    Yeah, we're lucky because the other assistant manager is also a R+ dog trainer, and the GM leaves this kind of stuff up to us. So we put a stop to it right away.

    But we have a new employee who came from another place where they rolled dogs for things like barking or jumping. Are you KIDDING me???!!! From what I understand, we seem to be one of the only daycares not largely employing things like alpha rolls. :(

    I am freaking exhausted. But gosh darn it, I do not want to go to bed. Just another crazy day at work... full schedule, very few of them being routine appointments, a random surgery in the middle of the afternoon and unexpected euthanasias. Emotionally and physically, I am drained.

    And I thought I could put off cleaning the rat cage until tomorrow, but gosh as I'm sitting here it stinks. Frustrating the heck out of me because I never used to smell them, but the past week or two they always smell like pee. Grrrr.

    Very close friend who is like a grandmother to me has cancer. I can't talk to anybody IRL about it cause she doesn't want anybody to know. Ugh. I'm heartbroken :(

    My roommate has decided that being a moody, passive-aggressive douchecanoe is acceptable behavior.

    And I just got smacked with a couple massive medical bills right after agreeing to upping my rent in an attempt to be nice. This is on top of having a really bad month last month due to the accident, so yeah. Feeling all sorts of lovely.

    I think I may have just been way overcharged for frodo's fluoxetine. Ouch, right in the wallet!

    Also, got paid yesterday and now my monies are fleeing from my possession. **** necessities!

    Southpaw, I am meeting SaraB in crystal for a cat show! Text me if you want address for it! It goes until 5 today and it's gonna be awesome :p

    Add some tears and dark eye bags to that and it's the same for me Renee lol.

    I don't like morning group training classes...*yawns* especially on a Saturday....I keep drifting in and out of consciousness while practicing formal heelwork.

    Zander is a big fluffmonster at the moment. Hair...everywhere. I can't pet him, can't let him lay on anything, and every time he shakes it looks like it's snowing Zaner-Hair.

    Obvious choice for this overnight issue is obviously groom him out, right?

    I can't find his brush. It's just...no where to be found. At this critical time. I. Can't. Find. It.

    ETA: Sinus issues. And my arm is particularly painful today! I had a hard time finding a comfortable position to sleep in last night without bothering it.

    I'm just feeling really... stuck at the moment. Just not sure what I'm supposed to do next. I have all these plans but they seem just a hair out of reach always.

    I also just noticed Zander is starting to look like a sausage. WTF? How am I supposed to feed him LESS than what he is already on? As it is, he is going without food 2-3 days out of the week, Raw scraps on 2-3 days, and barely 1 1/2 to 2 cups of kibble on the rest of the days.

    I need a treadmill for this air fern of a husky.

    I know the feeling. :( I had work and college lined up and now we are going to Italy. It's a great opportunity, but at the same time I'm not going to be able to finish my BA for another 2 years or more. I'm not looking forward to just doing nothing for the next couple of years.

    I hope something comes up for you!

    Is there any way you could take some online classes/credits? I'm not sure what your degree will be in - but maybe you could enroll in a school in Italny and get some credits towards your degree? I know many schools here in Europe offer english classes.
