Had a hella good time at bitework. Talked with lots of people, made some new friends, and my dog was on fire. Last week, after a 2 wk gap with no training, she was a little shallow in her grips and acting tired. No such issues tonight.

There were some new people there with an American Bulldog that had been "trained" somewhere else by harassing/terrifying him into defensive bites. They had no idea that wasn't how it was supposed to go. But Blossom got to be the example of what a properly started, comfortable, confident, green dog should look like while working in prey drive.

And she was quiet and settled in her kennel when not working, no bark collar needed! Good girl.

Now to beat back this crazy headache.

I'm at an allergy specialist, just heard that I am NOT allergic to dogs or cats, among other things. So relieved.

I just sat a TWO-HOUR exam with Logan. That's the longest he's had to stay in one spot and be quiet since we saw Les Mis in Kansas City when he was a year and a half. He did not make a sound. I'm so happy

(Usually tests aren't this long, but it was an essay test, and he asked about dogs and communication, so...)

Totally just got a tooth brush and tooth paste (vanilla mint flavor! Yum!) for the dogs. Totally just made them all succumb to my BRUSH ALL THE TEETH mood. I'm hoping that if I can stick with it, I may not have a Dachshund and Yorkie mouth dental in my future...and I can keep Cynder's getting-up-there-in-age teeth still looking good.

My favorite cooking show is on demand for free.

I know what I'm doing with my Sunday off!

Do they like it? lol mine hate the vanilla/minty ones. Poultry and beef all the way! I've started getting mine from Dr Fosters & Smith and their poultry one actually smells... pleasant. So win-win.


Something about today was fulfilling. I tend to lose sight of what actually drew me to this job in the first place, and find myself thinking like everyone else - "it's a job and work sucks." I get annoyed when we're super busy or when people call in last minute "needing" to be seen NAO. Somehow today I was able to let go of that, appreciate the job for what it is, and now I'm looking at tomorrow with a "bring it on" attitude. Although it does still upset me that it's Saturday and I don't get to sleep in.

I had a pay garnishment going on for about a year. I don't make enough to actually be garnished, so a total of maybe $100 over the last year had been sent in. Today my boss informed me the company had released the garnishment, and so I'm no longer under threat to have my pay taken if I ever actually made enough to be taken. In short, it doesn't change anything. But it means I can possibly find a full-time job and actually be able to LIVE off of it some time! (The garnishment said that anything over $471 per pay check would be garnished, and I get paid twice monthly).
