My Puppies Care for Everyone

Yesterday I recorded my whole drive out to WonderDogs, where Belle and I take agility classes and Mom and Luka take obedience lessons. When I stopped at Wawa I decided to leave the car running, figuring I'd have some video footage of Belle either not caring I was gone or reeking havoc in my car. [...]

Class #7

I didn't post for class #5 and we couldn't go to class #6 because Belle was in heat but lemme tell you about class #7. We were a small class this week and one of my instructors was not there. We had an addition to our class this week, a corgi named Max. We started [...]

Woofing It: Interview Questions

    Did you start agility by taking classes? What were they like and how long was it before your dog started showing confidence on the obstacles?

Who’s Ready for Some Belle-O-Vision!?

Some Ideas for Presenting My Research

At the end of this semester I must present all the research I am doing. I've been meditating on that since I've involved so much media in my project. If I start recording some video diary entries now, I could do a lengthy vlogumentary, but I'm not sure how I would query that. I also thought about [...]

More Notes and Vlog #2

Our first class is tonight! Here is a brief vlog about Belle (and her sister Luka) getting their shots. Belle needs hers for class, but they were both due to get them. Don't worry, their big ol' Lab butts don't feel a thing. http://youtu.be/Wzcql6inWxs Agility is an athletic event which demonstrates a dog's willingness to [...]

The Year in Recap

It's been a pretty big year for me. I'm in a loving, committed relationship, I graduated college, my dog died, we have two furry additions to the family, I was accepted to grad school... I graduated with my BA this summer and I am seriously just amazed at myself. Growing up, I wasn't what anyone [...]
