No, I wouldn't like it either, but on someone else it's funny - ya know!!!!!

Gee, i wonder what words you use LMAO ... probably the same ones we all use when going through the landshark phase!

Wonder what he'd do if he actually saw the llama and not just smelled it!

Frag has gotten weird on one occasion based on body language; I was standing in my office with our nosework trainer & frag, and a lady walked up to the doors to come inside. Frag walked to the door and stopped about 10 feet short like usual, well the lady hesitated thinking he was aggressive (why would we have dogs that are going to eat you in the office of a business, as members of a dog park!?) and only opened the door about halfway then closed it quick and started backing up and mumbling while looking at him. Then he sank down a little bit almost in a stalk and started growling, as he couldn't figure out why she was retreating; no one ever just stops between the doors or starts to come in and leaves! I was worried about the behavior for a second and my trainer reassured me that it was totally called for that Frag was growling at someone being very weird and out of the norm. I put him on his bed in the corner and told her to come in and explained what a weird behavior that was.

So, some dogs probably do pick up on smell and medicines, etc. and some definitely pick up on body language; too much eye contact, shift behaviors, retreating, etc. like Frag did.

Saw a counselor today about my depression. She posed her face with a look of understanding, a small smile and her eyebrows shaped in the form of a sympathetic look. She was also leaning slightly forward to appear interested in the conversation, and her hands were folded over her lap so she looked relaxed and non-threatening.

I wanted to punch her in the face. Don't look at me like that, that face you stole out of a darn psychology textbook. Don't pretend you care or that this is interesting, because this isn't interesting at all. It's boring depression.

I spent most of the time avoiding eye contact with her. I just couldn't look at her doing that. It just felt manipulative instead of comforting.

What is wrong with people?

A lady just walked into my work (a private dog park with large office) to get some information about bathing her Irish Wolfhound. As she's walking in, my two are greeting her, and she's mumbling something about "Good thing I'm good with canines!".. over and over. She seems a little off.

We talk, yada yada, and she starts playing with the dogs. Ok... until she grabs Frag by the face with both hands and shoves her face into his giving him kisses, as he's squinting and backing away. I said something along the lines of Ma'am please don't grab him like that, he doesn't know you and you should never stick your face in a strange dog's face, it's really unsafe. My bosses husband was here watching, horrified by her actions and backed me up (usually I don't have to be rude to people) and she said Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't think I was a stranger to him anymore. I said, you've been in here for less than 5 minutes and you think you're best friends with my dog? My boss's husband laughed and she said "I guess not..." and finished up her visit and left.

REALLY?

The other day we had a visitor who grabbed another dog the same way and shoved her face all over the dog, only to come up and say, "You know, I really shouldn't have done that, but he was so cute!"

What is it with "dog" people!?

Those aren't real dog people. Those are people who have dogs.


Ok so how weird is this. My throat thing has been going on since Tuesday. No other symptoms other than the throat. Today I cough, hard and out comes a piece of cashew. My throat is raw but now fine. I have my voice back. How on earth does a piece of cashew get lodged to where it's not choking me but causing issues for 4 days??? Oh and a ping pong table fell on my head this morning. You can't make this up.

What was I thinking?

There are four girls in my family. We are all one year (or less - my parents were very busy) apart. I thought it would be nice to plan a vacation with just us four girls for a week. We'll meet in a specific state in the middle (two live up north, two live down south.) Each girl pick one 'bucket list' activity to do while we are gone. We all have to do it. I thought that would be the hard part.

Nope. We can't even decide where to stay.

This is going to be a long year.

LOL. I'm anxious to hear how this pans out.

In other news, my favorite member of the park got diagnosed with lymphoma monday and started chemo right away. I cried with her owner for over 10 minutes in the park today... can't wait to get my oven in the house and bake her some darn dog fudge.

They actually do this in Scandinavian countries.
There are parks where mothers leave their infants in the stroller to sleep while they go shopping. Would never fly here.

Ah, but they are not dog people. They like dogs, but know zero about them.
