Worms on my Bed

It’s been raining non-stop for days and my yard is flooded.  When this happens, worms come out of the ground and end up on our patio.

I woke up this morning and sent my dogs out for their first bathroom break of the day.  I go about my business and open the door for them a few minutes later.  I really wasn’t paying much attention when they came back into the house.  Like I said, I just woke up and wasn’t completely alert.

I went to get my phone and Baby Ben is on my bed with tons of worms stuck in his fur.  Apparently, he thought it would be a good idea to roll around in the worms and then decided to take a nap on my bed.

Well, I am alert now!

It’s a good thing he’s cute, or I would have to trade him in for a goldfish.


Canine Good Citizenship


This book will teach you everything you need to know to get your dog ready to pass the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Test.  While I was reading it, I came across a few interesting ideas that I wanted to share.

  • Use pleasant experiences, such as inducing your dog to sit with a treat.
  • The most important benefit of training your dog is safety.
  • Dogs are social animals, and one of the cruelest forms of punishment is to deprive them of the opportunity to interact with family members.
  •  Well-behaved dogs control their impulses around others and listen to their owners, making the dogs a pleasure to be around.
