Thursday again...

YAY! Time to blog for the week :) I've been doing my best to avoid FB, email, cell phones, responsibility...ya---I like it! :) Quiet is best. Helps one clear their mind!

Going to USDAA trial this weekend...I'd rather be on the lake :) Is that bad? LOL My dogs seem to do find with little training...we shall see how that works for me this weekend :) YAY! :)


1. What five things can't you live without?

Diet Coke
Clinique Lip Gloss
Daisy--my guitar :)

2. How do you transport your dogs? This question suggested by several peeps.

We have a mini-van...we call it the SWAGGER WAGON. It fits our 7 dogs and the husband and I :) I'd like to say we are SUPA KEWL...but in reality...yeah, not so much :) Dogs are in crates. No loose dogs, they turn into projectile objects during a car thank you!

3. What role does obedience play in your training or running of your dog(s)?

They need to listen, but not be robots, I think robots are no robot dogs. I like my dogs to think, make decisions and enjoy learning. Not just do only what they are told. Although having Zip knock off the counter surfing might be nice!!!!

4. At what point do you start putting commands on your dogs?

When they are doing the behavior well, if I can bet money they'll perform it, I'll start naming it.

5. Do you talk to strangers in elevators?

SURE! Why not, if they are carrying a bloody hatchet, maybe just a "Hi, how are ya?"...but I talk to anyone :) OK...well, maybe if it was a clown, NO...let me rephrase that....HELL NO. :)

I'm with you on the Clinique Lip Gloss. I can't live without it in Juicy Apple. My favorite for years.

Yeah, no, the only thing freakier than a clown would be a clown in an elevator. Pass!

Best of luck at the trial this weekend - I'm sure you guys will rock it. :)
