The rescue wants a behaviorist to evaluate Uly and give us the green light to place him, I told them a veterinary behaviorist would be ideal. Then we all learned that it costs $500 to see a veterinary behaviorist.

Simi would like you to know she's only about 23 inches tall, and maybe MAYBE 65lbs! (Not certain on her weight, but she's a very petite dog.)
Last GSD I trained was maybe 24 inches tall and about 65 pounds all muscled up. :) (Of course, he was a Malinois in a GSD suit lol, even though he was definitely a purebred GSD :p )

Want! I appreciate their size but at the same time I like to think twiggy little me could physically shift my dog in an emergency, and that sounds perfect.

I love that this crazy little Toller baby is an excellent tugger. Tollers aren't generally known for tugging. But I don't love the puncture she left in me when she missed her tug earlier haha. Ouch. It still hurts like an hour later.

ummm...Wilson is playing tug of war with Sam's ear beards? Sam doesn't seem to care. Is this...an acceptable thing? I feel like there is no way that's pleasant for Sam but at the same time he is definitely the type to tell other dogs to back off if he doesn't like something?

I have a Traveler dog!

I was standing by a water fountain when I called Leo to me. I guess he wasn't exactly sure what I wanted, so he leaped onto the water fountain and perched there.

This made me unreasonably excited :D

My aunt and uncle's breeder has decided she might keep the only yellow female in the litter, boo! They are not willing to do a different color so now we have to try to find another breeder which most likely means they'll have to wait longer now. I really hope they stick with a good breeder and don't cave and go to some BYB. The breeder may decide to put the pup up for sale closer to 8 weeks if she doesn't end up being what she's looking for and my uncle told her they're still interested if that happens but I don't hold out much hope. I'm way more sad than I should be, I feel like I'm the one not getting a puppy.

Sure they don't want a black male pup? =P (Sherman will be ready to go in two weeks, I hope!)

In all seriousness, though, that really sucks. :( I hope it will work out, though. Abrams was originally reserved for someone else when the litter was born, but they backed out when he was a few weeks old. Hope something similar happens with your Aunt and Uncle!

A serious family emergency happened and I had to back out of my purchase of the little female form Lincoln's litter, then the person who had put down a deport on her after me almost backed out too ... but they need up taking her, so I took Lincoln. I don't know why no one wanted him, he is a stunning puppy with a pretty cool temperament and awesome conformation. I suppose it might be because he doesn't have flashy markings ... isn't a merle, or doesn't have blue eyes.

Still, their loss, my gain.

My dogs were TERRIBLY behaved at the park today and it was horribly sad. Well mostly Cajun was terrible, and then I was just so mad and frustrated at her that I was easily annoyed by Juno. I hate days like this.

Josefina was totally off of it at agility this passed week, like I get it, dog. You missed two weeks but geeze! I mean she was like "la la I don't remember anything!" Grrrrr. -_-

Jari. I leave you for 10 days and you have free roam of the house on little exercise and everything is fine. I leave to go to my parents' for a few hours and you tear a giant hole in the carpet. Does not compute. Why you do this. You just had agility this morning and did the whole demo dog thing. ARGH.

Got to play with the stumpy litter again today. They are absolutely ridiculous. Almost four weeks and already think biting me and running away is the best thing ever. The last time I spent this much time with a litter it was baby labs and I don't remember them being this...violent.

I have officially left Fable with a sitter for the first time ever. And I feel terrible. Just the look she gave me as I walked out the door wrenched my heart. It didn't help that I dropped her off at the dog rescue I volunteer for (and where I adopted her from), because the lady that is watching her is one of the owners and she couldn't take Fable back to her place until they closed the rescue for the night. Fable won't be staying at the rescue, but I feel kind of bad that I left her there. She's with people she loves, but I don't know how she feels about being back there.

Only 13 more days until I get to see her again. :cry:
