    Chicago Meet Up?

    I think we talked about doing it in June or July this year? I'll be taking summer classes, but I REALLY hope I'll be able to come, I had so much fun last time.

    Let's Be Controversial

    Ooh can I be a dick? I'm gonna be a dick. Dalmatian breeders actually freak me the **** out. It's not even that they cull, it's that deafness can't be determined until 6 weeks, so they have these puppies for six weeks, and then load up a group of happy, wiggly puppies that they've been living...

    The best hobbies. Aside from dogs, I'm really into fishkeeping, and as soon as I move out of my apartment I'd like to get into reptiles and maybe tarantulas. I play piano and clarinet. I like video games. I have a horse and used to ride all the time, but I've been consumed by school...

    Secret Santa Reveal

    I came home from the zoo today to my SS package! Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, I've lost my camera's memory card, sadness. For me? Ohh yes. A kong, which is PERFECT because Finn's has been lost for a year and I've been too lazy to get him another. And a puzzle...

    It's been a while since I've posted pictures, so here are some I took about a month ago and am just now getting around to posting haha. Nothing too exciting, just us playing around in the backyard! He accidently bit Cory's finger while grabbing a ball, and they...

    Doggie Christmas

    I really need to get Finn a 10 foot long line for nosework; his 50 foot that I use for hiking is wayyyy too long for that. I have to wait until January until there's an ORT within reasonable driving distance, so I've been putting it off and I probably won't order it until after Christmas, but I...

    Tuck sit HELP

    Finn isn't an IPO dog haha, but yeah, I have both a tuck sit and a "pet sit" trained on him. I know they seem similar to us, but to a dog they're pretty distinct behaviors, and you can teach them separately from each other! Just make sure you use a different cue for the tuck sit. I just use...
