Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Katie here


Hello everybody!

Hello everybody!

Hey you guys!  I bet you’ve been missing ME.  ME ME ME ME ME ME…oh wait. I get carried away sometimes but you know it’s all about me.  My Mama has been soooooo busy that I hardly ever see her.  And when she comes home from work she’s usually too tired to play.  But I make her play anyway.  She can’t ignore me….not me!  I don’t give up either.  I have an endless supply of toys to drop at her feet.  And while she’s at work I practice the BIG EYES and sharp whine so that I can make her crazy when she finally shows up.

Guess what?  It works!  And for the small fee of a few dog biscuits I can teach all of you doggies the skill set.  Oh wait.  You say you already  have that down?  Well!  Doggies rule!

So anyway….Mama and I are going to do a big dog show this weekend.  On Sunday we’re going to try to get our Advanced Rally title!  Mama says she’s stressed again.  Sigh.  I don’t know why she gets like this.  It’s just another day to spend watching people and doggies do stuff.  I like to go to these, and when we’re in the ring I watch my Mama very carefully.  If she can just read all those crazy signs correctly I promise to do what she asks.  So it’s all up to her.

Me?  I’m just having a good time with my Dad while my Mama is at work.  And I’ve been dreaming about Mama and me going camping next spring.  It’s almost spring, right?  Well it should be.  After all I’m the princess…and I decree it’s almost spring!

Cause it’s all about me.  Yes it is.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Sigh – that’s my girl – the Katie Princess – no wonder I Mr Reilly totally adore you. Yes – you know “how to work it” to get the best out of the Momma. We agree – it is time for spring – we are tired of hearing Mom say it’s too cold for walkies.


  2. There’s no pretense about Katie, is there?


  3. I just had to show this to TNP to show him that I not alone in my skills! He thinks no other dog must be like me, but we shelties all got the look down, right?
    Good luck at the show Katie! Don’t let Mom mess things up. BOL!

  4. Oh Katie! How we’ve missed you.

    You and your mama are going to do great at the dog show! YOu are both…..opps, sorry, Oreo is banging my leg with his toy, gotta run….


  5. We look forward to hearing about your trip to the dog show.


  6. Yes, pretty Princess Katie! You’re so right about “doggy rules”. I practise those tricks on my mama everyday too and I can assure you that they all WORK. The only thing is I don’t do agility and I can’t show others how smart I am in the agility ring. Never mind that, I’m still my mama’s girl and she is my mama.

    Good luck, Katie! Show the people and doggies that you are a beautiful princess with a smart brain. Hope your mom reads all the signs right. I bet she will as she is your clever mama.



  7. She and my Dallas have totally perfected the “puppy dog eyes” look! Impossible to ignore them — then again, who’d want to?!!


  8. Hi Katie! My name is Dakota and I am a Sheltie too! I read about you over on Eva The Sheltie Princess’s blog…I am her boyfriend 🙂
    I am following you and hope you will visit me too!
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota


  9. Mommy is ready for spring flowers.
