Don't get me wrong, it's all good info, but it's not something I'll use in my daily work. I already know my job, and know Windows 10. This is all a hare-brained idea our director had to make all of us get this additional certification so he can tell all the other Network Enterprise Center directors around the US that his people are more certified than theirs. It's all good.

And Mel. the baby puppy class is 4 to six months and I don't know if they ever decided that if puppies entered in those classes if they won enough of them could actually get a point or not. They were still arguing about it when they first started including the 4 to 6 month classes--mostly you see them with Specialties. But I don't know how it works when the class was offered as part of an Obedience and Rally show a few weeks ago.

Most of the puppies you seen in the classes are nearly 6 months and there are only a few puppies in the classes and only a few breeds in the groups. As I recall Joey had about 6 or 7 puppies in the working group.

They are always fun to watch though

And thank you, thank you Frank (aka TN) for posting that picture--at least this way everyone knows he's a real dog and not a figment of my imagination.

Kenny, Mr B looks very stylish in his fancy new MeadowCat coat.

Won the working breed group in the baby puppy show? Surely not in this last one given his current tender age...

Mr. B is dapper in his new duds...and a handsome in his prime fellow too. Looks like he may be getting a little tired of the picture taking in that last one.

Joey pic

From Aunt Bug:

From a baby puppy show when he was just under 6 months. He won the Working Breed group. He's Foxfire's Ready to Rumble a Toad grandson through his sire Ch Foxfire's Hudson Bay.

I am woefully deficient.

So you were the inspiration for the "Blinker Fluid" prank on YouTube?

melbrod I interrupt this love-your-cat fest to say that they get what they deserve. LOL Yesterday I had to fish Trip out of the drawer where I keep my ziploc baggies/aluminum foil/wax paper/saran wrap (no parchment paper yet) just as he was working at sliding back behind it, and the day before I had to remove him from the refrigerator AND the dishwasher. He was around to "help" me pack the Christmas ornaments and put them in the attic too.

He is fortunate that he always announces himself when he squeezes past me into some verboten place, otherwise he would be locked up and lost for hours. Actually, he has been a few times--I guess he doesn't ALWAYS say where he's going.

(And what is it about attics? Our last cat got stuck between the attic floor and the ceiling of the room below it once. I'm not sure she admitted that she was stuck, but we had to cut a hole in the attic floor to get her out. And then she did that little lick-herself thing to prove she had actually MEANT to spend half a day exploring the hidden regions of the house.)

I have a lot of pillows on my bed, including a body pillow. Sometimes my Fenris curls up so close to the body pillow that I can't see he's under the covers, and when I sit down on the bed to put my socks on, I end up sitting on him! He'll shoot out from under the covers and then give me the most indignant look, as if I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. And of course I feel terrible (although it's not like I *really* sit on him, because I barely touch him before he's gone, but still...). Poor, abused kitties....

I can't believe I'm telling this story--it's embarrassing to both Leon and me.

Pay attention...

Ignore the suggestion if you are allergic to cats...
