Thanks to Monique for forwarding me The Prayer of the Fenway Faithful.
The Prayer of the Fenway Faithful (aka Red Sox Nation)
Our Father, who art at Fenway...
Baseball be thy game.
Thy Kingdom come,
Playoffs need to be won,
On Earth, then on to the Cask 'n' Flagon.
Give us this day, a perfect Papi,
And forgive us our losses,
As we forgive those,
Like Bill Buckner. (Eric Gagne)
And lead us not, into desperation,
But deliver us from any losses.
For thine is the Power,
And the Glory,
To beat the Rockies ,
Forever and ever....the Yankees still suck
GO SOX! :0)
Champ and Milo
My dogs have no concept of why they haven't been getting regular runs lately. They have no way to know that I have been overbooked, overworked, and overwhelmed for the last few weeks. When I told them over and over through out the week that on Wednesday (today) I would take them running at Hinkley Park, they just cocked their heads and wagged their tails, searching for the phrase words "wanna go out?" among my human garble. Hinkley was not far from my morning appointment with Milo and Champ and I cleared my schedule to make time to run my dogs today. Today's walk in the woods was as much for them as it was for me.
Finn has been my "right paw dog" and he has been instrumental in helping these two rescue litter mates get over their leash reactivity. We trainer types prefer not to call dogs aggressive and much prefer the term reactive. To date Finn has helped nearly 50 reactive dogs in private sessions with his excellent dog skills and his good guy mellow demeanor. It is getting to the point that he gets more private bookings than I do. I am thinking about writing a book about Finney's "bait dog magic" in hopes of helping other people and their problem dogs. I have started a "Friends of Finney" journal and Milo and Champ will surely get their own chapter. After 3 initial training sessions, Champ and Milo signed on for three more and today being the 5th session they were even ok with Charlee walking in close proximity.
Good dogs Milo and Champ!!
After both my dogs got done assisting me this morning we made a B-line over to Hinkley Park.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. All I can say is that the lingering wet dog smell in my car was so worth it. And I vow to my dogs not make them wait weeks for the next great dog run.

The world has lost one great trick dog. You may remember Shebang from her appearances on Pet Star a few years back. Here is one of her most famous tricks.

Here are a few of my other favorites:

Shebang was only 8 years old. We are all sorry for your loss Tammy.
In the last few weeks, I have been bombarded with ultrasonic pet solutions for barking dogs both on my welcome home pages and via direct marketing. The makers of these ultrasonic products claim it will solve both my barking dog problems and even stop my neighbor's dogs from barking. By emitting a noise only a dog can hear when they bark, the company claims the dog will find the product so annoying it will quiet them.
Beware direct marketers of the can of worms you may open when you fill my in box with crap.

Bed time story hour at my house. The dogs always join us. Sandy (on the bed) enjoys our nightly ritual to.
Finn arrived just a bit late. He was sleeping on his bed and he was quite exhausted from our weekend away at the Brown Dog Inn. The kids, dogs and I took care of the kennel over the weekend while Holly went to her Mom's 80th Birthday party in Florida.
Shortly there after I heard...
"he has all the blanket, get off my feet, your hogging the bed and move dog move!" When I went back into the room, this is what I saw.
Sandy was forced to find a soft spot elsewhere, but he sure didn't go willingly.
Heads up to all you dog lovers out there who have enjoyed the huge field at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. The unofficial "dog park" is now a construction site for the new Bowdoin ice skating rink. I am sure there is still plenty of field still left, but it sure won't be the same.
Earlier today while browsing at The Kittery Trading Post, I snuck up on my 10 year old and observed her looking intently at boots that looked very much like the ones pictured below.
Not knowing I was behind her, she exclaimed out loud:
"What the heck! Those boots look like someone skinned a Collie!"
Then she turned to the woman standing next to her and in her best dramatic voice exclaimed:
"I hope no Collies had to die in the name of fashion!" Then as she lightly bopped her head from side to side and back again, she let out a
disapproving "mmm mmm mmmm."
There was laughter heard from as far as a few isles away and I proudly claimed her publicly as my kid.
For the first time ever, I arrived at Camp Buster early (insert in the daylight), which left plenty of time for a photo op at "the sign." The sign is only 5 miles from camp.
Finn's and his new friend Simon, play at the beach on the first day.
Sophie wants in!
Paw print tiles made at Barks N Crafts will adorn the dining hall next to the camper's handprint tiles.
Viva la Buster!

After making her tile, Charlee, a 4 year veteran of camp, took her self to the pond, to wash the paint off her own paws, to the amazement of the rest of us.
Finn, first thing Sunday morning. It didn't take long for all the dogs to scare the Loons away.
Tammy and Kiva early Sunday morning.
Benji, the black lab shown swimming, dove into the water in search of a marrow bone that I had taken away from another dog and thrown off the dock 10 minutes before he even arrived. Benji could air scent the bone, much in the same way that cadaver dogs can smell through water. How cool is that?
Google direct marketed me this morning and sent me the info on the Trackstik II, a personal GPS device. I am soooooo very tired of getting lost trying to find the homes of my private clients, but at the same time, I am not quite ready to dish out $350 bucks for a GPS. At $179.00 bucks, I am very tempted!
Is this product as good as it looks?
