Heh, sorry guys was away for a while. I think i just felt I needed a bit of a break. I think for a while I might just pop in once a week, so if I'm not around as much, that's why.

Well.... the pup I chose is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. They're gorgeous dogs, prsonality and looks wise. I pick him up tomorrow!

As for the course, it's a postgraduate clinical psychology course to go on top of my current PhD. It will involve coursework and clinical placements (bit like an internship).

As for my food...well I've been feeling a bit wonky lately. I don't think I've been sleeping well and I need to get back into a better routine I think. We've been flat out doing fencing work in preparation for puppy, and shopping for Chrissy (errggh) and things have just been a little out of kilter. And the choccie has snuck back in. But my weight has stayed fairly constant because I have been accounting as best as possible with my eating for my choccie.

Hope everyone else is well!

Congratulations Tegan on the pup. I used to have a rhodesian ridgeback cross irish wolfhound (yeah - she was big) and she was the best dog, the kids loved her, and she had amazing patience.

we had a ridgeback when i was growing up. the most gorgeous dog ever! he was so well-behaved, a good guard dog (awesome bark & just his pure size!), but would love anyone to death once they were in the house!) and so gentle as well.

i can't wait to see pics, tegan!

good to know they can be well behaved - they do have a rep of being wilful and mischievous! But I do realise it depends a lot on the individual dog and owners! The mum dog is lovely (as is the other censored they own who had a litter a couple weeks after this litter). They had 22 puppies all up within a 3 week period! Imagine that!

They had planned the mating with the mother of my pup for a long time, but had to also mate the other censored too because they wanted another litter from her to continue her line, but they realised she was starting to get a bit on in age and has an old injury they worried about her developng arthritis in. SO 2 litters in one season it was! They're in a great position to care for them all though and they're all healthy and happy and putting on weight like little body builders!

I'll be sure to post piccies asap!

OMG!! A dog....don't get it as it will destroy life as you know it....

My worst moment came with a phone call from the manager of Bi-lo Supermarket: "Sir, do you have a dog named Gino". I had to go down and catch him as he was running up and down the aisles cos he'd got off the chain.

And I'll never forget the neighbour yelling through the front door: "If my dog is pregnant you'll be paying for it!!"

But now I can't live without Gino. He is a spirit dog who protects our family and my energy. You get home from work and he always comes out of his kennel to say hi no matter how hot it is.

Dawn, now that we know your are a headshrink could we open a "Dear Dawn" page and send you all our problems for you to practice on? I could go on and on..... :lol:

oopps, did I say clinical psychology? I meant, um, clinical garbage collection. Yeah, that was it.... LOL

No, seriously, I'm nowhere near qualified to be answering people's questions in anything other than the general sense.

and LOL about Gino! Dogs can be little terrors but absolute angels at the same time! But I've been looking forward to a dog for years. I miss my old childhood doggie still :(
