On Thursday, May 13th Bill was up at 6 and tended to Gibbs who was whining to get out. He’d been out at 4:30 too and piddled. So, by 6:30, I also got up and joined the family fun downstairs. The little guy was in full playtime mode and chased Bill’s slippers, barking in his little baby yips. 😊 He only seems to bark when playing which is good and allowed. He has really started to follow us around and whines temporarily when one of us leaves the room. A wee little shadow.🐕

Bill went out to Black Beauty and I took Gibbs back out for more playtime. He piddled once more and when Daddy left, we came inside. He ran around a bit more and then plopped in his bed. I had my tea and we went outside to play after a couple of hours of him sleeping. When we were outside, I began training him with tiny little bits of wiener. He likes them, a lot, so we seemed to make some progress. 😊 He soon recognized that if I bent over with a fisted hand and called him to 'come' that he would get a treat.

Getting into our patio space too often
Nobody could be happier than me when he went to a familiar spot and had a good poop. Phew! I know his tummy upset could happen again and when our blogger friend suggested that maybe the rawhide bones were making him sick, I’m now wondering where they were made. I’ll check it out next time I’m at Foodland but in the meantime will remove the one he chews on. I was outside later with Gibbs and Bill had suggested putting him on our long rope leash for when we are busy doing things and can’t keep an eye on him.

It was a good idea so I tried it for about 30 minutes or so. He’s thinking ‘what the??’ I can tell, but he’ll get used to it, as Clemson did. It is quite long and other than getting caught around table and chair legs, he has a lot of leeway and I’ll be keeping an eye on him. While outside, I chatted back and forth with my little sister who had some good suggestions for Gibbs’ upset tummy too. I’m always open to hear them. Now I wonder about the wieners but that was a suggestion from the breeder too.
The weather today is gorgeous! We reached 17C/63F, feeling a few degrees cooler when the white fluffy clouds moved over the sun. At least they were far and few between so it was very comfortable sitting outside with my book around 2.
After Gibbs had a piddle, a run around and a poop, I put him inside and I walked down to get the mail. A thank you from Marie, the Norwex consultant, for attending Gayle’s party with a small Enviro/Window cloth. Nice!
A few flowers in my gardens
Hostas are slow this year
A variety of poppies Can't remember the name of these
I kept the wrong tag
Mini daffodils in the background These little flowers along the fence line

I had my shower knowing Gibbs was safe and sleeping in his bed, tired right out. 😊 The book I’m reading is James Patterson’s and it is 2 books in one. Quick reads. I made my tea before 4 and caught up on my post before settling back in my chair. I’ve had a few queries about any after effects from the vaccination but other than a tender arm in the area for a while this morning, I have nothing to report.
It was a bit of a challenge last night falling asleep in a different position so as not to lay on my left upper arm but I slept well and woke up feeling no different. Hopefully our 2nd jab will be no worse. No regrets here at all. Bill got home between 4:30 and 5 and after special little greetings from Gibbs, he got changed out of his work clothes. After having such a great day, Gibbs had two accidents on the carpet. He was full of piddle because went right out and went again. LOL
Bill went out with him while I prepared pancakes and sausage for supper. It was cute watching Gibbs bark and chase around after his Daddy. He doesn’t seem to have favourite. I discovered that there was barely enough Bisquick to mix Bill’s batter but added a bit of flour to make it work. For mine, I mixed up a batch of Keto almond flour batter. Mine were thicker and made more than his so he helped me finish them off. We had mini sausages alongside.
Bill opted for a piece of peanut butter pie and that topped the meal off nicely. We cleaned the dishes up; Bill made his lunch and then went for his shower. The sky was solid blue without any clouds and at 7:30, it was still a balmy 14C/60F. This was a beautiful spring day and it felt great to be outside for a lot of the day. Gibbs thinks so too. I enjoyed my day off.
