Busy Busy

It's been a hectic week so far. A phone interview every day so far, Lots of errands and chores. My place smells like Smokey's pee, but my new fancy schmansy steam cleaner will be here today, along with some other stuff like my new video card and even a little something for myself from eBay. The UPS guy and mail carriers already know me.

Spot is doing good on her anxiety meds. I've woke up a couple times to find her on my bed, trying to steal the blankets. And she doesn't seem as fearful. I was thinking of taking her for a walk in the local park just to start.

I'm starting to think Smokey might be incontinent. He is 11 years old. Right when Spot stops having accidents, Smokey starts. His right eye is also getting worse, so he's next to the doggy doctor. I do know that he's had injuries to both eyes fighting with his mortal enemy, Lenny, several years ago. So, they had told me to expect something like this.

All things considered, life is good. It's still hard to decide between taking a full time job or just getting more clients and staying self employed, but you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, so I've been putting some resumes out there.


  1. If I might make a suggestion, when my male chi-mix became incontinent I bought a pack of these EZWhelp belly bands: and they were better than I could have hoped for.

    Inexpensive, they stay in place without shifting, they're soft and thin enough that he didn't mind wearing them, and I was flabbergasted at how absorbent they are. People recommend putting a thin maxi-pad in them as a liner, but I found I never even needed to do that, they were reliable enough on their own. They kept him dry and comfortable and never leaked at all (and trust me, my little guy really gave them a workout.)

    A pack of 8 gives you enough that you can swap them out every few hours, wash them in the sink, and have them drying on the line in time for the next rotation.

    They were an absolute lifesaver for me, my rugs, and my furniture!

    1. I will look into those, thanks! I'm not 100% sure that's the problem yet. He has a history of acting out, and if it's behavior, then I need to get to the bottom of it. But he's definitely not getting any younger.
