I must apologise for my lack of good posts/blogging lately. I've just transferred from my trusty Windows Laptop to the famous Apple Mac and Oh My Goodness, I never thought they could be so different haha. I'm still trying to figure out where I save pictures from and so many other things, however I'm definitely improving! Has anyone else got a Mac with a few tips to share to a newbie?? haha.
Anywho's, a blog post wouldn't be much without talking about Jess and Molly so here's a little update on the cuties -
Jess got training with a little cat today, I'm actually thinking she'd be really good at co-existing with a kitty as she doesn't seem fazed by them at all. Although that could be different if it was in her house.
We're still working on the car stuff, we now have a game where she's in the car and I'm sat outside throwing treats in and she will look in the car for it, it seems to make her relax more there and I'm hoping things like that + the thunder shirt are going to make her a little less stressed/vocal when we're driving!
Molly saw a JRT today in her training, she kind of freaked out a little (this is the breed of dog that bady attacked her in January and she can be very on edge when they're around). She was fine after a few minutes and would listen to my commands, but she never took her eye of that little dog! We're going to work on that, I hate seeing her stressed but I can't take her out in the hope we don't see a certain breed of dog so we need to work on it.
We've also started on a new type of food. I'm not sure I've ever mentioned it here but one of my biggest fears are my girls developing bloat (this is what can kill your dogs in less than 6 hours and knowing the symptoms is life & death). You can probably call me paranoid about it and yes, I have symptoms files saved on my old laptop (crackers I know). The one thing that was really interesting that I heard was it saying that a dog on a high protein diet very rarely gets it, I wasn't happy with standard dog food tins so found a 100% mince meat in various flavours (beef, chicken etc) all I have to do is add other bits to make it a meal, yesterday they had mince with spinach, and it gives recommendations of things to add, such as apples, rice etc.
I'm hoping with the new diet I don't have to worry about them not have a more meaty diet. It's fairly cheap too (I can't remember the brand but will find it for another post).
Last part of my ramble, I've noticed a few of my favourite doggie bloggers do a wordless Wednesday post, I'm thinking of doing the same starting next week to make me a more consistent blogger (& we all know I take too many pictures of J&M haha).
Sorry for the no picture post today... I'm reading up on the Mac as we speak so shouldn't be too long before I figure out what I'm doing!
