Tonight we said goodbye to the best dog in the whole wide world. We will miss him terribly, and I may blog more about him later, but for now, I’ll just surround myself in this suddenly empty house, wishing I could once again, hear his three-legged gallop as he happily scampered through our house.

in need of a doggy workout
i came home to this last night: Lucy decided that i was gone too long, and needed to take out her aggression on her dog bed. NO, NO, Bad Dog! i lugged out the sewing machine to repair not one, but TWO beds last night. uggh. this cold weather has kept the pups and me […]
whew. OMG. YIPPEE!!!! THOR and I are now an Official Domesti-PUPS “Petting PUPS” Therapy Team In Training! Saturday morning, we got up early, had a good breakfast, leashed up (with Lucy in tow… well, or… towing us!) and went for a good walk/jog/mini-training session. It. Was. Hot… and the session didn’t go as well as […]
MORE Domesti-PUPS Fun!
before i pop out of the office for the day, and rescue my pups from their naps… i wanted to give an update on the whole Domesti-PUPS situation. with my crazy summer travel schedule, I was in Kansas City during the Testing Day for our Domesti-PUPS training group. apparently, this is a big dang deal […]

the truth hurts
this week, i have had two rude awakenings: 1) i added the height extenders on the wii fit… now, it says my balance is better (yea), but it also, now, accurately measures my BMI and weight… uggh. it was so much nicer living under the false realization that it was off by 20 lbs… uggh… […]
Feedback Please: Lucy
Question: is it a bad idea to run my 17-month-old puppy (golden retriever/labrador retriever mix) two-miles, about four times per week? i don’t want to cause hip dysplasia or anything else serious…. any comments would be appreciated!
I think this new training regimen is really throwing THOR for a loop. he is so confused as to why, after the first six years of his life, he now has to sit every five seconds. and the other commands, don’t even think about it- we are still at square-one, people. meanwhile, Lucy is equally […]
This Girl’s Got a Lot of Training To Do!
whew– THOR and I had our first official Domesti-PUPS training session last night… and boy do we need a LOT of work… BOTH of us! I am very excited to be a part of this organization, and once certified, its something we can do together for a long time. My goal is to also train […]
