Spare Parts

After work on Friday, I swung by Phyllis and picked up about 5 bags of "spare parts." Her husband and a few buddies went hunting and got 7 antelope. They cleaned them, took what they wanted, gave them to Phyllis, who went through and took what she wanted, and gave me the carcasses. So I bought them home, and Janie and I went through everything, and cut it up into pieces that would fit into gallon ziplock baggies. It was quite a job, but now the dogs have bones for quite a while. I noticed that even in the short time I've been here, and feeding the dogs kibble alone, Zip's breath has been pretty stinky and his teeth don't look as wonderful as they usually do.

The puppy is fine. She is getting big. I can't wait to move into the house so I can really start bonding and working with her. She's coming pretty consistently now, especially when the other dogs are around, but I think she's decided I'm pretty fun just on her own.

The house is coming along. The outbuilding got painted (looks more like it was just primed), the doors are being replaced, the trim was taken down, and the hideous baseboard is being installed. I am going to go by there today and wash the outside of the house so I can get rid of all of the spiderwebs and clean the windows. With any luck, it will close on Friday as planned.

I'll try to take some pics of the house while I am there today.

More later,

  1. *snort* Wow, I am proud of you - feeding your dogs raw meaty bones. That means your new pup wont grow up to be a 'pin head'! LOL
