Don't Worry, it's OK

I know I am bidding against my own pocketbook on KJ's blog....LOL.  I'm just having fun imagining what a bidding war would be like with Oliver.  He actually appears to like Solo, the new pup, and we are working at relationship building so Solo is not overwhelmed.

When Solo gets cool with him, I've got to work with Molly.  It's really holding her back in the house that she is afraid of him.  Dogs go through "fear periods" but she's been consistently frightened by him, and the devil takes him over when he sees her.

Oliver definitely has color preferences, and Molly is a red (or liver colored dog).  Moon, his buddy, is blue merle-very similar to grey.

We've had a hoot owl outside the window for several nights.  That upsets some folks, native Americans for one, but I love owls.  They usually end up near me anytime I stay in one place long.

I put the dogs up at night for many reasons, one more will be to let this guy hunt in my yard.  Not sure what kind of owl it is, it's not great horned or a screech, so it's probably a barn owl of some sort.  It's a single bird-I hope it finds a mate.  I love hearing them hunting a calling at night.

I've looked at couple of times at getting my raptor rehab license.  I don't know why it's fairly straightforward to get a falconry license but hard to get a rehab license.

I bought agility equipment for the big dogs for Christmas, but we aren't going to wait till then to use it.  Molly is in class right now.  I'm going to keep it behind fences though-they ate their tunnel they had before.  It was a cheap kids tunnel, well worth the 8 bucks!  But now it's time to add discipline into the mix-I'm going to need a heavy duty mixer for that one.

I'll have to check out the bidding wars!

Sounds like you've got your hands full with all the pups and sorting.
I know you'll do a great job with them all.

I hope Mr. Owl (or Ms.) finds a buddy soon.

Who is bidding against whom for what? I am lost here completely.

Hi Debra Kay!! Congrats on winning the bidding war - that was so exciting!! Thank you so much! Now Can you email me when you have a chance?

You certainly have your hands full with high energy dogs and bird. It must be quite lively at your house. We have had a Barred Owl trying to move in across the street from where we live. The crows and blue jays won't leave it alone. I hope it wins its space and takes care of some of the mice around here.

Lynn, you sound like me..'bidding wars'? I figured my brain was fried.

I love this cactus!
Debra, when do you open for visitors. Gosh, you have a lot of activity there. But tell Oliver he is still the best.

HCM!

KJ had a couple of paintings donated for her charity foundation. (Sorry, name escapes me at the moment-I'm in my post agility class comatose state). Oliver and I and a few other people were bidding on a painting-Oliver kept bidding after the auction closed because he wanted there to be no doubt he won won won.

He is not allowed online again until Wednesday.

I do a lot with layers in photoshop. When I get a section I like I merge them and move on. If I didn't, I'd keep arranging and rearranging and the day would be gone.....
