I'm super excited about what I got this year, because Wonder Woman icons! Two sets!

And then I got a wonderful ficlet from an AU where Boromir didn't die and how Aragorn's coronation then went. (movie verse, and very sweet).

AND THEN I got Murderbot fic! About Murderbot's favourite show getting cancelled, and Murderbot doing what any fan would do. It's a sweet and funny little follow up to All Systems Red and I'm so pleased with it.

I wrote three fic:

Sunday Tea on Mars
Babylon 5, post series, Catherine/Jeff/Michael/Lise, 1,800 words, Teen.
Lise knows she's been with Michael too long when a presumed-dead Minbari prophet at the breakfast table is the least of her worries.

My Dreams Under Your Feet
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, post movie, Leia/Poe, 2,100 words, Explicit.
Poe isn't sure he has it in him to give Leia everything she needs after the Battle of Starkiller Base, but he knows he's going to try.

In Your Arms Tonight
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, post movie, Finn/Poe, 1,100 words, Teen.
When Finn gets back, he's taking that wilderness survival training Poe keeps telling him about.

I spent a lot of time cleaning, editing, and rearranging the room once occupied by kittens. I hung a new pair of blinds in the windows that filter the fall light beautifully.  There's a soft new rug on the floor.  I made a little window seat and covered it with a comfy quilt and the girls have really enjoyed having this new vantage point that looks into the backyard and vegetable beds. The squirrels are working overtime right now so they've been offering lots of entertainment for Wylla and Charlene.

This room is a comfortable space and we've all been spending a lot of time inside of it.  It's very peaceful and serene.

We are all doing fine.

Of course, we were all very sad about all that happened, but we're moving away from that and now we're in the "well, what's next?" phase of processing.  And honestly, I don't know what's next.

When Panleuk enters your home, there is a mandatory one-year period of waiting before you can foster again.  Even after a thorough cleaning, the virus can live in porous surfaces for up to a year, so we're sidelined for now to prevent future litters from becoming infected.

But there's a very big part of me that's thinking we might be through with fostering. I'm not 100% sure, and not making up my mind about the future right this very moment, but this is where I am currently leaning.

And if that is the case, what will happen here on this blog?   I do want to continue something here, but I don't know what shape that will take yet.  I will figure that out. I know some might have ideas of what direction I should go, but I feel I need to find this on my own --  considering first how what I do impacts those closest to me first.


For now, I'll continue to share stories and photos here.  I am going to post less though -- without kittens, content isn't as plentiful.  I always struggle to fill five days when we're between litters or taking breaks. I would rather do fewer posts of quality than five posts of filler.


SO, that's where I'm at. Which really isn't any further along at all, but I'm not racing to make decisions right now. When a clear path appears, I'll start heading down it and a decent clip.


Thank you for your patience as I think things through.

And thank you again for all of your love and support -- the comments, sweet notes in the mail, emails, flowers, thoughtful gifts, and donations in memory of our precious Waddells.  We appreciate you so much and we love you.


I'll wrap things up today with a batch of photos of dear Wylla basking in the lovely fall light. She's been so happy spending time in the room. I hope you all can find as much peace in your day.

xoxo, Laurie

Posted by Tom "The Kittenmaster" Cooper

Please join me in remembrance for our Star Kit for today, Cleo. She was 16 years old from California.

Cleo

Miss Cleo died a few weeks ago. She was 16 and lived a long, full, loving life. She was the sweetest and most protective cat I’ve ever had. Such a sweetie pie. Very independent and yet very loving. One for the cuddles if she trusted you (and if she was tired :)). I remember when I was a kid that my brother and I would go on walks and she’d follow us to make sure we were OK and safe. Cleo was an indoor cat for a little while because we (my mom, my brother, and I) were afraid she’d get hit by a car. She managed to push out window screens in order to get out to the free world. She was a character. <3. She loved us all so much, especially my mom. She knew who took care of her. We all did, but my mom was special because she was a mama to the kitty mama of the house. Cleo always came running when she heard the sound of our car pulling up to the house. She had a little bell on her collar so we could always hear her coming. I loved and still love her.

