As I recently told George I am getting a little discouraged. It seems like every time we make a little progress there is something else. I know Rose in only 8 months but it is either the weather, either the flu, either the heat, either the teenage bratty stage.

oh Claudia, I so know how you feel. We've canceled the past FOUR sessions at Dan's in a row, and haven't trained even once in the past month. But luckily for you Rose is very young, and you have tons of time on your side.
Tito will be 6 in March.

Faelan and Brady have the week off from field training. Perhaps a good thing in Brady's case since he is certainly missing it and may put aside the Don't wanna, don't hafta, 6 month old attitude

Rose got into that attitude. She picks up a stick and runs circles around me looking at me with the corner of her eye as if saying "I don't have to listen to you. So what are you going to do about it!" My daughter has been coughing all night for over a week now, went again to the doc yesterday morning and he said to give it more time and just stick with over the counter cough meds and then changes the conv to how many of my friends he knows. Obviously they do not work. Thinking of switching docs AGAIN. The last pediatric miss-diagnosed my kid 10 years ago with lymphoma for two months.
So while I am awake with her coughing, Rose cannot push herself more into me all night long. Her head is either on my nose, on my back or on my pillow. I feel like she knows I am exasperated.
Meanwhile, work has been busy as hell.
I went to Petco to get food for the queen acting outdoor cat and the trainer there asked me about Rose. i told him how she is acting and he replied that I have spoiled her too much and not trained her enough. Needless to say that I did not take it very well.

How old is this dog?

Rose is 8 months. She is in my novice opinion in pre-heat as we speak.

And everytime I badmouth her she has to prove something. Earlier today we were outside playing with the frizbee. All of a sudden the crazy guy walks his dogs and the greek guy is walking his dog. They meet up right in front of our yard, barking and running at eachother. Rose is on the 50' rope but I wasn't holding it. She starts barking and charging towards them. I find myself yeling Rose Whoa. She looks at me mumbling something. Rose SIT and she plops her but* down and still mumbles. I went and sat with her until all the neighborhood dogs got quiet.

Winter did a nice job on a small water triple today that had a tough bird placement for the 1st mark.
Today is her 4th birthday, my how time flies.

I have not really done any training with BaWaaJige for about 3weeks. We had a cold snap here with it hovering around -40 for 4-5days then we have gotten alot of snow last week it was 10-11" and then on monday we got over a foot I have no fields that I can get into at the moment. Then the weather forecast is saying we are suppose to get another 6-8". All I can do it stand on the road and through his bumpers into a field but I really cant ask my son to try and walk out there 100yrds so we can work on things the right way. So I guess we are taking a break for awhile.
