Another Week Gone By

So well then.

Last weekend was more agility. Goodness I’m so addicted! I love agility. 🙂 Levi did really well, except he had a couple bad things that kept him from Qualifying. He got 1 Q out of 3.. he got his first JWW Open Q, so that was good. He almost got his standard both runs, but one he missed the weaves 2ce (for two refusals) and the other he knocked a darn bar. Triple spread jump. I hate that jump. My classmate brought her triple spread to class so we can practice it for a while, as Nick also dropped a bar or two.

Otherwise it was great fun. What a wonderful way to spend the weekend. I brought Lucy, too, and ran her in novice standard. She did really well! Walked across that darn broad jump, though. But that’s okay, I’m going to practice the broad jump at home, see if we can fix that and get her standard novice preferred title. Then she’ll be done with agility.

Chase is the smartest boy ever. He is learning his wait really well! I’m impressed with the boy. (Dont tell the collies, but I think he’s smarter lol.) But then, I’m working with him when he is young, and I know oh so much more than when the collies were young. 🙂 And I love the positive training.

Anyway… the server is coming back online. Most is up. I need to work on the utahdogs.com site, it’s boring now, needs some spice. 🙂

Going Along

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving. Hrmph. Too weird, it comes way too fast anymore. Tomorrow is the big day. Should be fun. We are doing the typical feasting at my Mom and Dad’s house. I do love the holidays.

I got my web server mostly going again. Photo galleries are up. Main web page is up. Web cam is going. UtahDogs.com is up again on a new board, restored from the old. I don’t think the permissions are set quite right, though, because I’m not able to change the templates remotely. I’ll need to check on that. I need to get it going again. It was a nice site, now it’s just the board, rather boring. And I don’t think any of the pictures came across, so I need to get that set up, too.

But, agility this weekend, and I think it’s only 1 ring, so Sat and Sun will both be all dayers.

I think I’m going to take Lucy, too. I took her to the vet last night and she seems okay. She could have arthritis, but the vet moved here here and there, this way and that, and said she doesn’t have a very good range of motion, especially in her left elbow, but she doesn’t seem unhealthy in any way. We got some anti-inflammatories to see if they might help. So perhaps Lucy just doesn’t like to jump. I just don’t want her to be in any pain.

She is just not a motivated pup. She likes eating, and laying around, and going on slow walks. But going fast is not her style. Silly girl. She is hard for me to train and motivate. Levi is easier, and Chase will probably be easier too. Levi is a pleaser boy and I think Chase is mostly too.

I haven’t worked with Chase much yet… been concentrating on Lucy and Levi. Mostly Lucy with that last UKC trial. She did pretty good, and would have Q’d had she gone over the jumps instead of around them. Silly goof. 🙂

Fish

You know what is getting rather fun for me, is my aquarium. 44 gallons, corner pent tank. I am working on the lighting. I do realize that most major anal retentive plant tank geeks think that the spiral compact fluorescents are not good for tanks, but I am going to try it anyway. Got an 85 watt SCF on order that should be here in a few days.

Maybe then my plants won’t suck so bad. LOL. The fish that I have no are doing pretty well. I didn’t see my Oto yesterday, I hope he lives okay, and I would like to get a couple more to keep him company. But Otos can be hard to keep sometimes. They are so damn sensitive.

The red raspberry tetras are so cute! And the angels just look so healthy. I hope this light makes the tank bright and chipper and cheery looking. Now it looks dull and dreary. And I hate dull and dreary, it just sucks! 😀

Ugha

Hormones suck. Mainly PMS sucks. Parental fights suck. Rotten tones of voice suck. Life, in general, just can suck.

UKC Obedience with Lucy Friday night and Saturday. I hope we don’t suck. LOL

We will work on it some tonight.. no sucking, that is.

Sleeping definitely does not suck, and I wish I could do some now.
