My Life and Times (a tale of two dogs)

Ok, so I have been sadly absent from this forum lately, but as I've mentioned before I'm just incredibly busy. Often I log on to read messages and get pulled away and come back later to just get pulled away again. <darn kids> hehe

Anyway, just figured I'd post a quick update, and I've got some new pictures I'll put in the picture thread. Summer is quickly approaching. I only have 9 days of school left and I'm out for the summer. Which means I'll probably be here a lot more. We leave for the beach on June 10th for 7 days of bliss. I so cannot wait to dig my toes in the sand. I still have pictures I need to upload of our trip to Tennessee a while back, but they are still on hubby's computer.

The dogs are doing good. We started obedience class with Roscoe today. They cancelled the last couple of weeks. Anyway, he did wonderfully with the commands. He is possessive of me, however, and would growl whenever anyone approached me. But the trainer is AWESOME and she handled him like a pro and by the end he was doing great! And he learned his commands on the first or second try. So I have high hopes for my boy. We are going to enroll Mileva soon. She is spunky as ever, but as she gets older she gets more and more affectionate.

Otis is doing great too. We had a little crisis where the kids freaked out thinking he was a girl because his penis wasn't in the middle of his belly like Roscoe's. I had to explain that cats are different and no we aren't changing his name to Oda. I TRIED to explain the concept that he's REALLY gender neutral because he's fixed, but quickly gave that up. That was funny.

So, that's a little update from my corner of the world. I MISS EVERYBODY! I'll be back soon though!

Thanks guys! Yes, he is a protective boy, that's for sure. But the trainer said it was an easy thing to break him of mostly. I don't want him being TOO aggressive and bite someone, especially if it's someone I know. Anyway, I have high hopes.

Toes in the sand, eh? Does that mean you aren't having to wish you're someplace warm any more?

Oh man, I should change that, huh? Cuz it is sooooo hot here now! Too hot. It's the kind of hot where everything is hazy and you can't see the mountains.

Oh, and last time I logged on, my post count was at 600 and now I"m over 1000. What gives? Did somebody log on and post as me??

Nah, when they started the TJT subforum and switched the TJT over, all the posts suddenly counted (they've since been turned off)...

I went from 1500 to over 4000!!! man, that hazel is wordy!
