On Sunday, I was just finishing my coffee and getting treats ready to head out the door to noseworks class when our trainer called to say that class was canceled because there was no power at the training center. Apparently, several transformers exploded and most of the county where the training center is lost power. Luckily, my county still had power, so Barley and I just hibernated and graded papers instead. So, we've just been continuing our homework of building value for the box and hopefully we'll get to learn something new and exciting this weekend!

I didn't shut her in the crate or the bedroom (because Soth wouldn't get out of the bedroom and I felt bad putting her in her crate for extra time) while I showered on Tuesday. When I got out of the bathroom, she was standing in the middle of the kitchen counter where Soth's food dish is (luckily he doesn't get fed until after I get ready for work, so it was empty). She couldn't figure out how to get down. I don't know if it was higher than she thought it was when she hopped up there or if she was afraid of jumping onto the linoleum floor, but I had to start my day by lifting my dog off the counter.
|She's also decided she prefers to play with her brother's cat toys.|
But we did make up for some of the mileage we didn't get in earlier in the week with a good 4.15 walk at the State Park and another short walk in our neighborhood this evening.
|There were cool snow mounds all along the path.|
