so for those of you who do not know my daughter...jenn...here she is ( go ahead jenn, post a pic!)
so jenn is convinced (and quite right too) that the blog is much more interesting with pictures of who i am talking about. and she has been on my case to post the photo's of which there are many (she commandered her partners very expensive camera!) that match whatever story i am telling.
but posting pics is hard for me and takes a lot of time. jenn not to be stymied by her mother's technoignorance has taken matters into her own hands and is now apparently, adding pictures, with captions for me (see the post 2 below, bailey won't get a pic yet altho jenn tried tonight but he is quite camera shy.)
i am always on about our self actualizing animals...i learned this from raising self actualizing children..jenn is proof that i was pretty damn good at this!
love you babe, thx for the chuckle and yes the post looks better with the pictures you added!!
colleen's request for kodi's story today....
as i said before..i have been confining kodi in the big dog room for the past couple of days. the inhabitants of that room have not been happy. i did not know how irritated they were with kodi until today.
we took the dogs for a group field run after bailey had been introduced. it is a good and fun way to break the ice for everyone and for bailey to see how saints works. kodi of course was being kodi, flying around and herding everyone in sight like some kind of cattle dog madman. after the run was done, we started back for home. Al had had quite enough of kodi and his cattle dog nagging. The next thing we knew, was Al had knocked kodi to the ground and kodi started screaming and rolling and rolling and rolling and rolling down the hill.
But Mom, he deserved it!
it was funny....to us..kodi was beyond affronted. when he finally stopped rolling and hit flatter ground, he struggled to his feet, shot us all the most offended and dirtiest of looks and stalked off towards the house.
What cha look at?
al looked quite proud of himself, kodi stopped herding for all of 5 minutes before he was right back at it, full voice, full speed, full mouth of snarling teeth.
"Get up on the Bed, thee moving things ..."
"Good, and don't come down .... my JOB is done ..."
kodi is to herding what the rest of us are to breathing...absolutely necessary. i have no idea how that dog survived as an apartment dweller for 14 years..he must have been herding dust bunnies to keep himself sane.
