Every time that I steward at an obedience trial I think about how much I'd love to try obedience. Then I get home and I realize that I actually have very little interest in playing obedience or training for obedience. It's one of my favorite sports to watch, I think a good team and a nice run are a thing of beauty, but really it's just not for me. But it happens every time!

Rave for Riffers: My older brother moved in with us on Monday. Riff's never met him before, and he hits both of Riff's major "scary" triggers: tall and male. The first couple of days were rough, but Riff has warmed up to him REALLY quickly. He's crazy about him! Riff still gets scared (startled, more like) if Tyler comes around a corner quick, but in less than a week he's made a huge improvement. AND, Jeromy came over the other day (also tall and male) and Riff did not react as strongly to him as usual, so I think having Tyler around all the time is helping to desensitize him in general. Yay!

Recon's solution for the IQ treat ball? Slam it into the walls as hard as possible until it breaks open and the goods fly everywhere.

This means he has a high IQ, right?

A sweet, strange dog showed up at the gait of my fence earlier when I was brining Pirate inside. Nearly had a fence fight but I picked Pirate up and carried him inside. I didn't catch the dog when I had the chance and now I'm feeling sick. I came inside and then back out and he's gone. I'm really worried about him. He had a sore on his head, above his eye and one on his neck. No collar, intact male. Labrador-type with a GSD saddle. I think this is the same dog I saw on our walk the other night. It's pretty cold out right now and if someone calls the sheriff, they'll likely shoot him (they did this even when we did have a shelter and A/C, which we don't now).

Baby dog has a UTI. I was actually kind of relieved to see all those white blood cells under the microscope lol. This dog is like incapable of holding urine for more than an hour and pees in her crate basically every single time she's in it (and the longest she's in it is overnight - for 7 hours), so I really, REALLY hope this is the reason why. I've been trying to accept that this is just the way she is, but it dawned on me yesterday that maybe there's actually something else going on.

Makes me laugh because whenever people come to the clinic with their 3 month old puppies CONVINCED they have a UTI because they're peeing in the house, I'm always thinking to myself "probably more like you just need to train it." And now I'm one of those people.

Went to the vet Monday for routine checkups and a DEPO shot for Bear for allergies because he was licking his feet and belly raw. Everything was fine ... Except that Bear ... Who is almost 14 acted like N overstimulated puppy and Josefina almost took the face off a puppy who (albeit deservingly) stuck his face in her butt, very rudely.

Sigh ... Gotta love trips to the vet.

I was so happy to have Abrams not tinkling by my door in the morning...only to discover its because he now tinkles in his crate right before I let him out. So his bedding was removed and now he just has his plastic crate bottom to sleep on. He is not impressed. I now get looks if disgust when I put him up and I hear him clanging around in his crate during the night trying to get his crate cover through the bars of the cage so he can lay in it.

Well, maybe if you wouldn't freaking pee on everything, my good sir, you could have a squishy blanket to sleep on. Not my fault.
