How is your Wednesday going?
Mine has involved lots of homework and no yard work. I am also trying to resist the urge to make this cake. You will note that the frosting alone involves a pound of powdered sugar. I bet I would be super productive after eating that.
Nim is pooped. On Saturday May 25th will be our first ever Rally-Free trial. Because I am still traumatized after being excused from the ring on my last Rally-Obedience trial before we even made it to the first sign, I chickened out and registered for the pre-novice runs as opposed to actual novice runs.
Basically pre-novice doesn't count towards titling. I am hoping that taking the titling pressure off will get me back into the "ring" saddle.
So we have been training and training with Emile as our new shadow because he now thinks the clicker is all about him.
By the way, I LOVE this blog about Honey the Great Dane. I have to put myself on restriction from watching all her freestyle videos and reading all her training posts. Darn homework!
The Snoqualmie Valley area had a really ugly break-in involving an assault and a subsequent stabbing of the intruder by one of the home owners. We get some really bizarre violent crime out here and definitely break-ins but this one really bothered me. I ended up lining up my noisy boots by the only door into the house last night so I would sleep. You would think my doberman would make me relax, but I have to defend him you know! :)
