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?
I guess it is. Wow. After the seeming endlessness of the past year, this first month of 2021 has flown past. Or at least it seems so to me. I suppose, in some ways, that's a good thing. It might mean things are looking a bit more normal, right? Anyway, the weather has gotten cold … Continue reading Is It Really Nearly the End of January?
The BaldMan spent a good portion of Sunday installing the Sonos Connect and hooking up the Advent speakers in my office. Now I can listen to music (or whatever) without the constant hisssssss hisssss from the stupid speakers I had hooked up to the computer. Iz nice! It's October already? Geez, where did September go? … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Can Haz Good Sound!
Saturday was the 33rd annual Massachusetts State Cook Off. The BaldMan was Chief Judge, and I was Scorekeeper, as we have been for the past several years. It was a lousy day. So lousy that we decided not to bring Lambeau, even though this is one he could have gone to, and put him in … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Chili Again, and Doggie School
Lambeau had his first Beginner Attention class last Monday. He was- Lambeau. He whined and cried at all the other dogs, kept trying to get to them and every person that came by, and was just his usual PITA self when he's in a situation like that. I ended up working with him outside of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Lambeau and Beginner Attention Class
I think we blew through it a couple weeks ago, didn't we? Seems we have had very little sunny weather since that warm spell. I mean, I'm glad we are getting enough rain, but a little sunshine on my shoulders would be welcome! Oh, hey- we bought more plants! It seems we can't stop this … Continue reading Monday Musings: What Happened to Summer?
There is an Irish blessing that says: May your home always be too small to hold all your friends. At times, this past weekend sure felt like our house was too small to hold all the relatives that were there. At the same time, it was really good to have everyone around for a few … Continue reading Monday Musings: Weekend Fun
Today is Monday. And it feels like it. Like your stereotypical, no-fun-at-all, bleah Monday. I think I am still recovering from Saturday. We had the Massachusetts State Cook Off in Winchendon, MA then. As usual, the BaldMan was chief judge and I was scorekeeper. We knew it was going to be a long day- they … Continue reading Monday Musings: Better Late Than Never?
We took Lambeau to Arlington, VT on Saturday for the Vermont State Chili Cook Off. He loves cook offs. People fuss over him, and he gets lots of attention from the cooks. We were originally planning to stay overnight on Saturday since this is a late turn-in cook off, but there was some question as … Continue reading Monday Musings: He’s a Travelin’ Pup
Since I seem to be adding a few pictures from Lambeau and my walks every week, here are a couple I snapped recently. Lambeau found this guy and very nicely pointed him out to me. I think he was a little confused when he hopped away!: And this little fella sits in that … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Couple of Pictures, and What’s Been Going On
