Wiley and I have had a lovely week partaking in the hospitality of my parents. We are both enjoying the company, warm house and endless selection of delicious food items in the pantry and fridge. Wiley in particular appreciates sharing all of Toby’s, (my parents dog), treats.
Walks: On our free mornings Wiley and I have been exploring a little further afield on our walks. We got a little lost a couple of times but I eventually figured out where we were and managed to get us back home.
A couple of mornings we had the good fortune of meeting up with our dog walker friends which meant Wiley could enjoy regular off lead runs with his cocker spiel and standard poodle pals.
Work: Unfortunately I didn’t get as much work done as I wanted last week. I did make some progress on the volunteer program and caught up on a couple of routine admin tasks but not everything on my to do list was crossed off.
Consequently I have a busy week ahead at work. My main focus will be on the final planning of the Personal Safety Course. The first session is on next Saturday. I can’t wait, I am particularly looking forward to learning some blocks and punches and maybe even flooring any potential aggressors.
Our new home: Not a great deal of progress made in the purchasing of our new home. I had a building and pest inspection performed on Friday. I should get the reports early next week. Then we can move forward to exchange. As the property is currently vacant I am still optimistic Wiley and I will be able to move in sometime in August.
I am more confused than ever on what type of flooring is best for Wiley. There is lots of contradictory information out there and what seems best for ease of cleaning and being hard wearing is not necessarily the best for Wiley’s joints. Oh well I still have a couple of weeks to do more research before making a final decision.
Other Highlights: Last night Wiley and I were invited to a party at a friends house to celebrate their birthday. It was a great evening with delicious food and wonderful company. I was able to catch up with some old friends as well as meeting some lovely new ones. Wiley wasn’t short of doggy company as there were three other beautiful dogs at the party, all of whom he knows and likes. I think he was disappointed that no one dropped any food on the floor at least not close enough so he could pick it up but other than that I am sure he enjoyed himself as much as I did.
