early start, late finish

I have been called for jury service starting this week, so all my routine has to change! First, early start, I have to wake up very early, walk Alan's Cavs in the local park for half an hour; then get home and drop Colin at the Tube station before 7am. With the snow condition, I get home around 7:15am, so feed all the dogs, then I take the shelties out by 7:30am. Walk/quick play for one hour, rush home, have my breakfast and get ready to set off to Croydon.

I normally gets home not later than 5pm, so far, I was home at 4:15pm. Then quickly, I take the Cavs out for half an hour walk in the park, rush back, take the shelties out for an hour's walk in the Common. Feed them. Then in between waiting for Colin to come home for dinner, I managed to squeeze in a quick trick training session with Sing, Saturn and Sizzle. When Colin comes back from work around 8:45pm, after our dinner (yes, we always have our dinner about 9pm!), we go out walking the 8 dogs in the Common again. By the time we get to bed, is nearly midnight! Oh dear! I am very tired!

During my absent, I was very lucky to have my nephew looking after the dogs for me, so they won't left alone. He is still on his holiday from College, that is very handy, phew! Eventhough he is with them all the time but Sing, Saturn and Sizzle aren't too happy, they are very much of a mummy's boys so they just sat by the door waiting for me to come home. They go crazy each day I came back from "work".

My nephew with all the dogs. He loves the dogs and he is very good wtih them and even the two Cavs are making friends with him. Quincey is supposed to be a little bit shy but he loves Boon, he finds it very cozy with him. I always find him lying next to him by his feet. Over the last couple of days, Sizzle tried to get Jaffa to play with him and finally she breaks her ice and now they are good friends. Sizzle like to tease her and then they started to chase each other, well, Jaffa can't run any faster but it was very good to see her playing with Sizzle. Both Jaffa and Quincey are very good, they are so well behaved and easy to live with. There is no problem taking them out walking, although they can't walk the speed the shelties walk but they are good with me.

Good picture of your nephew will all the dogs. Nice to hear the cavs are starting to play a bit too!

Hope jury duty finishes this week for you. It's a long day if it's not an interesting trial!

Oh, your schedule for the week sounds awful!! I don't know how you survive on so little sleep. Thank goodness you don't have to do this all the time and your nephew is there to help keep the dogs company! Good luck with the rest of the week and then I hope you can rest up on the weekend!
