Karen: Wishing your brother continues to make progress in his recovery. Slow and steady wins the race. Glad your colonoscopy was a non-event.
Cindy: Sounds like you have made great progress n putting the house back together and getting through those clothing piles. We will be doing that over the winter now that the majority of the restoration is done and we can concentrate on "our" projects.
Keywestfan: hope your recovery is progressing nicely.
Yesterday was a busy one. My DB came to do some repairs around the house for us including fixing the wainscoting he had to remove so we could replace the jetted tub motor. I keep a running list of the jobs he can do that are beyond our skill set and he'll make the hour long trip here to do them. Some are 2 step like the wainscoting repair. I just need to paint the wall again but that is within my skill set. The rug cleaning company returned my living room and dining room rugs and took the family room rug to be cleaned. Of course, that meant furniture had to be moved but my DH, DB and I were able to do that. Now we can lay the rugs in the living room and dining room. With rain predicted for today, this will be today's project. We had an evaluation of Regan scheduled at Petsmart for participation in obedience classes. She was nervous when we entered the store but also curious of her surroundings. Tail tucked and pretty much remained there until we were leaving. She was evaluated on how she reacted to the dogs leaving the training class which was shy and moving back only if they approached her but no growling, barking or aggression. Once in the classroom ring she was hesitant with the male trainer but he was able to treat her so he could touch her, she took treats from him and made eye contact. He spent about 45 minutes So she has been cleared to join a beginners class in November. We have to wait until she has finished her vaccines and has been spayed. Spay appointments were 6 weeks out when we made her appointment. So I am pleased how much progress she has made with sitting and leash walking (except when that pesky chipmunk appears) in just 10 days. She has begun to be less hypervigilant and actually nap now where she only slept at night for the first week here. Have a good day.
