Good – Eliot and Pascale are getting along really well lately. Eliot’s new medication makes him more playful, and I’ve witnessed them wrestling together in the yard on more than one occasion.
Bad – Eliot went after BT again last night very aggressively. He injured her remaining eye, although not very badly and she should be 100% fine (hopefully). This attack came out of the blue with all the current medication and training we’ve been doing in place.
Fact – My husband first reaction was that if it were up to him, he would have Eliot put down. These two dogs have lived together completely incident free for six years, and now Eliot hates BT. They will be separated from now on, but I don’t have any answers past that.
Good – I am physically healthy and employed. Things could be worse for me.
Bad – Emotionally I am exhausted. I only publicly talk about some things on this blog, so you’ll just have to imagine the rest. I feel like I can’t take any more.
Fact – I am not in a very good mental state while I am writing this post.
Good – Before the dog drama, I had a great lesson on Saturday with Simon. I was able to give him a spa day, and spent about two hours pulling mane, clipping, etc.
Bad – I am showing this weekend, and I feel completely unprepared for it. Dog drama 2.0 has also taken any most excitement and joy out of horses for the moment. The barn was just a place I could use to escape my house yesterday.
Fact – When I clip Simon’s ears, somehow they appear even larger. “The better to hear you with, Mom” so he says.
I know it’s not much, but it’s all I’ve got right now guys.
