Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well and your shelties too.

Went camping last weekend and I forgot to re-fill the dog food tin in the camper. Big mistake. Had to buy another brand at DG. They loved it but Sammie's tummy didn't like Sunday after we got home. Thank heavens we were home but she, um, well, you know, upchucked.

I posted a pic to the team wall.

So my Sammy, (5 yo 60 lb sheltie), is on medication for an infection in her, um, nether regions. She has to take two pills, one kinda large and a smaller pill. I wrap them in the pill poppers so she'll take them. Anyway, she dropped the second pill wrapped in a pill popper and my Aussie Molly grabbed it. Boy were my fingers in her mouth retrieving that pill popper before she even had a chance to start chewing and gave it to Sammy. The pill wouldn't hurt Molly but Sammy needed it. Aw kids.

Hello. Hope everyone is well. Still got two shelties but rescued a mini Australian Shepherd mix. We think she's a mix of sheltie and aussie. She's such a lovable baby.

Morning all,

hot already this morning, will be in the 90's today.

Dog trials went o.k. one dog 2 firsts and the other got a 4th. It was in an indoor field and they don't really like it in there.

Been spotting a lot of rattlesnakes, deer and bald eagles lately. Several nests on top of telephone poles. Cant figure out how they manage to keep it in place.

TOPS this morning, I may have a loss, just depends on how the scale reads at TOPS. Usually it matches my scale but there have been times.

Dog lesson tonight and hopefully I will hear from the dealer that my truck is done.

Have a good day all,

Rick

Morning all,

Nice and cool here this morning, Looks to be in the 80's today.
Had a good turnout at Worship practice last night. Didn't take my guitar because I had to get a ride, but I did take my microphone.

Heard back from the dealer yesterday, It was the injector as I suspected. Going to cost about $1000. Hope they can get it finished today as we have an agility trial to go to tomorrow.

We have an agility trial in Livermore tomorrow at an indoor soccer arena. Last time we were there the dogs didn't do too well. Too distracted by the noise and other things going on. Everything just seemed to be more amplified. Hopefully they will do o.k this year.

Not much on the agenda today, some exercise this morning then out to put the horses out and clean the ban, then just odd jobs around the house.

I probably will not have time to post in the morning as we have to leave about 4:30 a.m.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Rick

Morning all,

Thanks Anne,

A little rain this morning, a pleasant surprise. It will help to knock down some of the dust. Wish it was a lot more. We so desperately need it.

Still waiting to hear what is wrong with my truck. I know it has something to do with the injectors but it is also an electrical problem which is not good. Searching electrical can run up a lot of time. In the meantime, I am without a vehicle.

Just going to do some work around the house today and see if I can get a ride to Worship practice tonight.

Have a good day all!

Rick

Good morning everyone!!

So sorry I have been absent for so long. I have found it difficult to get back into the habit of sitting at the computer. I read some posts then I get antsy and quit. since my knee surgery or I should say since a month after I have been pretty busy catching up on things I couldn't do before. Plus my wife and I have been going up to the only lake here that has a decent amount of water and doing some swimming and hiking. It sure is nice to be able to do those things again.

I did have to go back for my knee once trough E.R. but it was taken care of. It still hurts mostly when I'm sitting and I raise my knee. but walking there is no pain at all.
I also had to go to E.R. last week for an infection on my side. I was visiting my kidney doc and he was concerned about my white blood cell count being high and some other numbers. I mentioned this sore I have on my side that looked infected he looked at it and sent me to E.R. immediately, they cleaned it then put me on two different antibiotics for 10 days.

We have also started doing the dog trials again. One of dogs(the black and white one) is doing very good. We're hoping we might qualify for internationals this year

Let's see, what else... Oh, I got bit by a rattle snake yesterday. fortunately he just nicked my hand. I let it bleed till it stopped bleeding then cleaned it up. I called the e.r. a the hospital they suggested I go get some anti venom but I declined and decided to wait to see how I felt. My got a little stiff last night but this morning it is fine.

