all of his breakfast. Alas, it was dog food, but he relished it anyway. Now he is fast asleep again by my side.
I took some photos a couple of days ago while Dee Dee was here with Sassy. Pogo gets all excited when Sassy comes to visit, but Sassy just isn't as cooperative as Pogo would like her to be. She's not "that kind" of girl. Sassy would like to play and run around, but my Pogo is into more macho stuff. After a while, Pogo gives up and turns to his other friend, Miss Bunny. We'll have to work on this.
I had a leash on Pogo for a while until I was sure the two doggies would actually get along, and not fight with each other. I may have to look into behavior classes to teach Pogo that there are other things doggies can do to have fun.
Yesterday, after supper, Pogo and I went for a ride, then stopped by Petco to look for a small carry bag. We found a really nice one, along with two XS tee shirts. From there we went to a nearby Dairy Queen (soft ice cream) and shared a small vanilla cone. Gosh, Pogo really spoils me, doesn't he?
When we got home and tried the new carrier, the shoulder straps kept slipping off my shoulders, so this will have to be returned. However, we are keeping the two little tee shirts. One is sleeveless, and is maybe a tad big, but I'm sure it will probably shrink a speck in the wash and fit perfectly. Here's a photo of Pogo in his new orange shirt.
I finally got to wash Pogo's face last night and got off some of the yucky stuff. There was old dried up tears and other junk stuck to his face (from the oral surgery). His face has been very tender and he wasn't letting anyone touch it. But now he looks so much better with a clean face.
Next, I have to decide if we should let his hair grow back till he's covered with lots of curly hair, or if we should just keep it the way it is. I rather like the way he looks now. Hmmm, we'll have to think on this.
Do I seem to talk a lot about Pogo? Yeah, well he certainly does require a lot of my time But this would be true of any new pet. Especially a rescue pet. They need time to feel wanted, and to get used to their new surroundings. However, now I need to start spending a bit of time doing all the other things that need doing. We're getting there.
Tonight, it's back to work. Oh joy! Pogo will get to stay with Joe, his nighttime babysitter. I surely hope this goes better than the daytime situation did. I will make sure he has had his supper before I leave for work. It's going to take some time for Pogo to get used to the sitters. I could probably leave him alone, but I'm not really comfortable doing that. The time element is too long.
Enough of my chatter. Now it's time for me to get dressed and start doing a few things around here. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
