    I want a BRZ but don't really want to get rid of the S4 or the GTI. The GTI doesn't run right now and the S4 always breaks. Obviously I should just keep both and get the BRZ anyway.

    I need to go to the library to get a new book. It's a short walk... 10 minutes or so... and i want to take Iz, but she's not allowed in the library so i'd have to tie her outside, which i refuse to do. Sigh. I guess i'll drive. Walking is boring without the pug.

    That's pretty sound logic to me. Also, my husband would kill for a BRZ and I would kill to have a GTI in my life again.

    I am SO cold :(. I try to go out and deal with it but I'm cold for the rest of the day. My electric heater says it's 70 in the room, but I am so chilled.

    I sat in and played with a BRZ at the auto show today. So much want. Adam wants me to go test drive one now. -_-

    Buy a GTI! The trade-in value on mine is a whopping $2,000. :eek: You could probably get a Mk3 or Mk4 for cheap. Get an S4 while you're at it. The trade-in value on that is around $2,100. :rofl1:

    Lol, yes. Volkswagen GTI, Audi S4, Subaru BRZ.

    Cars.

    You could always get a sling or put her in a carrier like I have seen a lot of people do their small dogs.

    I would possibly do the carrier since I'm in there for all of 2 minutes usually, however mine is making its way back to me through the mail.

    They don't allow animals in at all unless its a service animal. Though we are trying to start a literacy program through my therapy dog program.

    I'm trying to decide whether or not to announce Logan is a service dog on facebook. The only people who don't know yet are my coworkers at the vet clinic (except for one person, who saw us at Walmart, but she hasn't told anyone else). It's been 6 months since Logan started working, and that's roughly what I was going to say, along with a few pictures. I just don't know though. On one hand I don't want people to get upset over it, but on the other hand...what are they going to do, fire me? One of my goals for the year is to get out of that place, anyway.... But...ugh. I just don't know.


    Please don't. Just because other people do it doesn't make it okay.

    I wouldn't likely do it.

    It's just a huge bummer that its so close and I'd love to walk there but I find walking without a dog extremely dull. So I drive. Which isn't good for me or the environment. Plus it's a smaller branch and is very quiet at the times I go (I arrange to go when the classes at the high school it's connected to are in session).

    I say do it. The longer you wait, the better chance you'll run into someone else or your coworker spills the beans. Wouldn't you rather it come on your terms? I sent out an email to all my coworkers when I started training with Saxon. One of my coworkers refuses to acknowledge it, though. She always changes the subject when I talk about training and such, it's really odd.

    I see both sides of that lol.

    On the one hand, sometimes I just want to post in big HUGE letters that I'm autistic and have issues because of it, and for people to get the heck over it. Because I haven't even told most of my family when I got diagnosed. I actually haven't even told them I was going to see a dr.

    Then, on the other hand, I'm a giant chicken.

    I'm leaning towards doing it, for those reasons. The reason I'm even considering it is because we had someone come in Friday with a new puppy he wants to train as his service dog. Based on my experience with him and what I saw from the puppy, I'm pretty sure they can do it if he works hard (OMG I LOVED that puppy!). But anyway, I was the one called up to give this guy the run-down - everyone at work knows I'm the one to talk to about service dog issues. Thing is, they presume this is from research in preparation to go to Bergin U (which never ended up happening...yet), and not because I actually have and trained a service dog.

    I bought a battery charger and what I thought were 4 AA rechargeable batteries for my camera, since it eats batteries so fast. I get home, open the package to put them in my camera, and...two are AA, two are AAA >.< I also bought a package of four AAA for my phone speaker I use to listen to music at work. Now I have 6 AAA with no use for 2 of them, and a camera in need of two more AA batteries.

    I never really get too angry or physically violent and maybe it's the pregnancy hormones, but holy GOD this girl is pushing on my last buttons and I am seriously going to hurt her. Ughhhh.

    I say tell them because I think it would be less awkward then if you say, by chance ran I to someone you knew at a store somewhere & then they will be all "why do you have a service dog?" It's easier to explain when you aren't so on the spot .


    What's wrong with doggy slings? It IMHO is better then say, tying her outside or driving the car which is as Mandy said ... Not good for her of the environment, I think the slings are ok, but the purse-thing is a little much IMO but some people like them which is why I suggested them.

    Apparently Implanon is teaming up with my uterus and they've decided shark week is never happening ever again.

    Good news? No.

    Because I still end up PMSing at random.
