It's Alive

4 weeks

1 month

Where the hell did the time go, feels more like just a couple weeks. Honestly, I have no idea where 4 weeks have went.

Still no calls, nobody is hiring not even contract jobs. Talked with a contract house last week and they said they haven't even gotten a job in a month. And this is a big contract house, on the size of Kelly Services.

This is getting more depressing as the days go on. And with both Chrysler and GM announcing they are going to lay off a couple thousand each I don't think I will have a new job this year.

But Life Goes On ....

The puppers are enjoying this, they get a walk almost every morning (some mornings the arthritis won't let me and by late morning it's to warm).

It's funny but sad that I have had to start wearing shoes in the house because my feet don't like going a week without wearing shoes (the 30 minutes of pupper walking in the morning doesn't really count). Besides the 30 minutes in the morning I am only averaging 2 hours of shoe wearing a week.

My goal is to get Lance to ring the bell for potty. Maggie does it and Lance will just tag onto her ring but if he has to pee and Maggie doesn't and I am upstairs he will just pee in his crate. He just hasn't taken to the bell.

Now for pupper pictures!

Job hunting sucks. Sometimes, you just wish you had a place to go during the day.

I am sure you have done it already, but posting on Monster and Career Builder may get some activity. Not so much that you will find a job posting, but that headhunters will find your resume and call you.

I have had more luck that way than doing the job searching.

Pups look good. I am behind in getting pics of my puppy up.

How do you train a dog to ring a bell for potty?

It's actually pretty easy Harvey.

Put the bell by the door (we have ours hanging on the lowest door jam) and when you take them out you make them ring it and say potty, each and every time.

Eventually they get it that if they ring the bell they go outside.
