12 of 12

So I'm doing my 38th 12 of 12

Normally it is 12 pictures taken on the 12
th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Janet Hughes is now hosting the link that puts many 12 of 12'ers together (sometimes she keeps current, sometimes not).  The number of people linking don't seem to be as robust as they once were, but that stands to reason.  

I still continue to do this, because of all my consistent post topics, I actually like this one the most. 

07:45.  Rain. Continual rain.  Flooding our outdoor walkways.  Plans to have drainage fixed are in process for later this Spring. 

08:30.  Petey's heartworm medicine.  It smells vile. Bologna can't mask it.  He eats the Oscar Meyer and spits out the pill.  Smart, but frustrating dog.

08:40.  Roly-Poly Petey.

09:20.  Adding songs to and charging my iPod Shuffle. It is the one I use for my gym workouts.

09:45.  Rain stopped for a moment so first doggie walk of the day.

Petey meeting up with Shane and Caliegh.  Caliegh almost never engages that much. Shane likes to get in Petey's face.

10:05.  Work being done on neighbors chimney and roof over the next few weeks.

13:30.  Downtown Cleveland from Edgewater Park.  Frickin' freezing outside for mid-April.

2:45.  The VA Hospital.  The County and State hate it for their costs, but my father, a WWII vet, loves their services and says he's never been treated better.

17:00.  A hastily taken shot on the way out of the grocery. I meant to take one while shopping but forgot.  Just got small items - dog bones, an onion, bananas (the shit is), milk - stuff like that.

17:35. I'd say a late afternoon snack, but I didn't have lunch, so......just mini fat free pretzels that I dip into lo-cal honey mustard dressing.

20:50.  Making a salad, while 710 makes the pasta.

22:00. Gotta have one of Sophie.  Her little nightly saucer of milk.  We know have to put it up high so Petey just doesn't steamroll her to get to it.

There you have it.  More 12 of 12 next month.

Tip for giving dog pills:

-Break the bologna up in two pieces – one in each hand
-wrap the pill in one of the pieces
-make sure Petey see’s both hands holding bologna
-give him the one with the pill while holding the second piece in clear site
-To get to the second piece he will eat the first piece really fast - pill and all (he’ll “wolf it down”)

Blobby -
The absolute sure-fire way to get a dog to take a pill is to put the pill in a blob of peanut butter. I have never seen a dog that doesn't like pb, and they can't separate the pill from the pb - it's just impossible. And they soooooo love pb! They will love taking pills.

My Sophie loves her Heartgard chewie treat every month. No pill! I love your 12of 12s.

Yes, we used to put our pooche's pills in PB - works well but soon they realized 'peanut butter = pill'
Hamburger (raw) is also useful.

I very much enjoy 12 of 12!

MoJo's heartworm pills are now tasty -- for the first time in many years!

1-800-petmeds has Greenie pill pockets which are great. Just drop the pill in and mold the Greenie around the pill. MoJo loves them and eats them so fast he never realizes he just took a pill! I use them for his pain pills.
