And today was apparently Teulu's.
Teulu was behaving a bit restless last night, not ill behaved, but just a little restless. I was not in a particularly good mood, and so that may actually be why he was the way he was.
So today I decided to entertian him as much as I could.
He started the day with a 45 minute walk about the neighbourhood. After that, we picked up some loose branches and piled them up as it is brush pick up next week. He really enjoyed this as we got to pull up lots of braches and that meant uprooting wet leaves, lots of sniffing.
then he seemed sleepy, so I took some time at the local coffee shop, paid some taxes, found my missing W-2's (What a hassle), returned some emails, and changed my address properly (to the PO box), got the oil changed and the plugs etc changed.
I came home, Teulu was sleeping on the bed. I took him out again for another walk. The sun had finally come out so we enjoyed that walk. We walked for about 30 minutes, I met one of the new neighbours, very friendly man with rabbits and a very nasty dog named Cinnamon….People should really think before they name their dogs. This poor guy spends a good deal of his time walking his dog saying loudly, "Cinnimon, Cinnamon,now Cinnamon…"
After that walk, I finished my lunch, did a few more administrative things.
Teulu found a cow hoof in the corner that he had left here. He was very excited, and happy to have this treat to chew and essentially carry about…
I decided he was happy enough and went running. He did stare out the window at me, but neglected to bark.
After my run and shower, it was time to walk the dog AGAIN. On our walk we ran into Sundancer and his Mommy. Teulu was his usual horrible self. Sundancer's Mom was kind enough to let them play in the back yard. He ran around and ran and ran. Sundancers Mom and I talked about Santa Fe, the neighbourhood, and the winter weather. I'm so embarassed, I can not recall her or her husbnads name, only the name of the dog!!!!!
At some point, I mentioned casually how I was going to get Teulu a soccer ball, hopefully that he couldn't destroy. Turns out that Sundancer had a Indestructible ball, that he hates. Sundancers Mommy got out the ball and Teulu went absoloutely crazy! He was in heaven. He ignored Sundancer (who is a bit older and not as interested in playing), and Sundancer's Mom, and me, and played with that ball for almost 45 minutes. Sundancer's Mom put the ball in a bag and we took it home. I haven't gotten it out again, as it's pretty hard.
After this Teulu got to participate in more stick collections…
And he still has some energy. He has finally settled, as the sun is going down.
Whew. I am tired. I suppose every dog has his day. I'm not sure I can keep up with Teulu!!!!
Unfortunately for him tomorro is the day I make a large attempt to mastermind my taxes. Lets see how that goes. I imagine we shall be doing a little less walking. he might even have to run about in the back yard…..alone!
