The Adventures of Dog Sitting: Day 3

Woke up to thunderstorms and a crying puppy at 6 am. A crying puppy who promptly decided he didn’t want to go outside in the rain. I made him go anyway though. I haven’t had to clean up pee or poop yet and I’d like to keep it that way.

After he came back in we both went back to sleep until 8:40. Hahaha I guess we are both a little worn out today.

After we had woken up Niko, Dean, and Odin spent the rest of the morning playing in the backyard.

I, on the other hand, spent my morning cleaning (there’s mud and dog slobber everywhere 😩😩😩) and then I did a Nike Training Club work out. Man, these Nike workouts are kicking my ass, but in a good way! Not gonna lie though, today I skipped a lot of the moves, but I’m just so tired…and I really hate planks, but whatever. I still got 30 minutes of hard work done. 😬

Around lunch time I decided I should try to feed Niko again. My mom feeds him 3 times a day, but I’ve been trying to feed him twice a day in an effort to get him to eat at all. He’s been eating his canned food, his treats, and the little ice cream cups my mom insisted on getting him, but not his dry food.

So this time I tried giving him just dry food with no canned food in it, but he still wouldn’t eat it. And I can’t just leave it out because he’s super food aggressive and with start fighting the other dogs if there is food out, so I had to put it up. As I was doing that he found our dog food, which is nothing exiting right now, it’s just a bag of Ol’ Roy. But he decided he wanted that instead of his Blue Brand puppy food, so I gave him a big bowl and he ate it all. Dogs are weird…But at least I got him to eat.

We had another uneventful afternoon, but this evening Luke had 2 softball games, so poor Niko had to sit in the crate for almost 3 hours. Luckily he’s been doing well with the crate, which is kinda crazy considering he hasn’t been crate trained…until now that is. I should charge my parents for this haha. 😉

Seriously though, I can’t wait for them to get back and take their dog. He’s nice, but gosh he’s a lot of work…
