Today we learned tunnels! And you know what? Ginger doesn’t naturally want to go into a tunnel, well at least at first she didn’t want to. It took A LOT of coaching and bribing to get her to finally go in and come to me on the other side. But, once she got through the first time, the rest were excellent. We’re also beginning to … Continue reading Agility #3
We had our second agility class on Saturday and boy did we work the dogs’ brains! We practiced the A-frame about 8-10 times in a row to really re-enforce the technique. We also started incorporating stopping at the end of the ramp instead of just running off of it. Ginger was a pro (of course) and by the last few times, I didn’t even really … Continue reading Agility Class #2
Yeah, I’ve totally been a slacker on this thing! This is why I will never blog full-time…..I forget to blog! But, I’m still here, doing my thing, living life.

Prepare to go through the ringer before you … Continue reading Fed up

Of course, I have to work to provide for myself, but as long as I could have a job that I liked with a salary to give me the kind of life I wanted, then that was good enough for me. And right now, I truly have that. My job is … Continue reading Finding Passion
Man, there is so much to post, I don’t know how I will ever find the time to catch up. First, my world has been forever changed by working with SGA. Finding homes for these dogs who have been put in such horrible places has both brought me joy and pain. I love every aspect of working in this area. I love the interaction with … Continue reading An Emotional Day
When I decided I wanted to be involved in dog rescue, I knew it would be a very hard thing for me because I have a very soft heart when it comes to animals, especially dogs. I always have. They look at me and I just melt into their puppy-dog-brown eyes. If I had enough space (like a 40 acre ranch), I would own 15 … Continue reading Stanley
