I finally broke the 200 barrier. Been teasing at it for a couple of months - 205, 204, 204, 203.5, etc. The first 30 came off easier, then, the dreaded plateau. But, I didn't... Read more
Doggy Graduation Day
Sunday, July 12, 2009      3 comments

Ya! The pups graduated from advanced class today. They managed to sit/say, down/stay, and stand/stay (as well as sit, down and stand waits - yes, there's a difference) long enough despite distractions to pass graduation. The trainer said "they ... Read more

OK - so yesterday I was doing The Challenge workout. As I was doing the wall pushups, I was admiring my arms. I'm actually getting muscle definition! Haven't had that since basic training for the Army, a lifetime ago. ... Read more

I walked the pups another new way today - ended up being 3.6 miles. Shalako is getting better at trudging along, but I still carried her twice for 5 minutes each, and watered the dogs twice in the walk . Started at about 0800 and finished at 09... Read more
Vacation Continues

Walked the pups a slghtly different way thru the neighborhood today - 90 minutes, so quicker than yesterday and a little bit longer. Carried Shalako 6 minutes, but I've started carrying a water bottle and empty cat food can (hey, it's light, lit... Read more

Wednesday, July 08, 2009      2 comments

Now this was more like vacation. I walked the pups 3.7 miles today - long, leisurely walk. Got home, and I'd planned to go to the Long Leash on Life pet food store and get the Primal food for the pups. Managed to waste the entire day instead. Go... Read more

Got up at 0200 to get things ready for work tonight. I realized I was out of dry cat food, and they were not happy. I decided to combine taking the pups on a walk with going to Petsmart and getting some cat food. Had to wait until it opened at 0... Read more
Lunch at the Olive Garden
Tuesday, June 30, 2009      5 comments

I walked the pups through the neighborhood I got us lost in last week. This time, I knew it was a closed in area, so I didn't get us lost - of course, it dropped the length from 4.5 to 3.6 miles, but Shalako didn't complain. As it was, I carried... Read more
