    Woke up early and took the dogs out for a walk; leash training Marley to walk on a flat collar is coming to fruition! She is basically pairing up tandem with Sawyer, though she still pulls like a Clydsdale to get to her favorite popping spot.

    Went to take a shower and discovered we had NO water. No hot, no cold, just air in the pipes. Turns out the mainline had sprung a leak and the city shut off the whole block.

    Had to go pick some customers up from the airport, load their daughters 9 suitcases into the XT and hope there was still room for them. It worked like a dream and scored some extra brownie points, which came in suuuuper handy later on. This guy *loved* me, hates our entire finance department and was the most bipolar customer I've had in a while. His wife and daughter both apologized and congratulated me for dealing with him over the last week. This entire deal has been a migraine in the making, so I'm glad some of it paid off.

    A couple of salesmen at our sister store got into a fight, which ended with one essentially pile-driving the other over his shoulder and into the concrete. Hello hospital visit! Dude's wife is super pissed and got the cops involved.

    There's a big snowstorm heading in, so I'll get to play with my new Subaru tomorrow! And in the course of plowing the lot, we're going to try and craft a snowboard area and entertain ourselves tomorrow.

    Marley is my bf's lab/boxer mix girl. She's a really cool dog and actually reminds me a lot of Virgo, or what Virgo would have been like without the PTSD. Sawyer just adores her to death and is helping me teach her how to be an off-leash dog by herding her back towards us whenever she gets beyond that invisible boundary.

    Here's a video from the other week: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151336496300963&l=1485350543329386425

    She cuddles really well and sleeps curled up behind my knees every night in bed. Still getting her used to the camera, so more photos will be forthcoming eventually.
