As of this morning, Jack is back to normal. I was beginning to be seriously concerned, because one hears horror stories of dogs that don't poo only to find out that their intestines are twisted or that they have horrific blockages, and all of those stories end with the death of the dog. But Jack is okay. Whew. He's a complete pain in the ass, but I do adore his furry little self.

It is still quite cold; the weather seers said it was 9° this morning before dawn when we went walkies. I didn't catch the wind chill, but there was wind, and it was chilled. Enough so that I cut walkies short this morning. Not as absolutely short as I sometimes do; I just did the small loop that we do in the afternoon (cutting through a parking lot) instead of the larger loop we normally do in the mornings (all the way down to the main road and across parallel to the parking lot, then back home -- it's not a huge difference, but it does cut five or six minutes off the walk).

Today, I should probably do a few more things than I did yesterday. I didn't do any laundry for one thing. On the other hand...I could get by without doing the laundry, so maybe I won't bother until next weekend. I spent nearly the whole day yesterday binge-watching Emergency! some more. Yeah, I know. I'm kinda obsessed with it, and I'm not really sure why; nattering on )

Weird what sticks with you.

In other news, it is currently snowing, but it was snowing when Jack and I went walkies an hour and a half or so ago. In fact, we were out before the plow this morning. Jack was so pleased that I finally allowed him to check out the yard where the new beagle gets his/her outings, but it was only because I saw the plow turning the corner and I really didn't feel like getting run over by it. So we stopped under the light pole which is oddly situated halfway up the yard and waited for the plow to pass. But that meant that Jack got to take in All The Smells. So he was happy.

My brother got back to me on the diet Coke issue: he never touches my fridge, so he'll ask the Gecko about it. I've never set her father on her before, so I'm a little curious to see how this plays out. I'm certain she'll deny it, but unless Jack has developed the ability to a) open the fridge, b) pick out just the diet Coke, c) open cans, and d) destroy or hide the evidence, then it has to be her, as she is the only other person in the house. I'm especially interested in light of him admitting to me the other day that she'd be useless to keep an eye on Jack while he was sick (for which reason I took the day off so I could watch him myself).
