Somewhat better today, thanks. Got up with the dogs at 4:45 am and again at 6:30 am, but went back to bed after each and managed to sleep until 8:30 am. The 4:45 wake-up didn’t actually irritate me because it turned out the new guy (who I’m toying with calling either Mousse or Claude, more on those later) really had to go. Fair enough. The 6:30 wake up… that one was just because they wanted me to come downstairs.
Separation anxiety reared its ugly head when K-9 Club came to pick up Captain Applejack: crying, scratching, freaking out and a weird sound that was a combination of a wail, a growl and that sound that pigeons make. Bizarre. We took a long walk while Applejack was gone and that served to calm him down a bit. He came back home and fell asleep while I caught up on the phone with Fraction.
While I was composing this, K-9 Club dropped Applejack back off and the reunion resulted in more wailing. This version celebratory, I think.
Anyway. I’m off to lunch with my friend Jessi and her baby girl Sophie. More later.
