I have really let Cara's leash manners slip in the past few months and let's just say our LLW is not where it should be. SO I ordered some freeze dried beef liver in the anticipation of getting to down to business and getting her back on track. The liver came in the mail today and Cara thinks it's the best thing ever and it's made working on leash manners so much easier.

For the first time, my Zoo paycheck is bigger than my vet clinic paycheck. $300 from the clinic, and about $370 from the zoo. WOOO HOOOOOOO!

This is a big step towards leaving the clinic and relying just on the zoo - which is one of my goals for the year. I've been volunteering for whatever extra hours they want to give me. This position is supposed to be 8 hours a week, but I've been averaging closer to 25 hours a week. My clinic job was previously 25 hours a week on a good week, and now I'm averaging closer to 12 hours a week. This week I was only supposed to get 6 hours (plus 4 hours for holiday) at the clinic, but I had to trade weekends to work at the zoo more, so I'm working 16 hours (plus 4 hours holiday).

The people at the clinic are NOT happy about this (except for my friends, they're happy for me, and have visited me at the zoo), but I'm THRILLED


ETA: This news also came immediately after hearing about all the tax crap at the start of this year, so I figured it would be a tiny check (the clinic paycheck was dated December 31, even though I didn't get it until the 2nd). I was double happy lol

I took some photos for work to see if I could do anything or if they would want to hire a photographer.
They like my photos and are going to just use me instead of hiring out.

Where's that banana dance gif? Aw yeah.

I just bought a tripod!!! Was going to order it last night, but the money bothered me... went to just check it today, and it's half price!

So I found this dude on fb that I used to have a crush on in middle school and we're messaging back and forth and I really like him and he said I was pretty. But he lives in Texas so it'll probably just be a long distance friends thing but that's okay with me. For now it just makes me smile.

Not into long distance relationships? They can be roller coasters, that's for sure.

I was so worried Gwen would regress to being a scared, pissed off dog when we got her back from the kennel, but she has settled so well. It was crazy excitement for 15 minutes and then just back to normal. I'm so glad she (still) feels comfortable here.
