Success and epic fail this week

    Haven't been around a lot since I have been busy with church related activities and with car repairs. I'm in the process of converting to Catholicism and trying to be active in the parish as well as learning how to do some repairs on my van that aren't too terribly hard, but time consuming. religious education classes, parish events, regular stuff, van repairs, dog and other pet care..so much to do in a day! Can't wait for school to start and things to calm down a bit.

    Anywho, I spent the day cleaning and then shopping Tuesday. Had to get the kids school clothes and a ginormous list of school supplies. It was exhausting! Anyone who has ever school shopped with a teenage girl can relate, lol.

    When I got home in the evening I decided to take a shower to unkink the muscles in my shoulder and get rid of a headache. I did a lot of shopping at Wal-mart where there were more than a few people who must have groomed for the first time ever because they smelled like they rolled in vats of their cologne. Triggers headaches in me that can become full blown migraines.

    The Epic Fail:

    Renee is normally crated when I shower, but I decided to crate the other dogs instead and let Renee be out for a change. Of course, anything that can go wrong will. Renee decided to take exception to a small dog being walked by our house and ended up breaking a living room window. We have a picture window with 9 sections. She broke the bottom middle *sigh*

    Thank God, my Shana was able to tackle her before she went through. The guy walking the small dog stopped dead and just stood there, dumbfounded.

    After tossing Renee in her room and closing the door, Shana came and got me out of the shower. I ended up running down the hall with nothing but a towel on to make sure there was no damage to Psycho Terrier or my daughter. There wasn't a scratch on either.

    Instead of the leisurely shower and migraine free evening I was hoping for, I got to clear glass from inside and outside, scrape the frame clean, get a new piece cut, and make the repair.

    The Success:

    I finally got Rita to walk by quite a few dogs on her walk without making a fool of herself. She looked, but responded to a verbal "ANNNT! None ya business!" and continued on our way.

    And Owen finally, finally stopped pulling! He is sniffing a lot less and paying a lot more attention to me and my body language when we walk.

    The success is sweet, but the epic fail kinda takes the shiney off it, ya know?

    These are the days of our lives :) LOL

    A true blessing I have in my home is that while my windows LOOK like multiple panes of glass ... they are in fact single sheets of some kind of alien inspired hardened plastic. Even dogs with untrimmed nails haven't put a dent in them. My windows are nothing less than amazing.

    I have witnessed my dogs do their utter best to break the windows to get to a cat, squirrel, dog whatever ... I have seen the windows distort and bow and know that virtually every window in my home would be broken on a weekly if not daily basis were it not for their construction. I couldn't imagine dealing with my dogs and these windows if the windows were actual glass.

    Hey, no one was hurt, windows can be replaced...no harm, no foul :grin:

    I use the "none of your business" allot with V. regarding passing other dogs. She generally disagrees.

    Good work with Owen, I remember my Basset was quite the puller for a long time...had to be everywhere and sniff everything at once!

    Glad you are well despite your Walmart torment!

    6 more sections of the front window and I'll have super window, too. I replaced a few sections over the last couple years because of a rock tossed by the lawnmower and kid with a ball.

    I used to think it charming the house had original windows from 1955 and they were in beautiful shape. Now I just want real glass with double panes. And maybe dogs that don't like to look out the windows to watch the kids play and lose their minds over squirrels and other dogs that come by. Especially the smartass squirrel that likes to sit on the bricks of the flower bed by the window and tease the dogs with chittering and tail swishing.

    Lol, Jazzy, Miss V gets to have opinions. What do you expect? She's an only dog and the world revolves around her, after all :) .
