EGADS! Have I really not updated since APRIL?!? Oh my God, that's simply embarrassing.
I officially turned 23 on January 31, which makes me another year wiser, so the saying goes. To tell you the truth, I don't feel one iota wiser. What I do feel is more confident. Along with help from my therapist and psychiatrist, I was FINALLY able to get through to my parents that I was just not cut out for a desk job. It took FIVE YEARS PEOPLE. FIVE!!!! That is how long I have been warring with my parents about this. This subject would start fights like you wouldn't believe, but if my psychiatrist suggests dog training or dog grooming for me? They finally give in. I don't get it!!! Gr, frustration. So, I finally won. I'm looking at dog grooming schools this semester and starting dog grooming classes. I would prefer to specialize in dog training, because I love doing that more than grooming, but the nearest university that specializes in that is in...Texas. Yea, TEXAS. I'll stick with the grooming.
Oh, about the therapist. I had no choice. I still don't like going there.
Zena turned 8 on January 10. She's still a brat. Nothing new. If anything, she's gotten MORE NEEDY. She's driving me up a tree. Anyone need a Decker? I just need her off my hands for, like, a day. She's. Driving. Me. CRAZY.
For those who know me, and wonder where on Earth I am these days, I've become a recent convert to Tumblr and have become rather addicted. You can find me here . FOLLOW ME. There, I post dog training tips, articles I find inspiring, photographs I've taken, tags, musings (hmmm, sounds like journals. Why do I post there more often than I do here?), stuff about dogs in general (it is my obsession), the comings and goings of my life, and general randomness. Basically, it's a lot like my own brain, only on the World Wide Web.

In yesterday's Daily Deviations, there was a painting by Grungepuppy called "Blood Money." I became really inspired to write a post on my Tumblr about the subject, which is dog fighting. Dog fighting is a truly deplorable sport, yet so many people still enjoy watching it (and in some countries, it's still legal, which is plain sickening.) I didn't so much write about the sport, as much as remind people, how abusive, how sickening this is; in the USA, it's illegal in all 50 states.
Please help spread the post, the links, or the word around. I created it as an educational post, because so many people are still not taught about this awful sport.
