Thanks to everyone who sent their well-wishes to Preston. The recovery has been slow because Preston runs and jumps as usual. The injured paw didn’t slow him down a bit. Daddy and Mommy are doing our best to take care of his paw and we wish he could be a bit more cooperative.
Here is a belated post from last weekend.
Occasionally, Daddy and Mommy would give Preston the chance to prove himself that he was a big boy and there was no need to crate him anymore. Preston has failed the test BIG TIME! When he gets upset for being left alone, Daddy and Mommy’s papers are at risk.
Preston is recovering from an injured paw but there is no excuse for bad behaviors!!
Not a happy weekend for Preston.
Preston was injured when chasing after the laser pointer. Mommy shouldn’t have played with him on the cement floor. One of his nails was ripped off. Ouch!! Mommy felt really bad about it and apologized with an extra large frosty paw.
Can’t go for a walk for a few days and no more rough play…bummer!
Mommy has been feeding Preston home-cooked meals so she would like to start her collection of doggie cookbooks. The first book Mommy got is Real Food for Dogs by Arden Moore. It is a fun book with lots of cute illustrations. Mommy got some good inspirations from the book, but some of the recipes are wayyyy too “yummy” for doggies’ daily consumption. Preston is not that lucky!
Preston usually gets exercise from his daily walk. When Daddy and Mommy can’t take him out for a walk, Preston goes to the fitness room. He sure has a great workout every time!
Preston does not need a lot of grooming but he is a BIG shedder, especially in the summer time. Mommy’s best weapon to deal with his shedding is the FURminator. (size Medium)
Hmm...Maybe a Puggle-Chinese Crested hybrid isn't such a bad idea...
Preston finally got to enjoy the popular summer doggie treat, Frosty Paws. He was in love with it at the first lick!
Frosty Paws (the most popular version found online)
32 oz. plan, fat-free yogurt
1 banana (Mommy uses 2!)
2 tbs peanut butter
2 tbs honey
Blend all the ingredients together. Pour into 3 oz. ramekins and freeze.
Daddy is out of town this weekend. Preston and Mommy are spending some quality time together.
“Mommy, can we go for a walk?”
Going for a walk on beautiful Stanford Campus
Mommy baked more of peanut butter biscuits. Yum!
Preston’s steak and pasta dinner (+spinach, carrot, avocado & chicken liver)
“Preston! Bad table manner!”
Awaiting “eat” command.
“That’s more like it, Preston. Good boy!”
See how Preston answers the question “Wanna go for a walk?”
If Daddy or Mommy isn’t in the mood for a walk, this is what Preston does… It is not hard to guess why Preston always gets what he wants.
