Dog Day on Campus

File this under the Best.Day.Ever! Sully and I received an Evite to attend a doggie de-stress session for students during finals week at Wheaton College. I take classes there so Sully knows the campus. The college had set up a penned in area (like a dog park) where town residents and professors could bring their dogs so the students could take a break from studying to pat, cuddle and play with the dogs for a couple of hours. There are no dog parks in this town or any other town around that I…

Border Collies

Just a quick funny note. Since we live in a rural area we have all kinds of fowl, turkeys, geese, ducks, heron and such in the area.

By the way, there are still patches of snow out there but those little ass-hats are wide awake and ready to…

Foot Pad Pain

I know I already posted about the rock salt used on the walkways where I live but I am stumped again. We have 3+ feet of snow now and it is due to snow for the next four days so we are both limited to walking on the treated areas since the snow is over Sully's head and I have a physical disability that makes it hard to walk in deep snow. The combination of ice, extreme cold and rock salt on the plowed and shoveled areas burns the foot pads. Other dog owners here have resorted to carrying…
