Of course Sport does not run. But he DID shuffle determinedly after Tweed a couple of times, just like the old days, whilst we were playing DumbBall.
Sporty can’t go for long walks, so we compromise – once a day he gets to come clatter around the horse paddock while the other dogs play ball. For the other walk of the day, I slip him a Percocet, he goes to sleep on the big pillow and I take the dogs out for a long run without him.
However, yesterday Sporty accompanied us all the way down to the barn and back. He seemed to really enjoy it – so much so that when I let everyone out for an afternoon pee, he took himself for a second walk down to the barn without me. Then he got lost, so I had to go retrieve him. Fortunately, he moves very slowly.
This morning at breakfast he said that he didn’t want his food, he wanted what everyone else was getting, so he got a bowl of tripe, which he ate!
For dinner, he ate a bag of sample kibble that the nice folks at Elemental Canine gave us to try out. He also ate two slices of processed “cheeze” and about 4 mouthfuls of his actual, 40-minutes-to-prepare meal.
I rather enjoy having Sporty around. I do wish he’d close his eyes when he sleeps though, because I keep thinking he’s dead.
Anyway, mostly I stopped by to let you all know that as part of my Master Plan for 3WAAW I will be migrating the content off of Blogger and onto its own server. There will be some changes to the site, which I’m making based on some excellent advice from Judy at JTdataworks. The idea is that 3WAAW will earn its keep down the road!! There may be some interruption to the blog, though I do hope there won’t be … but despite the changes you will eventually see, it will still be 3WWAW – ie, irreverent and peppered with swear words :)
See you soon!
