Aryn, Angela and I went to the Metaphysical Fair in Des Moines this weekend. I know what you're thinking, but stop. Just stop. It was educational and fun, and I fully plan on going next year. It really was the highlight of my weekend.
I talked to an animal communicator about my dogs. As a result, there are a few things I need to do. Jayne needs to know what's expected of him in the house, so I need to write down a "job description" using positive imagery, and tack it to the fridge so he can read it. To avoid making him feel like he's being singled out, I'm supposed to do the same for the other dogs as well.
Jayne also needs to go on more walks where he doesn't have to do anything - just let him be a dog and smell stuff. He needs more joy in his life.
I apparently need to keep the house more dry... it'll help the dogs be more at peace. And cleaner, the house needs to be cleaner. Also, Talla wants to go more places. We'll work on that.
The madness has begun. Yesterday I drove out to pick up large quantities of chicken parts for the dogs. I came home with backs, wings, necks, feet, and a few bags of beef ribs. Chicken feet are crack-for-dogs, so I'll have to be sure to order many more in the future. Our chicken supplier will also be able to provide us with ground chicken mix, as well as ground goat in the fall. They're even going to attempt to find a source of pancreas for Revy!
That's all I've got for tonight, folks.
