Having a basset hound that I allow to sleep on my bed, I've learned one very important lesson. White sheets turn basset brown. I have a set of regular tie-dye sheets but I'm so used to sleeping on flannel and t-shirt sheets, they aren't very comfy. I was able to get the person that made the regular sheets flannel tie-dye. Jake of course, had to try them out.
These sheets don't smell like me.
Uhm, I had a cookie over here...what did you do with it?
Jake had a busy busy day today. He went to Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area and waddled around. Then he went to the Chain of Rocks Bridge and waddled to the middle of the Mississippi River. Lucky for me, Jake didn't find any deer poo. Lots of scents. He walked with his nose glued to the ground for the most of the trip.
Jake is taking Metacam, an NSAID, for his arthritis. This means he has to have periodic bloodwork to make sure his liver is working. Jake had his bloodwork done today and it came back great! YAY!
I'm practicing my photography and I have to say, a sleeping Jake is a great subject. Since he is deaf, he can't hear the noise the camera makes. I was reading some photo tips and one of the suggestions was to fill the frame.
Hope everyone is having a great new year! Jake is! He got a new bed to start the new year. He wishes it wasn't so cold so he could go on more walks.
Jake has an interesting new habit or behavior. I'm a night owl, so I'm up at 12:30 am or later... Jake has now decided to mother hen me. At around 12:30 am, he starts giving me dirty looks. Apparently, he's decided I need to go to bed early. If I get out of bed, he gets up and follows me around until I go back t bed. Now, he's decided to sleep in the doorway of my room.