TOPS meeting this morning, this is my second meeting since my surgery. Today our Area Capt. is coming to do a program. Always enjoy it when she comes.

I am going to make a genuine effort to start posting more often. Now that I can get back to exercising and doing physical work I need to start keeping track again.

Have a marvelous Monday all

Rick

Thank you for the comments on my pictures, and thanks for adding me as a friend. We have owned Shelties for about 30 years. They are great dogs. We have been doing agility with the two pictured for about 3 years now and get to see all kinds of different Shelties plus other breeds as well. It's a lot of fun

Morning all,

Warm here this morning. Yesterday it got up to 105. More of the same expected today. We could use some of that rain out here, wouldn't even mind the thunder and lightning.

SRD(State Recognition Days) was a lot of fun. I didn't attend all three days so I missed the fun night but did get to the meetings. One of the speakers was from Joy-Fueled Souls (Caryl Derenfield) It was a class on Laughter Yoga. It was a lot of fun and obviously we laughed a lot. I got on my walk that they did around the hotel so it counts towards the "Busy Bee Challenge" They also had a dance company come in and talk about the health benefits of dance. And they had some young dancers (who had performed on Dancing with the Stars) demonstrate different styles of dances.

We also had a workshop on how to navigate the new TOPS.org site. I use it all the time but I did learn something so I was glad I attended that. In fact I am using the Super Tracker in the TOPS toolbox. It is one of the best trackers I have seen so far. Of course I have just started using it so we'll see as I get further into it

I will be looking forward to next years SRD. It will be in Ontario in So. CA. which is near where my family lives. It's theme is " TOPS Flower Power" so 60's and 70's. It should be a lot of fun. Maybe my little give away tokens will be fake joints or little pipes! (just kidding)

I will also be looking forward to IRD (International Recognition Days)in 2015. I heard it is suppose to be in Reno. That is just a few hours from here. A lot closer than San Diego.

Needless to say, as with every time I go to SRD. I am re-motivated to get back down to my goal weight and make a stronger effort at what I need to do.

Missing TOPS meeting today. Too much to do this morning with unpacking and getting things things caught up. Trip into town for some groceries and to the cleaners, mow the yard, and of course clean the barn and exercise. I am starting a kettlebell program with my own personal instructor, my daughter. I don't know if I mentioned it or not,(probably did as I'm always bragging about her) She is now helping teach Kettlebells, boxing and Zumba at the gym she goes to. So hopefully she will help keep me motivated.

Gotta run, much to do

Have a wonderful day all!

Morning all,

Sorry I've been away. My wife has been on vacation and we've had a busy kind of hectic week. A lot of running around. Had a 4 day dog show of which we went to two days. It was a good weekend. My new profile picture show the results.
Right now I'm getting ready to leave for Santa Clara where our SRD for TOPS is so I wont be back until Monday.

Gotta run,

Have a good weekend everyone!

Morning all,

Just popping in to see if anyone was still around

Still hot here, yesterday it was 107 and still 90 at 11:00 last night. I will be glad when this heat wave breaks. But from I have heard and read there are heatwaves all over the country!.

Exercise this morning, then the usual chores. I am going to try to shoot the Perseid Meteor Shower tonight. I'll set my camera up and turn in early so I can get up between midnight and one. I am fortunate I have no city lights to obstruct the view.

Have a good day all!

Morning all,

Sorry to have been away so long. I just kind of drifted away and got out of the habit of posting.

We have been to two agility trials in the past few weeks. The last one (this weekend ) is a four day trial of which we only attended two. Yesterday alone they had 900 runs.

Kinzee ( our healer border collie)came home with a total of 8 blue ribbons. Jiminy (Sheltie) got two blues and an orange ( 3rd ). I don't know yet how many Q's they have recieved yet. we need to go on line and verify everything. Of course they are running novice right now, I'm sure the competition will get tougher as they move up in class.
But it was a lot of fun though tiring.

