TMT: About me

Friends, we missed last week because there was an accident at the farm where Lad was born and my scribe got kind of caught up in it - one person broke a leg being thrown from a horse, but everyone is recovering now, Thank DoG.  Anyway, I couldn't really blame my scribe for being preoccupied and then of course she had to catch up on the work she hadn't done that day....Here we are today, though.

1. What movie do you love but are too embarrassed to admit you love it?

I know the truth is that pigs can't do that--but I still get all teary eyed watching that little pig work so hard.  "That'll do, Pig."

2. Ann wants to know: How far do you drive/travel to attend trials, clinics, lessons? How far is too far?

We travel lots of distances.  I don't travel with the scribes and trial dogs much because of my important work keeping Renzo company and kissing the nice lady who comes to let us out.  The people travel about an hour to go to lessons a couple of times a week.  They've traveled about 8 hours for clinics, trials, etc. 

Once one of the trial dogs convinces them to move into Open, they might travel a little further.  We don't have a rolling house yet so it's kind of a hubbub getting us all into a hotel room.  

My scribe, Hamish and Kyzer traveled 3600 miles to visit the Mean Man from Alberta last fall.  They stayed there for a while and had lots of adventures. They learned some things, too.  Including about mountain snowstorms.  And praire snowstorms.  And snowstorms caused by lake effect snow.  (It might have been just a tad late in the year for that kind of travel.  But, the scribe didn't consult me)

3. What is your theme song (circa Ally McBeal)?

"You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes, you will
That you're beautiful as you feel"

--Carol King

"I'm a Bitch; I'm a Lover
I'm a child; I'm a Mother
I'm a sinner; I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell; I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
you know you wouldn't want it any other way"

--Meredith Brooks  (But, I'm most certainly not a "Mother")

4. Laura S wants to know: If you had to choose a new dog activity, one that you had never done before, what would you choose? 

I think I would look smashing at a Canine Freestyle Dance competition

5. What would your dog choose (or scribe, if you're Pippin--hey, that's me!!)?

My scribe thinks it would be kind of neat to learn to send a terrier to ground (we don't know how to tell her that Renzo is the only terrier who will ever live at our house)

Pippin, I do want a video of the canine freestyle dance!! I'm sure it will be a classic!!

Dear Pippin,

That awesome song is by Meredith Brooks, not Alannis! Which does not, in any way, diminish its awesomeness.

3600 miles to see MMfA? Rex feels that is a very long way to go to spoke to so sternly.

And yeah, all the cool kids want to go to ground. :-)

HI Kristi--I told my scribe that Alannis didn't sing that song, but she felt certain she'd heard an Alannis version in the past and so actually decided not to attribute it to Meredith Brooks. I just made her look to find an Alannis version and since she couldn't (d'uh), I made her change it so that I'm not left looking like a doofus. Glad you pointed it out-takes a village, sometimes! (p.s. The MMfA spoke sweetly to me the time I saw him, but it's perhaps noteworthy that I only saw him once.....)

Ok, so I totally thought it was Alannis, too. :) Either way - awesome theme song!!

Linc would like to join in the freestyle thing, kthx!

I don't blame the scribe at all for getting caught up in the broken leg situation. That is NEVER a good thing (a broken leg, that is).
