Not sure if Idexx is used there, but they have their own allergy testing now. It's a bit more reasonable than VARL and, of course, there's the discount and/or free benefit

YES I AM AWARE I AM WAY TOO INVOLVED IN FICTIONAL CHARACTERS

AND NO I DON'T CARE

PEOPLE NEED TO READ THE BOOKS AND TELL ME SANSA ISN'T A FRIKIN GEM

A GEM I TELL YOU!
I'm not the biggest Sansa fan, but I don't dislike her. I like the show's version better than the books, though.

Don't talk about Falon that way

I'm so sick of waking up and EVERYTHING HURTING ARGH. Either I go to sleep and wake up with a pinched nerve in my neck, an extremely sore body, a super sore jaw, or combinations of the above. It doesn't set me up for a happy day.

Leggy puppy has essentially outgrown (height-wise) his bedroom crate. Thank heavens someone gave me a slightly larger crate (a vari-kennel though it may be) which we've been using as the living room crate.

I think they're too high up to be a lymph node. At first I thought maybe a spider bite, but they aren't irritated or perfectly circular, just slightly swollen and firm. If they get bigger/worse or aren't gone in a day or two I'm going to get them checked out. Right now they are just super annoying. And of course I want to poke and prod at them and that makes it worse. Ugh.

Mine was up fairly high. It was the source of much mystery because apparently the lymphatic system drains downward, which means I should have had a cut or sore on my scalp that was draining downward, except.... I didn't. LOL

Went to doctor. Doctor tells me she won't/can't do anything, go back to hospital. Yah, no. Not waiting again, not today.

While waiting for doctor appt, I get an email from training client. The dog is very sick, pneumonia suspected.

Walking home, my sandal broke. Had to walk home shoeless, and look like that person.



It's not yet noon. I need a redo.

So, I put a lot of effort into my dogs. Some might say too much. So when I feel like I'm not seeing rewards for my efforts it puts me into a bit of a funk.

I'm part of a dog performance group. We do shows incorporating agility, high jump, disc, races, relays, tricks and games to showcase dog training to the public. We just booked a big show which historically has been loads of fun with huge crowds and is definitely the flower in my group's cap as far as our booked venues go. The show is in a few weeks. I found out that I was passed over for invites this time around. What's worse, I feel like I can bring more to the table with my dogs than at least a few of the other people who were asked to attend.

So now I'm all butt hurt about it. I work hard to keep their skills up to date, and I consider many team members friends. So I get all emotionally invested in something that, I'm reminded, is run as more of a business. It makes me want to invest less of my free time and effort into the group of which, up until now, I've felt like a key member.

Bleh. I just want to go and play with my dogs.

Oh I was just complaining about this. When I look over the bed and all I can see are Aikon's ears popping through the crate...and he looks like the hunch back...I realize that he needs to size up...again!
