Wilbur will now be picked up by his family this coming weekend. Sadly, there was a death in his new family and the memorial service was Friday 4-23.
Callie and I get to enjoy the Wilbs for one more week. Wilbur is thoughtfully easing the transition by being super naughty! I now I have to keep the kitchen doors shut because he pulls everything off the counter and he ate my very favorite pair of summer shoes (while I was sitting on the sofa right above him. Note to self - don't…Continue
(sorry for posting two blogs in a row, but it's been an eventful doodle day!)
Wilbur, aka "the Wilbs", aka Callie's partner in crime will be leaving us next weekend. His new mommy and daddy live in Ohio, and are driving down to come and take him home.
I'm really excited for Wilbs - his new folks are an engaged couple in their mid-50s. They have an 8 year old corgi named Gryffyn and they recently lost their silver standard poodle name Clay (Clay and Wilbur look…Continue
One year ago, I got the call from the Dekalb Animal Shelter telling me that I could pick Callie (then named Pen 310) up. The second I got that call, I grabbed my purse and left the office, so anxious to have her with me. I actually took her straight back to the office, so that everyone could meet my adorable new furry monster (and because I didn't want to get fired). I was in love. Before the close of business that day, most of my office had fallen under her spell (we stopped being able to…Continue
Callie went to the vet on saturday to get her shots and yearly exam. I took Wilbur along to weigh him (ok fine, to show him off!). Since I got Wilbur, he has only gained 3 lbs. Callie on the other hand has gained 4 lbs.
Not so good. She is officially overweight.
I've tried feeding them separately and that doesn't seem to work. If anything, Callie is MORE active with Wilbur around.
I'm going back to trying separate feedings and hope for the best. I…Continue
Wilbur got neutered this past Thursday, and was pretty mopey until Saturday morning (evidently, me making him a bunch of chicken didn't really make up for me having his testicles removed!). We had a pretty normal weekend, with one exception...Wilbur figured out how to break out of the kitchen. To be fair, it is closed with french doors and a few good solid jumps will open it. Wilbs had just not attempted this previously. He's been such a good boy, that I really didn't fret over it too much.…Continue
Spring has officially sprung here in the ATL. Here are some highlights of the good: It is truly gorgeous...bright green grass, flowering trees, and brilliant yellow forsythia (a favorite of mine) everywhere you look. Thirsty Dog Tavern (a bar where you can bring your dog) has at long last opened and I can't wait to take Callie...they will have milkbone hunts and a kibble menu (how cute is that?). The weather has been lovely, and Callie, Wilbur, and I have been going on marathon walks…Continue
