Tell Me Thursday 2012 #9

And it's time for Tell Me Thursday brought to you by Laura over at Crooks and Crazies! 

From Laura:
"For a slight change of pace, this Thursday is a "Tell Me Thursday - Random Edition" sort of post. This is your permission to break out whatever random stuff you want to tell this week.

Also known as... I've been so crazy busy this week I almost forgot again. 

So rather than Q&A this week I'd like to know whatever random tidbits you might have on your mind today." 

So, here I go: 

- I'm a total chicken. I'm afraid to teach my dogs new things because I'm afraid that I'm a crappy teacher and that I will demotivate them. I'm afraid of making mistakes. That has affected their performance in agility. 
- I probably drive my trainer crazy because of this. He is very nice and always patient with me, I have no idea how he does it. But we had a breakthrough yesterday so things will be better now! 
- I started doing free-shaping trick work because of the above. Keep the dogs happy, teaching them how to learn and to fail and think through things. They are loving the challenges. 
- I finally decided it was time to focus more on getting the dogs more toy motivated (and stop avoiding it like I had been). They all do tug and play with toys, but when food comes out they are all about the food and completely ignore the toys. So I've started free-shaping that and making my own tugs with food in it, so far it's going pretty well.
- Silver skulls candles that 'bleed' are quite amazing. 

A Christmas present from a friend, pretty much the most amazing candle ever.
Bleeding out of the eye sockets!!

- I really want turtle brownies right now. 
- Have you ever had tried those Ghiradelli turtle brownie mixes? They are AMAZING and I want one right now. 
- Starbuck has this amazing ability to pick up contractors at Lowe's. Now that she has some experience  picking up contractors that build retaining walls... I wonder where I can take her to pick up a guy who wants to pay for the retaining wall that is needed to level my yard? 

Seriously - this girl has made skills at picking up anyone. Heck, some woman
 even let Starbuck lick her cleavage in public once! 

- Don't google 'cleavage' at work to see if you spelled it correctly. 
- Whoever came up with purple zebra striped tights is amazing. 

Well, that's all I can think of right now - hope all y'all have a great weekend! 


  1. Steffi, you make me smile!! And Starbuck is sucha cutie!!!!

    Have confidence girl - you can do it!!! You can teach your dogs any thing!!!

    Thanks for heads up on cleavage!

      - Steffi

  2. P.S. Not to offend, but not my favorite candle! LOL

    1. Yeah, I'm not sure that many people could appreciate that candle as much as me and my friend who gave it to me :)

      - Steffi

  3. I'd probably let Starbuck lick my cleavage too. Okay, maybe not, but it sounded all cool and stuff. So much fun!

    1. Starbuck does get away with pretty much everything! If only I was a cute little dog - I could get away with so much!
