Evening Walks

Hello again, friends!  Look who’s blogging again like a good girl!  I keep my promises. :)

Diesel usually gets 2 walks a day.  One in the morning with me, since he wakes me up at 5am and I figure I have nothing better to do than take him for a walk, and one in the evening with both Jerm and me.  The other night I decided that I was going to bring the camera and take some “action shots” of our walk.

We have a very active and friendly neighborhood, so people are always out walking their dogs or playing with them in the park.  Over the past few months, people have begun to recognize us and some like to come up, pet Diesel and tell us how pretty he is.


Good boy, sit down!  (We make him sit before crossing the street)

Diesel has gotten a lot better at walking since he was a puppy, and I credit most of that to the harness that we got him.  He used to just attach his leash to his collar, but he would pull and tug to the point where he was making it hard for himself to breath.  So, we bought a “Gentle Leader” harness and our walks are smooth sailing now.


Hi, I’m Diesel.


He’s possessed. (dang, that flash on the camera)

While walking this past week, we came across some wet cement that didn’t have a sign or barrier or anything near it.  Isn’t that stupid?  If I were a construction worker, who just poured wet cement, I would try to make sure that no one messed it up.  Apparently, that’s just me though because there is now a piece of cement in our neighborhood that has the imprint of Jeremy’s flip flop, my Adidas and Diesel’s paws.


As our walk concluded, we  got near a house that we walk by all the time.  We’ve seen the lady in her yard and looking out her kitchen window before.  Well, she saw the flash of the camera as I was taking a picture of Diesel and then she came out and asked if I wanted a picture of the three of us.  Sure!  See, people in our neighborhood are SO nice, aren’t they?  Thank you, nice neighbor lady!

No Update Since When??

Hello, hello all! How is everybody today?  Well, in case you all thought that Jeremy, Diesel and I died, there is no need to worry because we are indeed alive!  I can't believe August is almost over that I haven't updated since August 2nd.  What kind of blogger am I?  Apparently, not a good one...

Anyways, so what's new in the Bofferding house? Hmmm...not much sadly.  This is why I've sucked at blogging for the past month. Hmmm...I'm sure I could come up with something that's been going on...let me think.  I've got it!  I'll give you all a bunch of mini updates, since nothing major has happened and then I promise...mark my words...I PROMISE, that I'll get back to blogging regularly on this blog and my cooking blog!  So, since our last post:

1. Diesel has gained about 6lbs and is now weighing in at the grand total of 66lbs! He's huge. I was looking at pictures from when we first got him and I can't believe he was ever so small.IMG_1750 IMG_1745

2. Diesel has outgrown his crate as his bed! He still sleeps in our bedroom but now he lays on a blanket, on the floor, near my side of the bed. When we got back from our vacation, we started leaving the door of his crate open at night. Then a few days later, I left a blanket on the floor...and the rest is history.

3. Diesel now thinks he can lay on our bed too. He's not allowed on the furniture, but about a week ago, Jerm thought it'd be fun to call Diesel up onto our bed. He loved it and immediately laid in our pillows. The next day I called him up onto the bed again, so I could get a picture (he's just SO cute in the pillows!). Bad idea, he now thinks he can get up there all the time (dumb move, on our part!). Needless to say, we are now dealing with the ongoing battle of getting a 66lb dog off the bed, when he's stubborn and not supposed to be there.

4. Jerm's work got a "union." Good thing? Bad thing? I don't know the details, but he gets a slight it can't be so bad, right?

5. At my work, I've officially taken over as the Admissions Counselor for Southern California. Sunshine, beach, great shopping and Disneyland, here I come! (After I complete all my work there, of course.)


6. Speaking of work, my travel season kicks off in about 2 weeks, so if anyone is willing to come by to feed Jeremy and Diesel while I'm gone, please let me know. I'm a bit worried about what I'll come back to. :-)

Ok, I think that’s all for now.  I will keep up with posting and they will be more entertaining than this one.  Promise!

The Weekend

I took this picture Friday night and it think it sums up our weekend.
