Morning All

Yay for full time Yums - hopefully the boys won't be toooooo awful........

(((((((Tubbs))))))))) hope all goes well today

Happy Big Smoking Dragon..........seems entirely appropriate

Oh DL - and to think you volunteered to spend time with teenagers..........you are a better woman than I am!!!

Great ad Sluggie - hope SB is proud of what he's achieved and we will be vibing for your pre-op but will try to be more successful in our vibing come the op than we were last time 

I would say poor GPO but he doesn't strike me as a pussy to be pitied too much   I suspect he has his life very well organised thank you very much and is quite capable of dealing with anyone who doesn't come up to his standard

Right - work. laters

Chuggy - have you tried giving the ball to the guest as they enter?

The idea is that Monty runs up to the guest, sees the ball, they tell him to sit and he gets the ball (obviously when he's sat!)................hence he is rewarded for good behaviour

The "prize" the guest gives has to be a high value prize to him which is only available to him from people who walk in the door

Over time he quickly learns that good behaviour gets him his ball.....it's similar to the technique the forces, customs etc use to train sniffer dogs and the like

The police are investigating the incident apparently and at least one of the boys was handed over to them by his parents...........not sure if it was one of ours or another from the gang........

However in my experience the police will want nothing to do with it and will hand it over to the RSPCA.........if you remember the greyhound kicked to death last year....police wouldn't act and RSPCA couldn't? didn't? wouldn't?......

Oh dear Noggy - if there's one thing worse than riding in winter weather it's having to do so having expected summer weather!!

Afternoon All

Sorry I'm late - another exam this morning plus results from Jan exams plus sitting in on coffee with 4 candidates for site attendant position and time spent with my poor mentee who when he swallowed his pride and went and asked the teacher for help was sent away with a flea in his ear and was told "I'm not going to help you....." This is the same teacher complaining that this lad is so far behind with his work..........

........seems to be a day for being embarrassed for your profession.......

((((Tubbs))))) but how lovely that mini Tubbs had such a perfect weekend

I too enjoy hearing about Monty's development and his blossoming now he knows he's safe in his forever home

Contrasts to 2 lads here who have been caught as part of a gang who were torturing a puppy..........absolute b*stards.......I don't know the details, I don't what to know the details........but I will have to face them come the summer to administer their exams as we are legally obliged to offer them this facility..........and it will take very ounce of my self control to keep myself in check..

Shame Pipette didn't get the job but to do as well as she did and to get positive feedback and some pointers is great credit to her

Good Lord, Podds, you sound like the lull at work (if there was one!) is definitely over. Hope tomorrow isn't really quite such a crack-of-dawn effort, you need some sleep too!

Unfortunately I have to be up at 6am every day currently, including weekends, as I am either on dog walking duty or training...........can't say it's fun but it's the price for combining FT work and IM training!!

Right off home now

Trying to juggle training with exams currently and I think tomorrow's 6.30am swim will have to turn into a 6am run to get me to work earlier.............grrrr  I'd far rather go to the pool !!!

Laters peeps

Beautiful day thanks Daffs - although what they call "a brisk wind" has made the course tougher than usual

5 hours of marshaling done in all and most runners as usual extremely grateful to us for doing it

Now sadly I have to do the work I should have been doing Friday afternoon when I was finishing the quiz off  

Later peeps and hope you're all having happy Sundays
