We are proud to be joining this week’s edition of Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.
Happy First Gotcha Day Ducky
Ducky’s first Gotcha Day went very well. I hadn’t gotten much sleep on Monday night, so I decided to keep Ducky home from daycare the whole day. We spent a good amount of time in the back yard so the dogs could get their exercise running around chasing each other and squirrels, not to mention the fresh air. During the entire day Ducky only growled at Shadow one time. I calmly put my hand around Ducky’s snout and said “none of that” while Shadow turned away from Ducky and laid down. As soon as I released my hold, Ducky went to Shadow and submissively licked her lower lip then walked away.
Vacuum Cleaner Woes
So, I did finally buy the SEBO X-4 Upright. I have been using it now for about six weeks and I must say that I am very happy with it. Once I got used to the electronic controls, the lights that flash momentarily as I use the vacuum, and the different feel of the vacuum handle and the sound it makes, I decided I had made the right choice for me. About the only thing I can think of that I would change is the way the cord is stored on the machine. While storage of the cord is basically convenient when the machine is not in use, it is a different story during use. With the Oreck, the cord pretty much stayed put no matter how much of it I unwound. I could vacuum a small area without worrying about tripping over the cord. With my SEBO, the cord unwinds with every forward or backward movement of the machine. Depending on my mood of the moment, it can be either a total pain in the rear end or just a small annoyance. Mitigating this though is the ease with which I can remove the roller brush, get the dog hair out of it, and then replace the brush. If the Oreck had been this easy to “self-serve”, I might still have the thing.
New Blog — Life With My Tailwaggers
All I can say about the new blog at this point is that I still haven’t made any progress. I have NO CLUE what I m going to do with it. Part of the problem is that I don’t understand all the ins and outs and jargon involved in creating a blog and/or website. And I haven’t had the chance to go through WordPress’s tutorials. I still have to get back to my studying. I inherited a trait from my father called procrastination. I think of these two tasks ahead of me and get suspended in time.
I am ashamed to say that Lisa over at Dogs N Pawz nominated me for a blogger award several weeks ago, but I can neither remember which one it was nor find it in my previous notifications. I offer no excuses, Lisa, for to me that would be tantamount to insulting your intelligence. So please accept my sincerest apologies and the following award for your patience with me….
