Last night we shuffled into the house after mucho car time. My butt felt like a waffle iron. My husband says it looked like a waffle iron too. He should die a long and painful death, don't you think?
Bonnie was exhausted. I was exhausted and wore all my mascara off my face before we reached Hermiston. Did you know that water proof mascara isn't resistant to tears?
I wasn't really crying... nah...I was sobbing like a two year old. I held it together until I talked to Vicki on the phone. I had proudly stated to Vicki "I am not crying". Then got off the phone and the dam let loose. It was pathetic. I would mention that I ate an entire bag of Cheetos too - but that would be gross. Imagine that, a woman driving through the Blue Mountains, car loaded up with puppies (transporting for BC rescue), one tired Bonnie, sobbing... all the while shoving Cheetos Puffs in her face. Just past La Grande, Oregon I realized I was out of anything to drink. I am ashamed to admit this...I was forced to drink from the dog water jug *shuudder*. Today I couldn't get my wedding ring on, my eyes are swollen darn near shut and I am worried I may have given my self some weird dog-water borne disease.
Why was I such a disgusting mess?
I left Brynn with Dianne Deal for training. Patrick and Dianne decided that Brynn is ready for the pressure of training.
I have one question...am I?
Ugh...even typing this makes me want to throw myself down on the floor, kicking and screaming. Not really, but almost. *insert pathetic self pitying sigh here*
I miss her. I miss her little way of walking with me to every room, looking up at me with this goofy look on her face that says "I am with you...right here...what next?". Every border collie owner out there knows the 'look' I am talkin' bout.
So before I tell you all about the BEST CLINIC EVER I will share this video I shot of Patrick working with Brynn a bit.
Sorry about the crappy videography - When Brynn ran at me to check in - the camera went up to the ceiling and I am too tired to edit it out.
Doesn't she look awesome?
Already this morning Dianne sent me a quick update - Brynn is settling in and adjusting. Oh gawd....I am crying again.
