My stomach is starting to get a bit knotted thinking about not seeing Jackson for that long. As you probably know by now, I’m obsessed with that dog. I have truly never loved something so much. I came home from running errands the other day and every time I let Jackson out of his kennel, I sit on the floor with him and rub his belly and tell him how wonderful he is while he wiggles his butt with excitement. Well, I was doing my normal loving act and the boyfriend came home with one of his friends and I didn’t notice them until they pushed the bedroom door open and stared at me like I was a complete, utter weirdo. Which I am, but it’s still a bit humiliating. I know other people do the same thing. They have to. How can you not be as excited as the dog is every time you see them? I think it’s normal. Anywho, I’m going to miss the crap out of him.

Speaking of Jackson, he’s developed an odd and unattractive habit: he barks at little kids. He’s not around them a ton, but he still sees them at the gym and has played with them in the past with no issue. Then one day, he just started barking at them and backing away like he doesn’t like them. I don’t get it. My first thought is that he doesn’t like how small they are and kids tend to pet dogs in a non fun way. But I don’t really know. I’m hoping this habit goes away with time and being around more kids, but have any of you had to deal with this annoying quality in your dog? I need advice. Or maybe a dog whisperer.

OMG. They have chocolate cinnamon toast crunch cereal nowadays. I’m not going to even act like that doesn’t sound amazing.

Have you tried out Formulx protein powder yet? It’s my favorite protein powder brand so far! I’m not a person who drinks protein shakes after every single workout, but if I do a workout that truly kicks my ass or if I just need a bigger and more satisfying snack during the day, Formulx is what I turn to. I also put it in my coffee to make iced mochas! It’s so great.
