This morning Theo received his last set of his main vaccinations (minus rabies). Yay! I can now take Theo to dog parks and dog beaches and other places where he can roam free with his kind. Now the dog/dog socialization can really take place. He'll probably be a bit lethargic today from the shots, but I'll definitely try and take him to the dog park by my house tomorrow. I'm very excited! I hope he plays nicely with the other dogs...or rather, I hope the other dogs place nicely with him! He is a 'fraidy-dog after all.
In other Theo news, and this should teach me never to brag about how good he is again, Theo learned to chew on the wall this weekend. While I was in the room, no less! The nerve! Theo likes to chew his bed. I'd prefer he chew his toys, but I'll take it over my hands or something worse: the walls. And when he chews his bed, he likes to drag it all over the room. So there he was, chewing on his bed like a good little puppy. A few minutes later, after he had started playing with something else, I went to move his bed back to its normal spot. That's when I saw it. He had chewed up the baseboard that was next to where his bed had been! Ack! At some point he moved his chewing from his bed to the wall and I was none the wiser! What a tricky, tricky boy. Bad dog!
I sprayed half a bottle of bitter apple on the spot (which now looks terrible, since he chewed off the paint), and now I can only pray that it's a one time offense. So far he hasn't gone back for more, thank goodness. I'll just have to start watching him more closely. *sigh*
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
