My weekly blog update
Finding time to blog has been a bit of a challenge these days, but really I don't have much dog news. Ash will be 9 months old tomarrow and he is weighing in at 30 lbs now. I'm finally a believer that he will meet the cardigan standard for average weight in males. We also went to our first basic obedience class on Monday and I learned that he has figured out how to tune me out. All he wanted to do was play with every single dog there rather than pay attention to his momma. I think it's time to turn things up a few notches and crack the whip. Tomarrow we have ring practice, so it will be interesting to see if he cooperates- especially since our last ring practice was about a month ago. So how long does the male teenage period last for all you male cardi owners? He really is a good, sweet boy but he has developed a mind of his own lately and I'm hoping it's just a phase.
As far as school for me I have my first clinical this week. I begin my rotation at our local psychiatric hospital... deep breath. Should be a learning experience. I miss the summer and it feels like fall already around here. Check out our apple thief in the backyard!