Dear Captain,

A few months ago, I met a cute new person and we clicked pretty well from the start. We both had another primary partner at the time and we often talked about those relationships as well as (of course) many other things. After a while, he and his primary broke up, and he was pretty devastated by it. I didn’t mind that he was a bit more “down” when we spent time together, and it seemed only natural to me that he talked about his break-up feelings sometimes. I still don’t mind those things.

Now here comes the difficult part: I feel like this relationship is getting more and more asymmetrical. I’m busy with a demanding job and an active social life (and I like it that way), and he has a lot of time on his hands. He has made it clear that he’d prefer to spend much more time together than we currently do (including weekend trips and the like), while from my perspective we’re close to “too much”. He is way ahead of me with things like “I love you” (WAY too early for me!). I feel like I have to be “on” at all times when we’re together, because he always seems worried that I’m not being enthusiastic enough and something must be wrong and don’t you like me anymore?

He’s had a bunch of personal issues come up lately, and he’s generally pretty unhappy right now. I find it really hard to find a balance between being kind to a person I like, and setting some “don’t make me responsible for your happiness!”-boundaries. I understand anxiety and sadness and insecurity, because I deal with plenty of that in my own life, but it feels like he’s subconsciously weaponizing these things to demand my time and attention. He often says things like:

  • “you’re the only good thing in my life right now”
  • “I feel like everyone is rejecting/leaving me lately”
  • “I’m not doing so well,
    Please view this post in your web browser to complete the quiz.
    , can I come by tonight? I need comfort”
  • “I’m dealing with so much shit that I can’t carry it on my own”
  • “You give me so much strength when we spend time together”

I really like this guy! We have a lot in common and we’ve had fun times together. I would love to see him once or twice a month for many moons to come, and for us to grow closer over time, but right now I feel like I’m under siege and I have to focus on setting boundaries and finding new ways to say “no” all the time and it’s starting to suck the joy out of what (I hope) could be a genuinely fun and rewarding relationship – through good times and bad.

Can I salvage this? How can I communicate with him in a way that does NOT say “I can’t handle people who have negative emotions ever”, but rather “it feels like you’re using your emotions against me and that’s not cool”?

Thank you!

You’re absolutely right to see a litany of “you’re the only good thing in my life” and “everyone else is rejecting me (so you won’t, won’t you?)” statements as being red flags of codependence. I’m not sure the end result of my advice is “fun new relationship is salvaged!” but I think you do have a good opening here to have an honest talk with him about getting help in handling hard life stuff and the reciprocity & seriousness of your relationship.

There are two separate conversations to be had here. I’m not sure in which order, so, use your judgment.

Conversation #1:

[Partner], I can see that you’re really suffering right now as you [grieve the loss of primary relationship][handle this recent raft of difficult life stuff]. I’m feeling overwhelmed by it all and I think it’s time to find some more support for this stuff. Maybe a trained sounding board – like a therapist or counselor – can help you process all of this.

There is a 99.99% chance he will feel insulted and hurt that you are fobbing him off on other people instead of investing deeply in his emotional well-being yourself. Get ready for some intenso responses involving “You are tired of me and you are going to reject me like everyone else” + 1,000 reasons that therapy/counseling is impossible/useless/too hard for him. This is because:

  • He is primed to feel rejected right now. Everything that isn’t “I love you come over right now and let me comfort you my dear boy” = rejection.
  • You are sending him to other people instead of wanting to deal with it yourself. (That’s okay! Just, acknowledge the truth of that so you don’t fall for the negging when it comes).
  • Mental health system is imperfect and it does take a lot of resources and energy to find a good fit and treatment that can work for you. It’s a hard thing to do when you’re feeling great, never mind when you’re feeling terrible. It’s okay to acknowledge the imperfections in the mental health system and also remind yourself that those difficulties don’t automatically make his emotional well-being your sole problem to deal with on demand in real time.

