Clive Loves Car Rides

I am posting this video just because I believe Clive deserves more blog time than any cat. This dog seriously loves car rides. The video above is from a semi-forced ride tonight that Pam “guilted” me into giving Clive. It was only semi-forced because I really love driving Clive around.

I went to return Pitch Perfect 3 (yeah Shelley!) and when I returned Pam told me that Clive had sat at the garage door whining the entire time that I was gone. I would love to say this was because he was missing me, but the truth is that he was probably just upset that I had gone for a ride without him. This dog seriously loves car rides.

Put his harness and lease on and the dog runs to the garage door. Convince him to walk out the front door so that you can actually go for the walk and the second he exits the front door he starts to run to the outside garage door or if there is a car in the driveway he runs straight to it. Open your car door for a second, and pop he jumps in. If a stranger wanted to steal my dog all they would have to do is open their car door. Given the choice between me and a car ride with a stranger I am pretty sure that Clive wouldn’t even think twice, he would choose the car ride.

The good news is that Clive has good musical taste so we listened to The Clash during our ride through the country roads South of Plover.

Stupid Cat Found the Wyze Cam

I bought a couple of Wyze Cams because they are seriously inexpensive and I am convinced that 1) Clive and Helen do funny things that I wish were videoed when I am gone (they haven’t thus far), and 2) that I would like to know when someone enters our driveway during the day or night. I have the front camera setup to send me notifications when there is movement in front of our house when I am away.

Today I received notification that the stupid cat has found the Wyze Cam.

SIDE NOTE – These little Wyze Cams are awesome and I can’t believe how inexpensive they are.

The Good News is That Clive Stays in

So the good news from all this snow has been that I have been able to let Clive out without a leash while Adam and I have cleaned the driveway several times. The snow berms have been high enough to act as a natural fence. This is nice because it has kept Clive’s nose from dragging him away from us. I like working with Clive hanging out with me.

The bad news is that he hasn’t seemed to like being out as much as he normally does. Clive typically loves the snow, but he hasn’t seem to as much today. Pam thinks it may be because he can’t see anything beyond the snow berm. I believe she very well may be correct. Large snowfalls and short dogs don’t go together very well.

How Much Yarn Can a Basset Eat and Survive?

I’m not sure how much but I know at least this much. I assume this is about 50′ of yarn.

Normally Clive doesn’t eat non-digestible things other than liking chewing on paper. Thursday night he had an upset stomach and apparently ate some yarn in order to induce himself to vomit. I had no idea how much he had eaten until it started coming out both ends at different times. It’s funny now that I am no longer concerned about an intestinal blockage, he is eating and pooping fine. For a while there it wasn’t funny at all because I was concerned about my dog.

I’m fairly sure the dog ate enough yarn to crochet a toboggan or at least a baby toboggan (that is a knit cap for my Northern friends). Stupid dog.
