Update for a neglected blog

A lot has been going on in nancyrosettaville.

Hubby had knee surgery but is recovering nicely. Arthroscopic to be exact. We even have a DVD of the inside of the knee parts of the surgery, and the surgeon actually narrates the footage as he is talking to Scott. It's pretty cool. Scott is doing very well. He only used crutches for a few hours, then on to a cane for a day. Really an amazing recovery.

Mom continues to be a part time job for me. I visit her as much as I can, and have recently been having more pleasant visits, she is doing better in some aspects and worse in others. I have been dealing with her personal/financial issues as well, they had started to take a toll on me, but I think things are beginning to settle, at least I hope that is the case.

Rusty has started to bark at me when I sit on the couch. It's only been about a week of this new nonsense. I am not usually afraid of him when he does this, but the last couple of days, his breath with the barks have left my hair standing on end. The shock collar* seems to stop this behavior, we don't even have to use the electric part of it, just putting it on him does the trick. (*we only use the sound part...not the shock part)

There's the quick update.

Remote Shock Collars are one of the most effective, easiest and most humane training aids available. Remote Shock Collars are placed on a dog's neck, allowing a trainer to deliver small static corrections of varying strength by remote control. The correction the dog gets from the remote dog training collar is no different than static from walking on carpet. The benefits of working with a remote dog training collar is the trainer can immediately correct a dog's mistakes at a distance far greater than leash training allows. A Shock Collar is a safe, effective and humane way to train your dog. A Dog Training Collar is a safe, effective and humane way to train your dog.
