My "kids" are all over 30 and Stu's are close to that...not really kids anymore, but we still call them that. We have grandkids from almost 3 to mid-20's, so not all of them are really "kids". LOL!
Yesterday morning Stu's grandgirls Skype'd him and they chatted a bit. Last night my grandkids in Atlanta Skype'd us as well. Have you ever tried talked to an 8 year old as she walks her laptop around with her? It's interesting to say the least.
There is a pair of "kids" whose blog I follow....I love their sense of adventure and true joy of life. Their posts from the last two days need to be shared....I think you'll enjoy them as much as I did.
We'll be doing a preview of the vendors at Gator Harley today, tomorrow is our big day. Since we'll be gone all day tomorrow and the temps are forecast for upper 80's, we decided to send Sadie to doggy camp at Preppy Pet. We'll probably take Saturday off and visit on the final day, Sunday. But then again, our plans are always flexible!
On a side note, Sadie is now 8 months old and 34.5#. Her energy level has increased and we are trying to get her out with the bicycle every day, most days twice. In addition, visits to the dog park help. Challenging us, her stubborn streak has grown. She is so smart but sometimes selectively so...LOL!
Walking when she is excited has been a challenge so yesterday we bought a Gentle Leader. We have already gone through collar walking (pulls and chokes herself), regular harness, web harness (still pulls, great for riding in the truck or on the bike), Halti harness (best initially but she's too strong now), and yesterday finally bought the Gentle Leader Head Collar.
We have steered away from these because people interpret them as a muzzle (which they are definitely NOT). It's supposed to work on the opposition principle, putting pressure on the back of the neck as well as turning the dogs head towards you when they pull ahead. We'll see....
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
