A New Revelation

I haven't been posting. Truthfully, I haven't felt the need to post anything. I figured I'd "been there, done that".  I figured no one would be reading, and I have nothing to say anyway.  But then it suddenly dawned on me.I miss Bosley.Whil...

My Hearing Dog Just Arrived

I was accepted to get a hearing dog from the International Hearing Dog Inc.a while ago. Finally the trainer, Robert Cooley from there flew Douglas down from Colorado. He is in town for a few days to teach me how to train the dog. Today we worked on...

Going To Meet Douglas

I had signed up for a hearing dog through the International Hearing Dog Inc. Since I can't hear things with my hearing aids off, it would help to notify me of things that make noises. It's a big help when I am home alone. If the smoke alarm goes off...

He's Fine, Dammit!

"Does your dog need water?""No. He's fine.""Are you sure? I don't mind.'"No. He's fine. He was fed and watered before we left home, and it is winter.  If he were thirsty, he would let me know, and I'd be asking you for water for him, but he's fi...

Laying on of ... Paws?

I was ordained to the priesthood yesterday.  I'd given my dog to a friend to hold on to while I sat at the front of the church, but Ekko cried and cried to the point where I got up and got him to be with me.  He settled down and laid at my...

Updates

Sorry for the long stretch between postings. It has been a hectic couple of months. Ekko and I are doing nicely as a team. It took (and is taking) awhile to get used to his quirks (and he to mine, I'm sure). I've come to the conclusion that standar...

In School

I've been back at school at Dog Guides 3 day now, I think, and those days have been jammed with activities.  Starting with simply meeting each other. The first day, we as a group, met for the first time over supper.  I suspect we're all in...

THE Interview

Had my interview today.  This is part of the process where the environment is checked for things that could potentially harm a dog, and questions are asked to see exactly what the person needs the dog to do.  Questions are straightforward a...

Marathon training: Day 19,20

Day 19 had a 30 minute run at the crack of dawn on the treadmill. Boring as! So I found a local running club online and turned up tonight – only a 15 minute walk from my house! I was thrilled to discover the running group is based in a huge lei...

A Message from Theo to Bosley

(Theo is the canine companion of Silke, who is a minister.) Dear Bos,  I have to admit that I am occasionally surprised by the lady I take care of - once in a while, she will look at the big square of paper on the cold food storage locker -...

Hearing Dog Smudge 2000-2012

Dearest Smudge, You came into my life 12 years ago. I was scared of dogs but I’d decided to give a Hearing Dog a chance and see what transpired. The first time I met you was at the Hearing Dogs training centre in Saunderton, Buckinghamshire. Yo...

Church Again

Interesting time in Church today.  Between Laura's dog grumbling at the length of the sermon (yes, she was just full of editorial comments today), and Bosley snoring through the sermon, I think we can safely say it was noisy in church.  The...

The Happy Dog

No reason to post really. The dog is asleep at my feet. Snoring softly. Super dog and I'm glad he's in my life.

Update

Bosley seems to be doing a lot better, although I've noticed his lymph nodes were up again the other day - in his neck and one under his left armpit. They were down today, so I'm being cautiously optimistic.  I don't want to be one of those craz...

Bosley's Operation

Bosley is recuperating.  His paw was operated on yesterday, and I was then given one very groggy boy at the end of the day.  Think 80 lbs of dead weight. He could hardly walk and his eyes were hanging down to there.  The vet tech hoist...

Sick Dog Update

Bosley has gone through more blood work, an x-ray and Lord knows what else.  His operation is scheduled for Wednesday, April 4, 2012.  Because his "thumb" is being amputated, his balance will not  be affected.  Dew claws and dew c...
