Storm is on a low residue diet, which means that I have to boil chicken and eggs, have rice prepared and also buy cans of pumpkin. Ground turkey was on sale this week so she also had a cup of that fried. She seems to be feeling better in general. Tonight she will be alone for about 5-hours, which does make me a little nervous, but not terribly so. She is very sweetly sleeping at my feet right now while I wait for the water to boil for her chicken thighs.
I think that she will eventually bark a little less when she hears noises, and I’m grateful that she does not destroy anything that she carries around. I do plan on getting her pen more situated, because being half Boxer (But in reality, mostly antelope.) she can jump any gate anyway if she wants to. Eventually she will have a Storm Cave in the garage via doggie door, but for right now, I like having her here with me while I’m on vacation for 10-days more. I also hope that someday she doesn’t cry when I leave, but acting like “business as usual” as Cesar Milan recommends does really help.
