Lookit that. I censored my blog for my mom. She gets mad when I swear. And no one wants an angry mom. An angry mom with freakishly strong hands at that!!
Anyways, seriously! Where is time going?! So, it's pretty much almost winter. Or feels that way anyways. It's insane. Snow down low, cold rainy temps, leaves ON THE GROUND, etc. Oh well, at least it feels like dog training time!! I'd rather have snow and cold than this crap rain, I'll tell you that much. Besides, I didn't have enough to do with my freakishly vanishing time before.
Oh, speaking of how much more crap I can put on my plate, look what I dragged home last week:
I swear, I have NO idea where they came from... they just fell into my yard, or rather, into my truck one day. They're only mine to keep for a month, as I'm just watching them for a friend. I should have REALLY thought this over though, but he dropped them off with virtually no warning and was kind of stuck. I had nowhere to keep puppies(oh, and their mom), no extra pen, nothing. In fact, they stayed in my truck for 2 days. And actually quite liked it! But it gave me incentive to get a new pen up I guess.
Man, now my truck needs a good cleaning. But now they are in their pallet pen. It was the only thing that would contain the little escaping buggers.
I found a Meerkat!
We tried the "pups in cabin" game. Ah, not such a brilliant idea. But did it stop me from doing it like, 5x already?? Nooooo... I knew things were going wrong when they tore through the cabin at mock five and left a path of destruction in their wake, including my ripped-out-of-the-wall-phone-cord. Kind of like Ripper! Agh! Good god I can't imagine more than one Ripper. On the bright side, pups bounce off of EVERYTHING.
Puppy love, when they're not attacking each other, they're lovin' each other. Love is fickle.
So, I have a new pen and fencing up now though. Talk about excitement in the yard...
It helps having a friend who has access to cheap fencing and ideas on actually HOW to successfully put up a skookum fence/enclosure! Sweeeeet.... it'll be like Alcatraz.
It's about 100sq feet, not a huge pen, but good to have an extra pen regardless. Note the metal poles!! Oooohhhh, ahhhhh... no wobbly tree posts. What a concept. The pallet pen stayed in there as I quite like it. It's a fun puppy jail within the pen.
Right now I'm laptop-less so I'm actually getting lots done at home. I should have it back this weekend, so I'll update on our hike out in Kluane with Sean/Heather/babies last week! Those babies are good hikers. They especially loved it when we rolled them down the hills. Too bad Sean forgot the baby stroller, but they're hardy Yukon kids!
