    I am now 100% sure the dogs were getting poisoned by their food. :mad: Well, it hasn't been tested But I have been giving them chicken and then chicken with a bit of rice and poops are solid, they became more energetic and normal. Put a few pieces of kibble (very little) and immediate diarrhea and art starting vomiting becoming lethargic again.

    Switched their food to something I know they do well on (BBwilderness) and both dogs immediately got better poo's, and feeling much happier.

    I also reported it to the FDA.

    The reson this is in the good news thread is because I found the issue, got rid of the problem, and both dogs are SOOOOO much happier and so am I! ^_^

    I always love hearing stories about people in their younger days getting pulled over, my mom laughed at me the most out of everyone about it.

    My eyes got about as big as flying saucers when I saw the lights go on and honestly, I'm surprised I didn't start bawling... just had a few tears start to well up, haha. My little incident was the talk of the school today. :p

    I didn't realize that lights aren't automatic there like they are here.... so I'm pretty sure my whole first trip to Florida, and half of my second, I drove around without lights on. LOL thankfully I never got pulled over for it.

    On my way to Regina Saskatchewan for the Great Big Sea concert tomorrow night! I didn't think we were going to be able to go, but the girl who had surgery came back to work and the other night audit is covering my afternoon shifts!

    On a side note I am giving my notice to the hotel on Monday....if I have the balls too, I hate quitting.

    The trip to Florida was SO much fun, even if we were slap silly tired on the return trip today.

    I was also asked by a certain someone what my ring size was. To the words of, "Because if I asked you the week before, it wouldn't be much of a surprise." :D That, among with some other things he has said recently (including putting me on his checking account) has me very excited for future months. :D

    It depends on the car. My 2000 Chevy Impala has lights that come on automatically. A friend drives a 2000 Toyota somethin' and his lights don't come on automatically.

    I turned my force air dryer on today and...it seemed to be working? Mind you I have tried it EVERY SINGLE DAY, and it hasn't been working. Today it seemed to be. So, I think I'm going to hang onto it until AFTER the dog show, then if it's still have problems send it back. I don't understand why it would work all of a sudden now. If it was just overheated (from 10 minutes of use?) it ought to have worked again long ago. It's been nearly 2 weeks. But oh well.

    Also, I seem to no longer be timesick. Yay!

    Super busy yesterday, but we had success at our first pet expo day. A ton of people were in attendance for our agility show demonstration and a lot of people signed up for our free mini agility classes my company is offering at the super pet expo right now.

    Probably not a good idea that a newish collar company has their booth next to ours because when I was working at the expo yesterday I kept eyeballing their collars. The company is called Quickswitch Collars and they make base collars and you buy different covers for them that they make. Such a great idea for us collar addicts.

    I also had to add I seriously appreciate that my husband came out and helped set everything up for our booth and he put together our mini agility course. I know my boss was happy to have his help.

    I will be at the expo most of all day today so if any nova people want to come out. It's $13 at the door to get in. Tons and TONS of exhibitors.

    I'm so grateful to have dogs who will actually play with each other. They've done worn themselves and each other out in the backyard.

    Tipper has her face smashed into my leg and is snoring like a champ. She's too fricking adorable.

    My dogs are embarrassments. Bring them out in public and they steal tracheas and bully sticks and cookies and sniff everyone's crotch as they walk past. What makes this qualify as good news is that, I think I'd rather see this from Juno instead of the cowering mess she used to be. I think. :p

    I've had a hell of a month and a half. To say the very least. As much as I haven't gone into detail, it's clear that it's been hard.

    Tomorrow, my bosses are taking the entire staff of both stores here:

    http://www.lenordik.com/

    We're spending the morning and early afternoon doing some really awesome-sounding seminars on pet nutrition, and then we have the afternoon and evening to ourselves to spend soaking in Nordic baths.

    I cannot DESCRIBE how much I require this right now, what with everything going on. I love my job so much.
