*Where* have I BEEN?
OK, it’s spring break time here in NE Ohio, meaning that I (and some staff) are grooming 3-4 a day, bathing and caring for 40 dogs, 3 cats, 10 puppies, and 5 grown Airedales….if you can ever call an Airedale grown in the sense of responsible, mature conduct! Plus I’m getting Nicky and young Jack in show coat requiring weekly hand strip sessions to be ready for some April/May shows.
Add to that, the puppies require ever escalating amounts of liberally applied newspaper, attention, refereeing, vetting, feeding, cleaning….and the list goes on. One of my goals is to provide them with a totally new toy or experience each day for the last 10 days. The most recent examples include:
Braided rope toy 4 inches thick and 10 inches long
bowl of ice cubes
fresh wool mat
8″ dog rubber dog tire toy with rope
fresh card board box with wooden reinforcement (necessary or they would flatten it!)
and a broom…
