Flipped Out Friday!

Can you tell I enjoy making titles for my Friday posts?

What are you doing this weekend?

I’ve jammed a lot into the weekdays this week.

I’m excited for a slower paced weekend.

I’m not a huge TV watcher, but I’m looking forward to True Detective starting back on Sunday evening.

Fred and I will be working really hard with his trainer on Saturday.

Fred is definitely hitting his doggy “teen” years.

He’s been acting up when I leave him … something he hasn’t done before.

He tore up/chewed up a book this week.

It wasn’t just ANY book … it was a one-of-a-kind, very dear to my heart, book.

It’s the first time he’s been out-right NAUGHTY … and he was very PROUD of himself.

Well, until he saw I was unhappy with him.

Then he acted all loving, and sweet, and gave me those “I’m sorry” puppy eyes.

It’s my fault for not putting him in his crate while I was gone.

I’ve just never HAD TO before.

I’ve let him hang out in the house without any of the usual, expected, puppy issues ….

Until this week and The Incident With The Irreplaceable Book.

Fred is extremely bonded to me.

In most cases, it’s a very good thing.

He is, after all, my service dog.

The problem is, he feels he should be with me “taking care of me” all the time.

I think he has separation issues when I don’t take him along?

Anyway, discussing it is on my list for the trainer this weekend.

I’m learning and Fred is learning … it’s an ongoing process.

In addition to training,

Fred and I also hope to do a little weekend hiking along the coast where it will be cool(er).

(I’ll bring my new camera along.  I want to try it out with different lenses, and in different types of light, and situations.)

My first few test shots from it have been amazing.

Other than that, I don’t have any concrete plans.

Which is NICE.

I’m overdue for a relaxed weekend.

    Awwww, it’s hard to be mad at him but it’s a bummer about your book. 🙁

    We’ve got Father’s Day plans with my father-in-law on Sunday, but otherwise also looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

    Too bad about the book. It sounds as though the crate is a good idea for a while? I’ll also be trying to stay cool this weekend. Erik and a friend left today for LA for the Dodgers/Giants games and time with #1 daughter who lives there. I’m thinking time at the coast for me. Enjoy your weekend.

      I hope you were able to cool off a little at the coast!

    I hope you enjoyed your weekend of nothing. We all need those to relax and re-focus.
