Our new boy Rex continues to grow up. As of this week, he is 16 weeks old and is smart as a whip. Though he still pushes the edge of the envelope as he grows up, and learns about new things he can do, we have to work with him to establish his limits of what is acceptable. This week, he weighed in at a robust 26 pounds! He has gained 17 pounds in the seven weeks that we have had him in our pack. Rex is getting along really well with Rosie and Charlie. Rosie and rex are getting along better than either of us thought he would. So, all in all, Rex is fitting in well.
The fourth of July was a rough one on Rosie, despite using music and a thunder shirt, she was really having a rough time. We tried giving her some Trazadone from the Veterinarian, she was still really worked up. From a scale of 1 to 10, Rosie being and absolute wreck, she was an 8 with the thunder shirt and music, and a 7 with the trazadone added on board.
One of the things that Eric is doing these days while working for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is doing support for Salesforce development. Eric attended the Salesforce developers conference in San Francisco. There was a lot of good information to be had and about 5,000 attendees. There is a Salesforce Users conference held in November also in San Francisco. That event has over 150,000 attendees. That is just too many people for Eric to feel comfortable with. The best part about going to the Salesforce Developers conference was for him to be able to hook up with his nephew Marq who is corporate lawyer that works in San Francisco.
