Tell Me Thursday 2012 #6

Another Thursday goes by and it's time for another Tell Me Thursday brought to you by Laura over at Crooks and Crazies. 

But first, here's a crazy cute picture of Starbuck in her flyball gear: 
Yes, those are LIGHTNING BOLTS on her boots! Why? Because she's awesome!! :) 

1. Robin wants to know what your ideal number of dogs is?
If I'm out walking the dogs by myself - I'd say the ideal number of dogs is probably 2. Would be more if my dogs hadn't been attacked by a boxer and now go crazy if a dog comes towards them :( We have 3 but I think I could probably go up to 4 or possibly 5 if we're just talking about dealing with them in the house by myself. But I think I'll be sticking with 3 for a while. Three seems to be a great number. 
Plus Nari isn't too fond of new dogs. Just look at how she was 
glaring at tiny baby Alpha when we got her! 

2. Lora wants to know if you find that your dogs are better or worse after time off from training?
My dogs are fine with time off from training. I'm the one with the problems! I'm clumsy and if I take a while off from training with them then I notice that it takes a little while for my timing to get better. One thing I've notice - their distance skills tend to not be as strong if we take a really long breaks (two months). 

3. What is your favorite power tool? What power tool do you wish you had?
Hmmm... power tool? I guess it would have to be one that I'm not afraid of... so a drill or dremel. 

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little I wanted to be a scientist and help people. Now I'm grown up and a scientist. I guess I wish that my younger self would have been warned that for some reason people think they know more about science than scientists and data and think we're just wasting their money so they cut our budgets... and somehow make it all political... Oh well, I guess people really don't need clean energy... Can you tell I'm in a bitter mood lately about budgets? :) 

Seriously, I do love what I do, I know I just need to not worry about what people are saying. Like Nari. She doesn't care that we totally make fun of her sleeping with her legs spread wide open. Nari does what she wants! 
Yep, that's Nari. Sleeping like a classy 'lady'. 

5. How many of your friends are not "dog people"? 
Most of my friends have dogs, but I wouldn't call them "dog people". They have dogs that they occasionally walk but that's about it. I guess I'm the only crazy one! But now that pretty much all of my friends just had a kid or are about to have a kid (and I don't have any) then maybe I'll find some dog friends...

Well... that's it for today! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! 


  1. Your dogs are so cute! We enjoy the photos.

  3. Love the pics of your dogs!! They have such personality!!! Sorry about the budget thing - I guess we all have to deal with "money" issues of some kind! Hope your job continues to go well.

  4. I hate the political crud that goes with work sometimes. I know it's hard, too, to not let what others say get to you, at least sometimes. Looks like Nari has it under control though!

  5. I love the picture of Nari staring at baby Alpha...its like she's saying, "Hey kid...don't sleep with your eyes closed"...LoL


I love comments - so please leave some :)
