i got to do my p90x this morning – yeay! :)
now that i have a better idea of when hobbes needs his outing, i can figure out when my ‘safe-workout’ period should be. true – it’s 15 minutes earlier, but i’ll find a way to adjust.
i’m also looking into doggy daycare.
yes, i know. scoff if you will. i was a scoffer too before owning a dog and now i scoff no more.
the greatness of doggy daycare should be taken advantage of when they can not hold their bladders for a full day. and i found a place that charges just a fraction of most places (it just means that i have to allow 10 minutes more traveling time each way per day i send him there.)
if i can get doggy daycare for either monday or friday; my aunt/uncle to take hobbes on the other day of that monday or friday; and then doug is home on wednesdays… that means i can go to the gym 3 times a week. monday, wednesdays and fridays. :) yeay!
the added bonus – hobbes will be getting his socialization met at this very influencial age. just like young children, it’s what helps to build their confidence amount different dogs and people. the first year is the most important – it sets their path for years to come.
after the first year of his life, we probably won’t need doggy daycare for more then once a week. most of these places also have grooming services so when it’s time for him to get a hair cut or nails clipped, we can kill two birds with one stone.
i know – all i’ve been talking about is hobbes lately. i promise in the near future, my posts will be about something else. :)
