    She still gets the same amount of attention she was getting before Benny. She still sleeps with me at night all snuggled up tight. Neither of them have been to the farm in a good while because its just been too hot. When I do take them I take them together to avoid coming back home to a pee pee couch. BUT, she was doing this before Benny came.

    (Wheres that little icon with the head banging on the brick wall? Lol, thats what I feel like) Any chance that once she pees on herself a few times and has to have a bath (which she dislikes), that she'll stop this nonsense?? Maybe?

    Aww, what POS. People disgust me sometimes. I bet youll find one at an auction. Theres plenty around here for sure. Sometimes Im glad I dont own my own land lol.

    Actually Im off for the next few days and Im sure its going to be too hot to even enjoy the outside, so Ill be inside. Ive already googled dog diaper pattern and may crochet one up and line it with a dish towel or something just to try, maybe get her used to wearing one. I do wonder though...will she still pee and Ill have a dog to bathe when I get home? Ugh.
  5. The Front Porch

    I have never understood that either!

    I tell her all the time that shes very lucky that I love her. Like I said before, she is perfect in every way except this one issue.
  7. The Front Porch

    Im buying the cloth ones when I get paid Thursday. Hopefully she cant shred those. Left work early today cause the census was low and my sciatica nerve wants to be a pain today, so I didnt get those diapers from my friend/coworker to try. Oh well.
  8. The Front Porch

    We've been to the vet for this a couple times. Ive tried giving her the benefit of the doubt but the vet cant find anything wrong. He says its behavioural. She hasnt always done it. A friend is bringing me some diapers for her today. I have the next 3 days off and will leave her for a short period with a diaper on and see what she does.
  9. The Front Porch

    With the heat and her short nose, Id be afraid she'd suffocate. Then theres the very real reality that someone might steal her.
  10. The Front Porch

    I have thought about that (and have recommended them to others) but I haven't tried one. I might pair it with a doggie diaper lol. Im willing to try just about anything at this point.

    Help, before I lose my mind! My 10 year old dog Faith (pitbull x bull terrier) has been having a behavioral issue for some time now. She is absolutely perfect in every way except this ONE issue, and its driving me nuts! I believe she has separation anxiety. Ive been told that dogs dont do things for spite, that they dont think that way, but Im telling you..SHE DOES! I work 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts. When Im at work she pees on the couch, particularly in the spot I sit in. Don't worry, I have the couch covered down to a science so the pee never gets on the couch its self. Plastic matress cover from Dollar Tree, 2 blankets ontop of that and another blanket covering it all. And every evening when I get home, the couch gets stripped, wet blankets go into the washer, matress cover gets tossed and I start all over. This evening took the cake. Got home and the couch is covered in pee...and so is the floor. (I have them confined to the living room) There was enough pee for 3 or 4 dogs. Im so aggrivated. Just once Id like to come home from work and just crash on the couch, but nope, I have to redress it first. So, crate her right??? I wish. She used to crate very well years ago and then I dont know what happened but I came home one day and she had pushed her way out of the crate, her entire face and head was very swollen from pushing against the metal. I tried and tried to retrain her to crate, and she would hurt herself trying to get out. It was so bad that I was afraid that she would really get herself hemmed up and possibly die. Now, before you tell me that 12 hours is a long time for her to hold her bladder...she doesnt pee on the couch (or inside) at all when Im home on my days off. She will happily lay in bed or on the couch for 12 hours and not once need to go out. But if I leave her...yep. I absolutely take her out to pee before leaving so I don't know where shes even storing all this extra pee. I kid you not, I could take her out to pee, leave her for 30 minutes, and she'll pee on the couch. This dog is doing it for spite! Benny and Jenna both hold their bladders when Im gone. A coworker suggested doggie diapers and I seriously think Im going to give them a try.

    Depends on how I feel lol. Landlord is very picky about who fishes his ponds and usually its catch and release. But, hes told me I can keep some. I toss them back, unless Im hungry and/or feel like going through the trouble of cleaning them. Same goes for public lakes.
  13. The Front Porch

    Well, today is the last day of my staycation. Its been nice. Ive fished til my reel broke last night. Finally caught a decent sized bass in the pond where the catfish got away from me weeks ago. Found a boat landing Ive been meaning to find and played in the water there. Took Benny and Faith and Benny was very timid about the river. Its funny because she acts like she owns the pond at the farm. Ate at a seafood place Ive been meaning to get to. Spent time with my neice and nephew. Cleaned up my yard and garden area. The list goes on and on. I have to say, snuggling with my Benny in the mornings has been the best though. Theres just something about that pooch. Im gonna miss it most tomorrow.
  14. The Front Porch

