So Much To Do

I think I know why the little dog was orphaned. He's a marker. I find a new puddle every day. Not much I can do about that since I am gone up to 11 hours a day. I'm just glad I don't have carpet. He is definitely not going to come in the RV. It is wall to wall carpet. I hear him barking his little head off right now. I'm glad he has settled in. Now he can drive me crazy. He's very cute though. He jumps in to my lap and wiggles around to get petted and curls up next to me on the bed at night. He is a fun change from the big dogs.

Tomorrow I am taking my Shepherd mix to an adoption event and on Sunday the dog trainer is coming out for an hour of training. Those are all of the dog chores for the weekend...along with the usual walking, cleaning, playing, feeding, etc.... Maybe I will have time to work on the plumbing. I am very close to getting a sink hooked up again. I just need to cut a hole in the counter top so that the sink can sit in it and then cut a bigger hole in the wall so that the drain can go outside. I am thinking about dragging my giant flower pot, which is currently by my RV, over to the drain so that I can use the water to grow something. I would really love a dwarf fruit tree but I'm not sure yet. Once I plant it in that pot it will be very hard to move again. I might just stick with flowers. And forget tomatoes and squash like last year, after 3 years of failure, vegetables are too disappointing.

Have you tried growing peppers? They are very forgiving. Even I could grow them last year.

Good luck with the pups this weekend. And the sink.

People have very good luck with peppers here. Only one problem, I don't like peppers.

Maybe the dog trainer has some advice for 'drying up' the little dog. Could be self confidence issues or something.
I would go for flowers. I think the pot doesnt have enough space for fruit tree roots.
Enjoy your weekend

Lizzie, I will ask the trainer. I know of 2 remedies but they won't work if I'm gone all day.

There are some small dwarf fruit tree varieties that might work but fruit might attract more vermin. And vermin attract snakes. Sounds like a bad idea!
