It’s been a little while since I posted.. Not much is happening these days with Luna. Her coming into season quiets us all down a bit, well activity and exploration wise. We have had lots of funky weather lately. Between the snow, and then yesterday night rain turned to snow turned to a wintry mix of sleet etc so chris ended up staying home from work. This meant he was on Luna duty for the day, as I had to go to work. They apparently spent the day mostly napping, a little inside play but no ventures outside. She was a little stir crazy by the time I came home. I eventually resorted to stuffing a bone with peanut butter to keep her occupied while I finished up the editing for a client portrait session.
Exercise has been walks and play inside. Her energy level was pretty much normal the first day or two, but she has been calming down as she gets deeper into her cycle. Normally I would have to give her upwards of an hour to two hours (easily) of either running, intensive working walks, exploring, or rollerblading (I don’t know if that link will work, but it’s a little video clip of us rollerblading around a school track). Now an hour (easy/relaxed) walk will easily keep her content for at least 6 hours and then another 20 minute one in the evening and she’s good to retire for the night. The decreased energy level is the only upside to her being in heat.
Speaking of rollerblading, I took her out friday and she was loving it! She hadn’t been for probably at least a month due to work schedules and weather. Sadly, it got dark about 20-30 minutes into it and I was beginning to feel creeped out being on the bike trail, so we had to head back to the car. I did find a new stretch of bike trail to take her on in leesburg when I have a chance.
Alright, well I better go get us both ready for me to leave for work.
Hope you all are staying warm.
