You might have realised it by now. This blog has taken a turn. I decided to quit waiting to try out the things that I want to do when I am semi-retired. I am going to try some things out now (like dog fostering). Hopefully it won't affect my mortgage payoff plan too much, maybe extend it by a month or two. If my renters pay their rent tomorrow like they promised, I will still be on track to pay off my mortgage in one year and three months. That is if I can keep my new hobby expenses in check.
Since I didn't have my kennel and doggie door set up and didn't have anyone to walk Jojo at noon today, I decided to bring her to work with me. That was interesting. The other people at the office loved her and wanted her to run around the office but I kept my doors closed for most of the day so that she wouldn't have any accidents out of my site. She did have a couple accidents when people came in and she escaped but only I noticed and cleaned them up quickly. She is fine in my RV when I walk her 6 times a day but the office was too much new territory. I still walked her 4 times at work but it wasn't enough.
Getting a puppy is a great diet plan. I am too busy to snack and I have to go for multiple walks. I am assuming this hectic schedule will calm down when the kennel is finished. Oh ya, I miss my sleep too. She woke me up at 5:30am. I used to sleep 'til 6:45. Those days are gone.
I had to go to Petco after work. This is what happens when I am unprepared. I needed a few things and since I had Jojo with me I had to go somewhere that she could go too. I've never taken a dog in Petco before. It was fun. Everyone thought she was very cute. She is very friendly. The cashier asked if she was a rescue and gave me 10% off. That was nice because everything is more expensive there. I spent another $42 on a non-spillable water dish, water bottle for the crate, a collar, and I let Jojo pick out some toys that were on clearance. I don't think she had ever heard a squeaky toy before. She was confused at first but now her squeaky lion is her favorite. She's asleep now which means I should go to bed early because she'll be getting up at the crack of dawn again.
