No rules to this project for me this year - some weeks there may be a few stories - other weeks nothing at all to report.
I'm going for a paper scrappy look this year.

Journalling:
So how quickly has a week gone. I still expect to see Molly's face at the back glass door peering in ready for her meal, I've caught myself a few times heading out the front to check where she's sleeping. Lucky has strangely taken on some of her characteristics. I've seen him laying in the front yard in the hollows that Molly had created on the lawn. Plus he just looks at his bowl at dinner time and walks to the back door and only when you take his bowl out and place it where Molly's bowl used to be will he eat. He likes to lay on her bed. Do we keep it? Does it confuse him or comfort him with her smell on it?


Dog psychology is in overdrive. Things are different. So in that vein I'm trying to make some new routines and new fun for Lucky. Tonight I devised what I am going to call Lucky's relay intervals, a training run (bearing in mind he won't go more than 2km tops). We drove to the Lake and the plan was that I would set off and run round as fast as I could while Mike strolled in the same direction with Lucky, until I caught them then Mike would take off for a lap while I recovered walking sniffing and pee'ing at every tree with Lucky (Lucky doing all that not me!) then Mike would catch us and I'd be off again while Mike recovered by strolling with Lucky and so on. Win-win. Lucky stayed under 2km and we got to get our run of a lot more kms in and it was loads of fun for the three of us.