Follow-up script:

I know this sucks and that’s not what you wanted to hear. You’re right, I am telling you that you need to find other people besides me to lean on, and you’re right, the mental health system can be really difficult/annoying/expensive. But I am not comfortable or prepared to continue being your main sounding board about this stuff. I think your problems are real and serious and that taking them seriously might involve bringing in a trained listening person for a little while. Think of it as giving yourself the gift of a safe space to unload and process all of this that’s 100% focused on you, a little time in your week where you have permission to feel as sad and lost as you need to feel and get all the feelings out so you can start to heal and deal with them.

Get ready for a question like “So I guess I’m not allowed to talk about serious stuff or feelings with you anymore?” (It’s 99.99% coming)

Your script: “That’s not what I’m saying, but I am saying that I don’t want the time we spend together to be all about [Serious Feelings Stuff and Comfort]. I am asking you to find and take advantage of some alternate avenues for support and comfort, so things with us can be a little more balanced than they have been.

Chances are he will not like it. He likes his comfort to come with a side of romance/sexytimes and whyyyyy should he make an effort to find a therapist when he has youuuu? But you’re doing a kind thing by being honest about your limits and directing him toward something that actually has a chance of making him feel better.

Conversation #2 

Sometimes the answer to “I had a terrible day, can I come over and be comforted” is simply “Sorry, not tonight.” And then you put your phone away and focus on what you originally planned to do and he finds a way to self-soothe somehow. If he deals with that well, then maybe it can get better.

That doesn’t mean there is no big conversation to be had. He wants to say “I love you” and plan weekends away and remind you that you’re the only great thing in his life and it’s making you feel crowded and overwhelmed. Time to talk about that. Maybe time to also talk honestly about the way you do polyamory, like the fact that you have someone in your life that you consider to be a primary partner and that there is a hierarchy there maybe not of feelings but in terms of how you allocate time/vacation days/long-term relationship planning, etc. It seems like your relationship really worked when he had that in place too but now things have become unbalanced. This conversation might mean that y’all create something new together over time or it might mean that he and you find out that are unsuited to each other.

The thing where he wants you to be “on” and show that you are sufficiently enthusiastic seems to be the best entry point for this conversation, as in, the next time he makes you you feel that way it’s time to talk about what’s up: “Listen, I like you a lot, and I like you enough that I can make space for you to be sad and grieving right now but that also means that you make space for me being tired or having an off night or for not exactly mirroring your enthusiasm back to you. For example, we’ve only known each other a short time and I’m not ready for ‘I love you’ yet. I would love to get there someday but I need more time. When you say ‘I’m the only good thing in your life’ I know you mean it as a compliment but it feels like pressure. Also time we spend together is already about the maximum time I have to spend with you in a given week. Like of course it would be nice to spend ‘more time’ together, but I can’t do that without breaking other commitments that are pleasurable and important to me. I need you to understand that and focus on enjoying the time we do spend together.

Then, say the thing that’s the elephant in the room: “I feel like you want me to take the place of [Former Primary Partner] in your life, and that’s an okay thing for you to want on an emotional level, I get it, but it’s too much/not the right fit for me/not what I signed up for/making things unbalanced between us. I care about you a lot and I want to find a way to keep this going, so, how do we build something that is enjoyable and true and emotionally supportive without me feeling so pressured and you feeling so rejected?

He’s not going to like hearing this because it’s going to feed into the story he is telling himself about how everyone rejects him. Also there maybe is no balance between “Ideally we’d hang out once or twice a month, forever” and “LOVE ME!!!!!” But if you can’t talk honestly about this stuff and you keep feeling suffocated and overwhelmed, the thing is not going to work. “I’m at the limit of what I have to give you in terms of time and affection” isn’t what any romantic partner really wants to hear, but it’s important information if it’s the truth. The truth can hurt but it can also help us make good decisions about how to take care of ourselves. He may decide that what you have to offer is not enough for him. You may decide that what he wants is just not compatible with what you want and need. That would be painful, but I have to think that it’s better than letting him continue to build this fortress of need around you while you’re looking for the escape hatch.

