notables

by | Wednesday, September 10, 2008 |

this video may not be the most entertaining but i find it notable for a number of reasons.  first, it's become clear to me that whenever there's something good happening and i appear with the video camera said good thing stops happening.  second, there is a rug between our living and dining rooms that the dogs have clearly designated the official ring where cans of whoopass can be opened - no ropes or any other demarcations needed.  third, this is one of the first times...

https://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=38003736470835173&hl=en&fs=true i know she's deaf but shouldn't one of her other senses kick in?  at the very least it seems she should sense a very large object looming behind her...or perhaps she just doesn't give a rat's ass.

i’m in awe of flanagan and all the progress he’s made in the 3 months we’ve had him. he’s overcome a lot and made enormous changes. speck has greatly helped (she’s got to earn her keep somehow) and my obsessive hug therapy (patent pending) seems to be cracking him. speck and he spend a good half hour every morning after breakfast chasing each other around the house like lunatics. that’s enormous progress and very dog-like. this morning i turned around and...
