Doggy Countdown – Great granddog

Wow I’ve really gotten back in to the swing of things, now that the holidays are over! I got to go back to Saavi today to resume my workouts. I was really worried that Lisa would be mad at me for not doing well at home. I worked out at home that first week and then just kinda purposely forgot lol. It’s so different when you’re alone with no one saying “it only hurts for a minute, keep going!” whenever you give a grunt haha! But she wasn’t mad, and said she slacked too, and that it’s good to take a break, renews the excitement, and she’s glad I was excited to start again. so I worked hard today and it felt great! My shoes felt great on the treadmill. It was a ton of fun telling people I’m getting my dog next month. Yay for routine haha!

I just got caught up with emails and blog comments and am writing this quickly and then jumping in the shower to hit a meeting with Kevin. Haven’t seen him in awhile. I’m still talking to the seller of the ring. A size 6 won’t be available for 30-45 days and she can’t guarntee price, so I’m gonna get the size 7 now if she has it for the same price and just have it sized. The seller of the rain parka emailed to say they sold out of navy and would I like forest. I like green better so she’s sending that tomorrow. My Vittles Valut 2 and food bowls have shipped, yay! The stuff for my bathroom will most likely be here tomorrow, except for my pictures, which haven’t shipped.

I called Gamma when I got home and we talked for a bit and then she said she forgot to tell me something earlier. She said, “I saw a commercial this morning and there was a dog laying on a mattress and the dog got up and the mattress has memory! And it has a cover that can be washed!” I’m like, “Oh that sounds really cool.” She’s like “Yeah I think a dog deserves to be comfortable. I wish I had ordered it. If I see it again I’ll order it.” I laughed and said, “Spoiling your great granddog already?” She laughed hard at that hehehe! I just thought that was so cute, after her worrying about dog poop yesterday haha! Now she wants to buy my dog a memory foam dog bed hehe!!

43 days!!

  1. That is really nice that you have gotten back to your workouts. And yes, working out at home is often hard because no-one is there to push ya. I know that I will be fighting that with my workouts.

  2. Hahahah your dog will be the pampered pooch.

    Man you’re gonna have a whole cheering squad at Savi. It’ll be great.

  3. That’s so sweet about your gamma wanting the dog to be comfortable!! Glad you’re back to your workouts–it makes a world of difference.

    Lori, I’ll push ya 😉

    Yesterday when I was waiting for my ride, I heard the slightest tinkle of tags and new a guide dog was near. Then someone said hello to the director and I knew it was a guide dog. I still haven’t met her dog though. Someday! I think there are 2 guide dogs at Saavi on a regular basis, and I think there’s one client with one that’s there, so my pooch will have some friends.

    I’m hurtin today from the workout, but it feels gooood! =D

  5. Oh, once you have a woof, you’ll know exactly where all the guide dogs are, hahaha!