Reminder for commenters: Spell out the whole word “polyamory” please.

This is the section of mostly miscellany lol.
We went on an adventure through Blackwood River National Park
never actually seeing the river.
Stopped by the farm properly we always admire on Caves Rd,
because it's just somehow very beautiful to us.
There was a tiny welcome swallow
about the size of my little finger,
where we were staying.
So there's photos of him too.


Prevelly - we went here between storms, and ate sushi, while watching the very choppy surf. We watched two women with their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels go to take the spaniels for a walk on the green, and the spaniels quickly looked very unimpressed to be in such a windy, salty, spray-filled place.

The White Goshawk is the white morph of the Grey Goshawk.
It is not an albino.
It is the only regularly naturally occurring entirely white bird of prey in the world.

I truly am grateful to you for all your kind remarks.

Come a Stranger is the most positive book in the Tillerman Cycle (which, in a series that takes on abandonment, death, failure, racism, and emotional abuse of a couple different kinds, is maybe not saying a whole lot, although the themes of all the books involve growth and compassion and optimism and healing so that I never really noticed until this read-through how relentless they are) — this is the book about a family that works from the very beginning, and with themes that involve an existing strength, and growth mediated by that strength (as opposed to, say, Dicey's Song and Solitary Blue, which are about fractured family that has to figure out how to work, and growth from what started as dysfunctionality).

This one, I think there are two major themes woven throughout the book. One is community: what does it mean to be part of a community? This is almost a background theme — if I were to tell you the major events that happened in the book, none of them would really shout out "Community!" And yet the strong, vibrant community Mina belongs to is so integral to this book that it wouldn't exist in the same way without it. The other books are about individuals; this one is about the individuals as part of a community where they all help one another, all lift one another up. There's no character like Miz Hunter in any of the other Tillerman books.

I mean, I've never read these books thematically before, and on this reading it jumped out to me that the first chapter is basically the thesis statement. In the first chapter we meet Miz Hunter, Kat, Kat's family, and the church where Mina sings in the choir. That's a lot of people that Mina is a part of — not just her family itself, though they're also a community unto themselves, but also friends, friends' families, a whole church community evoked — and a community that takes care of each other. The first chapter almost makes it explicit:

"People you don't know are strangers."
"Are you afraid of strangers?"
"There aren't any strangers I've noticed around here, are there?"
"No ma'am. My poppa, he doesn't let people stay strangers."

And —

Poppa's little church didn't have a fancy altar, just a heavy wooden table with a fresh cloth on iton which the ladies had embroidered words and pictures. A silver cross stood up on top of that. They didn't have proper choir stalls, nor pews, except for half a doen somebody had picked up at a flea market sale in Cambridge… What happened was, whenever they were having a drive, saving up money for something particular, like more pews so the whole room could be filled with them and not be part pews and mostly folding chairs, something always came up. There would always be some family that needed the help, or some one person in some kind of need. The deacons would empty the church pockets to help out. Like Miz Hunter, when the church took a mortgage on the little house she lived in and rented it to her for what she could afford. Nobody minded that, and nobody seemed to miss the fancy touches.


Which brings me to the other major theme of this book: love.

This book is a little bit the counterpoint of Solitary Blue, which was about finding a community one by one (and so is Dicey's Song, for that matter), and about the damage that love does, both knowingly and unknowingly, and how to get beyond that damage. This book is about the next step: the responsibilities to one another in a community; and the positive side of love, how love shows us the way to our truest selves; and how those things interact. Mina loves Tamer Shipp, and that love shows itself in no destructive way, but constructively, in the way she helps Tamer's wife, and in the way that she finds Samuel Tillerman for him as a gift — but the real, true gift is the interaction between Gram and Tamer — it's not about Shipp himself, really. I don't know, I don't think I am making a whole lot of sense here; I just feel really strongly about this, okay? :)

