Have been talking with the Society of Rangeland Management and they are going to try to help me get in touch with a few different people so that I can get on track to a major, somehow.

Let's hope this gets me somewhere.

I am kind of bummed to give up my Fridays but Denis just got four tens with Monday off so I'm switching to Monday off instead of Friday. It will be nice to have an extra day with him even if its not Friday.

Harness making is going MUCH more smoothly today, thanks to proper needles. Though I probably need to go get more before the day is over.

I GOT MY FRAGGLE ROCK PACKAGE! The lure slip is SO FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! The martingale is fantastic, too, but I just can't get over this lure slip!

I also got my smoothie mix from Big Fat Gecko. We'll see how Jagger likes this stuff. I like the ingredients better than Repashy.

AND I got a Netflix DVD. It's just awesome mail day, today.

I just got an email forwarded to me from my trainer, from a client we have that finished their CGC class last night and had a lot of reactivity trouble and were going to return their dog to the SPCA had it not gotten better. Of course, to make matters worse, they were lied to about the dog getting along with other dogs, but her reactivity was really what held them back. This email made me feel AWESOME, especially since it was the first class I've taught. Names changed (other than mine) for confidentiality.

"We just finished a Good Citizen class with Jane and Danielle. Our dog, Sophie, presented quite a challenge. We rescued her in Jan from SPCA and she had been there approx. 6 months. She had a lot of reactive barking and we're still not sure how friendly she is with other dogs.

On the first night it was clear that we couldn't be with the other dogs as she wouldn't stop barking. Basically for the next several weeks we had private training with Danielle and she was excellent. She really knew how to work with Sophie and by the last class for us, which was last night, Sophie made it into the classroom with the other dogs for about 5 minutes.

We're leaving for vacation tomorrow and when we get back we're going to sign up for another class. Hopefully, Sophie will continue to improve and maybe we can be part of the class more.

We really appreciated Jane and Danielle working with us because Sophie was quite disruptive. They gave us a lot of encouragement.

Just wanted you to know that Danielle especially, because we worked basically with her, is awesome and gave us lots of hope and encouragement for our future with Sophie."

Makes my heart melt. This is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

For the first time, I took all 3 dogs on a walk together. And it went beautifully. I felt pretty cool walking along with my well behaved pack trotting at my side.

I kept my tongue in check and did not verbally abuse anyone today. As much as I wanted to.

Saw a couple former coworkers and got to chat with them, got a yummy breakfast and lunch for freeeee, get to chill out and enjoy my evening and still have tomorrow off!

It feels so good when Talon get's complimented not only on his looks, but also his personality! A couple with a gorgeous red Kelpie were at the dog park and they where in love with Talon. They said he was gorgeous but more than anything they loved that he seemed so intense on his work, but not obsessively. He would work on his fetching and frisbee, but when we say "all done, go play" he happily goes and plays with the other dogs. ^_^ It's really not training, it's just him, but still feels good lol
