Splish Splash I Was Taking A Bath...

The last time I took my dogs to the groomers, Scout refused to get into the bath.  Well, he's going to have to go back in a few months when the weather gets warmer to get shaved and I thought we should practice getting in the bath tub here.  I've sorta done a sneaky thing and call the bath tub an obstacle like in agility.  So when I tell them "over" he just jumps right in now (along with Roxie).  From the looks of that picture you'd never think he hates baths!  Maybe this will calm him down a bit the next time we visit the groomers.  I feel bad for the lady who has to bathe him, I'm sure he's a handful! 

We also had agility class tonight, which went really well!  Roxie tried to teeter again,  but wasn't as fearless as on Sunday, so we'll take it slow.  Scout is a weave machine - he's sooo fast!   I also looked into herding for Scout, so that maybe one of our next adventures.  Can you picture it - me, Scout, and sheep?!??!  Anyway.... enough about the pups for tonight. 

The Oscars are coming up on Sunday - are you going to watch? have some favorites?  Take my Oscar poll and let's see if we can predict the big winner!  I always like trying to predict the winners - some years are better than others, especially if I've seen some of the nominated movies.  This year I did get to see Benjamin Button, Doubt, and Slumdog Millionaire.  All of them were really good - though I think Slumdog Millionaire was my favorite out of those three.  If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!

So, I've been pondering writing the Garmin company about my GPS and it's map.  It gets me most anywhere about 99% of the time correctly, though the one place it constantly gets wrong is my place of work.  Yes, I know how to get to my job without my machine, but sometimes it's just on and I think it's fun to play with so I let it drive me places!!  It always tells me my school is on the wrong side of the street and about 1 block up... HMMMM!!!  I'm not sure what the process of telling Garmin about this would be, but it's bugging me enough that I might just do something about it - I'll keep you posted! 

We went over to my friend Laura's house for lunch (as usual on Wed) and she was kind enough to share her Valentine's Day Edible Arrangement with me and the others.  Those things are so darn cute and yummy!  Tomorrow is Subway day for speech lunch!!  Ohhhh and the 5 dollar any sub is back!!!!  Sweet onion chicken teryaki here I come!
