The Stories of the Day
This afternoon we went for a walk with Emma and Winston. They were both very active and full of piss and vinegar. Winston does this funny thing where he lets you get a good distance in front of him and then he runs past you and turns around and stops to block your path. Then he sits and tries to get you to give him a cookie. Silly pig - he is pretty stinking cute - it works most of the time! :) Winston has a heart murmur so its great for him to get out of the fenced area and run around - it raises his heart rate and keeps the old ticker in shape. You would never know that his heart has a little hole in it. He is very active and we try to keep him trim so there is no additional strain on his heart from being overweight. They both came in from their walk, had their dinner and napped.
I just finished the evening critter rounds. The kitties get their can of cat food and my three hyper thyroid cats get their medication. The ferrets get their gravy (ferret food with warm water). Everyone gets loved on and treats and ferret messes get picked up and cat boxes get scooped. Winston and Emma get taken out for their last potty break as well. Tonight it was pretty chipper out there - and - we heard the coyotes howling in the distance. Needless to say - Winston and Emma were motivated to pee faster and we all trooped inside. Winston has been tucked into his bed after his nighty cookies and Emma is laying at the end of our bed snoozing.
That about summarizes our day - hoping you had a great one as well...
