There is a cat in the dog house!

Sorry I haven't posted much this week. Nothing really has been happening. Grumpy and I started to make the time to walk to dogs every day at least around the block. Of course when we did it the first time on Monday I had to go get my jacket out of the car and Sassy thought we were going for a ride and kept hoping in the trunk. It was pretty funny. On days during the week that I work in the restaurant Grumpy takes both of them for their walk. The nice thing about the walk (aside the much needed exercise for us) is that we can reiterate their training. We make them stop and sit and all the fun stuff. Its working too Grumpy said he notices Sassy hesitates on occasion like she thinks about biting but she hasn't. The days I work at the Restaurant I have been riding my bike around the neighbor hood. I am getting in shape last night I was half way around the block before I started getting out of breath and I did my distance in record time too. Grumpy said I need to increase my distance but I want to hold of a couple more weeks. My knees are fragile (2 motorcycle accidents) and I don't want to mess them up by doing to much to soon. I am in no hurry.

Anyhow when I got home from the restaurant I was in a crappy mood. We had a party on the patio (a seminar thing) the same people had been there Tuesday and its easy to work. Well there were only 20 and I told Ronnie I didn't need any help but he made me take the new girl. Well except for my Scottish friend I hate working parties with other people because I end up having to do the majority of the work and then split my tips with them. Same thing here, I did 80% of the work during the party and 90% of the clean up after the party and had to give her 1/2 the tip which wasn't that much to begin with.

My mood did get much better when I got home and happend to glance into Macs house. This is what I saw. Little Miss Cleo decided that she should have Macs house. She came out long enough to say hello to me and then went back in. Of course once Mac came inside from the yard she decided to go upstairs into my bed. The thing thats funny about all this is that Cleo is really not that big on the dogs she tends to stay upstairs when they are in the house.

Well I am off tonight. I am meeting my English friend for dinner at the restaurant since our Scottish friend is working tonight and that way she can join us for a drink when she gets off. Tomorrow I have to work at night at the restaurant and Sunday its working at Busch Gardens. Lets hope the weather stays nice so I wont freeze my butt off.

This is so cute! Cleo and Mac apparently have a blossoming friendship. Soon they'll be inseparable. You'll have to take Cleo along for those walks. And have you ever tried walking a cat?? :)

Dan - believe it or not I used to have Misty on a leash. Cleo has a harness on because I need to take her to the vet and she hates the carrier so I put her on a leash --- lots of fun

jin said...

I <3 that piccie of Cleo in the cage. That's PRICELESS!!!

Yay! Countdown clocks! I should get one...but I don't know what I would countdown! LOL!

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - yeah we were laughing pretty hard.
mhh how about a countdown until you get a break/vacation because you deserve one!!!!!!!

I love the pictures in this entry. What's not to love with the cat in the cage and the dog in the trunk...so cute.

Dino aka Katy said...

Turtle - I know what you mean.

Beth said...

Don't you just love how cats decide where they will live and with who they will live....and the rest of us better like it...or else. such attitude!

SaM-GiRL said...

LOL!! for real!? you had a cat on a leash!? Shouldve been a sight to see. You really have beautiful animals!

Dino aka Katy said...

Beth - yes thats so "catish" - as the saying goes "Dogs have masters, cats have staff" we are all here to serve the cats!

SG - yeah I used to have her on a leash and when I went to visit my mom we tied her to something so she could roam outside but not get eaten by alligators.

That must be a fierce cat to rate such a large cage!

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - yeah thats it fierce! ;)

Gareth said...

Do the dogs walk half of the distance and then catch a ride in the trunk for the rest of it? Teehee ;)

Dino aka Katy said...

Gareth - we were discussing that option yesterday. I walked with them 6 miles sunday and again 6 miles yesterday and Mac was looking a bit worn out. Grumpy was ready to come and get us if she got really tired. But we didn't need him - but Mac slept for the rest of the day.

Hey, I can't post a comment on your newest post? The comment link is gone.

I wanted to say I LMAO at the commercial!

and

GREAT job! All that walking!!!

I know what you mean about your arms hurting. I usually hold Bean when we take her to the lakefront & her strength is incredible! I try to run with her, but I can hardly keep up (and I run fairly fast! LOL) so she ends up pulling my arms. They always feel like lead the next day! HA! lol

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - I found the problem and copying your comment in there,