But there's a minor theme (though more explicit) too, a theme of race and racism — and it's so interesting and awesome what Voigt did here: Runner was all about what it looked like from Bullet's white, racist point of view, and that was a valuable discussion and viewpoint; well, here we see what it looks like from the other side. And I feel like Voigt just does it well — Mina thinking black everything is kind of lame, to the betrayal when Mina realizes how she's been set up as the token black at ballet camp (and, tangentially, she gets it so right how you can bounce around and then find the place where you belong — in my case also summer camp — and the relief and amazingness of it — and I didn't think about it until this time through, but just thinking about that memory being sullied by betrayal of some sort is just — my whole mind flinches from it), the swinging to considering racism in everything, including her of-course-I'm-not-racist-but-I-don't-like-uppity-blacks teacher and also Dicey's reaction to her which is clearly (from Dicey's perspective in Song) not race-related at all (that being said, when you look at it from Mina's point of view it looks pretty damning for Dicey for a while — I mean, what are you supposed to think when a person keeps ignoring your friendship overtures?). The conversations she has with Shipp and with her parents seem to get it right to me… the way her parents are just worried for her because it's hard to be a black woman. And I love the part where Shipp tells Mina that "colored" is a good word for what they are. ("They," in the end, meaning all humans.) Because, of course, it's the word Bullet used and Tamer rejected. And I side-eyed the part at ballet camp where Mina is cast as Tash, and then was surprised and pleased to find that (of course) Voigt was right there with us side-eyeing it too, with Kat calling it out explicitly.

I don't understand at all how Voigt is able to interweave all these themes among all the books and still find time to have things actually happen. I don't get it at all.

It's so interesting to me that the Tamer Shipp of this book is noticeably an older version of Tamer Shipp in Runner. That is to say, he's not at all identical, he's clearly been through a lot and learned a lot and matured a lot (and changed his mind about some things, like the word "colored"), but still you can see the Tamer-who-was in him.

More quotes. This one is on the community theme:


Charlie and Isadora started telling stories about old relatives of their parents who had gone into nursing homes, or retired to places where there were a lot of old people gathered together. Mina didn't say anything, because her one living set of grandparents lived with her mother's brother in Georgia, and the grandparents who had died when she was still a baby had lived just around the corner. She thought of Miz Hunter, but didn't mention her either.


I really like the treatment of Mina's friend Kat, though I wouldn't have appreciated it when I was a kid (good thing I didn't read these books until I was an adult) -- I like that she's presented as not liking Narnia, and that's OK!

"And trying to make me different too, make me read books and listen to your music. And they're boring and dumb — the Narnia books. It's just pretend, fairy-tale stuff, with magic, and if I don't like them, you look at me as if I'm stupid. I'm not stupid."


I could go on and on about this book, but I think I'm going to post it since it's already taken forever for me to get this far.

Oh, okay, one more thing: I have never liked what we're told about Tamer's sermon on Miss LaValle's suicide attempt -- it has always struck me as rather victim-blamey. But on the other hand we're seeing all this filtered through Mina's eyes, and she doesn't know about the suicide at the time; afterwards Mina's mom says she thinks the sermon was about helping Miss LaValle even though she isn't part of their church, and not gossiping about it, which is not at all what I got from Mina's POV, so it is very possible this is a case of incomplete-POV rather than being as victim-blamey as it seems.

No, two more things. This time around I kinda shipped Mina and Tamer's son Samuel, not right then of course, but sometime far in the future when they've both grown up — it seems like Samuel has inherited his father's propensity for thinking about things, and I could totally see Mina and Samuel, as grownups, understanding each other in the same way that Tamer and Mina do, but without the barriers to a romantic relationship. Speaking of fic ideas :) (Would that be weird? I feel like the way Voigt has structured it, it wouldn't be weird.)

The Violet Venture: 45 Weeks (Recommendations)

Monday, September 25th, 2017 03:12 am
[syndicated profile] dogseyeview_feed

Posted by L-Squared

Violet is 45 weeks old today and remains at a weight of 28 pounds, a girth of about 21.5 inches; and a height of roughly 20 inches at the shoulder.

