The lesson on Craigslist as well as online is not to give information to strangers, even when they seem like nice people with a puppy for sale. In Oklahoma a mother and her 12-year-old daughter went on Craigslist trying to buy a puppy. The daughter thought she had found the one and called the number. Of course being a caring, responsible person he wanted to make sure his puppy wouldn’t be used in a puppy…

Thank you for all you do for this breed. I rescued a Boxer/pit 2 1/2 yr old female that was used for puppies. She will be spayed and just be the loving compainion she is. Such a sweet girl and I treat her like a Queen.

Back when it was just a foreign concept whose name was limited to public health journals and the occasional horror movie, my sister and I used to joke about Ebola. Every time we got the flu and felt like garbage we would text each other “Ugh, I have Ebola.” It was shorthand for “I feel very under the weather at the moment.”
But now that it’s finally happened, this snaking into the global population that public health experts have warned of for many years, we stopped joking about having Ebola because now we might ACTUALLY HAVE EBOLA.
I know the risks are low. They are, for now, still very low, and I am grateful for that. But it’s hard not to panic unless you turn off the TV, because all we see are bridal shops being bleached and entire school districts shutting down because someone rode on a plane with someone who might have at one point been symptomatic. My own school district just sent out an email assuring us that they have an Ebola plan in place, and we’re in San Diego, with not an exposed person to be found. Preparation is key, though, so I’m glad they are thinking of it.
I was at the doctor yesterday, for a routine sort of thing, and when they took my temperature the doctor noted it was 99.5.
“Are you feeling sick?” she asked.
“Well, I do have the tiniest bit of a sore throat, now that you mention it,” I said. “I’ve been travelling all week, and you know how that goes. I mean, I lysol that plane seat down and…” My voice trailed off as I noticed her giving me the side eye.
“Not to Dallas,” I said. “New York. No one I met had Ebola.”
“Oh, thank goodness for that,” she said. “How about West Africa?”
“No,” I said. “Do you get that a lot?”
“No,” she said.
“So you don’t think I have Ebola?” I asked, being serious.
“No,” she said.
So she gave me a flu shot instead. I had totally forgotten about the flu in the midst of this Ebolademic, to be honest. Fortunately for me, she hadn’t.
As I stood in line at the pharmacy behind an elderly emphysematics on oxygen, a guy picking up Lipitor and a diabetic purchasing insulin, I looked down at her discharge notes: take Vitamin D. Wash your hands. Get some sleep. But just to be safe, and because I want to protect my spin buddies, I decided on a self-imposed quarantine from the gym for the next 24 hours. Can’t be too careful.
October was quite the month; we were able to embrace the full spectrum of Autumn weather, started taking our jackets and scarves off of that hidden top shelf of the closet, and slowly entered the…

I’ve been curious about hunt tests for retrievers for a while. I’ve never actually seen one, yet know some people who do them. Liz and Andy put together a training day today and invited me along. I brought Coulee (and Lacey too so I wouldn’t need to make two trips) and we went for a short walk before everyone else got there. Then we got down to work.
We did two retrieves on land and two in water. Coulee rocked all of them. That’s my girl! Once I knew what it entailed, I wasn’t too surprised she did well – she’s basically be training for it her whole life. :)
All the other dogs did great too. There were a tonne of flatcoats, a lab and Coulee. These are a few of my favourite pictures from the day.
