Today we are in a high wind warning. The ridge is covered in clouds, the wind is whistling in our poorly insulated window by the kitchen and Little Dude is in a huff about not getting out for a good play session. We did have some adventures — I vacuumed. Woe unto the four legged beast who must share a room with THAT contraption. He is both fascinated and terrified of it. When it’s off he does the full body stretch of standing as far as he can but if he stretches he can get in a good sniff or two to see what it’s all about. When it’s on he just backs up and jumps around like, “WHOA, WHAT WHAT WHAT…. EEEK!” He hasn’t started barking at it which is what Bacca used to do until he figured that he could drop his toys in front of it to see if it would play with him. Sadly the vacuum cleaner and wielder would rather clean the carpets than play Toss The Toy Out Of The Way.
Our other adventure is in watching TV. Some shows Little Dude just curls up and goes to sleep or chews on a toy — not so with Poirot. I think the strange accents and all the car/train/plane noises have him fascinated. He either sits bolt upright next to me or right in front of the TV watching it VERY closely. Sometimes he looks behind the TV to see if he can get a better vantage point. Silly pup. At least watching TV with him is entertaining on several fronts.
Today is also going to be a good day for baking dog treats. I’m going to attempt some cookies and possibly some flat cracker type things. We’re running low on treats we have already spent money on and since we have PLENTY of ingredients it’s time to bust out the baking skills. Sadly the kitchen needs some cleaning before I can really start baking but that shall have to wait until we have had our blustery walk/hike.
