Wow, it has been over a year since I have last blogged. That doesn't mean that nothing has happened for the past year, it just means I have been very neglectful about writing about anything. For various reasons, I stopped posting, then once I got out of the habit it was hard to get started again. I am going to try to blog on a more regular basis - hopefully I can get back into the swing of things.
Since I have a year of catch-up to do, I think I will start with what is going on right now, and then work my way back through the events of the past year.
Bosley and I reached some big goals this past summer and so now he is on a training vacation. We have been doing bits and pieces of obedience work, but for the most part we are just going on walks, cuddling on the couch and taking a well deserved break. At first it was odd not to be training daily and then it was kind of nice to just kick back and relax but for the past couple weeks Bosley has been letting me know that he is about done with break time. He is always looking for ways to engage me - which usually means that he will retrieve anything he can find (shoes, hats, toys, my pajamas) and bring the item to me in hopes of a game of play or a cookie. Mental breaks are good and hopefully he is just as enthusiastic when we get back into the full swing of training in the next couple weeks.
Since we accomplished a couple of our big goals, I now have some new goals in mind that should keep us busy for a while. I don't want to over-do my first blog post in a year, so I will write about those goals in another post. I also need to blog about the details of our recent accomplishments, but that will be for another day as well. Hey, I haven't blogged in a long time, so I need to stretch things out :)
