Training End…

Tonight I would usually take Mazikeen out to training classes, I decided I did not want to go, although guilt slipped in for a moment.  Lately, in the class, I think Mazikeen is bored too as the last few weeks she has starts playing up and ignores instructions.  She is great during the day and I feel the evening class is too late for her finishing at 9:30 pm, her attention is zapped and so is mine after a day of number crunching.  M and I talked about the training as Mazikeen is not learning anything extra at the moment, we just seem to repeat the same things over and over each week.  Some of the other dogs don’t catch on and struggle, but Mazikeen is hyper-intelligent and usually only a few repeats of something and she has it.

She is 10 months now and definitely is Daddies little girl.  Oh, I am Daddy and M is Dad.  She follows me about and likes to sit in my lap, so thank the lord she is small, as when Harper decides she wants to do the same I am crushed under 22kg of fidgety dog.  If I have a treat in my hand I can get her to do anything I want, even today whilst out in the forest off lead she never strayed too far, and when I called her, knowing I may have treats she came back.  This does not work for Harper who has her own agenda whilst out, so never gets off the lead unless we are in one of the small fields by the house.

We finally came to the conclusion that the training classes were not working for us and any training we do will be done from home the way we have successfully trained all our other dogs.  This was never going to be a permanent thing, and I did like the idea of doing agility, but Mazikeen has a busy and fulfilling life without adding competitions and constant training to her schedule.  For an English Springer, she is only small, and I think all the work will take its toll on her.  Even though she was first born she was the smallest of the litter and all her brothers and sisters are massive in comparison, so I have to take that into consideration.  The vet told us the other month that her ovaries are not fully developed and that will be down to her being small, hence not having her first season yet.

I think we have made the right decision for her and any training will be a lot more fun now rather than sitting about waiting for her turn in class.

Klytus, I’m bored…

It’s not just Emperor Ming, I am too.  I have no idea why and what is going on in my head, but I just have that “cannot be arsed” feeling and nothing, nothing seems to take it away.  I think it’s boredom setting in and it’s dragging me down a little.  I can not settle into doing anything and as soon as I start something BANG! Bored again.

The heat is not helping either, and I think it is driving my boredom to the next level, hence not being able to settle.  I am part way through about 15 books and can’t get myself to finish any of them.  I picked up a hat I was knitting and put it down again.  Thought to look at some of the courses I want to do and instantly closed the screen with a sigh.  M suggested a few films to watch and I was very “whatever”.

This morning I did not want to get out of bed, not for any other reason than “the same shit, different day” theory.  I was not wrong.  Took the dogs for a walk in the forest, cooked liver and other things for them, pottered about the garden and some cleaning and watched a bit of TV.

I know I am having a moan and will forgive you all for rolling your eyes at me, but I am sure that my brain will have a soft restart and services will be back to normal.  I hope it will be like Apples OS High Sierra’s update and I wake up with a new a more dynamic get up and go.
