So after months of contemplating puppies.. One fell into my lap.  A hairy hairless chinese crested.. that the more I research he may be considered closer to a true or moderate hairless as he has a smattering of body hair, not loads..

Obligatory pictures!!

This is Arson!  He was previously Fred..  He was SO a Fred before I shaved his face...  Picture of him being a Fred ;)

An he's wearing Cider's 'The Brain' Ella's Lead collar ;)

He's making new friends... He finds Dekka sexy, and she finds him similar.  Whippets and Cockers are scary.. JRTs are fine..  Smudge is dying to play with him.  He isn't getting it.  Cider is so scary he rolled onto his back for easy penis sniffing access..

I like stuff.  Apparently too much..  Have horse, need stuffs!  Bought 3 saddle pads, a tail bag, polos, boots, super duper fun bell boots, 2 blankets, a saddle, a bridle.. a saddle cover..

Spent way too many hours on kijiji looking at stuffs.. but got my blankets that way..

I love pics.. so..

Blingy bridle.. purple reins.. ;)

I have orange tiger boots in the mail.. and my purple zebra tail bag and polos should be being shipped soon..

Oh I also bought new dog tags on etsy from SayWhatCreations.  I got two of these, in brass with my cell number.. till now I've always used my home phone, but we travel so much... heart shaped tags.  I bought Cider a rubit recently.. so Cider has a tag again.. I can't find Smudge's rubit.. I've misplaced it.  Had to take it off at a Rally-O trial in the ring..  And put it who knows where.

I still want one of these for Panzer halter tag.  But until the fence has working electric.. she sticks her face through too much and too often.  She's ripped her halter between two holes..

I found this super awesome store last night.  Sadly they only ship in America.  I want like $200 of stuff.  I need to go on a vacation to America again.

I also found a Frenchie breeder I kind of like.  Still high priced.. but they have an agile water loving bitch.  I'd like to email them this week to see if they'll ever breed her again.  Decalida Frenchies.

Lastly... Rebecca over at Ella's Lead is a terrible terrible enabler!  She is a make up and body product connoisseur..  and I am waiting for some scrumptious smelling body scrubs, spray in conditioner, and other stuffs..

We also got a month ago a matching set of collars.. but I don't have pics yet.  We are uber cute.  First time I've gone for something 'different'.  I got a bracelet that matches Cider's collar too, so when people mention collars and I don't have my pups, I can show them my bling ;)  I also got a wonderful leash from them, my first leather leash ever..  So here's borrowed pics from them for now to tide you all over.

The one one the left with diamonds is Cider's.  The one on top with squares is Smudge's.  The bracelet on the bottom is mine!  We've worn them about a month, been swimming lots.  The leather is darkening but looks fantastic, as always and the furkids go swimming daily now that it's hot as hell out.  New pics to come if I can get Kerri to take pics for me as her pics rock better than mine ;)  Cider has learned to swim all on her own this year, and life jacket free.  I'm super excited for her.  She goes into the pond on her own with little prompting.  If it is hot enough she gets in on her own, if not asking her to go swim she does it.  Considering my little girl acted like she was drowning most of her life, this is amazing.  I took her into the pool yesterday in her life jacket.  For the first time ever, no fighting no digging in claws.  She swam peacefully with me.  It was awesome.  I'm proud of her increased confidence.

Smudge's back as also been an interesting work in progress.  I picked up a supplement at the Greenhawk warehouse sale that is glucosamine and other things.  Both the furkids look chubby and have less muscle than ever.  So we set up a line of ten jumps as single stride bounces and have been running most of the dogs over them.  It's been only about 2 weeks, and they have more muscle, and Smudge's back appears straighter.  He's 2 months overdue for the chiro, as work and the end of school has been hectic.  I'd like them to evaluate him as I think he looks better, and he's more 'adventurous'.  He jumped into a really high truck last week no prompting.  Usually he would put paws on something and wait to be lifted.  My bed is also very high, and he jumped on it repeatedly last night.  Often he does it once.. and then 'asks'.  This is huge as we've been seeing a chiro every three weeks for years..  I love the chiro, but this seems to be a more permanent fix as opposed to the often maintenance.

Ooh it's been a while..

Horses.. Squee!!
What's new..

I graduated school.  Boo yeah.  Lord it was a 2 year uphill battle, and would suggest taking nursing if you want to go into medicine in some way..  The AEMCA is in a few weeks.. = terror.  Rideouts finally ended.  Thank the lord.  The grad ceremony is in a month.

All I want to do is chill and sleep.  I am still so damn tired.

I was told no third cocker spaniel.. so I sure did get a horse :)

And I ordered more Ella's lead collars.  Of course!

This is Panzer.  Thanks SR for renaming her.  She was Callie, and I liked it.. but it made me think of 'calla lily' and she is well... not delicate.   So Panzer is German for tank.  She is built like one.  A chunky monkey. 

This is Ivy frolicking with Panzer.  Panzer has gotten a little bit thinner since coming home.  Most active horse.. ever.

It's like May outside!!!

My weight is down to 156.5 pounds. Boo yeah!

I need 180 more rideout hours, and sadly it will take until super late April. Yay and boo...

My Brain collar is en route.. It should arrive this week!!!! And.. I'm taking my first plane trip by myself. I booked the tickets Monday night for May. It makes me want the end of school to come even faster.. as now I have something fun to go do after.

Sadly, no job prospects yet..

There is an uber duber cute puppy I'd love if he had the right personality.. 13-14 weeks old.. Waned for a show home, and I'm not sure if they'd think I dabble enough. Sadly I fear contacting if he's right or wrong for me.. as I'm not free to go see him till May.. Way way too long.

It's 18 degrees Celsius and sunny outside. My 6 hours of class was brutal. I wan to go sun myself and play with my pups.

Weight Loss

I hit an all time high of 180 pounds in December. My uniform pants were so tight I had to breath in and hold it to get them done up, it was horrible. I read up on Keto, and decided it could not hurt as nothing else I have done has really worked. I started January 6th, today I am down 13 pounds. I am almost back to where I was when I started the paramedic program. 2.5 more, and I'll be at least where I started'.

So.. this means I am insulin resistant as this is working so well.

Nine more weeks of school, I am not sure I can last that long as it's gotten pretty terrible. Hard to get up in the morning it's so bad at times for how we get treated..

Reading week cannot come fast enough...

Wow I got lost..

Exams were super stressful, but I passed! Semester four here I come!

This month I am trying keto as a way to drop some of the weight.. I have become the biggest I have been since 4th year university.

Seems the puppy of my dreams is not forthcoming.. The one I'd like puppies from may or may not have puppies ever, and has a waiting list of friends..

So I have a back-up breeder in mind. Here's hoping I'm ready late spring, early summer..

I bought an awful lot of agility runs, so here I am hoping that we have time to train..

At 200/450 hours for rideouts..
