He’s absolutely gorgeous.
In that case I want to be one too!
@DJC3 You have my sympathy for your uncomfortable night. I remember those first few weeks well. I am not sure why I thought it a good idea to get 2 pups at the same time (wouldn't be without them though) I was lucky that they managed toilet training quite quickly (it was the only aspect of training that they managed with any degree of regularity) it was warm and dry so that I could have the door open and they had free access to the yard.
Your boy is so cute. I am sure that you are enjoying your new addition even though it is rather trying sometimes.
My sister in law in Germany has Charcot foot even though she doesn’t have diabetes. She is something of a head in the sand person so did nothing until the condition of her feet was horrendous. She had the first foot operated on last year, and they ‘tidied’ up the other foot so that it would be ok for the time when it came to walk with crutches. It took quite some time and about 3 intermediate mini ops to get the foot to heal. She had about 6 months in a wheelchair then crutches. She’s trying to postpone (for ever?) the op on the second foot. I was told there are apparently only 3 Charcot foot specialists/surgeons in Germany: in Munich and Hamburg that I know of, not sure about the other one.
This is definitely an awful condition. My feet are partly numb underneath- we have a foot massager that I use regularly in a desperate attempt to improve the circulation in my feet.

I haven’t posted my levels for a few days, trying not to ‘see’ them. But here they are:
Thurs. 6. Fri. 6.9. Sat 7.2. Sun 6.9 (Sat bedtime was 6.4!)
A friend put a fbk link that had lots of clever tips. Not world shattering but useful and time saving. Two that I tried today worked. 1) peel ginger with a teaspoon- less waste and it goes around all the funny bits. 2) to strip herb leaves off the stem, push the stem through a hole in a colander from the inside. All the leaves stay in the colander.
My goodness 2 at once! It’s the same as people who haven’t had a baby saying how great it would be to have twins! Twice the joy maybe but also twice the work and stress, I’m very impressed.
He’s getting pretty good at the toilet training, as you said, it’s easier because the weather has been nice the last few days here. It’d be different in the pouring rain walking round the garden for 20 mins waiting for a ‘performance’
At the moment I am gasping for air as I type - how can such an evil smell emanate from such a small body?
It's that lc food you eat and definitely oversharing
Whoops sorry! Must cut out those Jerusalem artichokes.
I remember standing under an umbrella with our dog when she was a puppy- it rained a lot in Brussels. Something to make your life easier. When he performs say a trigger word. We used ‘hurry up.’ So every time he wees, say ‘hurry up.’ They learn quickly. It will be the best thing you ever taught him when you’re standing in the rain at a motorway services and your dog is distracted by all the messages left by other dogs and you really wish he would- hurry up.
I agree. Never did quite understand where that idea came from.
That’s a brilliant tip. I remember now seeing a programme about a dog show, maybeCrufts, I can’t remember. They had a dedicated dog toilet area and this owner was saying ‘busy busy’ which was presumably the same thing, just a trigger. We will start this immediately, thank you.

Slept last night with a reading of 6.7... didn’t sleep too well... work related stress kept me awake ... anyway early morning FBG was 6.3... not too bad... and after breakfast at 6.6... looks like a slightly better day than yesterday... whatever caused those 9s and 10s yesterday... phew!!! I think i need to walk and exercise a lot... and just need to figure ways of fitting them in my daily routine.... gd day everyone
Good morning folks, 6.3 on the dice, night out at GD's end of year fashion show where the students show off there clothing designs, there's some weird and wacky minds at work out there people. There was a section called "King of Queens", I had to avert my gaze . Celebratory Chinese meal afterwards as the wife was told she got the her old job back, no starting date but they said it would be quick, well chuffed.
4.7 for me have a good day everyone
6.7 for me this morning after a bit of a restless night of sleep and a perhaps unwise choice of a curry for dinner last night ( only had about a spoonful of rice and a third of a papadum)
@trick60 Congratulations to Mrs T on the new job.
@Viv19 @DJC3 I thought mine to perform using "hurry up". It is very useful when you are in a rush.
A new pot of strips today I was hoping that they would offer up something better than the highish 5's I have been getting but no still spat out a 5.7 this morning. Next new pot I buy I will have to specifically request a pot of under 5's.
