Good luck with her. I see this:

And I can't help but think that's gonna be one hella smart dog. You're gonna have to train her well or else she'll train you. Doesn't Dazed have a blue heeler? Or is she a mix?

Either way, that's an adorable dog, Ded.

Things have been fairly rough going for me lately but as I've posted elsewhere, I'm not necessarily unhappy. I really don't usually publicly share things of such a personal nature, especially online, unless I have suppressed the inhibitions that come with sobriety. Even then, the next day I often regret or feel embarrassed by the level of personal detail I have left scattered throughout the forum and remove most of it. I found myself in a similar situation the other day, but when I went back the following day to edit out some of the more personal details I unexpectedly found that the forum had responded by showing me some love. I should have mentioned this sooner and meant to, but I just wanted to say that this did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. I'm grateful, thank you.

If it will help, we could always belittle you on your choice of clothing. Razz

Just remember the main things are consistency and communicating in a way the dog understands. Having a friend who trains dogs will help a lot I imagine, but you're the ones that have to put in all the work. There are few bad dogs, there are mainly poor owners. A tired dog is a good dog. Make her work and you'll all be happy. Very Happy

Anytime Finn!

I taught class yesterday, including showing a few moves I probably shouldn't have (and I knew it was moves that pull as soon as I did them). However, I hurt far less today than I expected!

Smart dogs are a mixed blessing indeed, but definitely more a lot more ++++ in my experience.

My own minor joy is just learning that Ryan North, of Dinosaur Comics, is a writing for the Adventure Time comic.
Oh. My. Glob.

I don't have any cats. At least not in my current home.

Unless, I think Dazed just called me a pussy...

She's beautiful! Good luck. Fiance and I got a dog from a foster group a few months back. We know she was neglected prior to being surrendered to the shelter, we're *pretty* sure she was abused, too. She's getting a *lot* better now, though. She initially growls and barks now when we bring people she doesn't know over, instead of just cowering in a corner!
(Seriously we are actually happy and excited by this change)
I really hope I never encounter the former owners. (Or, know I've encountered them?), 'cause I like not having a felony record....

And oh hey petfinders, I know someone who works for them.

Also yeah, take care, that's the kind of dog that's gonna nick yer keys and drive to the Bahamas!

For quite some time (months?), my coffee grinder has been defective. It's one of those works like a tiny blender, but the tip one of the blades actually came off. While the grinder still worked, it was a lot noisier than before and felt a little unsafe (I'm not sure what that says about me that I continued to use it for months).

Anyway, I ordered a new burr grinder and just used it for the first time this morning. Much quieter, infinitely easier to use, and it helped make two damn fine cups of coffee this morning. I am pleased.

I love coming to this page and seeing the things that make our sinfesters happy. Smile

YAY for new dogs! I have wanted one for awhile, but I am not home enough to make sure it goes out through the day. McBiscuit (my kitty) is just enough for me to handle until I get done with Army, or find a roommate (Not looking so that one will be awhile.)

I gave up coffee a few weeks ago because I was drinking an Iced Americano with an extra shot of espresso daily. Drinking a lot of tea now Smile Feeling pretty healthy, between that and beginning to eat better/take better care if myself.

I had been struggling to find a place to live within easy distance of my new job because the village the pub is in is quite affluent. After discussing my budget with my employer she volunteered to pay the difference between my budget and any nearby homes. So I went from constant commute & headaches, to £600 wage increase & a nice place TWO MINUTES WALK from my job!

Gary one day you and I are going to have to sit down and have a long conversation about how pubs work there vs how they work here.


I suspect you'll be at least a little horrified.