Hope everyone is doing well. Have a great and safe Memorial Day!

Hey Shirley.

She's on Tramadol (anti-inflammatory) and Rimadyl (for pain). Chelsi has a couple of safe places she can go to to get away from Sammie when she's done playing.

My puppy Abigail has decided she is going to make a play for the alpha dog position By this time she is way bigger than the other two,so I,m quite sure she can do itt.
I have tried to support glacier's role as the queen bee, however she has arthritis so bad, that when she jumps on glacier it knocks her down and she has trouble getting back up. I usually let the dogs work it out until it comes to the place where someone is getting hurt, Mama bear has to step in.

Chardonaay (the little rescue dog) has put puppy in her place several x now so she doesn't argue with her. My Goldendoodle is a high energy puppy.

I bet I will lose some extra Wgt now. Lol. She really keeps me on the run.

Good evening,

It's been a very stormy day. Started this morning with rain and thunder. I realized today that Sammie does not like the thunder. She was very clingy to me. Then it cleared up long enough for me to get my groceries. This afternoon did get outside to brush Sammie out. Boy she needed it too. However there's still more to come out. Then we are back in the storms again. Some areas are getting hail but so far none of that at my house.

How was your weekend?

Hi Shirley.

Glad to hear the new puppy seems to be fitting in. My Sammie still picks on Miss Chelsi but I've noticed Chelsi is "talking back" to her. But Sammie still pushes it. Sammie is actually stronger then Chelsi but I don't think she knows it.

Chelsi (11 yro) recently had her teeth cleaned and with her on arthritis meds has been doing very well. Before the meds, she would hardly get up unless she had to and rarely ran in the yard. Now she's like a whole new puppy.

Hi sheltie lovers.
My girls have been very busy trying to teach my new puppy the chain of command around here, otherwise known as the pecking order. This has been going on for about two weeks now.

I noticed today that Glacier my older sheltie was playing with her. YAAAY. I guess she decided that Abby wasn't going anywhere, so if you can't lick them, join them.

Actually I have to watch the puppy to make sure she doesn't, hurt the shelties. She has already outgrown them in heights

Have a great day everyone.

A VERY SCARY THING happend to me yesterday. I had purchased a Hartz Dentists Best bone for each of my beloved shelties. This bone appeared to be made out of a hard slippery substance. I gave one to each of my two shelties. They were chewiing on them happily, when I noticed Chardonaay reariing up and pawing on the floor, quite like a horse does when it rears up.
I knew at that point she was in distriss, I went to her, tried to get the bone out, but it wouldn't come out. At the same time, I tapped her on the chest, rather firmly, and offered her an exchange for it. Thank God, at that point, the tap and her wantiing to get another treat, worked, and the remainder of the partially chewed bone came out on the floor.

I will never buy that brand agaiin, oibviously. However, my other sheltie did not have any problem.
Just a little warning for all of us. From now on it will just be the milk bones, which they love anyway.

Hi Sheltie Lovers:

Hope you and your fur babies are staying comfortable in this weather. We are doing well, and my babies drag Dad out for a walk every day, cold or not. They don't seem to mind.

Hi Sheltie Lovers:

Hope you had a wonderful day today!
I used some of my day walking, and some trying to get last years filing caught up.
It seems good to start getting some things taken care of.

Give your sheltie a hug today. They will love you for it.
My senior sheltie seems to want lots of attention lately.

Good Evening Sheltie Lovers:
How did your day go today.
After going to church, and makiing lunch, I took a day off. I don't know if that was a good idea or a bad idea, but sometime we just need a day to kick back and do nothing.

We recently subscribed to NetFlix, and have really been enjoying the movies. Thought I would do a little posting, but haven't been doing much today iin the way of exercise.
Enjoy your evening everyone, will be back tomorrow.

