Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Somewhere outside Manhattan, Kansas

We are hip deep in Heartworm Treatment Territory at 504 Sheraton these days, and lo, they are long days. June 27th cannot come soon enough.  Keeping a young dog on “bed rest” for 10 weeks is the experiential equvalent of driving across the entire state of Kansas with a three year old child strapped in the back seat. THERE IS NO WINNING. There is only surviving.

Things Columbo likes to do:

  • run
  • jump*
  • gambol
  • wrestle
  • monitor the fenceline for intruders
  • bark at shit
  • eat (anything)

Things Columbo is allowed to do:

  • eat (dog food)
  • sleep

It is a festival of FAIL at our house these days, and there’s really not that much we can do about it. Lord knows I’d be gnawing on the upholstery too if I had no forebrain and was being kept indoors 23 1/2 hours a day, every day.

So far he’s done very little actual damage – lucky for us he seems to enjoy gumming more than ripping and shredding. 



*Columbo is a boxer mix, and he jumps up and down JUST LIKE THIS:








  1. It’s like their little footpads are made of trampolines.

  2. Hahahahaha….. 🙂 The only difference with the Kansas trip is that David probably had more fun than poor Columbo!
