To The Park

Earlier this evening, before it got dark, I took Gabi to the park along with my parents. My dad drove us there. It’s a neighbourhood play park with a tennis court.  It was her first walk in weeks. There were some other small dogs. She wanted to jump into my arms a few times but I just said no (because of my fractured left wrist).

At some point two Scotties ran up to hear and she freaked out and jumped up into my arm. Likely it was on my right side and I just held her in  my right arm until they left.  At some point a miniature pincher ran up to us and caught me  by surprise. So I said “Hey” and the owner recalled him. Gabi was a bit nervous at times, but i think she enjoyed her off-leash walk.

It seems like she hasn’t eaten that much the past day or so, but she seems okay and I think she’s still eating, so I’ll just keep an eye on her.

Gabi is sleeping under my duvet at the moment. It looks like she is smiling.


A Bit Frustrated

Gabi hasn’t gone for a walk in ages. I have a fractured wrist at the moment I can’t drive her to the park for off-lead walks and shes a bit scared to go out on a leash to walk ont the streets. On the streets she often wants to turn aorond ands go home when we are only two or three houses around the block If there is traffic or other dogs bark at her, she wants to go home. When another dog approaches, she jumps into my arms and I can’t handle that right now.

She’s been frustrated as well and she’s acting out a bit.  Like she chewed on the wood from the kitchen cabinets skirting….  It’s making her grandma mad.

I also need to give her a bath and get her nails cut.  I’ll see I’ve I can take her for grooming this week… though we normally just bath her at home so I don’t know how it will go. It’s and extra stress. I love her  so much, but she’s bit of a handful right now. It hope this time will pass really quickly.
