On Vacation

Yes we are on vacation.  Without the dogs. Seems strange.  The last few years every time we went away it was somewhere that we could load up the pack and head out.  This time alas, it was and airplane ride to a wedding.  No dogs invited.

This is good and bad.  Good; I can stretch my legs out on the bed, I don’t have to get up at 5 am to let Louie G go out to pee, nobody cares if I sleep past 7, I don’t have to clean up poop, pee or vomit, nobody needs a bath.

Bad; it’s so lonely!  And I’ve only been gone 24 hours.   Luckily Woodstock is very dog friendly and everywhere we go we see dogs and meet new dogs.

We are lucky enough to have some great options for our dogs when we go away.  First of course is I have a great staff that will come over and look over them.  Second option is my brother who lives near by and has 3 dogs of his own and our guys all get along great.  Third, which came as a complete surprise was my parents offer to come and stay at our house.

Where Have I Been?

I have been gone a long time.  Why?  I love writing the blog.  So why so long away?  Busy, of course.  I always struggle with the life work balance.  I’m sure everyone who has their own business does.  I think if I hire more people I won’t have to work so much.  So I  bring  on more staff, then I take on more clients and I get busier.  It’s a problem most people would want and  I’m not complaining about that part, I just have to figure it out.

Another reason is that finally I moved forward with my canine massage  certification.  Since 2012 I have taken the intro class twice and then got busy and never followed through.  Well, this September I completed my 75 hours of classroom and by the end of March completed the 25 hours of internship.  Now I’m waiting to hear back on my portfolio to start offering this as a service.

I also took a Healing Touch for Animals class.  I was interested but not sure about this modality.  After completeing Level 1 I am on board and will continue studing Healing Touch for Animals.

I will be expanding on my new interests and how the dogs are so open and accepting to these two alternative healing experiences in future blog posts.
