I Promise It's Not on Purpose!

These long absences, only posting updates on Facebook and Instagram... I don't mean to, I swear!

I still find creative ways to torture my dogs. Though this year they didn't have to hang out with Santa at all, which only seems to make me sad.

We still have a Tater Tot.   Still.   When he arrived at 12 weeks old I thought he was gangly and awkward, but man did I speak too soon!  While I love me some Tot, this guy needs to find a home!  He is shy and sweet and looooooves other dogs.  In fact, he would be perfect for me... if I wanted three dogs and to always be single.  Luckily, he is meeting another potential adopter this weekend- paws crossed it goes well!

I am officially running my own dog training business, Friends Again Dog Training.  I've been so busy that blogging (and showering) haven't even made it on my to-do list for weeks.  But when work is fun, it's easy to get carried away.  Also, I have a logo.  How official.
Who is that happy pit bull?

The last thing, which I'll write more about in a separate post, is that Skye and I have officially joined Paws for Friendship, a therapy dog organization with branches all over the world.  This morning was our first official visit with the chapter coordinator so we could see how it's done.  We visited a nursing home and had the chance to spend time with the elderly men and women who live there.  Now I can find my own visiting sites closer to me for Skye and I to visit a few times a month.  I have to say, I was pretty darn proud of my little blue pit bull today.


  1. Looks like you are good to go with your boots on.great job Skye. Bet you made lots of people happy

  2. Way to go Skye! Such an amazing accomplishment! I've been thinking that in the coming months I'd like to start therapy training Athena. I'm going to look into Paws for Friendship because I've never heard of it =)

  3. That's awesome! I've been meaning to do therapy work with Norman since I got him. I think it needs to be my new year's resolution! Skye looks so at peace:) And the boot and hat torture is hilarious!

  4. Looking at that first picture, I think Skye might really be shrinking. I bet the folks you visited loved her!

  5. Oh I have missed you! But it is so exciting that you have been so busy with your business! Mom and I wish we lived near you -- I bet you could teach us so much cool stuff!

    Also, those older folks are very lucky to get a visit from Skye! She is such a good girl :)

  6. I can't wait to hear more about the therapy visit.
    That is an EXCELLENT picture of you with the pups-- you look amazing! I love it!

  7. Trinity is very jealous of the snow you guys got (I'm not, lol!). I would love to do the TDI/CGC test but she's not ready yet. She still needs treats during training and I'm just nervous that she will fail :( But congrats to Skye on her visits!

  8. Gosh I miss your posts, it's good to hear about what's going on. Way to go, Skye, showing everyone how great pit bulls really are. We're all very proud of the way you represent pit bull dogs everywhere. Maybe Titan will be a therapy dog one day, when he learns how to politely greet everyone.

  9. We are also experiencing long absences. Life is like that sometimes

    I can't exactly remember why--maybe it was peer pressure from our health-driven community, who knows. (only because they moaned about eating their veggies).

  18. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more
    about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do not discuss these topics.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
