70 degrees & Sunny!

Yeah!!!! It's 70 degrees today!!! We spent a half hour playing in the yard.

Lola chased around her ball...

Sherman dug himself a new hole & "hunted" squirrels...

And there were lots of bugs to sniff out...

Then I walked the dogs. I took Penny & Lola together & it was a huge mistake!! It started out fine & but 1/2 way through, every dog in the neighborhood came out of their houses for their walk. Lola barked & carried on the entire time. Back to the drawing board.

A couple of dogs asked me about Chill Out...specifically, if it works. The answer to that is, I don't know. I'm not as into all the "new age", holistic stuff as some of my other "dog friends". A lot of them swear by DAP & Rescue Remedy & aromatherapy, etc. I can't help but be skeptical...I'm pretty much a cynic by nature. But I've noticed the most calming effects with Chill Out than the other stuff. I used it during the Feisy Fido class and did notice a difference. It's not a cure-all, by any means. But, I figure...can't hurt!

I tried rescue remedy on Joey during a storm, it didnt do anything. I never heard of the chill out, though.

Thrawn uses Rescue Remedy after his seizures, seems to help some.
