We are trying to get our two dogs to kennel. We would like to be able to take them on trips.
Buster on the top has never been kenneled and he is nine years old.
Nicky on the bottom was kenneled when she was small until she became completely house broken.
Now we are trying to get them to sleep in their kennels. Last night was NOT a good night.
Remember when you brought a new born baby home and he cried endlessly. Yep, that is what happened last night. I got up and yelled at Nicky to be quiet at 2:30 AM; then Buster barked until he almost lost his voice. Finally at 4:00 AM I got up and let them out. They went outside then zoomed to their beds in our bedroom. Not another peep until this morning.
We went and bought another wire kennel for Buster hoping that if he can see out more he might calm down. We will try again tonight. As with a baby, I believe we are in for some long sleepless nights until they are trained again. If you have any tricks please let us know!
We did go on a vacation a few weeks ago. I know, everyone says how can you go on a vacation when you are retired. A vacation is AWAY from home. Somewhere different. We spent our first night in Loveland, CO. Because of the floods of last year the 36 Hywy is not open yet so we had to take 34 Hywy from Loveland.
The next morning when we woke up to leave; someone had backed into my car. The desk clerk saw it happen and took the gentleman in and got his insurance and copy of his driver’s license. The insurance was canceled. Long story short they found him and he says he has new insurance. I pray he does so I can get my $240.00 copay back for having my bumper replaced.
We had a wonderful time. I wanted to see the Elk and got to see many of them. Listening to their bulging for their harem and watching the bulls practice their fighting. It is amazing how they get right in the front yards of houses and walk right down town and into the lake area.
We drove up into the Rocky Mtn. National Forest Park and got a lot of beautiful shots of mountains and the fall trees. The photo of the orange mountain I caused by the sun rising. I got a beautiful photo when we went to the meadows one morning to see the Elk herds.
My photos are on my laptop and I have not transferred them to my desktop yet. The photos below are not mine, they are put on Facebook by artist and Estes Park. They say to share them so I have. Makes you want to go up doesn’t it?
We drove to our hotel one day and seen a black bear in broad daylight in the trash can outside our room. He was about 200 lbs. Beautiful. Didn’t get a photo but I wanted to hug him! ha ha
The weekend we went to CO my son and his wife moved to Kansas City. It is really strange to not be able to drive to Park City and see them. We have yet to go see their new home. Wish is why we are trying to get the dogs trained. They have two dogs and two cats. So it would be a pretty full house if they aren’t kennel trained!
Have a great week.
