I have joint supplements to give Mia and every day it goes the same way. We fight over if she is going to eat it or not. Even with food, she hates it (and this is the flavored one!). So the first try or two she spits it out, then I look at her and tell her to eat it and she gives me this nasty look and eats it on her own. It cracks me up how she resigns herself.

Ok ok FINE.... Just don't try to shove it in my mouth again.

Yesterday Payton and I ran a 5K together. Before the 5K we were in a building keeping warm and other people and their dogs were milling around. I was keeping Payton off to the side since I never know how other dogs will react to him. A girl came over with her lab mix dog and asked "Can she say hello to him? She loves smaller dogs." I said sure but said he's intact and usually bitches are fine but sometimes dogs don't know what to do with him.
She asked if I was going to breed him. I said we hope to but he still has some health testing to be completed first.

She nodded like she knew what I was talking about but I could tell by the look on her face that she was confused and trying to figure out what I meant.

Is it really that strange? People really don't know??

Maybe it depends on the area but around here, from what I've seen, no one health tests. I had NO idea about it before Chaz. Local breeders I've talked to also seemed a bit baffled by it. "No, their hips are fine. We haven't had any problems with their parents." (And these were not working dogs.)

I think it's a pretty strange thing to consider if you're not really into dogs.

Ned is actually getting 2.

I am a mixture of excited and "DON'T YOU HAVE ANY SELF CONTROL?!"
I want to see them! What collars did they get? And if you say Ned got yellow I will cry though.

Totally not surprised though

You deserve it <3
Thanks so much! Sara, seriously you've been so incredibly helpful and supportive during all this, just thank you so much.

So now I need to brainstorm ideas for classes to pitch!

I hate cold rainy days

Outlaw is going stir crazy and it's too muddy and cold to play fetch. So he's driving me insane!

Shamans previous owner has a new puppy. She didn't even ask about her old one until a tech said something to her. Poor Shaman, even though I know he's better off.

So, who wants a tricolor corgi puppy in 2 months when the new wears off of this one?

They don't, not at all. I sadly work closely with the general public, and very few of the people I get a chance to talk to about dogs know anything about proper care, nutrition, etc.

Even my coworkers, who know something of my obsession with dogs, cannot fathom why I'm keeping Rhys intact if I'm not going to breed him.

People are incredible.

My Mom is convinced that leaving Hudson intact means he is going to die of prostate cancer.

Lol I feel weird that Cajun isn't being spayed like....today. I always used to think it was weird when people waited till after 6 months. Now I'm weird.
