I’m not even going to try to make this an interesting concept, I’m just going to be honest with you:
My dog is pooping outside.
Across the board excited.
Right now, at this very moment, at the brink of morning I am wearing my cement-gray slippers, Ben’s hoodie and a quilt my mom made (and pants, just to be thorough)…on my front porch.
It is a balmy 43F right now, but with no wind and a bright, patchy blue sky.
What would draw me outside at this hour, you might ask?
Well, ever since St.Sebastian got his casts off, we have been able to go outside to poop. See, I couldn’t take him outside when his casts were on because it was wet and rainy outside, and I didn’t want his casts to get wet. So, we tried to have designated places for him in the house…
This was a 25% success.
Because 25% of the time, he used the puppy pads we put out. The rest of the time we would find his spots, which was getting tiresome.
However, now that the casts are off…and it is not 27F outside and the ground is not frozen and I can go outside with a hoodie and pajama pants and not freeze solid…we are starting new routines! New habits!
Every morning for the past week I have taken St.Sebastian outside for about an hour. I have had my coffee, blanket, hoodie and laptop and read the news outside, watching little man explore the front yard and all its foresty smells.
I am just excited about this because the dog has to stop peeing in my kitchen at some point.
And now we are a normal dog family where I have to take him outside every so often, like a normal dog.
It’s just nice when things work out the way they are supposed to 🙂
