It has been a hard week for this guy. With the smaller cone he quickly figured out how to get around it, so now he’s in this massive one. Mumma’s heart is hurting for you. It hasn’t been the speedy recovery we were hoping for so the meds and taking it easy will continue another week. Sorry Nanuk the cone will have to stay too. #toosmartforhisowngood
We have a door on our Master Bedroom to keep the dogs out- 1. So Bane doesn’t eat my shoes, purse, briefcase, whatever... & 2. So the dogs don’t torture Scott’s old cat & eat her food. Scott kept accusing me of leaving the gate open. I knew I was shutting it. So I finally caught the culprit. And then filmed it after Scott & the boys didn’t believe me! I swear God & the universe & Huck ALL must have known I NEEDED SOME “TODDLER LIKE” MISCHIEF in my life. This giant poodle of mine keeps me on my toes & he keeps me laughing- even when I don’t want to!! #BaneIsBad#standardpoodle#toosmartforhisowngood#dogs
Soooooo, my Riley boo is diabetic, and we have to find snacks that have no carbs, right? Well, he loves pepperoni which has no carbs, but has cholesterol. You trade one for the other lol. Okay, so last Saturday we are at Super 1 and I ask him what he wants.
Riley: I want pepperoni.
Me: You’ve been eating a lot and it’s got cholesterol.
Riley: What about the turkey pepperoni?
Me: Well, look at it and see. (I grab the bag and hand it to him.). So, how much?
Riley: 35 grams
Me: See, that’s a lot.
Riley: Mom, don’t you know there’s good and bad cholesterol?
Me: I 💭 smartypants🤣
I just looked at him for a min before we continued lol

Flu shots today. I decided (after long deliberation and stress) it was better not to tell Finn why we were going to the doctor. I was worried he wouldn’t get out of the car. Welp, it was traumatic all the same. On the way home Finn said, through his tears, “Mom, you didn’t say I was getting a shot, you just said we were going to the doctor. Why did you do that?”
PS...Finn cried like a maniac and Max barely batted an eye. #theysurvived
Saturday morning, I got up to discover that our internet was out. I had some work to do, so I decided to go to a coffee shop. Usually if I'm leaving, I put Watson in my bedroom, but my housemates were around, and the other dogs were out, so I left him in the yard. He cried a little as I closed the gate, but quieted down by the time I was loading my backpack in the back seat. I assumed he had wondered off to play with the other dogs. Instead, I got in the car, only to look over and see THIS smug little face sitting in his car seat. Apparently he's found another hole in the fence and decided he was coming with. We went to the Farmer's Market and I worked for a bit at Starbucks while he people watched.
