What are your plans for the day/evening?

I had an extra day at work, so I am afraid it's lights out by 9 PM. If not, it's gaming.

Today I was cleaning the house, my daughter is out playing with her friends and baby mama is at her parents house spending time their. I have the whole house to myself for now at least and now that I'm done cleaning, it's relaxing and playing anything's showing in my sig below currently playing but I'll start continuing with Control & Witcher 3. I'll be skipping movies this weekend cause there's nothing new I wanna see.

You don't pick up after them right away, or are they the neighbours dogs?

12 years. Damn. Long time. I remember you posting about it in the beginning when you began. Quite different from your previous work, wasn't it? At least in the amount of physical work...?

I'm glad the libraries are open on Saturdays.

You let them out, not walking them?

Yeah, we're one of the few branches that are open seven days a week. We service a rather large community, and they voted to increase our funding in order to extend our hours.

EDIT: Replying to your edit. Yeah, my previous work was call centers. Sitting in cubicles 8 hours a day. I can't imagine going back.

They get a walk but med size dogs shit more than once/twice a day. Typically 3-4 times a day a least for each of them. The older one being deliberately fattened up with a mix of butter/gravy-granules and spoon of olive-oil more so.

That and she can't go a walk anyways as a protection bag is required over her removed toe to prevent infection.

edit - That's dog biscuit with grav/butter/oil giving it to a dog without dry solids really would make a mess.

Ended up watching Blade Runner for like the thirteenth time. I also had a vision test and bought some glasses that will be ready in two weeks. My vision has slightly degraded since I got my last/first pair maybe fourteen years ago. Would have been nice to see the 4K resolution in Blade Runner again with the new glasses. Two weeks isn't too bad, though. I paid 91 dollars for the test and two pairs without insurance.

And, just now I finished The Legend of Korra. I liked it. Found it slightly worse than Avatar, but still good. I wish the creators started developing a cartoon series again. Not like there are many other action cartoons right now. I can only really think of Genndy Tartakovsky's upcoming Adult Swim series. But I don't watch TV, so what do I know?

Sensible community by the sound of it. You know your work is appreciated by the community.

Oh, I thought it was only once a day.

@horgen: Depends on the dog. Something like British Bulldog isn't very active and in some cases, won't even leave the house without the owner being smaller and using less energy most do, only do it once a day in small quantities.

Huskies on the other hand even around the house can be full of energy and around other dogs basically incite each other to play. Let many of them of a leash they will run and not stop. They need fed 3 times a day and need to be careful what you feed them as it can make it worse.

I'm just happy the youngest is doing the toilet out the house now. When my mumsy got them (I inherited the dogs) she was dumb, and didn't train it thinking it was no different from a lab, which is probably the most user-friendly dog you can get.

When a dog poops in the house never chastise it, it will just try to find a place in the home to take a dump when you're not around. After about 3-4 days of just sitting with it, praising it when it done a crap outside and stopping it from crapping in the house, peace was restored to the world.

@uninspiredcup: The difference is greater than I thought. I know huskies are high energy dogs, and that’s about it.

@horgen: Oh yea man, you get good huskies but alot of them will destroy furniture and other stuff when they get bored. Need to be super careful leaving the door open as well, had multiple times where this little shit has managed to get out and took a good 45 minutes to wrangle back.

Had to get the back fence done rebuilt higher and even then you need to be careful.

Fairly expensive dogs but a lot of people still end up giving them away or straight up abandoning them.

Can be total assholes to other dogs as well, this lab by comparison is tame and just gets bitten and bullied constantly.

@uninspiredcup: Damn. That dog wanted to go outside the fence.

A coworker of mine has two I think. I think she prefers the winter, as it wears them out faster.

Finished the first half of the graphic novel The Sandman an hour ago. The stories are really good. I like how they connect, even though they are separate. That first book was 1031 pages long. A tome, really.

Stroopwaffles? From what Google can tell, those sounds delicious.
