Busy Weekend

Spent the day at the agility fun match yesterday. DD did great! I was very proud. She and Dakota got best overall time, first place in the advanced dog category and their team (of a mix of advanced, intermediate and beginner dogs) also placed first!

Here's a video of one of her runs, the first (and not the best one, but still good -- I haven't uploaded the others yet):

I was exhausted. So was DD and the dog. In fact, we fed the dog lunch when we got home (around 2 pm) and then I forgot to feed her dinner -- because I didn't eat -- and she never woke up to ask for it! LOL...

The cat goes in for her first check up with my vet today. She's still having vomiting problems. If I feed her more than a few pieces of food for a meal, she gobbles it down and then throws it right back up. So I have to try to remember to feed her 10 - 15 pieces every hour or two. I know she probably isn't getting enough to eat, because there are times I'm just not around (like yesterday), but I'm not sure what else to do. Will talk to the vet today. Maybe soft food is the answer...

Just once, I'd like to have a low maintenance pet.

Otherwise, she's settling in pretty well. She decided to use DH's hockey equipment as a litter box (I'll admit... I can understand the confusion because it really stinks) and she's starting to climb on the counters (a big no-no), but DH has been remarkably patient.

And, yes, she still loves him best. :-P

Today is supposed to be gorgeous, weatherwise, so I might finally go out and cut down my perennials, and pull down my tomato cages for the winter. We'll see...

Have a happy Monday!


You Are a Blackberry Smoothie

You are mentally alert and curious. Your mind is always at work, even when you're resting.

You produce valuable and original works. You are quite the creator.

You are insightful and astute. You are quite savvy when it comes to most things.

You are probably an expert in at least one field. You love gaining deep knowledge.

LOL... mostly right.

Dakota was great. I wish I could get Iko to stay that focused.

A few weeks ago I had a bout with Tank vomiting. Since he threw up seconds after he ate, I suspected it was a reflux. Like you, I fed smaller meals four times a day rather than two.

It went away after a few days. Since then I've try to make meal times peaceful. It seems to help. He eats more slowly and keeps it down.

Good luck. Let us know what you find out.

Dakota was so cute! I wish my dog could be so well trained to do that, but I just don't have the time to train him those kind of tricks. I'm happy with sit, stay, and give me paw, and kiss.

Hope the kitty is okay.

I hope the vet can figure out the kitty's problems with food.

Congrats on DD and Dakota's placement.

I hope the vet can help with what ails Lexie.

I hope you had a good day.