Hi sheltie lovers.

Hope your day is going well. Hubby and I attended a funeral this morning and after the luncheon, we went shopping, had to purchase a new T tuning wrench for my dulcimer, then did some grocery shopping. Going to forego the nap this afternoon, got some things to get done.
Shelties are all feeling great and HAPPY loving the snow.

Good evening sheltie lovers.
This has been a long day for me, it's getting late, and I am getting tired, but wanted to say "Hi" to ev eryone before I call it a day.
Hubby went into town to pick up a few groceries, before the blow.
We are expecting from 6"-12" inches by Thursday nite, early Friday morning.
How exciting!!! Well not for me, but my two girls love to play in the snow, they are constantly begging to get in. Which is fine, except my senior sheltie is starting to develop arthritis, and I am not sure that she should be out rolling in the snow, She sure does like it.

Hope you all had a great day!

Hi Sheltie Lovers.
Hope your day went well.
I went shopping today, groceries and some other things.
Thanks for your advice Rick regarding the meds you are taking for digestive problems. I will check that out.
It sounds like you had a really tough time there, Hope you are feeling a lot better.
One thing I am taking is Activia yogurt. Probiotics are also good. I already take Omega 3.
Ithink I am a walking drugstore sometimes.
Have a great evening.

morning all,

Shirley I will let you know how it goes. BTW, I also had some digestive problems, serious ones. In Fact I ended up in the hospital because I lost 4 pints of blood bleeding internally. so much that it caused a heart attack as well. Anyway, as part of my regiment, I take Chia seeds for my digestive system. It also has a host of other benefits, Like it is High in omega 3. It is fully endorsed by my Doctor as well. Look it up and check it out.

No idea what the temp is this morning, I just know it's cold. and I wold just as soon stay in bed. But that's not happening.

TOPS today then work. This morning I have to make a few calls. One to the advice nurse and see if there is something I can safely take. then a call to see if our car is finished and finally get an appt to have some tires put on and a brake job..

I have this old cookbook I got from my BIL. It was my MIL's. It is called "The Way to a Man's heart" Originally produced in 1908. but this was a 1948 revision. It talks about how you should dress in the kitchen when cooking and table setting etc. pretty interesting. another thing mentioned is calories for men and women. Things sure have changed in the years. The first thing I noticed in the recipes was in the ingredient list the first item was almost always 'FAT"!

Have a great day all!

Morning all!

Shirley glad to see you here. And glad to hear your girls are doing well.

We are getting ready for some agility events beginning in February. Hopefully this year will be better than last. I had to have open heart surgery in May and it kind of put a damper on things.

I actually started Weight watchers this year. So we'll see how that does. So far it seems too be a pretty easy program and I'm not deprived of anything.

Gail, how are things with you?

Have a great day all

Hi everyone:
Got up early today, Another beautiful day. Have to enjoy them. They are so unusual in Michigan this time of the year.
Went to see a friend at a skilled nursing home, then went to get my hair cut, came home and played with the 2 girls, and now trying to catch up with all the news here, before I have to start supper.
Looking for new diet plans to help the wgt go off. Saw an article in a magazine at the store that Dr. Oz authorized about losing weight. Didn't get too much info from it. Once he said on his TV show, that safflower oil is a sure bet. Only.....it didn't work for me.

Of course like most people made a lot of goodies for Christmas, had the gang here, and I am having a hard time saying "no" to some of the fudge I made.

