Weekend Recap

It's been an eventful weekend around here for sure.  On Friday night we made the exciting decision to add to our little brood by adopting Sebastian and Fiona the ferrets.  It has been such an easy transition and the two fit in like they have always been a part of the family.  They are adjusting well and getting on our schedule slowly but surely.  Kai and Bash played for quite some time this morning and Fiona had her first bath experience this afternoon - keeping me company and investigating the tub deck.  They both had a good dinner tonight which made me happy as I was pretty sure they had been eating but I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.  The rest of the ferret gang is doing just great!

Kitties are well - they seem to be happy and chilling out.  They are enjoying the spring sun and I know they are looking forward to open window weather.  Their weekend was pretty much like every other day - filled with lounging, snoozing, playtime and eating.

Emma had some time out walking with us this weekend - she did 8+ miles on Saturday.  We opted to give her a rest on Sunday since it was quite the long trek the day before.  She and Winston have been hanging out together and all in all she was a pretty good pup this weekend.

Winston was a bit challenging his weekend - we have entered the phase where he wants to test his limits so he is quite stubborn and disobedient.  On Saturday he was a good boy.  We have gotten in some great harness time - getting very good at getting into the harness, going outside to go potty and then coming in for a cookie.  On Sunday we decided to take him to my mom's for some outside play time.  Geez - what a little stinker.  He did his own thing and didn't listen a bit to either of his humans.  He threw a hissy fit getting back into the car to come home.  It was a very frustrating trip - for the second week in a row - so we have decided to give that a rest for a few weeks.  He has had some play time with his favorite piggy treat ball and now he is settled into bed.

All in all this was a pretty darn fantastic critter weekend.  We are in love with our new additions!!
