Today is our first Co-Hosted, Follow-Up Friday blog hop. I’d like to give a special thanks to Hawk at Brown Dog CBR and his mom, for joining me on this crazy trip. Hawk’s mom shared that she sometimes struggles with technology, as do I so you can imagine, what a feat this was to pull off! (If we even did it.)
For those new to the blog, my follow-up Friday provides me with an opportunity to update or revise a post from the previous week.
You know sometimes you post about something and you need an update but it doesn’t warrant a whole blog. Or sometimes someone made a comment that really resonated with you. Yup, Follow-Up Friday baby!
Whoops Where’s Delilah – Author’s Note
It may not look it in the picture but that rock is actually quite high and my dog is quite fearless. I’ve actually seen her run up an almost straight incline on a rock, causing me to gasp and actually wonder if she really wasn’t part mountain goat.
Her jumping off that rock should NOT have come as a surprise to me, yet somehow, here I am five and a half years later still being surprised by the crazy antics of my dog.
Sampson’s Saga Continues – Update
Sampson went to the vet last night for his re-check. (He’s been on the Meloxicam for just over two weeks.) We got out regular vet last night, she took one look and said he’s got a bacterial skin infection. He is currently on antibiotic and will be re-checked in two weeks. She also recommends continuing with the Aloe, which really seems to be helping.
The mark on the inside of his leg which I thought was a bruise? My vet explained the pigment color in Sampson’s skin has changed due to a low-grade infection.
Had I taken him to the vet a couple of weeks ago when we first noticed it, he probably wouldn’t have broken out. I feel like such a bad dog owner.
One on One – Author’s Note
Some of you said you walk two dogs at the same time and make a game of it, I think that’s cool. Some of you said you vary the schedule which I think is what I am going to do.
When I can, I want to walk the dogs by themselves.
I think this will accomplish a number of things.
1) It will be easier for me to work with them one on one.
2) It will give them each an opportunity to spend time with me.
3) Their personalities can shine through without being shadowed by the other.
4) It will vary their exercise routine making it more interesting all around.
Personally I think varied exercise program is stimulating for their minds as well as their bodies.
Do you vary your dog’s exercise program? If so, what types of exercise do you include?
