Haha BBD! I am more of extrovert. Toby is an introvert so working from home with no other people around sounds like heaven to him...to me...AUGH! But yes, thank goodness for the dogs.

Thanks for sharing your story. It sounds like things are more serious down in your area than they are in my area. Btw, not that it will make you feel any better, but I am sure that the FBI was already looking a peoples' internet usage without a warrant. It (was) illegal of course but I am sure they were doing it anyhow. I think that the initial reaction to the Covid was pretty good, since we didn't know just how bad it might get, but it seems now that things might have been taken a little far and gone on for a little long. The elderly need extra protection, absolutely, but younger people really don't have much to fear from this thing.

Things are beginning to open in Ontario too.

My husband is being called back to the store he works at starting Tuesday. It won't open then, it's getting stuff ready etc. They have masks and gloves for employees.

I am still working from home. I'm going to miss his presence. He'll get to see people at work, I'll be home on my own! Of course, he's an introvert and would love to be home alone, while for me it sounds awful!
It reminds me of something that Gavin Mcinnes once said: If a man is in a happy marriage, he can see other people for only a couple hours a week and his social needs are fully satisfied. Of course my own Dad is not like that at all. He loves to hang around with his buddies. I am more like your husband.

I get what you say about the chicken little people... we have that ap Neighborhood and neighbors are spying on their neighbors and reporting them to police. We had two neighbors ask us what we do because we leave our house and go to our office. Since we sell and service recording equipment to hospitals and drs., plus other recording equipment to 911 centers we say we are sort of essential.... what can I say... we need to make a living! I told the neighbor who asked me the truth. My husband was offended and told the nosy neighbor who asked him that he was a fireman. Ha!... in his dreams!
The above quote reminded me of this video. I believe Kevin James would probably be in SoCal too. Enjoy!

Thanks Capp, I like that. My husband is an introvert for sure. I am happy seeing friends with my husband, I miss him if I go out without him. I always worry we're codependent!

So Toby's been back at the store for awhile, we were told last week we're working from home at least until September. I am trying to leave the dogs alone for at least a portion of each day so that they're used to being on their own...Agis especially as he seems to tend to separation anxiety.

We are going back to the cabins with the dogs this weekend for out anniversary (Saturday) and Toby's birthday (Sunday). 5th wedding anniversary (he says our living together and dating anniversaries stopped counting once we got married, what does he know haha)!

Work on that separation anxiety with Agis...it's good that you know you have some time to plan. He at least has the other dogs for company.
Hope you have a great time at the cabin. Just a warning!! The bugs are bad!!! Between the black flies (slowly leaving), the mosquitoes, and now the deer fly just starting...winter did not look so bad...hahahaha!

Happy Anniversary !!! We just celebrated our 44th.

We find if he's with the other dogs he's fine - but not crated. I don't know why, we worked to acclimatize him to the crate and for awhile it was okay, but he took to cocking his leg and peeing outside of the wire crate, even if he'd just been outside and peed a bunch. We got an airline closed crate and he'd just pee all over himself in there.

So, he's loose in the second bedroom with Neb, and Xerxes is crated because Agis can be a bit boisterous with play and Xerxes is half Agis's size.

Perhaps that's a bad thing, that we didn't solidify him in a crate, but this is what works. He's fine if we leave with that configuration. We had to fool around a bit to come to that.

And since all his crates are now too big to fit in the wagon with actual dogs inside as well, we can't even crate him when we go away. But he has no accidents this way and knows to sit to be let out of the bedroom (we have an extra tall gate that he could clear, but doesn't, so we aren't going to complain about that).

Oh yes the bugs! Ugh! I figured they'd be bad, it's June. We have loaded up on PiActive, find it works as well/better than Deet, but isn't toxic - our vet receptionist was saying she even uses it on her dogs (I might spray their ears).

I AM looking forward to teaching Agis to swim - we've got some floating toys that should be perfect for chasing into the lake!

And thanks! Congrats on 44 years!

Hee hee!

We've been living together for...11 years? Don't remember anymore. So were common-law for a fair bit before legal marriage. But yes, still not that long.

Toby was 46 when we got married (well, 45...his birthday is the day after our wedding anniversary, he wanted to get married on his birthday so he'd never forget our anniversary...but it was a Sunday and I did not want to get married on a Sunday). I am ten years younger - so the one regret I have is that we likely won't make it to our 50th (unless he's VERY long-lived!).

We always joke it's been the longest five years of our lives! hahah!

There is no evidence that animals play an important role in the spread of COVID-19. Based on the limited information available so far, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to humans is considered low. However, because all animals can carry disease-causing pathogens to humans. So it's better to follow healthy habits when living with pets and other animals.

Wash your hands after handling animals, food, waste or their supplies.
Keep good pet hygiene, clean and properly clean them.
Talk to your veterinarian if you have any questions about your pet's health.
Note that children 5 years old and younger, those with weakened immune systems, and older adults are more likely to get bacterial illness in some animals.

I read somewhere that big cats can catch corona. As to how easily they can pass it on to humans.... I know not.
