That link landed on a Google shopping search but was probably tied to my account somehow. The term is "Fiskars Pruning Stik Tree Pruner, 1.25"" Not sure what the 1.25 is, maybe the length of the blade?

I am pleased with myself this morning that the trash went to the curb on time; the trash guys shifted to their earlier schedule (they do every spring when it gets hot out) and I missed them two times in a row. It's not like there's a lot, but there are some fish wrappers in there.

I put a new battery in the collar that I've had the lab Zeke wearing for a couple of days. I was trying to get him to stay back from the fence, but this morning I kept hearing something while I was scooping droppings for the compost - and realize the deaf old dog was prowling the fence line looking for tender grass. He can't hear the beep and his coat is thick enough I guess he wasn't feeling the static shock. The puppy's collar has a bigger clout but won't fit on him, so for now I simply put a new battery in the one he was wearing. I need to get a couple of collars and drench them with the "Yuck" stuff and have them available for swapping out those collar units on the different dogs. The two younger dogs usually wear them all of the time.

The puppy recently noticed the window blind was up in my office and was on her hind legs looking out at the yard. I need to discourage that; it's a nice insulating blind and I don't need a dog destroying it. Since the office is at the front of the house I don't want a view into the room with computer equipment. When I had cats they were really hard on the mini-blinds. As it is she's really hard on dog stuff (I stitched together a hole in a dog bed that she keeps revisiting in order to pull through the comforter inside to pull out the stuffing. Same hole, not tearing a new one. Odd.)
