But enough about me....Sophie goes in to get spayed next week and I have been using this as a learning time for my siblings since they are upset that Sophie will not have puppies. I explained that people should only breed dogs if they are really really good dogs and they get the checked out for any problems that they might pass onto their puppies. Since Sophie doesn't have a very good personality ok maybe too much personality especially some traits that you wouldn't want to pass down, as well as problems with both her back knees. They understand that you wouldn't want to pass these things down and that there are tons of puppies already in shelters and rescues. I hope that explaining these things to them will help them to continue these lessons on their own.
Koda is really in need of a B-A-T-H and I really do not want to do it at home. Hopefully I get some free time to take him back to the dog wash place soon. We have really been noticing more white popping up around his cheeks, a sign that he is getting older. He still acts like a puppy and regularily gets excited playing by himself. He throws his rope, ball and snow, while rolling around and running all over the place. His personality hasn't changed at all and he still gets happy when we come home or wake up or return from the bathroom. At 7 in May he still had lots of good years left but I do worry about what I will do when the time comes.
Jack is Jack I wonder sometimes what his IQ would be if we tested it. We ran out of cat food the other day and since he eats dog food we put it in his dish until we could drive to the pet store. He was not pleased with this and somehow knew that it wasn't cat food in his dish and kept meowing and taking us down to his dish. Maybe he checked all the dishes and realized they all tasted the same, but he baffles me.
