Well, it has been awhile because this semester has been incredibly busy. Between the plumbing issues earlier this fall, and teaching an upper level course for the first time has kept me really busy. The highlight of my day though is still coming home to three black balls of fur. I take Tal and Barney out for about an hour of play!
Barney and I have been going to obedience class for about 5 weeks now. We have about 3 weeks left. He is doing really, really well. After a couple of classes, I noticed that he seems more comfortable. We still have a ways to go for him in new situations and with strangers, but noticeable improvement. I also realized I have been grossly neglogent with Tal's training. So I am reacquainting him with stuff too!
About three weeks ago, our instructor asked who's dog was the best sit stay. Everyone in the class pointed to us! lol. The instructor took Barney's leash and he did great too!
On Tuesday night I take Tal out just me and him. That way they both get some one on one time with dad. DOn't feel too sorry for the one left at home. He gets a frozen kong treat. lol
Hi Guy, glad to see ya back- been wondering how you, Tal, Barney and the kitty are doing!
Welcome back, Guy, I've been wondering how you were and what's going on.

Hi! I sure have missed you and your gang!
Sorry to hear about those plumbing problems. I've been dealing with a minor kitchen issue today but FINALLY have it resolved, at least for now. Older houses. Nuttin like 'em, is there.
