Jan. 15, 2021 Snowfall in Michigan

These are some photos taken in the morning in our area of central lower Michigan. This was a particularly gorgeous snowfall, actually…some of the photos were taken here on our lot, and some on the road when Pete drove to a nearby town. I will have more footage of this beautiful scene when my vlog …

Amazing Maisie: Intelligent Disobedience? Or Just Intelligence?

I have often wondered how intelligent disobedience is taught. Because I don’t use Maisie away from home yet I haven’t really looked into it much. But today she ignored a command of mine so that she could follow a different, previous command. Here is what went down: During the day my “spot” is at the …

Laid-back Kinda Monday

Today was one of the last 2 warm days of the season, at 75F and sunny with a light breeze, it was perfect. So I put everything else aside and chose to spend the day out on the patio with Maisie and of course Pete. I did some fall cleanup out there, with Maisie’s help …

Hard at Work

Today is a work day for Maisie and me. She hasn’t worn her pack in a long time – probably a year – but if I’m going to take her away from home I want her to carry my nitro tabs, chewable aspirin, inhaler, my wallet and phone, etc. We are just beginning work on …

I do believe I still need to post about Maisie’s (known) early days, then when she came to live with me, how I worked with her, etc. – above and beyond what I shared previously but for now I just have another tale to tell :). A couple of evenings ago I had a dilemma, …

Aug. 26 ~ National Dog Day!

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of dogs…so what better way to celebrate than to post pictures of our own two? Chuy is a rehome, some sort of terrier (JRT?) mix. He was originally an ESA for me, back when I was starting to get used to having dogs to help, and he …

Sisters Take A Trip – Day 2

First place we went was where Gwen had an appointment. Since there are stairs leading up to the office I waited in the car. Next she had an appointment to look at a possible apartment. We ate at Cheddar’s today. I only eat one meal/day when I’m not eating my normal LCHF; this helps keep …
