Mojo's 14.75 lbs as of this morning. He seems to have lost some weight, probably because he's been eating less. We haven't been going to the park as often, so he's been mostly idle at home.

He's had an exciting time, since the in-laws have arrived. He really, really loves new people, especially when they stay around :)

The other day we successfully brought him to lunch (we put him in the sherpa under our table), Best Buy (for some reason they allow dogs), and a few other places. He was fine in the car (it was overcast and cold, no chance of overheating & dehydration), and was pooped when we got home. I guess the large number of new places was, in the end, overwhelming...though he was really perky pretty much everywhere.

Today, he ripped open a packet of coconut milk (dehydrated, just add water) that Ela had lying around and ate a bunch of it. He subsequently barfed it up, creating a wet mass that smelled vaguely like the tropics. Until then, I never realized how many little things Mojo ate when we went on walks. There they were, surrounded by white, milky dog barf. It's like they were brought in by the tide.

We also got some new treats the other day. They're "Grandma Lucy's Garlic Chicken and Rice balls." They're dehydrated treats, and the idea sounded good. Well, they caused the dreaded doggy diarrhea. Oh no! I should have remembered what happened with the raw turkey stuff...except this stuff isn't raw. It's also approved for human consumption, whatever that means. People eat dirt, and like it. I'm not going to be trying dirt or the Chicken Balls anytime soon. Maybe we'll feed them to unsuspecting guests?
