You'll notice I've overhauled the blog. I like it, I have to admit. This is what happens when you are procrastinating from writing semester end papers. And, are home, struggling with the flu not able to attend things like agility classes or even work. I don't like to share my germs so I have elected to stay at home and get better.
Sophie thinks she's died and gone to doggy heaven... she's been getting daily off leash runs and LOVES it! I
Spike on the other hand has been pouting. He doesn't like that Sophie cuts into his valuable training time. Poor boy isn't all that thrilled that we are taking an extended break from Flyball as well; in the midst of Spike's injury and recovery, I realized I just don't have the time to commit to practices. So, I cut back on my dog sport involvement and am just focusing on agility at the moment. Murphy is just grateful I've had the flu the last days and have stayed home, hanging out on the couch with her. She'd rather I stayed home all the time to be at her beck and call, to be honest. I might like that too, as she sleeps much better when she hasn't been crated all day.
In other news, many of you know that I am involved with dog rescue. I coordinate the intakes for New Hope Dog Rescue in Saskatoon and I also occasionally foster. It's been a tough winter thus far; we've had far more than our fair share of puppies come through our doors and I just thought I would share a few of their little faces. Seriously, someone needs to take these little cuties home or I may end up with a puppy or two extra here. They have to go SOMEWHERE as we have a Mama and her 9 pups coming in today. Mama was tied to a dog house and the pups are about a week old. It's cold out there folks, far too cold for week old puppies to be living in a dog house. I actually think my buddy Rebecca will be taking them in, but I may help her out and bring home one of them myself. We'll see...
Anyway, here's Bella. Ain't she a little doll of a husky mix? You seriously should consider adopting her!
Or, Aeron perhaps. He's a handsome little guy!
Or little Morrigan, the one I want to foster. I can't resist those little eyes.
Stay tuned to see if they all find their way to Rebecca's or whether I take one. SO cute! And, just think, we managed to save 10 more dogs with a little shuffling around. All's good as long as we have foster homes!!
Anyway, here's hoping I make it back to work tomorrow. And, get my semester end papers completed. And, begin to feel human again- after all, Christmas holidays are just around the corner; I must feel better for my holidays!!
