    Does anybody else play this game? I have been doing it for about two months now and I'm hideously addicted. I am constantly amazed by how creative and clever people are with this. Last weekend I went on an "expedition" with some other local cachers to find the...

    Need registered name help

    You guys are better at this than I am. Hambone is slowly working toward being an Actual flyball dog, and before long I'm going to need to register him with NAFA. (He also needs to play Barn Hunt). But I still have not come up with a good name for him. I'd prefer that it tie in with...

    Brene Brown

    I know somebody else mentioned Brene Brown in the What are you reading? thread. For those who don't know who she is, she is a shame researcher who has written some really excellent books and done a couple of excellent TED talks. I saw her speak at a conference over the summer. She is just...

    Is anyone here knowledgeable enough about Feists to tell me if Ham could legit be one? "Mountain Feist" is what is on his paperwork from the vet who saw him initially in NC, but we just don't see Feists up here, so I am unfamiliar with the type. Not that it matters, particularly, I'm just...

    It's been a long long time, and she's no longer a fan of sitting because of her arthritic knees, but she had SO MUCH FUN. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    For those who missed it, Hambone is my little brown dog I got back in August. He came out of the woods of North Carolina. Maybe a Mountain Feist? He's cute as sin and super sweet. Totally Luce's minion. Modeling his sexy Paco. Wants to be a Barn Hunt dog...

    An update on my pups.

    Hi all. I've not been around here much at all lately. Things are busy and difficult right now. But I thought I'd drop by and give an update on my pups. I lost Mushroom at the end of July (the day before my birthday, actually) to cancer. It was sudden and unexpected and awful, but he went...

    I know that some of you know this from Facebook, but I lost Mushroom on Saturday. He had been coughing for a couple of weeks. I was worried that it was his heart, but when I took him in, the vet thought kennel cough because his chest sounded fine. I took him home on antibiotics and prednisone...

    hamster diet

    Awhile ago I acquired a hamster. Her name is Tina. She has finally stopped threatening my life but she still doesn't like to be touched. Which is fine. She lives in Hamstertopia and has much to do by way of recreational redecorating with nightly runs on the purple hamster wheel of glee. I've...

    Bean's first flyball race

    I picked up Baby! Bean at this flyball tournament last year. I was so excited that he was able to make his flyball debut this year. He did awesome. He ran several heats on Saturday like a pro, and then split heats with Steve on Sunday because he is every bit as fast. I think he's going to end up...

    Bean structure question.

    Bean like never ever stands with his hocks perpendicular to the ground. He pretty much always stands with his rear up underneath him. Would you worry about it (sports wise)? He just turned a year. and this one, just so you can all appreciate his flamboyant tail.

    Baby Bean flyball video

    We don't have him on the box yet, so he's just picking up a stationary ball off the ground in front of the box. Such a good boy! <iframe width="420" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    My adopted family.

    These are some of my agility instructor's dogs. C has been an angel to me over the past couple months, taking all my dogs when I had to spend time inpatient in the nut hut, and allowing us to stay overnight there when I need to not be alone. They have six dogs, but fortunately have a set up...
