Last time I really talked about Rem was last April when she was hit by a car. She suffered abrasions and some emotional scarring, but with lots of cuddling we got through that in a jiffy. For several months after, she was terrified to even go near our own car despite previously enjoying to go for rides. but, like the champs we are, we pulled through, and she's flying up into the backseat like an old pro.


We've completed basic obedience, and even over the summer began some cik&cap agility jumps without the bar (she was hit by the car at just shy of 12 months old, so I certainly wasn't going to be taking any chances). Although we virtually got nowhere, it was a perfect start to forming our working relationship, which was my goal to begin with- it really had nothing to do with exactly what we accomplished with the jump. At 17 months (August) we began working with frisbees, but it wasn't long before the cold weather hit, but that's OK, it'll all start again soon.


However, we have begun...... SEARCH AND RESCUE TRAINING. Can you believe it? I can't. The winter has kind of disabled us outdoors since it's been a ridiculously bitter one, but she has learned a solid, efficient alert while indoors. She actually knocked my glasses off my face once. Next step, is figuring out what exactly to alert, which will probably start once College stops killing my brain.


We certainly haven't forgotten Sledding though (: I started sewing my own X back (not as hard as you think it would be) but put it off thanks to school, yet again. THEN AT SUPER WALMART LAST NIGHT (yes, I'm so excited, it needs caps) they had a really nice "walking" harness (hate that. harnesses shouldn't be for walking -_- unless there's some medical issue) that I figure I could alter just to see if she'll even pull something or if I'm really going to have to work with her. All the snow had melted yesterday, but its back today, so hopefully I can get out there to do my little testin x) I don't want to rush through this harness anwyay, but especially not if I'm going to have to do a buttload extra trainingwise, aswell. Oh all the things I would do if only I had the time...


She's learned some pretty neat tricks lately, which I should totally video and post here. I was going to teach her how to open my mom's bedroom door, but who knows the shenanigans she would get into in the middle of the night. However, she has learned how to turn the light on and off, how to sit "pretty", and we're working on roll over. Simple things to rack the brain.


As for myself, college has been... hard. To say the least. My professor is kind of crazy about things being absolutely perfect- so I've really had to work to get something over a C. Which is totally not what I'm used to. Also taking online schooling to be certified to instruct dog training classes! Totally stoked for that. I could just take the certification test, but, the way I figure I can always learn something new. Even though it's going to cost me $2400 more than just the test. Ohwell.
