Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  We were in Central Park on Sunday, and BJ has become impossible when in the park.  He loves to go into the area of pachysandra along the Mall.  He ignores me when I call him to come out and just continues to run around and eat the dirt.  When I finally get him out I have to put his leash on.   We got to the path near the 67th street exit and he again ran into the pachysandra.  This time, when I leaned over the bench he ran further into the patch.  Keeping an eye on him, I walked over to some friends.  He finally came over and I put his leash on again.

The result of that struggle was my phone must have fallen out my pocket.  There are some very nice and very honesty people in new York.  i called my number and someone picked up.   I was back in the park, sans, BJ and retrieved my phone.  Actually, being in the park on such a nice day.

He seems to have selective hearing.  When I call him there are times he ignores me and continues what he was doing.  However, when I ask him if he wants a cookie, he looks at me and most of the times he comes running.

An suggestions of what I can do?

Sunday, June 10, 2012 just reported on animal welfare and rescue with statistics on money spent on animals.  It's astounding.

Many pet food companies donate to shelters across the country.  One way you can help -

Halo pet food posts a daily trivia question about dogs and one about cats.  All you need to do is click on each category and answer the question.  It's multiple choice and doesn't matter if you're right or wrong.  The company donates 10 pieces of kibble to shelters for each click.

Halo has donated almost 8 million meals.  If you want,  Halo will send a daily e-mail with links to the question.  Truly, it takes less than a minute to open the e-mail, click on the link and choose an answer, and Halo will donate 10 pieces of kibble.

It's fun and I've learned a lot from the questions.

Thanks Ellen Degeneres for being so generous.

Grooming and Rain
Any time you want to know when it's going to rain, just check with me and find out when I'm bringing BJ in to be groomed.  It never fails.  It either rains that day or the day after.  Sunday was no exception.  It wasn't raining when I brought him in and started when I picked him up.

Aside from that, what does it take for the groomer to cut him the same way twice.  We go over the look I want, I show her a picture, and she said she knew what to do.  For a 20 lb 12-year old, he has tremendous strength when he digs in.   BJ was not happy when she began to take him down the stairs and he dug in.

Even with the picture she didn't get it right.  He looks cute, just doesn't have the scruffy face I wanted.
