The big news is that the Tastee Freez opened on March 1st and Mommy and I took a short hike in the snow on March 3rd and then, after the hike, we stopped at the Tastee Freez and I got my first Pup Cup of the season. Mmmmm Pup Cups...
Because Mother Nature decided to give us all our winter snow in March, Mommy had a snow day this month. I like snow days because it means we go for walks and I get to hang out in the backyard and bark at the snowblower and stuff. But this snow day Mommy did some in the house chores and then decided to catch up on some of the tv shows she had recorded and not watched. This is okay, except when it was time for me to shift my napping spot from the kitchen to the livingroom MOMMY WAS ON THE COUCH!! I went over to my livingroom bed and turned around and turned around and turned around and turned around and glared at Mommy and turned around and turned around and turned around. Mommy looked over at me and I glared at her harder and I turned around and turned around and FINALLY Mommy said, "Do you want to sit on the couch? Here, I'll move over." and she did and I climbed up and lay down and went to sleep right away. Seriously, how slow on the uptake can she be? A little while later we looked out the window at the bird feeders and we saw that a whole flock of red-winged blackbirds had flown in during the storm. It is wrong for summer birds to arrive in town in the middle of a snow day.
As you know if you read my previous post, Mommy insisted on taking our Daylight Savings Hike even though it was pouring down rain all day that day. I was not amused. Mommy and I also took a New Year hike too to celebrate the beginning of spring. It was much better weather that day.
Also in March I got prescribed a new walking schedule by the vet. See, I've been having these rogue pooping incidents like I mentioned at the start. Mommy got really concerned when one morning she heard me rustling around in my bed and then she suddenly smelled poo. I had pooped while lying on my bed. Luckily my butt end was off the bed, so I hadn't pooped on the bed, but I had made a circle of poo around the bed. Mommy yelled, "What the hell?!!" and sent me outside. She wasn't mad at me but worried because I hadn't even asked to go out. Then that night just before we fell asleep I suddenly realized I had to poop so I jumped off the bed and ran out of the bedroom pooping all the way. Mommy called the vet and the vet said that she thought that one of three things was happening. They were:
- I wasn't totally pooping when I went outside because my back hurts so I was having to poop again sooner than expected
- Because of my back I'm not getting much warning when I have to poop and so I am surprised by it
- Both 1 and 2
- go out right away in the morning and not get to lie around in bed until I feel like getting up.
- be sure to poop before bed which meant I was supposed to either be followed around by Mommy in the backyard or take a walk
