Then I want to report that I upgraded the godaddy account, so there will be some changes to the Along Came Sampson website, I think the biggest change will be that the blog will be on that website which will make it much easier for me to promote! I will keep you update with the progress of the change and of course let you know once it is up and running!
In the meantime those business cards I ordered have been shipped and were scheduled to arrive on Thursday, but due to the weather we have been having, I’m not counting on it. As long as they get here before the 11th I am ok.
So I wanted to tell you about Delilah, yesterday morning she took a half-eaten bag of chips off the table on the sofa and took them into the bedroom and started tearing apart the bag, luckily for me she started with the bag and NOT the chip clip! Naturally she is not quiet so I heard it and went in and took the bag away and made her go in her crate for a few minutes. I wasn’t really mad because I failed, she didn’t. I should have known better but still I needed to let her know that I don’t want her doing that.
Flash forward to last night, I let Delilah outside (we have a fenced in backyard so thankfully I don’t have to take them out.) She had been out a while, (which should have been my first clue) when I heard a noise at the front door. At first I ignored it, but I heard it a second time so I said to Chet what’s that? He said, is Delilah out? I said, yes but she’s in the back and then I opened the front door and there she was! So he went out to check and he had been using the snowblower to try to make room for the new snow we were getting and he inadvertently left one of the gates open! This concerned me, but also made me very proud of Delilah because she really could have taken off. Oh I’m quite sure she left the yard, but considering the dogs that have challenged her, and the enticement of the trails at the top of the street, it really could have been a sleepless night for me.
I did want to let you know of one thing, some people (me being one of them) don’t like to keep the “going out” collars on the dogs all the time. For one thing they are noisy as all get out as they must have their rabies tag and their town license clinking around on them and two, they are so big I like to give the dogs a break. I picked up (my friend Jo-Anne gave me the idea) this very small collars that slip over their necks. They have one little tag (with a silencer on it) that has their name on one side and my name and cell phone number on the other. This way if they ever get out of the yard and someone finds them or they are picked pu by the pound, all their information is readily available. If you don’t have a tag with that kind of information on it for your pet, I highly recommend purchasing one. You can make them at most pet stores for less than $10. A small price to pay for the safe return of your pet.
