I succumbed to a coupon from a local groomer, and Thane had his first official grooming yesterday. He was very soft and fluffy afterward. :)
I signed him up for his second round of obedience classes, starting this Tuesday. I'm hopeful that this will go a long way toward continuing to polish his (gradually improving) behavior.
I've got a bit of a cold today...and, as with many other situations (bad weather, etc.), the thought crossed my mind that in a couple years, I may have an assortment of animals that will want their dinner whether I'm sick or not!
But I'm not a farmer yet, so I rested most of the day and only did a half-shift at work. :P
