Just An Update

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. But a lot has been happening and it's been a very busy time.

First off, Doug's nephew ( Pictured in the last blog post) is done with his "boot leave" and is off to Jacksonville NC for training.

Secondly I am now gainfully employed! The company I have been temping for offered me a job last week and I happily accepted.

Let's see what else?

Oh, Reilly and I have signed up for Intermediate Ob. We really need it, I think and it will be fun. I had to buy him a special bed for it though, so he can learn the "place" command. This is the bed:And of course, since he is spoiled, then I had to get the sheepskin cover to go over it. But I am sure it will all be worth it ;).

Friday night I went to the Opera and saw Madama Butterfly. It was interesting, but the director did some visual things that detracted from the overall look of the opera.

Halloween is approaching - our FAVORITE time of year. We got a HUGE pumpkin yesterday courtesy of our neighbors who went to N Ga to the pumpkin patches. So that's on our "to do " list for this week.

That's it for now, I'll keep you posted on the Obediance classes ( ahem)... we'll see how that goes.


  1. Wait. They made you buy a bed? You can teach "go to place" with a rug or a towel or anything...

    Oh, wait! YOU just needed to buy him the bed? I get it. ;)

    Spoiled boy, that Reilly. Lucky. But spoiled.

  2. Reilly is so not spoiled.

    And if you believe that one, I have this Bridge to Nowhere to sell you...

  3. Congrats on the employment development! And I can't wait to hear an update on the ob training. Glad things are well!

    We took the fam to the N.Ga pumpkin patches yesterday and had a ball. I couldn't believe the sizes of some of those pumpkins!

  4. Ok well they asked us to buy a bed for the place command, although Susie( the trainer) has told me you can teach it with a towel or anything else. I bought the bed bc I figured it will come in handy at shows and things like that. I probably won't use it in the house since he already has several beds for his own use :)

    And yes, he is very spoiled.

  5. Well shucks ya'll. Why have a dog if you aren't going to spoil it? *beams*