Hope you all have a nice evening.
Shirley

Good morning everyone, I really should say good afternoon,

Had a Dr.s appt this morning, which tends to take up a lot of your time, Now I have a pie in the oven, (for my hubby) and wanted to do some posting.
Beautiful weather for Michigan. The sun is shiining, (Love it) and the temp says 60, on our back deck. However, still have ice in the driveway. I love this weather, can't beat it. Hope it stays around for awhile.
My fur babies are doing great, one of them still barks a lot, and I don't think that is going to change any way soon. Have tried everything I know of to curb the barking, am still willing to try new things, if I hear of them; My vet said he wouldn't be able to handle that. And sometimes it gets tough. Right now I am working on picking up the fly swatter and showing it to her I think she may have seen that before. Anyhow, we love her to death, and she has such a loving, sweet personality.
Have a good day all.
Shirley

We have had great weather here the past couple of days. been in the upper 80's low 90's. I'm off today so will spend the day around the house taking care of projects,one of which is fixing our eliptical. We are a family who actually use our exercise equipment for something other than hanging clothes on,(LOL) Although I do have a few things I am selling that we don't use.

Getting closer to vacation time and of course I feel like I don't have enough time to take care of things that need to be done before we go but I know it will work out in the end.

Exercise this morning the take care of the animals and clean the barn.

Have a great day all!

Good evening.

HI Rick. It's good to hear things are going well for you. Glad you are able to get back to exercise too. Enjoy those cool temps.

We've been in a heat wave here. The AC nevers shuts off. We had a whopper of a storm last night and it cooled things down to 88 today but the heat is returning tomorrow and staying thru the first part of next week.

I've been getting in my exercise in the morning and some in the evening, all indoors. I don't do well in the heat.

Morning all!

I am on the mend and increasing my exercises. It has been 11 weeks since my bypass surgery, this morning I did 1 hour on the stationary bike and am lifting 15 lb dumbbells. It feels good to be exercising again.

Cool here this week. Today is in the mid 70's. Very unusual for us this time of the year but I welcome it. I will spend the better part of the day outside working taking advantage of the cool weather.

Well I have animals to feed and chores to get to.
Have a great day all!

Rick

Morning all!

It was 95 yesterday and we spent the better part of it cutting weeds. It is going to be in the 90's again today and the weed cutting continues. I hope we will be done by next week.

It has been such a long time since I went to "the races" I use to practically live there. I lived a few miles from Riverside International and Ontario Motor Speedway. I even raced a little and attempted to build a dragster but i was newly married and couldn't afford it.

My trip to the cardiologists went well everything is as it should be. Tomorrow I go in for a CT scan of my head. Probably won't find anything up there anyway, I've been a little scatterbrained lately!LOL

Aside from weeding, the usual chores this morning. I liked it better when other people were doing them for me. Oh well, vacations over!

Have a great day all!

Good evening.
Hi Rick, Glad to ďseeĒ ya. Recovery takes time. So sorry about the vision thing, I hope they get that cleared up for you.

Went to the races this weekend past at KS Speedway. It was stinkin hot our there folks. We had a good tailgate before the race starts. We took our own shade so that was helpful. Once in the stadium, we didnít sit in our seats long. With the heat of the day and the sun beating down on us, we just couldnít sit there. Went down to the shade and sat there for the little amount of time we were there. I have to admit that is one weekend Iím glad is over.

This weekend, we are staying home and DH is smoking some meat in his new smoker. We are just gonna spend the two days totally relaxing and lounging in the pool.

Have a good week.

Morning all,

cold and rainy here in sunny California! More thunderstorms today and snow in 6000 elevation.

We were suppose to go to an Agility fun day yesterday but it got rained out. Fortunately they called us before we took off as it was a two hour drive there.

Kenocookie, when I was in a wheelchair I had a power scooter also. Our old boy Jiminy who is passed now would do the same thing, He'd be all excited to go for a walk then 15 minutes into it he's barking for a ride

Gail, hope your allergies are better, but it sounded like you had a nice trip.

Church this morning then maybe lunch with my daughter. I'll try to ride my bike for 1/2 hour at some point today. I'm suppose to ride or walk 1/2 hr a day and log it then mail my sheet in to the Mulltifit program.

i'm able to a little daily, I'm glad for that. Sitting around having things done for me was driving me crazy.

