For Feline and Furball Friday:
I don't really have a story for you this week about my dogs, except that Pepper is backsliding a bit on the whole obedience issue, and Cayenne gave me a scare today.
They're still going to the dog park nearly every day, and their favorite thing to do is chase other dogs. Pepper has a tendency to bark at any dog who is bigger than she is, especially a St. Bernard and a Rottweiler. Cayenne sometimes gets in barking mode as well. They don't attack other dogs, but sometimes I think they're a little too aggressive, and I had to drag Pepper away twice yesterday when she ignored me to follow the Rottie around. Their races at the fence next to the small dog enclosure are far less problematic.
Pepper has also decided not to come when I call her in from the back yard fence, where she waits to bark at cats. She really likes to spend time out there, and would bark intermittently all night long if I didn't close her inside.
Cayenne woke me today as she shook the bed with a sort of rhythmic twitching that originated at the rear end of her chest. She was wide awake, and I was briefly terrified that she might be having a seizure. But I'm now reasonably convinced that it was doggie hiccups, of all things! It was over in a minute or two. She's fine now, but I'll be keeping my eye on her.