A blue-eyed, white, gray, and black speckled Border Collie puppy next to a plastic purple box for size comparison.

This week was a busy one. Monday and Tuesday were spent working hard to keep Violet entertained as she eagerly waited to have her spay sutures removed so she could get back to going on big training adventures. Wednesday we walked out to the vet’s office for suture removal and Violet got a great report from the Vet. Thursday and Friday we did a lot of training around our neighborhood to get Violet back into the swing of things after taking it easy for 2 weeks. Saturday was a BIG day for Violet. In addition to it being my birthday, it was also the day of our town’s autumn festival which includes a parade, book sale, antique car show, entertainment acts, craft and food vendors, a street dance, and much, much more. Violet did a mostly wonderful job training in all the chaos of people, dogs, noises, and obstacles. She also went on a birthday shopping trip in the afternoon, and to a birthday picnic dinner in the evening. Today, among other things, she again went shopping with me to get groceries, and again did a nice job in the crowded store.

Photos from Monday of Violet walking around our neighborhhod, playing and training at home.

As I have said before here many times, I am by no means an expert dog trainer. Violet is my first attempt at owner training a service dog, though I have worked with guide dogs for over 15 years, and have had (and attempted to train) pet dogs all my life. However, throughout the last 8 and a half months that I’ve been working with Violet, I have gotten A LOT of questions both online and in real life from people wanting to know this or that dog-related thing. So, since I’ve been too busy this week to sit down and write on the topic I had planned for today, I’m going to pull some notes from a Facebook chat I had with Kerris’s raiser on Friday and share some of my dog-related recommendations here.

Tuesday photos from training outside, walking in the evening while enjoying a gorgeous sunset, modeling her Halloween costume which is still in progress, and playtime in our yard.

In my small town, where the only available obedience class is still taught using traditional dog training methods (with a slip collar and leash corrections), I do get a fair amount of questions about positive based, force-free dog training. A lot of people are initially simply curious about that little purple button-thing they see me carrying and clicking when out training Violet; what its purpose is; and if it’s more of a nuisance to use than just my voice.

I do usually find myself using a verbal “Yes” marker with Violet (especially since attending our obedience class in a semi-nearby town last spring with a trainer who preferred using voice markers to clickers). However, I do primarily click to mark the desired behavior when teaching Violet brand new cues. You can absolutely use a verbal marker instead of a clicker though. Some people argue that verbal markers are less effective, for several reasons, including that most people can click faster and more precisely than they can speak a verbal marker, and the click is a much more unique sound that – unlike “Yes” or “Nice” or “Good” or whatever you use for a verbal marker – you will likely never make in non-training situations like conversations within earshot of your dog. But verbal markers do work when the dog is conditioned to this response from you (Yes = treat reward). Proponents of only verbal markers like to note that you, theoretically, always have your voice with you, whereas you have to remember to bring along the clicker. Also, many trainers (including myself) continue to use a verbal marker long after phasing out the click. So, it’s really up to you.

For those who tell me they do want to use a clicker though, I highly recommend getting an iClick clicker rather than the older box-style clickers. iClicks may be slightly more expensive, but they are way less loud/obnoxious. As a result, they don’t need to be muffled with poster tack, putty, tape, etc. before use. Plus, in my opinion, iClicks are both easier to hold onto and to press down on for the click than box clickers (especially for people with more limited dexterity).

Wednesday photos playing at home, visiting the vet, walking around town, visiting my parents’ house, visiting my sister’s dog, and playing with Jack.

There are tons of great resources on clicker training out there for those who are interested in learning more, but the book I recommend most often – especially to people who have started out with “traditional“ negative-reinforcement based training methods – is Pat Miller‘s “The Power of Positive Dog Training“. I really can’t tell you how much I love this book! Her training plan in later chapters may not be useful to you if your dog has already mastered basic obedience via traditional training methods, but the information – especially in the first part of the book – may still be as interesting and enlightening to you as it was to me.

