Today is my last day home alone with the pup but I still have a long list of things to do to catch up from our week of family visits. So far I have caught up on my sleep, run errands, done most of the cleaning and all the laundry, put things away, caught up on emails but not phone calls, done some mending, cooked and more.
The pup however is having trouble sleeping all night. The first day he slept all day as he was happily exhausted from playing with our granddaughter and going to his training class. Then he had a short night's sleep. 2nd night he did better. Last night he was up at 2am to go pee and then crashed on the couch with me.
His eating pattern is also off and he has been unhappy each time I've put him in his crate so I could go somewhere. The funniest thing was when he sneaked into the garage without me seeing him do it and I shut him in there. He DID NOT LIKE being by himself in there and hasn't been trying to get out there again.
But boy did he enjoy all the action in our house last week. I've never had such a social dog. I need to play with him this afternoon in hopes of wearing him out before bedtime.
