General Updates

In general things are good around here:

Quincy and Emma are enjoying their time together and both of them are being exceptionally well behaved.  They have played inside and out and spent the day being lazy pups.

Winston - well - he had his moment of pink turdiness early and got in large amounts of trouble for it. Every so often the little twerp decides that today is the day he is going to challenge for dominance. He thinks he is going to be head of the herd.  Um - not happening my friend.  We did a good bit of MTP (move the pig) which is a technique of controlling the pig's feet.  If you can get them to go where you want - you win basically.  He knew he pushed too far when he got moved out of the laundry room, down his hallway and put in his bed.  When he was brave enough to come back to the laundry room his demeanor was quite different.  I sat down on the floor and he came over and flopped down for some cuddles.  Then he sat patiently for his dinner.  I guess he got the memo that mom is in charge.  Sheesh!

Kitties are all three doing well.  They have had some loves and all of them have been brushed.  I fed them and gave Ollie and Phoebe their meds.

The ferrets are all doing great.  They all seem just fine after receiving their implants yesterday.  Violet did great tonight taking her meds.  She seems to be just fine - no ill effects so far - thank goodness!

All in all things here are great - I am off to feed the pups and take them and the pig outside for their final potty break - but first - I am going to enjoy some pizza.... YUM!
