Tell Me Thursday 2012 #6

I know, I know, you're in shock! A post! Careful not to hurt yourself, as you fall out of your seat in amazement! LOL! With hubby gone, off shore, I just don't have a lot of time to sit and chill. But, I have found a moment and have decided to participate in this weeks Tell Me Thursday by Crooks and Crazies! Woohoo! Go me!

This week's questions are:

1. Robin wants to know what your ideal number of dogs is?

Hummm, well right now I am pretty comfortable with 2. I have entertained the idea of maybe fostering, maybe once we have kinda settled into the house more and then might we look into it more.

2. Lora wants to know, if you find that your dogs are better or worse after time off from training?
With an established behavior or activity, I wouldn't say worse, maybe just out of touch, but they seem to bounce back into it fast. Now if it is a new behavior/activity *cough* *cough* like weaves, and you are a bad mommy and don't practice, then yes I would say worse, in that aspect.

3. What is your favorite power tool? What power tool do you wish you had?
Well mostly my hubby is the one in charge of power tool duty, not that I mind using them, I just have more faith in him then I do me! So let's see what the hubby has to say about this! :) Favorite would be, the cordless drill, and one he wished he had, would be a CNC machine. Now, that was out of my normal power tool knowledge, so for those (like me) who don't know, here is your fact for the day. A CNC machine it's a computer controlled cutting machine that can basically carve metal, wood, plastic into anything. Who knew! :)

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an astronaut or astronomer! I loved and still love the wonders of space. Some of my best memories are of me and my dad staying up late on chilly cold nights, looking through the telescope. We would look at the moon, planets and constellations though the telescope and even get my brother, sister and friends to come out to watch meteor showers.

5. How many of your friends are not "dog people"?
I would say one couple we know. They like dogs and all, might even get one of their own, but I wouldn't call them "dog people". I don't think they quiet get how dogs behave, interact or play. The husband, has on more then one occasion, yelled at, and broken up perfectly good playing behavior, with my dogs and a friends dog. Anyway, all of my other friends I would consider "dog people", some more "involved" then others (like me), but dog people all the same :)


  1. Great photos of the dogs!! They seem to always have fun!!

  2. Chase's response to this post "Hey, that Gwacie! Look her tail fuffy" Looks over to Riley "Who dat dog? he funny".

  3. OMG, I love the bitey face picture! Fabulous. Believe it or not I actually knew what a CNC machine was (but my dad and bro have machine shops and do all sorts of things). Two dogs is always a good number- easier to keep up with than say six. lol