I have to go in next week for a CT scan of my head. After my surgery a strange thing happened. The top half of my vision in my right eye just went black. It happened twice and didn't last more than a minute or so, but the Dr. is concerned some plaque or something may have dislodged from the vein in my neck where they went in and may be floating around in my eye or somewhere it shouldn't be.

Gotta run, dogs and horses are calling. Hope everyone has a Blessed Sunday!

Tuesday evening went for a walk with all 4 of the furkids. My husband who is in a power wheelchair went with me to walk with Vinny and Missy and I walked Charlie and Angel. We didn't even make it half way through the walk when Vinny started to lag. So Vinny rode on Daddy's lap for the rest of the walk. Vinny of course is Daddy's boy and is spoiled. So I walked Missy, Charlie and Angel. It was fun having my husband come with me. He's decided that he needs to start walking Vinny more often so he isn't so lazy. Today some of my friends are coming over to work their dogs on the agility equipment. So Angel should get a workout today and then Thursday my 4-H group comes over to work their dogs in obedience and agility. So Vinny usually gets worked in obedience, and Angel usually gets a good workout in Agility. Angel actually gets upset on Thursdays that the kids don't come over. I'm waiting to hear from a rescue in CA we maybe transporting some dogs down to Long Beach on Saturday morning and coming back the same day so it maybe a busy week for us.

Hey everyone. Got back from a camp trip to Truman Lake this weekend. Was really nice and wish it could last longer.

Suffering from allergies and the pills I take don't seem to help Someone suggested Zyrtec so will give that a try and see if it helps.


Have a great week.

Morning all,

Bright and sunny here on the west coast and the dogs are up in the hills doing agility training this morning. Kinzee is doing very good and her speed and focus has really increased this year. Jiminy is coming along but has focus issues and he is a yapper but I haven't had a Sheltie yet that wasn't.

Have to go pick up some hay today but it will have to sit on the truck till I can get someone to unload it. I'm going to try to mow the yard today. According to my little booklet I can use a riding mower now so I will putt around my yard.

Gotta run and let the horses out then hop on the stationary bike.
Have a great day all!

Good evening. Wondering how everyone is doing? How are those shelties?

Mine are at the lake with their father since yesterday afternoon and I have to admit the house is weird without them. But tomorrow after work, I'll be heading to the lake to my girls. Can't wait.

Have a wonderful & safe holiday weekend.

Kiss those shelties.

Hi Rick and welcome back. Just take it easy and let the body heal. Wow, snow? We've had some pretty cool weather here but no snow. I'm loving the weather and so NOT looking forward to the hot humid weather we usually get in the summer. Actually I'm hoping for a mild summer.

Hello all!

Doing ok here. still recuperating. Hope to go back to work in a couple of weeks.
We have had some crazy weather here. Still snowing in some parts and raining in others. The grass is usually browned out by now, but we still have storms coming through.

My wife is out working with the dogs. She got this new bait contraption. You use it as a target and when the dog gets to it it opens and gives the dog a reward. Pretty cool.

Hope everyone has had a good week so far.

Take care

Hello Sheltie lovers.

Hope everyone is doing well. The girls are doing fine. We've been enjoying the nice cool weather. Not looking forward to the hot & humid weather we get in Kansas City during the summer.

Work is going good. Still not real busy but the work is increasing. Been there a year and a half; man how time flies. One of my co-workers is retiring 1st of July. I'll sure miss her as we seem to have hit it off.

Have a good day!

Hello Gail,

It's been a while for me as well. I am recuperating from a triple bypass from a heart attack early may. I am going to be off "active duty" for about 6 weeks. Can't even drive a car!

My wife has started working with Kinzee and Jiminy again now that the weather is warming.

I will pop in occasionally. I can't sit here for long periods of time or my chest starts getting irritated at the stitches.

Hope you had a Great Mothers Day!

Rick
