When the pack is on the trail of a possum on fence or tele wires, it's very hard to snap them out of it. (Notice Eva shifts into overdrive, sneaking out)

In this case, DW proclaims "Pill" (daily pack Thyroid med/ Cosequin supp wrapped in thin ham slice) to break them off & lure pack back inside. For emergencies, normally I just slap my forearm and proclaim "Fly" and Mr. Spocko will head back a full speed to me no matter what he's doing- (to rescue me from the Fly..) didn't work this instance.
Not an expert but, it sure seemed like there was a breakdown in the chain of command

Yea! What the hell do ya think you were going to get out of a bird named ken..Eggs! Fertilized ones!!

SP , let Ken fullfill his destiny. Any good chicken farmer has to be self reliant and be thinking of next years birds. Who needs the Post Office?

The Devon Rex breeder that we are on a waiting list for (gosh, that's a badly worded sentence!) is going to be in our area for a cat show in a couple of weeks...super excited to (hopefully) get a chance to meet her in person and talk cats!!!

We're likely still a couple of years away from a kitten - Devons have small litters and her waiting list is extensive. But for those of you who are cat lovers, you can take a look at some Devon eye candy on her Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/purexdevonrex/

Not even a little! They are nice and healthy. Cats shouldn't be fat!

Devons are a petite breed. You can read about the breed here: Breed Profile: The Devon Rex

I was trying to catch up on the chicken thread--but maybe I did=-the last date I see here is 8/7--I think that was yesterday?

Ali's eating gain--some is much better than nothing.

Um--the left coast Portland has taken a turn for the better--considering last week they were predicting temperatures approaching upper 90's this week and even though the weather people (is that anything like the pseudopleople of science fiction fame?) had lowered their expectations we are getting even better. Yesterday stayed in the very low 80's until after 4:00pm and popped up to 84 degrees for the last few hours of the day but this morning which was and still cloudy they were saying was going to burn off early and it hasn't (it's already 10:00am and cloudy and cool. High is supposed to be 82 degrees and maybe some rain in the afternoon--I'd like that--I'm sick of watering...

What else is happening--my geriatric visitor is still her and still voluntarily eats almost nothing--guess I better go give her the snack of frosted mini wheat bisquits (I don't know--I'm just not at all right--I can't spell bisquit in anyway it looks correct). Anyway she still eats those and calories is calories--and she gets them any way she'll take them--it's either that or dropping little balls of food down her--that makes both of us sad but she needs more than frosted wheat mini bisquits. And raw chicken gizzards and the liver bisquits (oatmeal, liver, eggs and a package of onion soup mix--bake, cut up into brownie sized sqares)..

So mini wheat thingies--here we come and then I'm taking a nap!

Dang it...now I have to look up how to spell bisquit (it's biscuit, but I bet you're thinking of Bisquick, AB.) I'm fine (more or less) so long as I just let my fingers type without thinking about it (except for typos, which are many) but ask me to spell something so I have to actually think about what I'm typing, and words look funny no matter HOW I spell them.

Just got back from agility....the teacher really worked us today. HDD did wonderfully..I couldn't remember where to go next.

Does anyone know a way to teach yourself a course (these were only about 5-6 obstacles, but lots of turns) so I can go the right places in the right order? She has the little cones out (we just started those a little) but right now, she's not asking us to follow them--she just tells us just go here, go there, jump this, jump that, flip, go through the tunnel instead of the walk, flip around, do the walk (this time they were lined up right next to each other so it was tough for the dog to figure out where you're sending him) She does kinda show us how she wants us to turn, which hand to use where, etc, but HDD is so fast, I'm booking it just to keep up and lose track of where I am.

Oh...I wanted to mention...My brother (from Louisiana) is coming in to visit Friday through Wednesday, so I probably won't be on here much then. Ya'll be good now.

Don't make a lot of work for me out of sheer -ness that I'll have to clean up when I get back.

Just got back from agility....the teacher really worked us today. HDD did wonderfully..I couldn't remember where to go next.

Does anyone know a way to teach yourself a course (these were only about 5-6 obstacles, but lots of turns) so I can go the right places in the right order? She has the little cones out (we just started those a little) but right now, she's not asking us to follow them--she just tells us just go here, go there, jump this, jump that, flip, go through the tunnel instead of the walk, flip around, do the walk (this time they were lined up right next to each other so it was tough for the dog to figure out where you're sending him) She does kinda show us how she wants us to turn, which hand to use where, etc, but HDD is so fast, I'm booking it just to keep up and lose track of where I am.
Mmmm--well as long as you are working by verbal commands from the trainer I don't think there is a good way to learn a course--at trials (and at classes from some instructors) you get a piece of paper with the course on it--including the cones (numerically marked) and pictures of the jumps and obsticals. Using the map and walking the course several times (without the dog) usually will give you a good idea of the course layout and what comes first an what follows.
My friend who actually ran my dogs in agility used to make me lay out course and give her a piece of paper with them diagrammed--meant we weren't working with all of the obstacles (because we didn't have all of them but between her obedience set and mine we had several jumps, a broad jump, she had a regulation tunnel, between us we had enough coupons from one of the pet food companies who was offering agility equipment one year to get a regulation teeter and we improvised a dog walk with a 12 x 20 plank on cement blocks. Oh yeah, and she had a rickety four legged table that just barely worked for a table--it was so wobbly that none of our dogs ever had a problem with a regulation table in the real trials.

When obstacles are lined up so that the dog has to make a choice--those are differentials and you'll see those getting more and more difficult so make sure you are teaching DogDog the names of all the agility equipment.

And I could NOT spell obstacle--no how no way--finally had to resort to the Dictionary.

Some pics from the last week or so

First up, a curious otter

Next, we have a robber fly eating lunch. Or dinner. Or both

How about a dragonfly?

And last but not least, a few butterflies

OK, well, HDD goes wild in his agility class sometimes, but at least he doesn't do this:

She tells us that when we're walking the course, or learning it, that instead of saying....1..2..3..to find our way through the obstacles, we say tire..walk..tunnel...jump..tunnel or whatever order we're supposed to go in.
But like today...I got HDD through the hoop, through a tunnel, over a jump, up the dog walk, flipped into the end of another tunnel; I was supposed to take him over a jump next, but got confused. I did take him over a jump...just not the one I was supposed to.

She tells us the course, more or less, as she walks through it, talking about what to do and what the dog might decide to do instead, and then we're expected to go on our own with no cues from the trainer (except to help when we or the dog messes up--takes a ramp instead of a tunnel because we're lined up wrong, or even if we're miscuing the dog by the way our feet are pointed--who knew agility would be so complicated?)

*sigh* And she knows better than to ask me to do the course first without being able to see someone else run it first...though she did say that as time goes on, she likes to call on the people who are always hovering in the back waiting for someone else to start, so my time is coming.

That was hilarious Mocha likes to do that spinning tactic when she gets wound up and I learned the hard and painful way to avoid her at all costs...one time she twirled into my knee and I was limping for a week.

Rather like the thing I learned early about Dobermans...never step aside to get out of the way of one who is doing the zoomies toward you....because he'll change direction at the last minute and then collide with you in your new place. Just stand still, grit your teeth (close your eyes if you must), and wait for him to zoom away again without touching you.
