NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Wolves Win! Wolves Win!




It was a nail-biter, but the Wolves pulled off the win. We're 1-0! Yay! Now my throat hurts from yelling, my hands hurt from clapping and high-fiving, and my face hurts from smiling. I can't wait to do it again on the 15th!

Until then, on the book front, I've got three murder mysteries going at the same time. I've discovered it's a good thing I'm not a detective, because I find myself getting my cases mixed up. Just for the record: In my car on audio CD, Tempe Brennan is hot on the trail of a murderous Satan worshipper and battling her former alcoholic demons (Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs). At work on audio CD, Virgil Flowers is investigating a string of murders involving Vietnam vets and lusting over everything female (Heat Lightning by John Sandford). And on my nightstand, Alex Delaware is currently mystified by a serial killer who removes the victims' right hands (Bones by Jonathan Kellerman). Yeah, it gets confusing, but on the upside? They are all quite good! More info coming once I finish them up.

On the dog front, Skye and Max will both be competing on Saturday. Max will be working toward more Championship Q's due to his new status as an Enthusiast. I think Skye might be in a position to finish up his Level 3 Handler Games Title. We're thinking of switching him to Enthusiast next year just to cut him a break on his jump height. Since we just do agility for fun, there's no sense in risking wearing out his joints at a higher jump height. After Saturday's trial, I think we're done until April. Once the snow flies, I won't be able to get Max out to walk as much as I should between runs, so we'll most likely take a break from competing until it starts warming up again. Not that the boys don't love their time in the snow. . . .


I call this one "THE SNOW SHARK". :-) I love the look on Max's face. Boys. What do you do with them?

Ladytink ~ Thanks! It's one of my favorites. Peter took it after a huge March snowfall.

Andi ~ I think we're playing your boys on Saturday. (You're a Mavericks girl, right?) And Max & Skye say thanks! They said they'll make you proud. :-)

Oh your photo mmade me chuckle - I love that look on Max's face, it reminded me of my dog Ben!

Charley & Books Please ~ Thanks! Peter took a ton of photos that day, and some of them are really fantastic. The snow was very deep and fresh and the boys were having a ball tearing after each other through it.

How do you listen to books at work?? Can you really concentrate on everything at once??

Joanna ~ I'm mostly visually scanning and formatting for work, so listening is no problem. If I have to actually read something or write an email, I have to turn the player off.
