We Survived

Well, Oreo and I survived our week together. So long as he got his daily morning walk at the local dog run, his evening neighborhood stroll and two square meals a day, he was perfectly happy. No major incidents to report apart from some morning frolicking by Oreo with other dogs at Conroy Pit.

One twist on the week came on Friday. I decided to visit Sarah and Cheryl and their companions at their rental cottage. That meant, of course, taking Oreo with me. A two and a half hour ride in a car promised to be eventful but Oreo was fine. He behaved fairly well at the cottage although I think everyone was happy that we were only staying one night. I think that was a reflection on Oreo but, in hindsight, perhaps it was because of me!

The ride back was also uneventful. We took an alternate route due to the summit at Montebello, Quebec with Bush, Harper and Calderon. I think we could have gotten through but we played it safe and travelled via Lachute and Hawkesbury instead.

Just the Boys

This week will definitely be a test of my ongoing relationship with Oreo. Cheryl and Sarah are off to a cottage for the week and I will be in charge of the dog. That means a morning trip to the local dog run each day and a walk in the evening. Not to mention some occasional attention in between. I suspect that we'll get along fine so long as I do what Oreo wants and stick to his routine. Since Cheryl and Sarah will be away, he might get a bit antsy (as will I, no doubt) but between the two of us, we'll survive.
