Howl, Howl and Howl Again.

Sling Shot.

Bit of a nightmare night last night – we have got into the habit of letting Phoenix sleep on the sofa with us, and then when she’s put to  bed, she’s too rested to sleep and starts howling. Which she did for quite some time.  Our books all say different things about what to do. Some say to ignore it, some say to comfort her. We tried ignoring and that didn’t go down too well. Tim got up and comforted her which settled her, but poor old Phoenix had a bad night overall.

The overall problem is Phoneix’s waking/sleeping schedule is out of sync with ours. Whatever we try to do to keep her awake later in the evening, she still crashes out at 8.00pm and then wakes up at 5.00am (with a toilet break in between).

This week the ringcraft and training courses start so hopefully that will allow us to alter her routine and get everyone synchronised…

Phoenix also has an itchy paw, we had a look and couldn’t find anything but it’s annoying her.

Good training session in the kitchen today: we’ve found that limiting the space helps to focus her more and stops her wandering off to chew random objects.  Like us.
