Singing in the rain

It's raining cats and dogs. Ummm, dogs. Lots of CCI dogs.

I think we have a plan for my family. They drop me off Sunday night and return sometime between Friday and Saturday. Wow. Me and all those CCI dogs on the CCI campus. I'm so excited and nervous. I can barely write, let alone spell.

Actually it's 2 whole weeks of dogs. My family will just come in and out. A lot of it is lectures and working with my dog. Not interesting to young kids. And I also need time to rest after the intense days. The first few weeks will maximally intensively on my hands as I learn to work with my dog.

Okay, I'm totally gonna pass out from the excitement. Stop posting these little updates in tidbits, because each time I read one my blood pressure skyrockets!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just give me one long wonderful entry to savor like a delicious dessert!!!
No, I take it back, the tidbits are just as delicious!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Are you sure you don't need a training assistant? I know one who would be extremely willing and helpful and resourceful!!

I really would love to have you there to socialize with, but I really need to learn to work my dog by myself. Even my husband is not coming for the training. Unfortunately for you, it's not like a hearing dog where you need a training assistant to help with initial sound work.

Added initial since I know you now train Maya completely on your own.

Grin. I'm just kidding about the training assistant thing- it's wishful thinking on my part! Know that I'm SO excited for you. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

And while I do handle all of my dog's training at this point, I still try to recruit the help of others to set off certain sounds.
