A Dog's Life

Having a dog makes for a busy social calendar. Cadie and I were totally in-demand and on the move this weekend. First we were invited to Toby’s house, where we ate hotdogs and chewy sticks. Then we were invited to Salt’s house for pizza and grooming. All in all it was a great weekend, though a tiring one.

Friday night saw an epic battle between Cadie and Toby for possession of the chewy sticks. There were lots of chewy sticks for both dogs, but they just don’t share well. Toby’s mother and I tried to stay up and see this battle to its conclusion, but at 12:20 we had to pack it in and head to bed. The problem was that Cadie was three or four very satisfying chews away from finishing hers. The fact that I pulled her away before she was finished meant that she did not sleep that night, and if she doesn’t sleep, I don’t sleep. She spent most of the night sitting by the door hoping that I would let her out so that she could go and get her treasure. First thing in the morning, she ran out of the guest room and into the living room, where she looked frantically for her chewy stick. In the end my friend and I gave the dogs another 2 chewy sticks to keep them quiet. It didn’t work, the battle immediately started up again. Oh well, at least it was entertaining.

After a good long nap Cadie and I headed over to see Salt, it was much more subdued there on Saturday night. The dogs did share a treat, and then they both crashed out. It made for a very peaceful and pleasant evening.

Today was all about us, we had a good 2 hours out in the morning, a nice run around the park, and a good long street walk. The sunshine was so bright and invited that I really couldn’t face a day of sitting inside, so in the late afternoon we headed out for Yonge and York Mills, a good 3-hour walk tonight. And now it’s time for a nice snuggle before heading to work tomorrow.
