This and That

Lync, Ash and Kort yesterday during our walk

Not much has been happening since my last post.  I signed Lync up for some obedience classes focusing on heeling.  We are getting there slowly, there is a lot of room for improvement however especially when cutting back on the treats. Lync works much harder when the treats are involved .
Work is going really well, I am actually surprised I am enjoying grooming again. I am still working part time, 30 hours a week, but that suits me just fine.

The dogs are doing well, the horrible cold snap we had has finally passed.  We had days of -40-45 C on a few days and I couldn't get the dogs out even to exercise them.  With the warmer weather now we have been getting out for some fun runs 4 times a week.

Tomorrow I am taking Kort to work to bath and groom him, I had Ash done last week.  I love this perk of working at a grooming shop, sure saves on the mess in the house.

That's about all for now!

January 1 2017

Welcome 2017!

Today we are having a blizzard, it is the perfect day to stay inside, take down Christmas and just chill with the dogs.  Brad is working nights so he is fast asleep.

I am glad to see 2016 go, it had a lot of downs, the worst being my sweet sister passing away in April, my heart still hurts so bad, but it did have some ups as well.  I finally found a job, one I have now been at for 6 months, grooming, I never thought I would do it again but here I am.  I guess if you are good at something you shouldn't fight it, grooming is my calling I suppose.  I am not sure how long I will be able to continue, it' not an easy job, but I will continue as long as I can, at least until Brad and I are more financially secure.

I have some goals for this year, one being trying for Lync's CD title.  I need to get back into classes, I'm putting those off until Spring, I just don't like going out in the winter, especially at night. I will also get back into tracking with Ash in the Spring hopefully, maybe even take Kort out as well.

I hope this year brings nothing but happiness to you and yours, Happy New Year!

Christmas 2016

Out tiny tree this year
Christmas is over for another year.  I had a lovely day with Brad, this year he didn't have to work which was so awesome!  We had our chicken and stuffing on Christmas Eve then had yummy sandwiches on Christmas Day while we spent our time watching movies together.  It was so cold we didn't go out anywhere so the dogs are going a bit crazy.  I could take them but their feet freeze up so fast.  Today is Boxing Day and it's supposed to warm up later at which time I will go out with the dogs.  They will enjoy that . 
I am off now until Dec 29 & 30th, then off again until January 3, 2017 is fast approaching! Brad has to work on New Years Eve, the price of having Christmas off.  That's ok, I will ring in the New Year with the dogs for company.
Hope all of your holidays have been Merry and Bright so far :)

Keep on Smiling

Those first smiles are the best, especially coming from such a precious little boy :)

Christmas Craft Day 2016

Craft Day is over for another year.  This time we made wooden tea light holders.  I am not at all a crafty person so I am very excited how nice these turned out! good for me!

Liz made her famous peppermint mochas as well as a spinach and ricotta quiche.  It was snowing outside and we had the fire place going as well as Christmas music playing in the background.
A perfect day ....
