Miles has been groomed and before long, will again be a matted mess. Whether it’s a stream or a puddle, he loves water. He jumps in, wallows, and his multi-layered coat captures residue.
Right now, he’s gorgeous.
He has a strong herding instinct and is very vocal, well actually very-creatively vocal, anytime I care for our horses without his assistance.
Yesterday, a customer in the store where I work part-time played for me a video of her Husky “talking” to her. Huskies are wonderful talkers, and hers made spectacular sounds.
A sudden snowstorm meant that lunching with a challenging supervisor was impossible. I needed during yesterday’s lunchtime to come home to let dogs outside and feed horses. We are targeting Friday for lunch.
We’re very different individuals. I’m an entrenched “people person”, he’s an entrenched “numbers guy” with an abrasive supervisorial style. To him, I spend too much time with customers, and to me often, too little time. I’m not optimistic for an hour of talking to gain better collaboration.
One tries and hopes for the best.
Dear Friends: Enjoy this sunny but very cold day. Diana

The supervisor might be the reason the store has such a high employee turnover. You are much to lovely a person and much more highly educated than I’m sure he is to tolerate that type of environment Diana. Just curious…who exactly is the store supervisor you are referring to?
It was a uncomfortable relationship that admittedly I helped to create. Now we have talked and are teaming well. Sharing experiences, perceptions, and feelings, opens a path to “problems solved!”
