I have now had to miss flyball practice for work two weeks in a row. I miss it. Its driving me nuts. I'm sure the dogs aren't too pleased by the lack of flyball either. Its making my mind go into researching mode. I've been researching flyball boxes, including: different styles, materials, ball hole placement, flexibility, launchers. I've been watching training videos. I've been doing touch stick practice with my dogs, but don't have enough room to do any wall practice still.
Basically, I just need to get back to flyball practice before my head explodes.
I've even gone from researching flyball to just researching in general. Books on urban homesteading, gardening, raising chickens, rabbits, goats, and other animals are all appearing in my house unbidden. I mean, I like gardening and all, and I love getting fresh produce from my garden over the summer, but seriously? These books are pretty depressing sometimes.
One of them shared the golden gem that if we stopped using lawn mowers in the United States for one year, it do as much for reducing carbon emissions as removing one in every five cars from the roads. Thats just sickening. We spend that much waste of gas and time and resources on something so pointless as a lawn?
Or how about the wonderful little fact that 40% of the food produced in this country ends up in landfills, uneaten, much of it even before the expiration dates? Talk about a depressing book to read.
But on to happier things.
I managed to finally get a good picture of Koira barking (yelling) at me to THROW THE BALL!
And a good picture of both my dogs together, which seems rather rare actually
One of Pallo trying his hardest to look just like a real Vallhund instead of the funny looking corgi something mix he more likely is
Koira leaping for joy (or a ball, you know, same thing)
And a picture to add to the Funny Expressions album of my dogs, with the title:
Followed by the question for readers: Do my dogs look too skinny?
And, lets not forget the Blog Hop
