Bad blogger update

June 30, 2009

It’s HOT here in Texas. We’ve been having temperatures of 100+ for the past week or so, and it’s just been too hot to do anything, including have classes. I was planning to get back to blogging this week since it had calmed down some, and on Saturday night, my laptop (The Kayleeputer) promptly committed suicide by colliehair. (Really- it’s actually a motherboard problem, and I *DO* use canned air on it regularly, but I suspect it just was tired of it’s sad, sad existance in a house full of things bad for computers.) I’ve ordered a replacement (IBM T50, 15″ 60GB HDD 1GB RAM) but it won’t come till Thursday.The new computer is currently in Memphis. FedEx tracking is ADDICTIVE. I keep checking to see if it’s gotten loaded on the truck yet- it may get here TOMORROW instead of Thursday, if I’m lucky!

I still have internet access from work (THANK GOD) and will try and get better about updating this week! Coming down the pipe – thoughts on approximation, balanced training, timing, and how to demand perfection without driving your dog* or yourself insane.

*Unless your dog is a border collie and LIKES that sort of OCD thing.

I’m such a geek…

Gourdo update….

February 26, 2009

Although Kaylee has decided the Gourdo is not actually interesting,  Lizzie and RITTIE have decided that it is Made of Awesome. 🙂 Photos forthcoming.

I broke something….

If you’re looking for the forum, it should be back tomorrow. I broked it trying to add a chat. 😦

Forum is live again; however, we still don’t have a chat. 😛

Quick note!

Dogstar Academy now has forums!

I’ve been meaning to set this up for a while, but with the recent demise of the CU list, I wanted to set up an alternative place for discussion. So go check them out!