    That looks pretty neat!
  15. The Front Porch

    Sitting at the library downloading some Netflix stuff. Its HOOOT. But, Im on vacation! Staycation to be exact lol. So I can sleep as long or as little as I want, go where I want, do what I want, and fish as many days as I want. Got some errands done yesterday and today. Itching for another wood project to do but nothing has crossed my mind or even sparked it. Tomorrow Im going panning for gold with a friend. For some reason shes panning the creek behind her house. Lol, its something to do.
  16. The Front Porch

    Just a quick Netflix update.. Tried watching The Haunting of Hill House. Booooring. Couldnt get into it. Deleted it. Tried 13 Reasons Why. Again, boooring and fell asleep, twice. Downloaded The Ranch and American Horror Story. Currently watching Heartland and Free Rein. Free Rein is a bit kiddish, but its cute.

    Its amazing the things you can do when you have the right tools to do it with. I love my circular saw. These 3 glasses are the ones I use. I have others in the cabinet that are from wineries/vineyards that I dont use because I dont want them to break. I need to find a better way to display them though.
  18. The Front Porch

    So, heres my little project. Got tired of having all my coffee cups and all of my wine glasses taking up space in the cabinet. (Oh, who am I kidding, I just made room for more wine glasses, lol.) I just had this idea and the landlord had some pallets laying around. I bought myself a drill and a circular saw and made it happen. I ordered the hooks from Amazon and had one of the maintenance guys hang it up for me. I love love love it.
  19. The Front Porch

    Whew lord jesus, I think you both are pretty lucky!

    littlecow this is my landlords mini donkey Abby. Last year we went back and forth on if she was pregnant or not. Turned out not.
  21. The Front Porch

    *gasp* Ive always wanted a Fjord! littlecow the landlord has a mini donkey. Ill have to take a pic for you. Hes got a couple other regular donkeys too. The jenny Sophie loooves attention. I just found recently that she absolutely loves to be fly sprayed, its the funniest thing. Its almost like she knows exactly what youre doing and is greatful lol.
  22. The Front Porch

    RailroadWoman and noponies, I think Ill talk to the landlord tomorrow and see if I can either keep June or buy her from him. I could still have kids play with her and show her in hand until shes ready to drive. I never ever thought Id have a mini, even have said I wouldnt have one if ya gave it to me, but I do really like June. Oh, and I went ahead and bought an air fryer. Threw some frozen fries in it tonight and they turned out good. Ill have to try more stuff in it. My brothers best friend loves his so Im sure he can give me meal ideas. I dont go back to work til the weekend. Tomorrows agenda is to stop by the library and get my fishing license so I can go fish at the state park up the road from me. A coworker pulled out a 8lb bass from the state park last week. Then Ill run to Southern States and grab a couple more tomato plants. Just gotta get my dirt from the farm first.

    Good lord guys its hot and humid here! How anything can live outside in this heat is beyond me. I bought a circular saw...and I love it! I cant wait to show you guys a pic of the project Im doing. The cutting is done and its being hung on the wall tomorrow but Im just waiting for some hooks to come from Amazon before I take pics. I think my landlord even likes it! Speaking of the landlord, we had a chat today and he wants to sell the remaining 2 minis, Margarita and June. Zarinna is not holding up her end of the deal, and neither is her mother. Zarinna is supposed to check their salt bucket everyday and make sure they always have (loose) salt, and she hasnt. I could tell/remind her til Im blue in the face, and its not going to happen. Additionally she hasnt payed them any attention at all all summer. I even suggested that she look up videos on youtube on how to train them to do tricks. Shes always on youtube. She hasnt looked for one video. Her mom never payed for the farrier visit weeks ago, and theyre due again. The landlord wants to sell the minis, and rightly so. I hate to see them go, especially June. Would I be a fool to keep June? She could be a companion for Sonic and I would like to get into driving one day. Ive even gone as far as to inquire the cost of training June for driving last month. The verdict was thats shes actually not old enough yet to pull weight, so the trainer suggested I wait and just keep ground driving her til shes old enough. What do you guys think? Lastly, anyone have an air fryer? What do you use it for? Favorite thing to cook in it?

    Wishing you the very best with your surgery. Im sure everything will go perfect and you'll find the recovery isnt so bad.

    Heartland used to come on one of my regular tv stations years ago. Not sure whatever happened to it. I may start it all over.
