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...
