Practicing Acceptance

Yes, it’s pitch time again. Those of you not on social media may have missed that the e-version of Bound in Shadow is now available for pre-order. It feels like it’s been forever. Release date is officially March 6 for the e-book. You can pre-order from just about any place e-books are sold, but to make it easier for you, here are some of the most popular spots:


Amazon Apple Books Barnes & Noble Kobo


And remember, if you read it and enjoy it, the best way to help out an author is to let others know and to leave a review. Reviews don’t have to be anything intense. Just a couple lines on why you liked the book. Which hopefully you will.

On other fronts… I think we can collectively agree this weather bites.


This combined with sub-zero temps makes any real training impossible.


Good thing there are chores to do. And because there’s little else right now, you get a barrage of photos (mainly because I scored a free Canon Powershot and wanted to put it through it’s paces).


“Hey, are you coming? We’ve got work to do!”


Granted, there’s not really a lot for the daily designated Chore Dog to do because as soon as any of them make an appearance my sheep decide not crowding the wheel barrow is probably their wisest move. Still, it’s one-on-one time with me and working on downs, being quiet and calm around the stock, and pushing. Especially where Linus is concerned.


I do believe Linus has never come to terms with the fact that he was born a sheep.


He believes he should escort the wheelbarrow whilst sneaking a snack.


Finn, however, has started to insist Linus behave. Something Linus is not so good at.


Finn is getting pretty adamant about it, however, and Linus reluctantly complies.


“My turn?”


Dillon holding his ground against Cello and giving his best Gandalf impersonation… “You shall not pass!”


This weather and life in general are really forcing me to accept things as they happen and not try to force the issue. That’s something I work on when training as well. Believe it or not, I’m better at it when working with my dogs than I am when dealing with plans and things in general not moving along as swiftly or smoothly as I’d like. They are moving, though, so that’s a good thing.

I know a lot of folks around the country are being hit with some nasty weather. I hope everyone stays safe and warm. Like everything else, we’ll muddle through. Remember…
