How wonderful that my day off is a rainy and wet Saturday. Luckily, Ferguson was able to do some running and get a long walk in before it got too bad, so hopefully he's out for the day.
I'm not totally off, I suppose, as I'm petsitting for Eric's mom while they're out of town, so a few times a day, I take the 20 minute drive over to their house in the country to care for Ella, their dog, and Gracie and Hershey Kiss, their two very friendly adolescent cats. What's funny is that the cats seem to be more interested in me than Ella, who is content after she's let out and eats her meal. So, today, I'll venture on over again around dinner time. Maybe the rain will clear up by then.
Ferguson has been doing better on his alone training, and has been left for half an hour without complaint. At least we didn't have to start back at square one again with 10 seconds. Urg.
As I've been sitting here browsing the Internet, I couldn't help but notice my boy over there on his makeshift bed of a few old pillows with a blanket laid on top. Not all of him fits on it, and only half of him looks comfortable. Additionally, the pillows sag the more he sits on them, and probably provides little support. So, because I love him just oh so much, I splurged a bit and bought him this new fancy orthopedic bed for a nice price of $50.
Granted, Ferguson does have two "real" beds. But one is in his wire crate and has deflated a considerable amount (it was $15 at Aldie), and the other is upstairs and is a round bed fleece bed that looks like this:
...yes, I do see the clear plain solution to this problem. Let's wait and see HOW much he likes it first...