Also, Patricia McConnell‘s “The Other End of The Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs“ is a FANTASTIC book about force-free dog training in general (even though she’s not such a fan of people owning Border Collies who don’t also own sheep for them to herd). I have read this book twice this year alone, and with each reading I have absorbed more useful information.

Thursday training photos from around the neighborhhod, as well as playing at home.

For those who are crossing over to clicker training and thus haven’t done any positive reward/marker based work with their dog before, I recommend starting out training the dog to do a totally new task or trick. I always suggest picking something fun/silly! Once the dog catches on to what the clicker means, then you can go back to polish up previously trained obedience cues, if needed, or go on to teach whatever else you want. But starting with something especially fun, will really help both of you to embrace this new way of training/learning.

The 101 Things to Do with a Box game, which I’m pretty sure I have written about before, is a great way to introduce a dog to the clicker. Karen Pryor talks about it in her book “Getting Started: Clicker Training for Dogs“. Or maybe it’s in “Don’t Shoot the Dog“. I can’t remember; it’s been too long since I read all her books. Any of them will give you a great overview of clicker training, the science behind it, and ideas for the millions of things you can train a dog to do with it. One thing I recommend regarding her books though, if you’re short on cash and don’t want to buy them, just search the web. On her site, clickertraining.com, she has many of the most useful parts of her books republished as blog posts and/or videos available to view for free.

Karen Pryor sells iClick style clickers on her site too, if you can’t find them elsewhere. DISCLAIMER: I benefit in absolutely no way from this recommendation (or any others in this post, for that matter). I’m just saying… this used to be the only place I could find them (especially in purple!) – although the last several years I have seen some colors of iClicks on Amazon and have heard they are now carried by at least one of the big name pet stores.

Friday photos training around obstacles, checking out all sorts of things including barricades, port-a-potties and more sitting around our neighborhood in preparation for the autumn festival, as well as playing at home.

Another book I often recommend is Leslie McDevitt’s “Control Unleashed”. This is a title I’ll throw out there to anyone who asks me about their easily overstimulated, always distracted, nervous/anxious, or reactive dog – like MANY Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, and other herding breeds we encounter while out training. However, even if your dog doesn’t have these issues, the training exercises explained in this book will probably still be very useful to you. I think they are all excellent for service dog prospects.

For those who just want to teach their dogs some of the fun tricks they’ve seen Violet (and big brother Jack) doing, I recommend checking out Emily Larlham’s training videos. She is Dogmantics Dog Training on Facebook or Kikopup on YouTube, and she is an INCREDIBLE clicker trainer! She has made tons of videos over the years on everything from basic obedience and manners, to behavioral issues, to super advanced tricks.

The book “101 dog tricks“ by Kyra Sundance is another resource for fun trick ideas and steps to teach them. My only issue with her instructions, as noted in my review a couple of years ago when I first read this book, is that she uses an awful lot of force to achieve the positions and behaviors she wants rather than utilizing the three basic force-free teaching techniques: luring, shaping, and capturing. However, I’m sure you can find most, if not all, of these same tricks in Emily‘s Kikopup YouTube videos, so I typically recommend checking out her channel first for trick ideas. She and her dogs do some truly impressive work!

Saturday photos from watching the parade, walking around through the crowds downtown, shopping, and visiting my sister’s dog.

