My rating: 4 of 5 stars Rally Obedience, or Rally-o as it is often called, is a dog sport that combines elements of obedience with a bit of agility, is something I have been interested in for Lambeau for a while. Not that I want to compete, but he is still pretty energetic and needs … Continue reading Friday Review: The Ultimate Guide to Rally-O by Deb Eldredge DVM
A Little Road Trip, A Little Gardening, A Little Weekend Stuff
It was a busy, but productive weekend here in southern NY. The weather was mostly good. A bit humid at times, but it is summer, so that's just part of the package. On Friday, I drove to PA for my uncle's funeral. He was my mother's brother and was everyone's favorite, I think. Aunt Dorothy … Continue reading A Little Road Trip, A Little Gardening, A Little Weekend Stuff
You Talkin’ To Me?
A few posts back I mentioned that I bought talking buttons for Lambeau. We've been working with them for a bit now. We started with just one, and with a good motivator for him- food. I recorded "Food" as the cue and used just one section of the mats that came with the buttons. I … Continue reading You Talkin’ To Me?
Describes my computer over the weekend. I was installing some updates like you do, and suddenly, the screen turns that dreaded shade of blue and I see in big letters: RECOVERY. Your PC needs to be repaired. No one wants to see that. I let the IT department (aka The BaldMan) know and he came … Continue reading Kinda Blue
Playing ‘Possum- For Realz
Last night, I let the dog out for his last-of-the-night potty breaks. It was raining a bit, so I waited on the porch. He ran out into the yard and made a beeline for the fence at the top of the driveway. He was sniffing away at something and it was his "Ooh-I-found-something" and not … Continue reading Playing ‘Possum- For Realz
A collection of things that have been going on around here of late: We lost my Mom in early May. She was 93, and had a stroke last August which she recovered from relatively well. She had some weakness, although she was walking a little. Her speech was slurred at times and she had trouble … Continue reading Miscellanea
Much Ado About Nothing
A mélange, if you will, of tidbits on a variety of topics. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we got one of those DNA test kits for Lambeau. We have always suspected that he has some bully in him, but the actual results surprised me. He is 100% American pit bull terrier. Surprising because … Continue reading Much Ado About Nothing
Who Are You?
Well, I did it. I got a DNA test for Lambeau. We know he's a mixed breed, and were told he has "American pit bull" in him, but I have always been curious about what else might be mixed in there. He was from a rescue litter, so it could be anything. I got the … Continue reading Who Are You?
And Just Like That, It’s November!
A few unrelated jumbles of thought for the beginning of a new month: Saturday was Halloween. Our town decided not to cancel trick-or-treating this year, but encouraged masks for everyone and the usual social distancing practices. We did have candy to hand out. Yes, I wore a mask- a proper one. Didn't get many kids … Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s November!
Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime
In the good old summertime, I am sitting inside in the nice air conditioned rooms. The air temp (Sunday) is 95. Heat index is 102. I am not going outside unless I have to. I watered all the flowers and veggies earlier, swept the deck, and took the dog out this morning. He'll need to … Continue reading Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime
