Well, come spring the soil in the flower bed around my place should be pretty fertile. It's the only place Bea will potty now with the snow! She'll walk on, lick, and eat the snow, but she won't potty on it! She had been using her puppy pad for a couple of days until last night when she finally went in the flower bed! YEAH! Now if she'd just poo outside! I took her for a long walk the other night when it was warmer, but she didn't want to go on the snow. Grrr...stubborn Dachshunds! :)
And on another note...STUPID DES MOINES REGISTER DELIVERY GUY!!!! This morning I was outside with Bea a little before 6:00. I try to make her stay quiet, and if she barks I tell her no. Well, she heard the delivery guy walking, and barked at him. I told her no, but then the delivery guy started barking back at her! I took her straight inside before he walked past my place. I've talked to him before when he's walked by, but the last time we saw him he started barking, too. It just gets Bea worked up, and I don't want to wake everyone else up! So I decided we'd just go inside until he left. What a MORON!
