Well, it hasn't seemed like anything too exciting has been going on here lately (I haven't even taken any photos!).. but I suppose some of you may be interested in what Gibson has been up to!
Let's see.. um, well last night he woke us up to poop 3 times. Fun stuff! I actually ended up sleeping on the couch so I was closer to the door if he needed to go out again. Not sure what that was all about. Here's hoping for a less poopy night!!
This past weekend we went to my parents house and Gibson had the time of his life. We got to take the fun walk through the woods around the lake for the first time this year and guess what he did... He JUMPED in the lake! I know, I couldn't believe it. My mom always chucks the ball for Coal across the lake onto the other side..and she jumps into the lake, swims across, finds the ball and swims back. It's impressive. Usually, Gibson just stands and cries and barks until she gets back, but this time he jumped in! With no hesitation. And got some air! It was awesome. Another moment where I wish I had my camera.. but basically, he looked like this:
...only picture cold murky lake water instead of a nice warm pool. He was so excited to jump in, but as soon as he did he swam out a tiny bit and then circled around with that look on his face like, "holy crud it is freezing!" He still thought he was pretty cool though ;)
Spring is finally starting to pop up and Gibson is a happy dude. Walks are way more fun now that it isn't freezing. We now walk 2 miles almost every morning! It is crazy, but it makes Gibby happy. He gets so sad when I do not walk the way he wants to go (geez, I'm a pushover).. so we keep going. I can't complain though.. it's good exercise and it lets me spend more time with the pup!
Spring also means it's chucking season! Playing fetch outside is way more fun and gives Gibson a much better work out.. which means less whining to play and an earlier bedtime. Score!
Well, I think that's it for now. Hopefully there'll be more to talk about soon!
