Puppy Problems

Outside my window...a hot, humid day; one of the hottest of the year. Even the breeze was hot.
I am thinking...we’re concerned about the puppy. He’s had two sets of obedience school and that has improved how he is with people, but he is quite ferocious with other dogs. He has attacked other dogs with a vicious tenacity. It’s scary to watch because we can’t break it up. Even when the other dog submits, he still goes after them. We’ve paid the vet bills for a dog who had his ear bitten by Kody. My husband is saying we may have to give him away since he can’t control him, but it breaks my heart. I was crying last night just thinking about it. I hope we can come up with another solution.
I am hoping...I’ll be able to sleep tomorrow night. I’m going for a sleep study to check for sleep apnea since I’ve woken up a few times gasping for breath. I dreamed I was underwater and I sat up to break the surface. Scary feeling. Although I dread the thought of the treatment for it (a CPAP machine), I also don’t like the idea of dying in my sleep. Apparently at this place they put electrodes on your head and watch you sleep. Not a typical night.
I am thankful for...our STAYCATION. We have day trips planned all week.
From the kitchen...surf and turf (steak and lobster). We had originally planned to eat out one night this week, but then whole lobsters were on sale for only $5.99 so that was the cheaper option. We have never made a whole lobster at home before. We also had sautéed mushrooms, green beans, potato salad, and mini cherry pies.
I am hearing...Murdoch Mysteries.
I am reading...Love on a Dime by Cara Lynn James.
Around the house...I was able to get to the doctor’s today. I’ve been putting it off because I usually have to wait for hours, but I was out quickly.
One of my favourite things...going out for ice cream with my husband.
Some plans for the week... We went to the beach yesterday, tomorrow we’re going to another beach, then Shakespeare in the Park, the R.O.M. and the Liverpool/TFC game on Saturday. We’re attending a church in Belleville on Sunday and swimming at a friend’s pool. Then back to work on Monday.
