Co-Hosted Follow-Up Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Co-Hosted Follow Up Friday Blog hop, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.

Follow-Up Friday Blog Hop

My co-hostess this week is a repeat offender. :-)

I really wish she and I lived closer because I would love to hike with her, in fact her post yesterday has me siriously considering taking the dogs Geocaching.

It seems I’m always learning something when I visit her blog, whether it’s about geocaching, butterfly gardens or architecture.

Guessed it yet?

It’s Gizmo and Beth from Terrier Torrent!!

Thanks so much for co-hosting with me this week, Gizmo and Beth, it’s good to have you back.

Waist Not, Want Not – Author’s Note

I’d like the dogs to lose just a little bit more weight, Sampson more than Delilah.  She’s actually pretty close to her perfect weight in my eyes, but we’ll see what our vet says in June.  In the meantime, I’ll continue to cut a tiny bit more from their raw food and see how it goes.

If anyone is interested in trying raw and need a good nutritionist just let me know, Sandy doesn’t mind if I share her e-mail.

Monday Mischief – Update

I was pretty sore Monday and Tuesday but nothing that wasn’t expected with the hard body slam I took. :-)  I kept my wrist wrapped for Sunday and Monday night and by Tuesday it wasn’t bothering me in the least.

I’m truly grateful it wasn’t worse.

Kefir Madness – Author’s Note

I was surprised that so many of you already knew about Kefir, where have I been?  Why am I always last to the party? :-)

I was asked if it’s not a bit messy, and yes sometimes it is.  Delilah eats her treat on the throw rug in the living room and that’s easily washable.  Sampson gets his on a towel on our bed.  Normally it’s not very messy at all.

If I Could Turn Back Time – Author’s Note

I guess I get more training in then I realized.  Somehow when I think of training I think of teaching the dogs something new.  But there’s nothing wrong in reinforcing your foundation commands, you never know when a good sit or wait will save your dog.


The Art of a Dog Fart – Author’s Note

I was surprised to hear some of you say your dogs don’t fart.  While my dogs don’t fart a lot, there are times when they do.  As evidenced by yesterday’s post.

What really made me laugh and what so many of you echoed in the comments was that the dog doesn’t realize what the fart is and that it actually came from them.

Oh the things that amuse me.

That’s it for my Follow-Up Friday post, many thanks for Terrier Torrent for co-hosting this week.

This is the Follow-Up Friday Blog hop, co-hosted by Terrier Torrent and Heart Like a Dog

    Thank you for inviting me back as co-host this week Jodi, and for the kind comments about my blog. I’m glad you’ve healed up…that was a nasty spill you took. You really did remind me that “training” includes every interaction between you and your dog.

    Hi Y’all,

    Even my Human couldn’t locate the code to add to my blog…what are we missing?

    Hey, I look at my tail when I fart. It feels funny. Course I usually only fart when I’ve eaten a “no no”…and my tail gives me away!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    Great follow-up Jodi! Glad you are feeling better with your fall.

    All my dogs fart but Sherman is the only one that you can actually hear fart. He likes to walk up the stairs and toot all the way up! Leroy has the silently but deadly farts:)

    Only in dog blogger land do we get to talk about farts :) Cali farts all the time – sometimes we hear them and they aren’t too bad, other times we have to vacate the premises! (why are the silent ones always so deadly?)

    Glad you are feeling better!!

    The farts are truly overwhelming around here; sometimes all three of them are on the bed going at once. I find it amusing and horrifying all at once–and yes especially amusing when they look at their butts in surprise :)

    Reinforcing training is very important. That’s why police dogs and sniffer dogs have regularly scheduled sessions to reinforce so that the dogs can maintain their certification. I think some pet owners think once a dog learns something it’s there for life.

    Glad I checked your follow up Friday post, because I nearly missed your “The Art of a Dog Fart” post, and for some reason it sounds like a funny one. :-) Off to check it out now…

    Your week was much more interesting than mine was. :) We are still trying to get a bit of weight off Storm from that false pregnancy. By the time we do, it will be time for her breeder to try breeding her again. :)
