I'm lucky enough to have mine as well--training horses, and exactly the kind of way I want. I've done it totally freelance with a lot of different clients, owned my own place, etc. and got burned out, but now I work at this lovely little breeding farm where I have just enough work to keep me busy, very nice horses ranging from 2 y/os to be started under saddle to seasoned show horses that I'm just fine-tuning (a life-long process LOL) and campaigning. We show at a national level but the owners are laid-back and don't freak out if something happens and the horses don't win (within reason, of course...I imagine if we never won I wouldn't still be working there, but I'm comparing them to clients who freak out if their 3 y/o spooks in one class and you place third ). I also just love the owners on a personal level, to the point that I spend holidays with them! My only complaint is that the otherwise perfect facility is up in the mountains and has no indoor arena, so every winter I wind up with 2-3 months of very little work.

Fortunately I'm also a pretty decent freelance writer, so I just step up that work and do just fine. If my current job ever goes away, I'll probably do that full time and would love it as I really enjoy writing as well. Actually, my dream would be to load up the dogs in my truck and travel around the US, blogging and writing online. I could actually do it, and if not for my job and my boyfriend I would do it in a heartbeat.

So all in all, I'm very fortunate when it comes to work. And when I start posting substantially less here in a month or so, you'll know why...back to the grind!

The rowdy dogs:
Hector-2 y/o GSD (mix?) rescue
Scooter-12 y/o ACD/Border Collie mix
Bandit-8 y/o ACD
Wooby-14 y/o ACD
Abutiu "Abi"-ACD puppy and hopeful future SAR dog!

My dream job would be to have enough money fall into my lap to
(1) work part time as a forensic chemist (I actually AM a chemist by training and education but could not afford to work as a bench chemist as the pay stinks)
(2) spend the rest of my time as a cadaver dog handler who actually had all the time I needed to train and money to travel

I would live to be a stay at home mom but first I would need a husband and kids. Outside of that I have two options for a dream job; study zoology and work in a zoo (undecided animal) or open a pet supply store that only sells products I approve of and do grooming. The zoology is a dream: I hate school and I don't see myself going back for it when I am in the middle of a complexly different area of study. I need money to open a store, so maybe one day.

Ditto GSD- 6 years old
Daisy Alaskan Husky- 4 years old
Weegee Toy Poodle- 2 years old

Always loved, missed, and remembered:

Been there done that 20+ years. I would love to be a teacher. Have two associates degrees but can't afford to go for the bachelors as it would require me to take student loans and we are far to close to retirement for that.

It took me a while to come up with this but I think my dream job would be in medical research. I would like to be a virologist working with diseases.
