Well I am blogging. Something I thought I would never do. My mindset approaching life as a blogger (is that a word? It sounds suspiciously rude if you ask me) is going to be the same as it was as I approached life as a vegan. I decided I would try it for one meal and then re-evaluate. Then one day, then one week and well, I am still a vegan today so maybe this will stick as well.
Let me just say, for the record, right now, that my spelling, grammar & punctuation is likely going to suck here. I can blame it on the fact that I am dyslexic but, as true as that may be, the real reason behind my writing form or lack thereof is quite honestly the same reason I resisted being a b-word in the first place . . .blogger I mean not b-otch (the reasons for that may be far more profound). Really, my life is crazy busy so I didn’t think I would have time to blog. We will see. Bottom line is if you are offended by a lack of perfect verbage you may not want to be a regular here at my blog.
So it seems that people that blog tend to share a load of personal information about themselves on their blogs . . . sometimes embarrassingly so. I always wondered why that happens. I guess, if I qualify to have an opinion (now that I have a case study of one blog post) is that I guess it just happens . . since it appears that on my very first post I divulged two pretty personal details about myself! I’ll try not to let that happen too often.
Anyway another thing I notice on blogs is that alot of people sign their blogs with some cutesy little catch phrase or famous quote. I’m not going to do that but I am going to do something for myself. I am going to end my posts with something I am grateful for (there I go, I think I just dangled something there in that sentence didn’t I?). Anyway I think gratitude is a great feeling and if I am going to post, I am going to do something for myself every time I do it. That is, I am going to write something I am grateful for (whoops there it is again).
So I must start by saying I am being grateful for John. He is a good guy and after 13 years I think I will keep him:).
Enjoying reading and learning everything about dogs / K9 Sadie and I are learning and having fun 🤩 Thank you ☺️
I’ve never faithfully followed a blog before but I certainly will be following yours. I love your wit and your dedication. I’m getting my first Border Collie in three weeks (not my first pup but my first BC) and I’m trying to devour all the knowledge that I can acquire. As a former grammar professor, I can tell you that I still make mistakes! The purpose of writing is about communicating and you excel at that in your blogs! Thank you for sharing!
Wish I had knowledge of you years ago. You’re a witty and generous soul so will enjoy your journeys now. Here’s a heart ❤️ For you.
It’s so awesome too have a glimpse at your beginning as a blogger.
You were funny then and you’re funny now.
I love how real you are. I feel like I get to know you by tuning into your blogs and podcasts.
I wish I had found your body of work three and a half years ago when Phoenix 🐕🦺 came into my life full time and was in need of recovery from doggy PTSD. If I could help your team figure out how I could have found your work sooner I would love to do so.
My first time even reading a blog! Sitting here with my 3 1/2 month old pup resting belly up after watching 3 of your Shaped by Dog podcasts this morning. Feeling grateful and happy.
Thanks for sharing 🥰 you’re great!
Blogs will be new to me. And as for spelling, Google does a great job!
Susan is a great teacher, and instills confidence in all with any doubts about about themselves. I’m glad to be here!
I enjoyed it. You write like I think. I get it!
Look forward to fun reading from you. Love your sense of humor!! As for John, I enjoyed being judged by him many years ago in obedience…he is a keeper!! Enjoy life…..skip the grammer…
Looking forward to reading your posts. I’ve been a fan for a while and am just getting into agility with my dog.
An attitude of gratitude is always a welcome read.
Oh my Susan! You never cease to amaze me.
Proper or improprer grammer aside I just love your writing. You have me laughing out loud. Sprinkled amidst your thoughts as always are some wonderful inspirational comments both about dog training as well as about life. You really challenge me in so many ways and I am grateful for that.
BTW, speaking of getting personal, the picture on the blog of you sitting on the loo while training the dogs was a real hoot!
Love your ramblin’ and can’t wait for the DVDs
AND…He is an awesome person for whom to be grateful!
That’s hilarious. Your rambling is so real, I could swear we were all sitting around the kitchen table and I just wiped some almond butter off your nose.
