nighttime thoughts


Loretta and I took our first trip without the instructor's leash attached this afternoon. We got dive-bombed by one of those stupid birds I detest. She did really well and left the bird with just a voice command. There is a lot of emphasis on using voice commands only now, and that is a good new thing.



I want to write more but am extremely tired. I think that pain and things are catching up with me. I suspect that Loretta has a bladder infection, and I'm having to do a bit of advocacy to get her checked out by the vet. It is very common for dogs to have stress-related relief difficulties in training, and one of the instructors seems to think that she could be licking herself as a cleaning measure. It doesn't make much sense to me, especially when I see low drinking, excessive urination, and licking in combination. Stress can also aggravate any existing potential urinary tract irritants (mycoplasma). I learned with Dori that it is better to be safe and get things checked early and find out that I'm in the clear. It worked out with Meg. So I will make some waves tomorrow and get this nipped in the bud.



I've managed to snag quite a bit of Hebrew time, and I think I'm getting caught up on some things I had a poor understanding of initially. Somehow I need to move a bit faster... I guess that is what weekends are for...

I hope that you are able to get Loretta in to the vet so the problem can be taken care of. (HUGS)

I hope you can get that bladder infection nipped in the bud!
Out of curiosity, why are you learning Hebrew? Sounds really interesting!

Hebrew, etc.
I'm required to take at least one year of biblical language (Hebrew or Greek) for my M.Div. Depending on the doctoral program I choose, I may need facility in both; so I will end up doing both. I've discovered that I really enjoy Hebrew, and I ssupect that I will enjoy Greek equally. I'd like to do something about at least assisting with the development of accessible courses in biblical languages, although my primary interest is in practical theology.
