Oops, bad timing

We have found that going to bed slightly later than was our norm is better for Maya as we can get her out for a wee (and sometimes a poo) then she will go through the night until about 5.30. She may get up around 2am, but settles down again, just as Maggie used to when she’d get up for a drink in the night. Maggie was considerably more light footed than our girlie, but at least we don’t have to get up and can go back to sleep.

It is almost 10pm and we were thinking about that final wee etc then heard something rather unpleasant hitting our lounge window……………. hard.
It is now chucking it down with rain and looking at the radar picture, it’s likely to be with us for another hour.Β  In fact the only rain showing on the radar picture just now is directly over us!
Bummer.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Yikes! The rain just might derail the training train!! I hope not but going out in the rain is no one’s idea of fun…

    • She’s not a fan, but has pee’d in the rain when she first arrived as we took her out regularly to get her into the habit regardless of the weather. She definitely asks to go out now which is excellent for a pup.

    Great news,Di. Sometimes a bit of fine tuning makes all the difference. Tess seems to be settling, too.

    • So glad to hear that Tess is settling down too.
      We are learning her body clock and she is accommodating us. It’s only been 5 weeks and she has accomplished so much in that time.
