    Right on @Fontanafox

    I was gonna say put on your dog walking outfit --- early, early in the morning -- and run em around the block. Tired dogs are less likely to cause shenanigans.

    @Saalwi - don't you give Valerian root? Would that help her?

    i might have slipped sarah a benadryl or two some nights she dont wanna sleep and i have to work in the am. @cali baker i agree a good walk or even a car ride tires sarah out.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    Yesterday was just a mixed bag for those two, I think, with the handyman coming over, then the cable guy, then hearing some loud booms 'cuz of fireworks. Finn was acting pretty ornery too. I took them for a good walk in the a.m. hoping that would konk them out for the day.

    Well, today is a new day and I took each of them out separately for a vigorous walk. Right now Tate is snoring away on my lap, and Finn is asleep on his favorite ottoman. Ahh, peace and quiet...I love the sound of bully snores!!

    Glad today is more peaceful ... Daddy and Linus have their mad days ... today is one of them. They both slept all day yesterday and today they are bouncing off the walls. It is so warm here that we can't even let them run loose in the back yard like we normally do .... for example, during the night it was mid to high 70s with horrendous humidity!!!

    butler gets two benadryl every morning and every evening. he's not a hyper guy, but it seems to have no effect on him (calm-wise). @2BullyMama if Butler had a prescription for Xanax, i would probably be dipping in to his stash all the time. lol.

    Do my sweetie pies ever drive me crazy you ask? YES just about every day but I love them all the same. Emma has yet to learn her boundries with Wilson when he has toy he wants (which aren't many sense he has a hard time holding them). They got into another battle the other day - more noise than anything. I had to grab Wilson by the back legs and drag him away but she wouldn't back off. She's very possessive and I'm sure we're going to have a few good battle wounds over the years to come.

    Wasn't the individual walk nice? I love doing that with mine.
