morning routine

The morning routine. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait for daddy to get up. So they can have a handful of cheerios! Misty tends to do a lot of crying at the door, while Oreo circles.

Can you sense I'm running out of things to blog about? Ugh!!!!

Oreo goes in for his last laser treatment this afternoon. I hate to jinx anything, but I feel like he has shown a lot of improvement the past few days. Of course, Oreo thinks he is completely fine and wants to get back to business as usual. That's what scares me.

Misty is growing restless herself. She has been trying to entice Oreo into some wrestling matches.

Luckily, our yard is one fourth ice rink, one fourth mud pit, one fourth lake, one fourth snow. Not real conducive to much playing of any kind. Still, it is so warm, I just want to be outside.

Students seem to be having a bit of spring fever as well. The number of suspensions this week must be a record high! I admit, I counted the number of class days until final exams start....59, including today.

Good luck with the laser treatment today and I hope that Oreo is right about being completely fine so that the long stretch of inactivity and worry will finally be over!

Dawn said...

Oh I hope that Oreo is getting better! Poor everyone at your house!

Diana said...

Lol, it must be going around. The number of in school suspension at my school took off starting Friday. When I came back to school and looked at my email I was shock. "what have these kids been doing?" And its still 4 more weeks until spring break. Diana

Wow. What a load of suspensions!

I'm glad Oreo is getting better :) I bet he can't wait to have wrestling matches with Misty

You're in a tough spot! With the weather so nice, you must want to walk and walk and walk - but Oreo needs to recoup, and there's mud and ice everywhere - must be hard!

I remember being in school during the warm weather. Something just kind of comes over the students and they turn into animals who want to break out and enjoy the nice temps.

Good luck at the treatment today I bet he has had a lot of improvement, especially if you are noticing. Did you see there is an article in Clean run, the one that came yesterday....about starting back after an injury--very cool it sounds like you are going to have a great vet to guide you!

AC said...

Oh no, the end-of-year countdown! I hope both you and your students are able to hang in there.

Great morning routine pictures. I love how routine dogs become and how they wait so anxiously for the small stuff...I bet Cheerios only has that kind of power on dogs!

Fingers crossed for a good last therapy session and for a return to activity for Oreo.

Awww, how cute they are waiting for daddy to get up. The students at my daughters school are very unruly this week. Do you suppose it really is spring fever? Good luck with Oreo's treatment this week. Helen

Oh - I'm beginning to know exactly how you're feeling about Oreo coz Honey injured herslef last weekend on a playdate with other younger Danes (haven't blogged about it yet - am always a couple of weeks behind in Honey's life - - too many things to blog about!) and anyway, the vet has prescribed 6 weeks rest! AAAAAaaaararrrrggghhh!! So only gentle walks - no running or jumping and definitely no playing. So I think I'm going to be clicker training a lot of new tricks!

Am glad you enjoyed our latest video. I actually got inspired by your video of the ball in the hoop - would love to try that with Honey but the problem is finding a hoop tall enough - without buying a real one! :0)

Have you tried teaching "pull up the covers"? That's a really cute trick that I started teachign Honey back in Auckland but haven't followed it up since. Another work in progress - will post our video of that soon. But that's good coz the dog has to lie down to do it so no jumping around and it's such a cute trick - you ask the dog "Are you cold?" or similar and the dog reaches over and pulls the blanket up to cover itself! :-)
