Last night Bro called me from Iqualuit and told me that the neighbour’s dog had a seizure that day. He and Toby were fairly exposed to one another (especially when one of them escaped from their ropes) and it got me a bit worried for Toby. Of course at this point there’s no telling what could have been the cause and since there’s no vet here they have to fly him down to Winnipeg to have him checked out. I really hope he’s ok and that whatever caused the seizure isn’t contagious.
Toby spent a lot of time with me in the house yesterday. He’s getting much better at behaving inside which makes me happy. I think he’s getting more used to being out and around so it’s getting to be more routine and boring, giving him less reason to go crazy. It tends to tire him out a bit more too and he’s generally quieter through the night… although he does tend to get fidgety at some points. One thing that he kept doing while he was in the house was eat the dirt from one of my plants. Not only did that annoy me but it also made a mess as he’d leave little trails of dirt all along the living room carpet. So Mr. Plant has been relocated to the bedroom and although the living room looks a little barer than it did before, the bedroom looks really nice with the plant there and it’s on top of a table out of puppy reach… I hope.
I’ve been thinking about my journals and how I’ve been really consistent with them using the computer instead of writing. I’m thinking that’s because I can type so much faster than I write. Although I like the idea of writing things down I find that I get frustrated because I can’t keep up with my thoughts when writing whereas I can keep up much better when typing. So I’m thinking that I’m just going to get some duotangs and start printing off my entries (which I’m doing already) and instead of cutting and pasting them into an actual journal I’ll put them directly into the duotangs. I’m sure I can find another use for the extra journals that I have. Right now I’m just finding it really time consuming trying to cut and paste everything since I seem to write more than I paste!
