My little puppies turned 6 months this week.
They're growing up so fast.
Guapa is on the rug she likes to pee on – yes, she's the guilty one.
But, I learned it's not that she thinks it's okay to pee on the rug, it's that she thinks it's okay to pee on the floor that the rug is covering.
Remember our old dog, Sedi? That spot was her spot…. and she was incontinent for her last few months.
It's tile, I'm not certain why the scent remains (it should smell of pine and lemon) but it must.
Yes, I caught her in the act – yelled and chased her around the house. She was properly scared – I just hope she connects the dots…. Soon.
At least I didn't have to wash the rug.
Bonnie is still being a fussy eater. I've started taking her food away if she doesn't eat it within a reasonable (to me) time.
Yesterday she completely missed breakfast and had to resort to eating chunks of wood from mon mari's shop.
Today she had a different snack: lizard tails.
I didn't realize that raising puppies could be so educational….. For all of us.
We have a lot of lizards on our house. (You may have read me complaining about them falling into the house when we open the windows),
This is what we learned about lizards today:
The puppies learned that lizard tails come off really easily.
I learned that the tails keep on moving for about 3 minutes or until Bonnie eats them, whichever comes first.
The puppies learned that lizard tails taste good (apparently, they kept going back for more).
I learned to not look to closely when I saw lizard tails in puppy jaws (think Jurassic Park)
The puppies learned that they could bring them in the house to play.
I learned that catching and transporting lizards back outside is impossible.
BTW, Guapa redeemed herself for all past transgressions tonight….
This is spider season. It's when the monster spiders come in the house to stage their winter take-over.
I hate this. I'm terrified of them and each one is bigger than the last.
Guapa was playing with a really big one. She didn't kill it (or eat it) but she did damage it enough that mon mari was able to get to it and finish it off before it disappeared into the walls.
