Another milestone

Watkins has been loose around the house the past three days. He has done really well. He actually plays himself tired(he he he). Today has not been really good but he is still doing good. I really like having him loose inside because we don't get caught up. With him loose he also doesn't seem to bark as much. If he has to go to the bathroom he just walks to the backdoor and looks at me. So nice compared to the barking to tell me he has to go out.

On another note last night someone said "Look theres Marely." No he wasn't being bad we were walking back to the car from taking mom out to dinner for her birthday.

The Boy I Love

I don't remember if I have shown pictures of Watty I have taken "formally". I wanted to keep them a secret till I gave them to Sandy as a Christmas gift. Since she has them now I will show them. I am not sure if I sent Sandy one of the "baby" pictures.

Dr. Watkins I presume

I can't believe I have had my wild child for 6 months already. Everyday we are getting better but there are times I feel we aren't getting along. This month has had many events. Watty went and saw Santa, he decided to have kennel cough, he ate two q-tips, and got mange. We also had Christmas, New Years, and my birthday. I had some doctor appointments too.

Watty had coughed bad and since Shocker had esophagus problems I called the vet and got him in. Our vet said he had kennel cough. Our vet gave us antibiotics and said to use a warm humidifier so we did that for two weeks as prescribed. We decided he either got it when he saw Santa or when he said hi to a pup in the pet store. I dropped a q-tip one day and then I heard a crunch. I then called the vet and she told me what to do and he came out unscathed from that. When Watty went for his kennel cough check-up the vet found a small spot on his front left leg. She scraped it and found it to be mange. It is the noncontagious mange. So he is on cream once a day for it. He is getting all medical stuff out of the way early I guess.

Christmas Watty did great. He tried to play with my brother's dog but he didn't want to play. He enjoyed all he got. New Years Watty barked at the fireworks when Chip was barking at them. Once we calmed Chip down Watty didn't care about the fireworks. My birthday was yesterday and we didn't do much except go out to dinner. He calmed down a little after we got settled and slept until the waiters sang happy birthday to two other people. My doctors appointments he did well.

So far this 7th month has gone great. I found out that a friend of mine is pregnant and my cousin is engaged. :)

Diamonds are a (boys) best friend

This morning my attendant brought Diamond over to play with Watty. Watty loved having her here. At first she did not know what to do because Watty was pouncing all over the place. Once Watty and Diamond got outside and started running they chased and chased and chased each other. Even our neighbor's dog wanted in. Once we got back inside it was time for Watty to get to work. At first he was still a little hyper but he calmed quickly. Diamond kept saying hi to me and Watty did really well staying where he was. Diamond even ran and grabbed Watty's bone from the bedroom and started chewing on it. She sure made her self right at home. The bone was about as long as she was. Luckily we had a bone here that we had gotten Chip but he doesn't chew on bones. It is Diamond's now.

I am almost at my frustration level. This entire week Watkins has barked and barked and barked and barked and barked. You get the picture. Well I was thinking okay he has to go outside. He did and 10 minutes later he starts all over again. I walk him through the house showing him no one different is here. He is still going on. He was almost pulling my chair over sometimes too. UGH!!! Tomorrow will be better, tomorrow will be better, tomorrow will be better.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great New Year. We just stayed at home and enjoyed the booms of fireworks from our house. I am not into resolutions but I am going to try and be more organized and on top of stuff. I am also going to work more with Watty to get us more as one. I am going to find a job and get things in order so I can move out when the time is right ;). Happy New Year!
