Hi! It’s currently Friday morning as I type up this post and I’m ready for the weekend! How about you?
This week has been a busy one, with lots of laughter, a little bit of pain, and tons of dogs. That could actually just be the description of my life though, ha 😉
Jimmy and I bought Malcolm a harness so he can hang out outside and go on walks and he is loving it. He has been constantly going to the door and ringing Mavis’ potty training bells to signal that he wants to go outside. Smart kitty!
Mr. Malcolm visited the vet for his annual checkup last night and did great! We walked him down in his stroller, he got his shots, and the vet gave him a clean bill of health. We definitely got a few strange looks and comments because we had our cat in a stroller but I just tell people that’s what happens when you love your cat and don’t have children 😉
Speaking of children, our fur child Mavis had another play date with her havanese friend yesterday! She met a few other dogs, too, and is beginning to come out of her shell since the attack. It makes my heart happy to see her playing around without a care in the world.
While Mavis was out on her play date, Lola got a special treat! I had a dog walker come and walk her while Mavis and I were out and about. I’ve used Wag a few times and have always had a great experience. The app is pretty neat, too. The dog walker notes when your dog uses the bathroom, and GPS tracks their walk. Most importantly, Lola was happy!
Today I am bringing Mavis to the vet for her next round of shots, working, and pet sitting. I am finally back in my pet sitting groove. When we brought Mavis home, I took a week off of pet sitting to help her adjust. Since then I have slowly been adding my regular clients back to my schedule. I’ve even added two new ones, which has been great!
I might also make a run to the store for some hydrocortisone cream because I am itchy. Jimmy and I had an interesting run in with yellow jackets yesterday and we are both in quite a bit of pain.
I filmed a vlog that followed Jimmy and I along our day of taking Malcolm to the vet, getting stung by yellow jackets, and more, so I’ll share that below!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We are having a little cookout with family tomorrow and I’m excited! We’re going to grill burgers since the weather is supposed to be nice here in Pittsburgh.
