Becca tested positive for Lyme disease today. She also had it in 2013. Then she wasn't showing symptoms and it was during a screening. This time she is feeling it. Two weeks ago while we were on…Continue

Cat grass

I've been keeping a pot of cat grass going for Mokey so she will leave my plants alone. Becca now thinks a few sprigs of grass is a great treat. I've been giving her a few pieces whenever I'm in that…Continue

"Do you live in an area where tick borne diseases are an issue? Lyme can present with general lethargy and motivation to exercise. Several dogs, including Becca, in my neighborhood have tested positive this year."

Altoid first aid kit pet/people version

Posted on July 27, 2015 at 6:01pm 13 Comments

I have been toying with the idea of making an altoid first aid kit for outings with Becca. I've checked online for suggestions and have some basic ideas for what to include. I'd like to merge them into a kit for people and dogs. It will be used for everything from the beach to hikes.

My list so far:



gauze pads

alcohol pads


duct tape wrapped around a mini sharpie

tweezers or small knife including…


Mayflower Corgi Trial

Posted on June 6, 2015 at 8:03pm 10 Comments

We are off to the Mayflower Corgi Trial tomorrow. Monday is open to all breeds and Tuesday is Corgi only. I'm looking forward to Tuesday. It will be fun to see all those fast little dogs. I wish I could attend the rest of the Mayflower events especially herding. I saved my two personal days all school year for the agility days. It's so difficult to make mid week events.

Wish us luck. Becca could get her AKC novice title to go with her CPE level one. I'm a little worried about the…


Happy first day of spring

Posted on March 20, 2014 at 10:35am 18 Comments

As we are digging out from 6-8 inches of snow this morning, Becca and I would like to wish everyone a happy first day of spring. I was shocked to get a snow day off from school today, it was supposed to rain. Becca has enjoyed my day off by playing in the snow, walking with some doggie friends and now having a snooze.

My ipad won't let me put an image on the blog, so I'll add it to photos.

Herding lesson/instinct test

Posted on August 14, 2013 at 7:02pm 1 Comment

Becca had her herding instinct test and first lesson today. We went to Little Dove Farm in Appleton, Maine. A friend from agility class went with her aussie as well. It was very comprehensive. Suzanne began with a lesson with us (handlers) using one of her dogs for example. She cut three dog trained sheep out of the flock. Explaining what she was doing and what should be expected of the dog.

Then she worked with each of our dogs in a 30x30 pen. The dogs were on a long leash giving her…

Thank you, Marcie! Sometimes when I feel passionately about something, I fear I may come off a little bit strong but I do always try to remember that there are real people with feelings sitting on the other side of the screen!

Hey Marcie! Just wanted to stop by and tell you that I just love Becca. Her markings and just her overall looks, are just gorgeous. She looks like such a sweetie with a little bit of rambunctious side lol I hope all is well for you guys. Glad to hear Mokey and Becca are getting a long a little better. :)
