Casey is doing great, sleeping more soundly and one eye seems to be bluing, but he is still joyful and bounds about, climbing onto the bed etc
Faelan earned his JH, NJP, OJP, OAP and AXP titles. He has matured into a loving, gorgeous dog, first up to greet me in the morning, last one to snuggle good night. The only time he willingly leaves my side is for hiking with my brother and for field training.
Towhee had a wonderful litter of 4 boys & 4 girls. She loves working, playing and enjoying her life. She is very patient with son Brady and I do look forward to her having a full tail once again! While she earned no titles this past year, she is poised to start accumulating them – she loves retrieving now and even will swim. Snow is a perpetual delight.
Brady came into my life, has begun obedience, agility & field training. He is now tall enough to jump onto the bed and (knock on wood) very clear on his signals to go out. He is a snuggler and eager learner although nibbling on my earrings is a trait I could live without LOL He has already shown an affinity for Therapy work in the days following the Sandy Hook shootings - not in Newtown but more locally helping my state.
My family is healthy and I have learned to not let bad neighbors push me around.
I remain employed at a good job with wonderful co-workers.
I have incredible friends and very few enemies.
The Bad: honestly, not so much and nothing I care to dwell upon for the personal.
Super Storm Sandy
The seeminging spiraling violence and people becoming either desperate enough or unprincipaled enough to increase robberies, stand-offs, home invasions, etc
Thinks that make me go hmmm:
The Sandy Hook shooter's body has finally been claimed for burial, but by someone who wishes to remain annomynous - another news station reports it was claimed by his father. To not even have a father want to claim your body or have it public knowledge to me is .. well .. indescribable. He had to have loved his son at some point in time, wouldn't you think?