Some people come up to me asking about behavioral issues. I am even less of an animal behaviorist than I am a trainer, but I have read a fair amount on the subject over the years, because it really interests me. So, I try to help when I can. Just yesterday, a woman came up to me on the street at the autumn festival (while I was attempting to do the polite idle chit-chat thing with our former state representative who ALWAYS talks to me whenever she sees me). The lady thankfully saved me by interrupting us to ask me how to get her dog to stop chewing on everything in her house. I myself have so far never really had this problem, so I told her what all the problem-solving books I’ve read (Including Teoti Anderson’s “The Dog Behavior Problem Solver”) say to do about this one. And that is… find something else for them to do. Most commonly a dog that is chewing everything is bored, so you need to give them more to do. If a dog is bored, they’re going to find ways to entertain themselves. The activities they typically choose are barking, digging, or chewing, none of which you are probably going to want them to do. So, you have to help them make a better choice, by teaching them what is and isn’t appropriate to chew on, but also – and perhaps more importantly – by giving them plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation. The woman’s half-joking reply was that she’s too old to keep up with her dog (to give him more exercise). Everyone within earshot chuckled in commiseration at that reply, but I REALLY had to restrain myself from rolling my eyes at this excuse. There are plenty of ways to entertain a dog that don’t require a whole lot of physical effort on your part: fetch, tug, flirt pole, training games like those I wrote about last week, swimming, obstacle courses, trick training, tread mill running, and even – as someone else in our group mentioned, puzzle toys.

I do have to say more on that last suggestion though…. As I told Kerris’s raiser earlier this week, I don’t generally recommend people invest a whole lot of money on puzzle toys, because they’re great…until the dog figures them out. Jack still enjoys his Kong wobbler even though he figured out how to unscrew the lid to get to the food the first or second time he played with it. Slo Bowls, snuffle mats and the towel game are also fun, unless you have a smartypants little dog who realizes she can just pick up the mat, towel, or bowl and shake it (or flip it over) to get all the snacks out instead of having to nose around through the fabric or maze for them. Also, there are some toys on the market, like the OurPets IQ Treat Ball, that you can make slightly more challenging, by changing hole sizes and such, which might occupy some dogs for a little while longer. But most puzzle/treat dispensing toys aren’t tough enough to withstand a dog that is determined to get to the prizes hiding inside even if they can’t figure out the way they are supposed to do it (I’m looking at you PetSafe Busy Buddy Tug-a-Jug and Kibble Nibble toys – 2 more that Jack completely disassembled within seconds). Thus, most of the puzzles and treat dispensing toys I’ve bought for my dogs haven’t really been worth the money, because the dogs figure them out so fast. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I tell people that if their dog is anything like either of mine, they shouldn’t be surprised if the puzzle toy isn’t a challenge after the dog’s first try.

Sunday`photos from our trip to the grocery store, playing in our backyard, and during our little birthday cake party tonight.

Sorry, it’s time for me to enjoy some homemade molten lava birthday cake with my family now, so no time to add links. But if you are interested, you can and should look up the things I mentioned in this post. Happy training!

The Element of Fire (Ile-Rien, #1) - Martha Wells ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Reread. I think I first read this sometime in 2010.

This is a secondary-world fantasy set in the approximate equivalent of 17th Century France only with both sorcery and Fae creatures.read more )

Point of Dreams (Astreiant, #2) - Melissa Scott & Lisa A. Barnett ★ ★ ★ ★

In some ways the murders are the least interesting part of this book. They matter, and they drive the plot, but it's the thematic stuff going on around and in cause of the murders that I found most interesting.

This is a book about relationships, and the ways they are seen and controlled by society and societal pressures. read more )

Seven Summer Nights - Harper Fox ★ ★ ★ ★

This was not the book I expected it to be, but I quite enjoyed the book it turned out to be.

This is, as the cover copy stated, a just-post-WWII historical romance between an archaeologist and a vicar, both of whom came back from the war changed. It's about two men trying to fit back into roles and ways of life they no longer fit. read more )

Bound to Be a Groom (Regency Reimagined, #1) - Megan Mulry

DNF.

It's queer, kinky, poly, historical erotica. I'm pretty much THE target audience for this book. And I gave up at 13% read. read more )

Death by Silver (Julian Lynes and Ned Mathey, #1) - Melissa Scott & Amy Griswold ★ ★ ★ ★

This was a rougher read than I expected from the ad copy. Good, but at times decidedly difficult.

This is a queer, steampunk murder mystery, but that's not really what it's about.

What it actually is is a book about institutionally-sanctioned bullying and abuse and the different ways in which adult survivors of childhood trauma cope with their past. read more )
