Friday Snippets – 10/11/19

It is gloriously chilly today. It was raining this morning, but Stanley the Brave decided to go out anyway and do his thing. Good boy! It’s only 51 degrees right now and that’s a huge change for S. Texas.

I’m wearing one of my Halloween sweaters and it’s too big. Isn’t that wonderful? I stepped on the scale this morning and I’m down another two pounds. Yay me! (Modesty doesn’t show it’s pretty little head when it’s weight loss we’re talking about.)

Stanley has categorically refused to eat his Dr. Harvey’s, so we’ve been having battles for the past week. Last night I went to Dog Food Advisor and looked up the best canned dog foods and ordered two different types. I just want him to eat something. Yesterday, he finally ate some chicken along with Dr. Tim’s Weight Control kibble. Have I mentioned how much money I’ve spent on dog food in the past year? Stanley will go four weeks on something, then decide that’s it, no more. Rolling my eyes here.

I think I’ve created a monster with the electronic thermometer. He loves following the laser dot and will race through the house like a dervish trying to catch it. He wants to play all the time and goes to sit where I keep the thermometer and whines. In fact, he’d rather play than eat. However, it’s excellent exercise, so I keep playing.

I thought I would finish the book today, but I have one pivotal scene to write. I’ll either do it today or Sunday since my son will be here tomorrow. Bummer. However, I’m only human – a fact I have to remember from time to time. 🙂

Oh, and Stanley is definitely a Dog TV addict. Every night I turn on the TV and he watches and barks. Rolling my eyes, part two.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, that the weather is wonderful, and that all your pets eat their food. 🙂

  1. I also get desperate to find something my dogs like. My last really successful one was the puppy buffet. Big flat plate. Pro Plan Freshpet, cottage cheese, chicken, hard boiled egg, Cesar. They liked the variety and always prefer flat plates. Don’t always have all that variety, but sometimes pets like a big change of pace too.
    Oh. When you rescue a little previously unwanted creature, it takes about two weeks for him/her to discover that they now own a house and a person and they are in charge.

  2. Well I wanted rain but I didn’t want it to be this chilly. Brrrr
    Daisy does the same thing that Stanley does. She tires of every dog food I’ve given her homemade or not. She just wants to eat what we eat. I keep Wellness Core small breed dog food down for her. When she gets desperate she’ll take some. I have a few different soft foods for her. Blue Wilderness is one. It’s a never ending battle. Just FYI I sent you an email last week. No worries, just wanted to let you know. Stay warm!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. My cat is just as fussy about eating as Stanley—I throw away a lot of cat food that she’ll eat one week but not the next. I’ll gladly take your weather–fall has decided to leave early this year. We actually had snow in the air today and more is coming all weekend—with the wind it’s really quite nasty outide.

  4. Congrats on the weight loss! You can always put modesty on pause when talking about losing any amount of weight that you have worked so hard for! We are expecting a significant temperature drop here in Indy – 40 degrees. Tomorrow morning it is forecasted to be in the 30s in the outlying areas with frost possible! Tomorrow is a reading/knitting day for me since the high is expected to be 58ish. There will definitely be a chill in the air. Have a great time with your son. Stanley will be glad to see him, I’m sure.
