When it rains…

Oreo in the rain

We went for our last casual walk for a while yesterday, got caught under a pavilion during a rain storm. No worries, I had plenty of coffee and did a bit of stretching and watching dance instruction on the DVIDA app (Dance Vision International Dancers Association). Today we started training for a marathon using our Couchto5k app. What did I ever do before smartphones? (Well, I got lost a lot…thank God for GPS.)

Hot summer, especially for a husky

Hard to believe over a year has gone by since I’ve posted, so sorry! Oreo’s doing fine. It’s pretty hot for her here in Tennessee so we haven’t been going out much. I had been working three job; editing books, teaching ballroom dance, and dog sitting through DogVacay. All three have slowed down tremendously, so I believe God is trying to redirect me to focus on just one or two (okay, just one, but I really don’t want to give up the dog sitting). 🙂

We’ve been working on Oreo’s separation anxiety all year, ever since I crated her to go to the post office and she lost a tooth trying to get out. I came back after 20 minutes and there was blood everywhere, I felt so awful! I broke my beautiful, perfect girl. 🙁 So now we’re up to about 1.5 hours of her alone in the house, but not the crate.

I’ve been thinking about learning to skateboard so she can pull me, she just loves to mush so much. Then I think about how old I am and wonder…should I wait a few more years so I can blame it on senility? 😉
