|Mommy, no offense..but this isn't the best lunch you've ever made|
After I convinced her to stop eating the Play Doh, she then just started tearing off tiny pieces and throwing them everywhere. Oh good, another excuse to sweep and mop the kitchen. That doesn't happen often enough.
I was OK with her making a mess, but I had to take it all away when she threw a ball of Play Doh to the dog and before I could even stand up, the dog swallowed the whole thing. I had no idea that dogs would eat Play Doh, but Peanut has been on a diet for almost 2 months now so that's probably her excuse. In case you were wondering, Play Doh is fine for dogs, but it's not gluten free. I know, isn't that horrifying? Evil gluten, right in your house? You can never let your guard down.
|Oh Mommy, don't mock people who are afraid of gluten.|
Faith went back to the doctor this morning and she seems to be all better: no more fever and her blood count is back to normal. She's eating again and drinking water like it's her job, so I think that's a big part of her recovery. I'm glad she's better just in time for the weekend so she can have some fun and get out some of her pent up toddler energy.
Speaking of pent up energy, the dog had to suffer a little this week because with Faith and I both being under the weather, she didn't get her usual amount of daily exercise. She went to doggie day care today and spent the day playing and barking, so hopefully that made it up to her.
|I'm pretty sure she barks the entire day|
If you're thinking I sound like a crazy dog lady, that's OK because I probably am. I take the Cesar Milan "45 minutes of exercise a day" for a dog guideline pretty seriously, but in my defense I have a high energy dog and it's not optional if I want Peanut to be a good dog. I'm sure some dogs are fine with less exercise, but mine is a monster after a few days of being cooped up. The daycare lets her do things she otherwise can't (like play with other dogs and bark all day), and it really exhausts her. I'm slowing down as I get bigger and bigger (and it's been so hot), so we'll probably keep sending her to daycare once a week so she can get rid of excess energy. Once I get back up and running after the baby, it won't be necessary to send her there so frequently.
Do you think you're a crazy dog/cat person? I like to think I'm reasonable about it because it's not like I treat her like a person (or a child), she's just a very, very spoiled dog.
Thanks for all the responses to the baby name post! I loved all the funny responses and we were able to add a few names to our list (sorry, not Ursula Goblinfucker or Chastity "Tity" Kramer)
