For those new to the blog, my follow-up Friday provides me with an opportunity to update or revise a post from the previous week.
You know sometimes you post about something and you need an update but it doesn’t warrant a whole blog. Or sometimes someone made a comment that really resonated with you. Yup, Follow-Up Friday baby!
Hot Car = Dead Dog – Author’s Note
Your comments gave me so very many ideas, I just don’t know where to begin.
Julie over at The Daily Dog Blog made an excellent poster, “When is it too hot for your dog.” This poster has lots of great information on it and Julie has made it easy to print off. I made about 10 copies that I intend to put in my car, just in case. I also will be stopping at the Dollar Store in the next few days to pick up some thermometers like Jodi Chick suggested to have on hand should I come across a dog in a car.
I did have a thought about making a video but I’m going to need a bit of help on it. Can any of you who do video-editing suggest an inexpensive program I could use to edit video?
And rest assured it does not require me locking a dog in a car!
WTF Wednesday – Author’s Note
To answer a couple of questions left in the comments.
1) I am 99% sure Hubby does NOT read this blog. (There is of course always the tiniest chance he will, but I won’t hold my breath.)
2) Delilah does NOT sleep with an eye mask. Sampson however will. Once I put one on him and left the room and a short time later he came out without it. When he was done sleeping he just took it off. LOL I love that dog.
It Won’t Kill Them To Miss A Day – Author’s Note
Some of you agreed with Mr. Reluctant in the comments, don’t worry I don’t hold it against you.
I will say that knowing my dogs, I know how much their daily walk means to them. The other night when we walked around the block Mr. Reluctant looked at Sampson and said, “Look how happy he is to be out walking.”
With that being said, there are certain times such as weather or time constraints when a walk just isn’t possible. In that instance, it is my job as the caregiver to provide them with something stimulating which will help them release their pent-up energy.
This is especially true with Delilah, I’ve found the better exercised she is, the better behaved she is as well.
Despite the heat, we will manage to exercise the dogs, whether it be in physically or mentally.
That’s it for us, so how was your week?
