Vacation Playlist and Other Random Things

We are ready to go!  I just dropped off Derby at the kennel.  Normally I would RoverNight while we are away, but since we'll be gone for 9 days that isn't an option.  Plus, as you've seen on this blog in the past, Derby could stand to have a little training in her life.  Something that I just don't know how to do.  She will spend the next 15 days at Dynamic Dogs Chicago learning basic obedience, how to walk on a leash properly, how to deal with separation anxiety and many other things.  I was super sad dropping her off, but she was running around like a wild woman in their huge outdoor space when I left, so I know she'll have fun :)  And I will blog about the whole experience in a couple of weeks!

Now onto the music!  We made a few mix CDs to take with us to the Turks & Caicos.  The rental car will likely be more than a few years old which means no ipod hookup!  So we paid a visit to mix tapes of yore & updated them for a fun, beachy set list.  We really do love all kinds of music and that is reflected in our selections!

I'm really interested to hear how the dog training thing goes! Should be interesting. And I hope you have a blast on your trip! :)

I'm curious about the dog training as well. If our girl, Sunday, wasn't so terrified of new people I would love that. As it is I think we'll just have to take a class with her. She's great most of the time, but she's been awful towards other dogs in our condo building. I think it's a territorial thing?

Have fun on your vacation! That sounds absolutely wonderful.
