Minor Updates

I have just a few minutes to spare right now, so I thought I’d muse a little bit.

Dali’s still here with us. The person who was going to come visit her found her charming, but hadn’t filled out an adoption application yet, so we couldn’t start any official paperwork. They still haven’t filled out the [...]

Another quick update

Lessee…

Barbara checked into the hospital at about 1:30PM on Monday of this week for her shoulder replacement surgery. She walked out of the hospital at about 10:00AM on Wednesday to come home. She’s irrepressible–I keep catching her carrying bags of dog food, poop-scooping in the back yard, so many things she shouldn’t really be doing. [...]

The Sailor Home From the Sea

I’m glad that MandaBear posted the other day, ’cause it would otherwise be about a month since the previous post. Can you tell that we’ve been overwhelmingly busy?

A brief update (very brief, ’cause my day job is screaming my name):

I was in Clearwater Beach, Florida for 28 days, working on our sailboat. Barbara joined me [...]

Stranger In A Strange Land

I’m back from Korea. Got in mid-afternoon on Saturday after a long, but uneventful trip involving a taxi, three planes, and a train. Don’t ask… Barbara picked me up at the airport with Abby and Star in the car, which was really, really nice. The girls (all three of them ) were happy [...]

In Other News…

After all of the doom-and-gloom over the past month, punctuated by the occasional travelogue, I thought I’d give a brief update on everybody else.

Star and Abby (whom we adopted ourselves) are doing great. Star continues to be a bit anxious about life in general, but especially about getting enough attention, while Abby is thrilled to [...]

Home Again

Well, we got home rather late last night (after 10:30, I think). Amanda, bless her heart, was still here waiting for us. She’d gone to Cottonwood to bring Chewy home before we got here, which was wonderful. Of course, we were exhausted, but it was great — GREAT! — to see all the kids (and, [...]

Tommy’s Getting a Job!

Ok, this is officially a teaser. Tommy’s getting a job pretty soon, but I am not ready to tell anybody what it is or when it’s going to happen. All I can tell you right now is that it’s not a traditional Sheltie job and that the woman in California who helped us rescue Tommy [...]

Agility’s Fun!

On Friday of last week, Abby and I went to agility class again. I had managed to work one-on-one with Abby two or three times last week, and she really seemed to enjoy doing it. (Whether that’s due to her fondness for work, her pleasure at spending more time with me, or her love of [...]

Abby Starts Training

More accurately, Jim has started training Abby. Sort of. Trying, at least.

Some of you know that I had the first Obedience Trial Champion (Merlin, a/k/a Astolat’s Myrddin Emrys) in the Rocky Mountain area of the USA. I am also an AKC obedience judge (emeritus…meaning "effectively retired"). So you’d think that I might know a tad [...]
