You could come up and let her run her energy out with yoshi XD

AHHHH that's Keeva tonight. Bark at you for Skittles, jump on the table, mob the cat, find a toy, shake it at you, put it in your lap. Did you see that I put a toy in your lap? Would you like to do something about that? No. I'll bark some more.

I'm the same as a you. It rarely bothers me but we had a super busy day at work and I'm just wiped.

I put her bark collar and put her in her crate with a frozen Kong.

Took Zander out to potty. Neighbors + dog was out. He decided that was the perfect time to not listen to a word I said. Making me look like an idiot. Sigh. Yep. Figures.

Also, Rex/Ketchup hates the rain (not even storms, it's not thundering) so he's being clingy/pacing/can't settle. He had me really scared though until I remember that his family told me he hates rain. I thought he was sick!

He just took some Benadryl for his allergies so hopefully that will make a little drowsy too and help him settle. Cuz I feel bad for him but he's also annoying me.

I miss my girl. =< I miss her so much. I have pictures of Auggie and Payton on the board at my new job and I didn't bring any of Pepper because looking at her pictures makes me so sad. I want to move into my house, I want to bring her home. It's just not fair.

Give it some time! I was a little hesitant at first but it gets better! How many hours do you work? My days are split up (2hrs in the morning, 3 in the evening) so it makes things a lot easier when I have some time away during the day. If it were all at once itd be a little harder to deal with I think. There's a lot of crazy to deal with lol!

Things lately have been uber stressful. Right now I am staying in Las Vegas and finishing work until Oct 31 and living on a cot with two dog beds, three crates, and bare essentials of clothing and supplies. I have no treadmill, it's getting colder and last nights swim party after work left Shamoo walking funny and shaking violently, I'm juggling four dogs by myself and even my mild mannered one is starting to get antsy. This was easier with Denis because he really helps balance the exercise demands and I miss him something fierce. I suddenly wish I had dog park appropriate dogs, or a better less crowded park to play ball at. I took Sloan and Arnold to an agility class last night and the teacher never showed up. I was so upset. My poor dogs.

Denis is in Oregon sleeping on an air matress at a friends apartment starting work and looking at houses in his down time. He's 45 minutes from work and riding his motorcycle in 40 degrees. Of course it gets better, it's supposed to start raining monday and not stop until next summer.

The housing market is rough where we're looking, everything is being snatched up and we've now seen two illegal sales, two homes bought up from under us, and last night he went to see a house with our realtor only to find the house had been sold and it wasn't even updated on the mls yet.

I have a phone interview today and I am breeching the topic of renting the garage/extra room at my brothers small house. We feel certain we'll find a home with more time but we need a place to stay to buy more time and even with searching high and low we're not finding any options of short term housing that will allow the dogs. The malinois can squeak by in some places for a fee and legally speaking Arnold is exempt but Shamoo is neither exempt, "non-aggressive" in breed, nor easy to hide. So, big brother to the rescue, we hope. A few months, a non-self employeed job for me, and maybe we'll finally find a place.

In an effort to destress I'm shopping. Shamoo has two PJs on the way and I bought the boys two coats today. I'm now looking for warm wear for Sloan and maybe even some stupid fun rain gear for everyone.

This will be worth it. This will be worth it. This will be worth it. Breathe & repeat.
